It started out yesterday in London.

Today is the equinox, so right on time.

(speaking of special days, I apologise for not following through with my plan to enforce speaking like a pirate on Thursday)

I'll be taking 3 or 4 different gins. Jon's taking rum and whisky, along with several bottles of vermouth, triple sec etc. for cocktail making. There's also quite a lot wine in my car boot and we'll be stopping at the supermarket in Crewe to pick up some beer.

Plus there's always the lunchtime pub stops.

Years ago as an occasional peruser of a politics sub forum, I saw, from others posts, that a young gentleman was off on their holidays, on a boat.
Some wealthy friend will have offered the use of a super yacht off Cannes, sun, sea and jetskis included or maybe cruising along majestic Norwegian fjords, reclining on the deck sipping an akvavit, thought I.
Turns out it was getting pissed on a canal boat, ho hum.

We’re back!

Bar yesterday, the weather was OK. The downside of the week was my phone decided to die on me - so I spent the week without access to the outside world. And I now have to buy a new phone.

Good news was that I found out Sainsbury’s do their own label orange gin - and very good it is too!

I'm off to Esslingen, south of Stuttgart on Monday for a three day seminar on Polyurethane Resins. Rock & Roll!

Bought a waterproof fleece for our guinea boys run, someone seems to think it is hers.
