BRIDGET (V.O.)

Still, not to dwell on the

negatives. Many positives to note.

Am down to ideal weight! Am 685

days without a single cigarette. Am

hitting government target for

recommended intake of alcohol. 2-3

units per day.

A good looking man clocks her and takes her in as she walks -

she smiles to herself once he has passed.

BRIDGET (V.O.)

Have top job as producer of award

winning intelligent persons news

programme.

passes the smallest Italian restaurant in the world, and

waves at GIANNI, the owner.

property ladder in now-fashionable

Borough Market...

7 EXT./INT. BRIDGET’S FLAT. CONTINUOUS 7

She trips up over a brand new, unused bicycle in the hallway.

Looks at it guiltily. She enters her sitting room just as a

fast train bullets past the windows, shaking the walls.

BRIDGET(V.O.)

...cleverly acquired just before

the new-improved transport links.

And even though I am still single,

I have NOT acquired a cat.

Then she opens a ‘funny’ birthday card featuring an old lady

and a cat.

She enters her make-shift office and goes to the shelf where

her old diaries are. She rifles through them to find a

photograph of her and Daniel, which is placed between the

pages. She looks at it mournfully before her eyes settle on

the diary entry on the page behind the photo... “Reasons why

Mark Darcy and I could never work” followed by a list of

reasons.
