Good party

Pleasant party at Sion and Jan's last night. Arrived early enough to go help Jan get changed, and was so terribly helpful in this process (well, I narrowed it down to "shiny" and she kind of made it up from there). Had a couple of glasses of wine and some of the glorious parkin and the ginger chocolate and then just mostly spent the evening relaxing. Had a very pleasant massage from Simes (though explaining just *why* the bergamot oil was making my shoulders go so pink was amusing), who is a perfect gentleman. Snuggled Jan lots and had a chat and I hope we're both feeling less bad about things now than we were.

Pleasant lie in this morning and now the plans for today are: fix bike, deliver leaflets for libdems, go out for a ride, if time hoover upstairs and/or mow lawn, cook dinner while rjk's off catching up with Jan in the afternoon, and then Jan and Sion are joining us for dinner.

[Update: bike fixed, leaflets delivered, 6.5 miles in 25 mins, hoovering done, dinner on. Bloody hell that's productive.]


*blink* Jan very surprised to be rung up and *told* she's got a new boyfriend. Supposed new boyfriend likewise. Rumours that this is why Richard has dumped Vicky are *very* exagerated, if not downright ludicrous. I'm not quite sure where they came from though, but they seem to be stressing *everyone* in the process.

Nice evening

In other news apart from some moments of stress I had a very pleasant evening. Food came out even better than expected (bacon and leeks was a good bit of inspiration to use up the leeks before they took over the veg tray in the fridge). Nice to have people round for dinner too, feel like we haven't done it in a while. Spent most of the rest of the evening listening to uk.misc compilation CDs and flicking through Exotique together. Investigated and apparently it's only about 30 quid on Amazon, Jan is very tempted. Tried to mail corn exchange box office to see if there are any tickets left for Placebo on April 1st but their mail is bouncing, grrr. Can see an early night coming on some time soon. No interesting mail and running out of netnews.
