London Lies and Wax- work Bruce Forsyth

Irrational urges to go to Madam Tausauds in the middle of the night are keeping me awake. Why I feel the need to stare at a wax-work of Bruce Forsyth at 4am I don't know, but it's brought my attention to London's biggest lie.. The City That Never Sleeps. Many times pre lithium) I've got up in the middle of the night, got dressed, called a cab just to wander around town looking for somewhere still open, one time only finding Brian Tilsy from Corrie's club still open, dance till I dropped (alone, sober) before tucking myself back in again. 

Just as there is happy hour, they should be bipolar hour, somewhere between 4 and 8am, for us to spin around the dance floor which is cornered off.  Hmm.. maybe this could feature in my next letter to Boris Johnson.

The Cheers Report

If you're like me, have a mild obsession with statistics, graphs, pie charts, etc and a moderate obsession with alcohol, you'll love this. I came across this report whilst doing some research on mental health and alcohol use for an article. I wanted to copy and paste bits for you to read but there's so much I think that's important, so, I recommend you print, staple, pour yourself ONE glass of your favourite drink and read, not all at once as there's a lot to take in, just click on the link below.
