I thought it was going to be a quiet weekend...I'm not too sure of that now.

It didn't take me as long as normal to get home from work - I didn't think it odd at the time - the cars parked up in the petrol stations, queued up at the side of the road. Idiots, panic buying, I thought. One of them just parked up at the traffic lights - car empty - hadn't even put his hazard lights on.

[ profile] lupercal was fine when I got home. We were thinking about going walking this weekend. We had dinner. We watched TV - there wasn't anything on the news. Friday - the end of a long week. I went to get some beer.

I just thought the kids at the top of the road were stoned. They're always there, on a Friday night, hanging around outside the shops. I thought it was just a friendly hug - some gang thing. It wasn't until I came out of the off-licence that I realised what was going on. I'd have done something, honest to God I would - but it was too late by then. There wasn't anything I could do. I got in the car and drove home.

That's an hour and a half ago now. We've closed the curtains, turned off the lights. We've left the TV on, though the volume's right down - low enough that we can hear them outside. Not bitten though. I'm shaking - I'm not sure what else to write. We're losing chanels now. News 24's gone down. It looks like the only thing we can watch is QI.

One of the cats is missing - we don't think They can get in through the cat flap so we're going to leave it open. We're not sure whether to stay down here or go upstairs.

I'm really scared.

You know - I think it's over. I think we're going to be okay. Have you got through it in Manchester?
