Monday

So have just returned from what started as 'post work' drinks and ended as 'still being in the pub at closing time' drinks. Not perhaps the best start to the week, but still, it was an interesting night. Met C's colleagues (it was really her 'post work' drinks that I crashed) and realised that it is always interesting to be able to picture the people that someone works with.

Had a great weekend. Parents and sister came up on Saturday for lunch, followed by a view of 'Manet to Picasso' at the National Gallery and tea and pastries at Harrods102 before they returned to Berkshire. We then went to Hampstead on Sunday to watch Manchester Utd almost beat Chelsea at football before supper at an oriental restaurant. A lovely, busy but ultimately relaxing weekend as we managed to return home in time to catch Planet Earth and then watch a lovely film together (Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astair in Funny Face.

I know this is brief and hastily typed, but M is cooking supper and I really want to join him. Today would have been great if not for people not being able to hold a 'discussion' without the need to involve personal insults...

And I thought Chelsea failed to beat Man Utd

Chelsea almost beat Man Utd, even.

Well, Manchester Utd scored first, which is why I put it that way round. But whichever, they both failed to win! I don't really mind who won; to be honest, I was only there with M and even then I went shopping in the second half...

Cooking supper at 12.03am? You party animal, you!

Aye, true enough.
Like the blog, tho' it does make me a wee bit homesick for London.
