Extract

I go into the living room, put the shoppin on the couch, lift me stump so that the falsie thumps to the floor, turn on some lights an the telly an close the curtains then turn on the gas fire. Crouch down to rub me hands together in front of the sputterin flames and then remember that that's somethin I can't do. Can't even do that. See what I mean? It's shite only havin one arm.
