On Sunday I committed utterly horrifying calendar crime. Helen and Richard were expecting us for dinner and we didn't show up, because I thought it was next week. Simon says this has not happened in the ten years we've been together. Auuuggggh. I'm still a bit discombobulated. We'll go round next week, with more apologies!

Yesterday Ser Polley (on LJ? I forget usernames, I use this thing so infrequently) came round to visit, and gossip about life, work, weddings and Odyssey.

Today I played took part in a real-life freeform business continuity exercise at work. Ninety organisations participated. So... being able to absorb 30 pages of detailed brief is a useful skill after all. My boss thought the exercise was a special form of torture and couldn't wait for it to be over. I thought it was fun.

I'm disturbed that my utterly foolproof memory has also proved fallible. But only in the last year. Perhaps my head is finally becoming full. My hideous crime was that I forgot I was working one Saturday (we only have 1 vet on then) and at 9am I got phone call to say "What time are you going to be in?" to which I had to reply "Eek. I'm in London!"

Glad you enjoyed your "real life TM" game!

Are we still on for afternoon tea on saturday?

We are indeed. But I'd better check time and date! My diary says 5pm at the Cadogan Hotel?

Yep, that's what mine says too. Looking forward to seeing you. x
