Here’s the blog for August, I seemed to spend a lot of time in London this month. I can’t say I particularly enjoy driving in London but I get by. It’s no different from driving in any other capital city around the world so it’s just a case of grin and bear it.
Whilst in London I was in Vauxhall, so on a couple of mornings you would have found me having a cappuccino opposite MI6 Headquarters on Embankment before starting work. Don’t want to name-drop, but I was also training in Whitehall as well.
Spent a very enjoyable weekend in Polperro with my CO and friends in mid-August. I am not really a “Fishy” person when it comes to food, so it was a bit of a personal challenge to have a fish dish in “Michele’s” on the Friday evening. So I found myself tucking into monkfish and found it to be surprisingly good. So top marks to Michele, mind you, I think that bottle of Shiraz helped as well (yes I know it should have been white, but those days are gone).
Whilst in Polperro and visiting a local hostelry I couldn’t help but notice the wiring in “The Three Pilchards” was, how can I put it – a little eclectic. I saw T&E surface clipped, in trunking and various light fittings manufactured from old brass oil lamps etc. All in all, it reminded me that there are still a lot of dodgy installations out there.
Also had an unusual engagement during August – had to go back to an organisation I worked for over twenty years ago to do some training. It was a good job I left on good terms! I was made very welcome and had a great time, I even had a round of applause at the end of the training.
Short and sweet this month folks.
My motto for the month is: Be nice to each other, you don’t know what shit people are going through.
Adios para mi.
