An update:

Derrick has been working like a trojan the past couple of months to keep up with the orders. People were told about his creations on facebook too and that led to more orders. He has now reached his target of £2,000 + a little bit more, and is now taking a long long rest. He will still take orders as he has always done, but in his time and at a different pace and will then be giving the money to the Street Children of Kolkata, India.

Dear FriendsWeek thirty five. So no apology required from me as my prediction turned out to be spot on. Public sector i.e. KEY WORKERS will have a pay freeze. Not only that, but overseas aid to be cut from .7% of GDP to .5%. I struggle with the priorities of politicians at times.But the bad news goes on.
