Listen in, listen Ian!
I started the weekend by falling asleep on the bus home from work. That's|
not so bad, because I stay on the bus until the end of the route, but it
would have been nice if someone had given me a nudge rather than all
sneaking off and leaving me to be woken up five minutes later by the
booming laugh of one of the drivers who'd come onto the bus to have a
conversation with our driver, and having to go down the stairs to be let
off the bus. I stayed in on Friday night, which I don't usually mind, as
I'm often too tired to do anything on Friday night but I found my self
bored and feeling a bit sorry for myself at about 10. Silly.
I went tubewalking in the Chess Valley on
Saturday afternoon. It was nice enough, but the countryside around London
really isn't hilly enough for exciting walking is it, so I think I prefer
the Urban tube walks. While I was out I got a text from flounderingfool asking if I was free that night. I was, so we met
up and went to eat at the Victoria Stakes which was good,
I had a quail to start - nice, but a bit fiddly with lots of little bones -
and a great big fish stew which was lovely.
Yesterday, I slept for ages, then woke up and slobbed round the house for a
while. My Setanta Sports viewing card finally arrived on Saturday, so I
watched a bit of Gretna v Hearts, then realised that even if I had paid for
it, it wasn't very good so I watched the Milan game on channel 5 instead.
Then I went to watch ice hockey at Ally Pally, where I've just discovered
the Haringey Greyhounds
play. It was excellent - it was only a fiver to get in, and it was a great
game. Although Haringey were well on top, there was no score in the first
period mostly due to the Romford goalie who was excellent throughout.
Haringey finally scored a couple in the second period, which finished with
them leading 2-1. Romford equalised in the third period, before Haringey
scored the winner with 1:05 remaining to send the
packed crowd into
rapture. I'll definitely go there again. I think the view over London at
night when waiting for the bus home is probably the best view from any bus
stop in London as well.
