Meep meep

My mind has been going at a hundred miles an hour today.  It has also been conflicting with itself.  The entire walk home I couldn’t stop thinking about everything: work, rowing, money, holidays, the weather…  I wasn’t really thinking about any of them properly though and one minute I would be thinking, I want to go running, the next I would be thinking I want to eat a massive curry and just slob out.  As it is, I’m making fish
