Angela for a meal in Peterborough

I drove up to Peterborough to meet up with Angela C. She's running a Workshop there tomorrow. She doesn't often get this far north :), so it was good to catch up. We went to Prezzo's in Cowgate. It was pretty quiet when we arrived but soon got busy. Food was OK rather then great.…

Cinema: ‘Wolverine’

I met with Jo today to catch the 6.15 performance of 'X Men Origins: Wolverine' at the local Odeon. Starring Hugh Jackman, it's a prequel to the previous X-Men films and tells of how the character - Logan - becomes Wolverine. <img src="http://www.stevepalmer.com/blog/uploaded_images/CinemaWolverine_DB2D/video30e0bf27c80f.jpg" style="border-style: none" galleryimg="no" onload="var downlevelDiv = document.getElementById('6b473fd1-113b-422c-aad6-d9856e7e9d8f'); downlevelDiv.innerHTML = "http://www.youtube.com/v/LPmbGzQaOCs&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b&hd=1&border=1&hl=en";" alt=""> The…

TV: ‘Ashes to Ashes’ – Series 2, Episode 2

Episode 2 tonight. Hope it's as good as the episode 1 last week. So, what was it like? Well, all-in-all, a disappointing lack-lustre episode in my view. Even though the acting was, as always, very good - especially Philip Glenister who IS Gene Hunt and Keeley Hawes in the lead roles, it just felt...well...boring! The…

Laptop woes/Kitchen ceiling

Julie brought Georgina's Dell (rather nice pink) laptop round. It's refusing to accept an installation of the latest free version of AVG. After spending a lot of time clearing out the registry, I tried to reinstall it. After a couple of false-starts, it installed without a problem. I've been running various tests on it for…

Ann’s Redundancy (3 weeks to go!)

There haven't been any significant developments at work except her HR representative scheduled a meeting with Ann (at last!) and then, the day before, Ann found out the same HR representative was on holiday!!! On a more positive note, Ann has been busy talking to a head-hunting firm and briefing her solicitor.

The London Marathon 2009

Our good friend Roy, is running in the Marathon this year and our plan was to get some really good pictures of him by placing ourselves at strategic points along the route. We got up early to ensure we were away by 8.15. It looked like it would be a fine day for the Marathon…

Meal with Mick and Jane

We met up with Mick and Jane for a meal at the Benefield Wheatsheaf in err... Upper Benefield. It was a nice location, perhaps a bit remote, but the interior and exterior looked good. The Bar was empty when we arrived and the bar-tender made us feel very welcome. Jane and Mick arrived slightly late…

Family get-together

We set off for Mum's quite early - 7.30am! - in order to get to hers for around 9.15 (our best journey for ages). She's got some problems with her bank account and we've promised to take her into Bromley to get it sorted out. The mission to the Nationwide appeared to be successful, and…

Kitchen Ceiling

Mick and Nathan popped round to sus-out the work needed to replaster the ceiling and replace the lights in the kitchen and utility room. Work starts next week. Thanks to Val and David for the inspiration!!
