After a VERY long week, I’ve finally found 5 minutes to scribble down some thoughts.
But before I do, congrats once again to the Boks for their victory over the Aussies!
I was devastated last weekend when I had to go 3 days without internet due to problems with my broadband connection. I started getting withdrawl symptoms from not being able to check email, do my banking, update my fantasy rugby side, but most importantly, I could not read my favourite blogs! What a sad little world I live in…
When I finally sorted out my problem (it was actually my router that was acting up!), I went away for work for 2 days. I say work, but I must admit that we went to visit a brewery (Adnams for those in the know) on the east coast in a small village called Southwold. In two days, we managed a one hour meeting! The rest was all pleasure, and it was paid for by the brewery. This included a fresh fish lunch, a night in a 5 star hotel, a 3 course dinner, a full English breakfast the next day, a high-speed boat ride and ALL BOOZE!
Unfortunately I had to take it easy ‘cos I had to drive everyone home on the second day, but I still managed to drink until around 1am before hitting the sack.
On Thursday I went for a boat cruise down the river Thames from Westminster to Greenwich with my other half and her cousin. It was quite cool seeing the sites from a different perspective. It was a good day out with lunch in a waterside pub after which we went to see the Greenwich Mean Line and stepped over from East to West and back again!
After our river trip, we went to the Theatre Royal in the Haymarket to see A Few Good Men. It starred Rob Lowe (old brat pack boy who has finally grown up) and Reece (of Home and Away fame) but I wouldn’t say that it was the best show that I had ever seen. The show was good, as was the stage and the settings and props, but the acting was pretty average with Lowe even managing to mess up some of his lines!
All in all a good day out and a long week!
