Monday, Monday…

    Looking at my post count (and some of the comments πŸ˜‰ ), it seems it’s been a while since I posted.

    Oh well…

    Had a great weekend – spent it in London with Marina (there’s that name again). Friday night we spent in The World’s End pub in Camden Town – Friday night is music night, and the band was really good…few drinks there, then back to Marina’s (it takes longer to drive about 5 miles in London than it takes for me to travel by train home – about 65 miles).

    Saturday started off very rainy, so we jumped on a bus (London public transport is great!) and went off to Islington and had a lovely pub meal in The York and watched the egg chasing rugby (very disappointing – England seemed happy to let Wilko kick us level rather than going for the killer tries – we ended up getting one anyway, so a result of 16-9 was good). A few pints of Guinness (for me – Marina had a mulled cider then switched to coffee – lightweight) later and we went to the cinema to see ‘Harry Brown‘ – great film, shows London’s estates as they really are πŸ˜‰ (I lived in New Cross, Lewisham a few years back for a couple of months). After the film, we went to another good pub (can you see a pattern emerging here?) – the Camden Head where we got rather drunk πŸ™‚ then back on the bus home…

    Sunday was a great day – sunny and bright so we took a walk across Victoria Park and had breakfast watching the birds on the lake. I played with the squirrels (totally amazed Marina how I could get them so close and even on my shoulder πŸ™‚ – I’m good with animals, probably better than I am with people).

    And so, back to work today – and guess what? πŸ™‚ I’m off to Spain tomorrow, back late Wednesday. Couple of hours work out there, then lots of me time in the sun topping up my tan πŸ™‚

    I love my job…

    1. Sounds idyllic. Enjoy Spain! I shall keep the wheels turning here in the Antipodes.

    2. And the best thing? I’m flying to Reus, but flying back from Girona (about 100 miles away with Barcelona central to both places), so Ryanair are putting me up in a nice hotel, then letting me have a hire car to get from one place to t’other…

      NOTE TO SELF: They drive on the stupid side of the road out there…

    5. Somebody’s in l-o-o-o-o-o-v-e…! Good to see you posting again, snee. Have an awesome time in Spain!

      1. Actually, as someone who knows himself really well – I’m not, I’m just enjoying the moment πŸ™‚

    6. snee, do you still have the screws in your ankle or did they remove them? If they removed them, did you keep them?
      Does your scar still hurt?

      1. They took the screws and plate out – I asked to keep them, but as they’re made of titanium and are very expensive, they are recycled…

        And yes, my ankle does hurt – especially in the cold. It’s really aching today and it’s not even that cold…
