Listen in, listen Ian!
I barely stood still for any length of time this weekend, but it was good.|
I went for food and drink after work on Friday, which is always a good way
to start a weekend.
On Saturday I went up to Nottingham via Watford, seeing loads of people I
haven't seen for ages and spotting what's changed in Nottingham since I was
last there about 2 years ago - the market square has been completely
redone, with modern fountains for drunk people to have water fights in and
the branch of WH Smiths near the Broadmarsh centre isn't WH Smiths any
more. Oh, and Forbidden Planet's moved to Friar Lane. Apart from that not
much is different. All the various ye Oldest Inns in England are still
present and correct, and I went in them all. Nottingham seems to have
become hen and stag night central in the last couple of years as well.
The football at the weekend was of course very good as well. As an
extension of the new tradition of holding a minute's applause in memory of
people, all matches next weekend will be preceeded by a minute's laughter
for Leeds United.
In keeping with the theme of the weekend being good, my train home
yesterday got to London 20 minutes early, and then last night I watched
Howl's Moving Castle on DVD, which was excellent.
