Rayandlynn’s Weblog

Despite the terrible news of yesterday evening, life has to go on. Today we’re looking down in an area called Highgate. It has a large Victorian cemetery. Two large Victorian cemeteries, in fact. But it also has fantastic views out over London, the Millennium Wheel and the square mile. I might even be able to see the building where Ray will be working. We hope the ‘estate agents’ have the right sort of place for us. They call it ‘property’ over here, which makes it sound like something out of Charles Dickens.

Lisa seems almost happy now. That makes us suspect something is going on. She hasn’t left the house, though. She hasn’t really left her room. Perhaps she’s reading some of those creepy novels that we saw in there. You know her morbid tendencies. It’s possible that it has something to do with the deaths of Betty, Joey and Mary Jane. We would prefer not to think that.



  1. Lisa is not reading books.

    She’s doing this:


    Maybe you should spend some more time with your daughter.

  2. Dear Ray and Lynn,
    sorry to barge in in a moment where you’re upset and surely shocked. However, I must compliment you for your courage – I so wish I’d had parents like you when I was Lisa’s age. She will be glad you moved, in time, and will grow to love Blighty like we do.

    I understand this is a petty detail in your current turmoil, but I couldn’t help having a look at the pic your daughter posted of the books in “her” room. (Oh, it’s so tragic!).

    The book in the back seems to be PD James’ “A Taste for Death”, which is definitely creepy and wildly unsuitable for a teenager. Moreover, what is that horrible big yellow book – “Dead Kid Songs”? What title is that? A novel about dead children? I suggest you remove that offensive thing out of Lisa’s room ASAP.

    Lots of love!
