Lovely Weekend

I have had a lovely weekend. I spent Friday night in the green room at the People’s Theatre drinking lovely day with lovely people and my lovely wife. They’re a great crowd at the theatre and I think I may have made a few new friends.

On Saturday I realised the perhaps the lovely beer had been too lovely and I drank too much of it. So I spend Saturday largely in bed holding onto my head and then eating a very lovely large Domino’s Pizza. In the evening we watched the film: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The film was very good and deserved all the plaudits it had received.

On Sunday after a night of heavy rain the garden was cool and wet: perfect weather for gardening. I have largely neglected the garden during the period of PhD writing up. It was an absolute Delight working in the garden, reminding me how much I enjoy it. Ann made a lovely Bolognese and we then watched the last episode of the excellent docudrama about Norman Scott and Jeremy Thorpe: A Very English Scandal.

All in all a cracking weekend. Poor Amn got a bad cold..

Ttfn.

Update

Ann poorly Monday. Not much achieved. I had terrible back, neck and head pains.

Tuesday I had a CILT Railfreight Forum workshop which we hosted at the University. Very pleased with it, and great to see the group meeting outside of London. Scotland next, I believe! Enjoyable group, old friends and new faces. Head and neck pains very bad, resorted to codeine.

Wednesday, started to get back into groove but needed to pop to hospital, and then had Hedley’s round to look at guttering to consider replacing it all. Had a good chat with Bruce C re urban logistics.

Not much progress made.
