I took the 9.57 train to London today to meet-up at St Pancras International with Peter and Isabel from The Old Croydonians’ Association. We met upstairs by the famous clock and the statue – ‘The Lovers’.
For us to meet anywhere other than the school was a first for us, but the aim was to make our get-together as productive as possible by cutting down on our individual travel-time.
We all arrived around 11.10 and dropped into Carluccio’s on the top floor by the clock and statue and began our discussions. By 12.35, we’d covered everything that we planned to, and squeezed in a couple of coffees too!
We all agreed that this was the ‘way forward’ for meetings and after we said our good-byes, I was able to jump on the 1 o’clock with time to spare – brilliant!!!
A pleasant diversion on the way home – Dropped into Tom and Julie’s to help them set up their new HTC phones. We didn’t quite get as much done as we would have liked, (I couldn’t get the email app to send and receive), but Nick did manage to get the MS’s MarketPlace app installed as well as ActivSync – which was a great start!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
