It’s Friday afternoon and its just gone 4 O’clock and I for one shall be bolting out of the office dead on 5.01. It’s been a really hectic week. Mrs Confab has taken delivery of a new wireless router and a laptop for me this morning and the vino is chillin’ in the fridge. I’m not even the slightest bit gloomy.
from Richmond to North London this afternoon in the heaviest rain I have ever experienced in the UK. Twice on the North Circular road the traffic was reduced to a crawl, simply because the rain was so heavy that wipers couldn't clear the windscreen fast enough. That was all to the accompaniment of vivid lightning and thunderclaps - it was as though the end of the world had come.
There was a monsoon in west London this morning. The guys building the deck in my garden were not happy. Half the Tube seems to be under water, too, which makes me glad I've been working at home today.
