Now we come to the bit about having a few toys lose in the attic, I suppose the best thing in a case like this is to admit to the problem in the first instance.

The other day one of our own dear councillors and a member of our esteemed cabinet seemed to think I was developing delusions about the council; “I think the mistake you make is in believing that every aspect of life is micro-managed by the council” see

I believe the trickcyclist people call this querulant delusions, this is something like a persecution complex, well today I have to admit to once again thinking that Thanet District Council are persecuting Ramsgate.

I looked at the council’s homepage and although I could see an article there about Heritage Open Days in Margate, these querulant delusions completely prevented me from seeing the one about Heritage Open Days in Ramsgate.

My Therapist Johann Christian Reil, has produced the following therapy schedule.

First plunging me (the lunatic) into a bath full of live eels..

And then showing me a Katzenklavier, or cat-clavichord (pictured above), an instrument played by pressing keys attached to nails which in turn strike the tails of a series of cats arranged with care so as to miaow in tonally sequenced pain.”

I have been having the therapy and I am expecting to see the Ramsgate article appear there at any moment.
Update I am afraid that things are getting worse I have just suffered the delusion that the council’s Twitter update about “Shop Local in Thanet” says only, shop local in Margate, see

This sort of thing is taking its toll on the eels and the cats.
