Happy New Year...

We've just returned from a few days in London, where we celebrated the new year with old friends. It was good to get away for a little break and I'm now looking forward to new projects starting tomorrow.
Nic and I drove up to north London to visit an old friend and have some lunch at his local pub. Jack meanwhile, went to the Science Museum with another of Nic's friends and her two kids. After a long lunch we drove down to Kensington to collect Jack for the journey home. On the way back, we drove past the end of a street where many years ago I had worked on a building site. Which reminded me of this little story. We used to travel down to Kensington from Manchester on a monday morning, then work through to thursday afternoon and travel back home. We would spend the three nights away in cheap lodgings in Earls Court and the evenings after work in the local pubs. I remember there used to be a lot of Australians about in those days, and in one of the bars across from Earls Court tube station the signing on the toilet doors read Bruce + Sheila.
