A very fine evening.
I have not resigned as New York Governor today and nor have I presented a Budget. That aside it has been quite an eventful day. I left for work at 6.00 this morning and drove to Birmingham (ish) which was chocca with 021s all saying 'Ooooooooorrrrrrooooite?' to each other. I had a gander at the Fort Retail Park and it was a bit grey, really.
I worked in our own store just a sneak off the M42 and I put in a decent day's effort.
Welcomingly back to Bristol 12 hours after I left and out for dinner tonight with 59 other people, one of whom was a bit pissed and worrying some of the others, but he was just a bit stumbly really and nothing else and his mate kept him in check anyhow. I contributed some effort for what was in essence a free gig by doing a stack of washing up and dismantling and putting away a dozen tables after the event (and delighting a small person in being "reeeeeeeeeeeeally tall!").
Several women took it upon themselves to express surprise at a bloke volunteering to wash up but it seemed only a common courtesy to me, rather than just sloping off. Back home now and having one a-beers before bed.
Dinner this evening was a Lenten Agape which I had to Google prior to the event, my schoolboy Latin/Greek not running to a guess at the second word. It was a good deal more ordinary and sociable than Google has it to be, and far less serious and I am happy I went along.
Lummox is here tomorrow - Cork arrives in BS5 via Malaysia!
Late News: I have decided to have one more a-beers and watch 1960's Spiderman cartoons - I have the '67 collection on DVD which I bought in Los Angeles and haven't watched for yonks! I can have a bath in the morning instead.
