  • Long train trip
  • Pizza
  • Red wine
  • Mum, Dad, Emily and John for company
  • Nice comfy bed (so long as not sharing it)
  • Finished most recent of the Rebus novels before sleep


  • Breakfast with mum and dad
  • Beer, burger and chips and white wine for very late lunch with Steph, Dave and Hilary
  • Played pool for a couple of hours, and weren't too completely awful at it
  • Back to Steph's for tea and wine and dressing up
  • A couple of bars in town, joined by Kathryn, Nat, Emily and John
  • Thomas (French) and Heidi (apparently part Spanish) join us for dinner at La Tasca
  • Slow service but great Tapas, and a couple of glasses of wine
  • Much giggling and bopping along to the music
  • One last bar before getting a taxi back to Mirfield with Em and John


  • Woke up, only 9:30, went back to bed
  • Woken up again c 12:30!
  • Nice cup of tea in the conservatory before lunch
  • Cooked meat, sun-dried tomatoes, pickled artichoke hearts, stuffed vine leaves and nice bread and butter
  • Roast beef, roast veg, brocolli and mashed potato, with gravy and horseradish source
  • Home-made sponge pudding and custard
  • Yet more red wine
  • Train journey home, slightly spoiled by turning into bus journey halfway through
  • Directed bus driver to find the station - you think they'd give them better instructions. Cambridge station is badly signed though.
  • Home for dinner in front of last night's CSI:NY and L&O:SVU
  • Catch up with geeking and early night


  • Ug
  • Ordinary day back at work
  • Yay! Snow!
  • Yuk! Snow!
  • Home very soggy - heating on, dry trousers, cuppa and crumpets. Much better.
  • God know what I'll do for the rest of the day :-)

  • You say goodbye?

    And I say hello! I've been having a bit of a friends-list tidy, with the intention of removing everyone who either no longer posts anything, or who…

  • Time for migration

    Livejournal's new Terms of Service (which I've had to agree to in order to read about them and post this) are not to my taste. I've been here a long…

  • Thoughts on abortion on International Women's Day

    Larissa Nolan writes in the Irish Times about being a non-religious pro-life supporter in the current climate, and how she finds the rhetoric of…
