Sounds like a fun trip, you two.

It's our third wedding anniversary.

I started the day's celebrations by going for an MRI scan. I now know where the Aphex Twin finds his musical inspiration.

Congrats Nick.

As of today we've been in our current house 4 years. We need a bigger one unfortunately but at the moment that's unlikely.

I'm now in my final year of my degree and whilst I've left the best module, Mythology, until last, it is tinged with a little bit of sadness that this will be the last one unless I manage to source the funds for a Masters. To make up for it, I'm doing A-level Latin at the same time.

Went for a chat with a local school the other week and they have spaces for teacher training so maybe by the summer of 2019 I will be a Latin/Classics teacher.

There's always one day when you genuinely couldn't be arsed to work. You might say it everyday but just one day you actually mean it. Well today is that day. The problem is so does the rest of member on my team. Gonna be a long day.

Thank you!!

Yes, we had the long weekend in Munich to celebrate it, and we're going out for dinner this evening too, first to Altrincham Market House, and then to a nice little Belgian bar called Mort Subite.

We've got a short break in Athens coming up too, I'm working there for a bit next month, and CatnHat is coming along for a few days, which should be lovely.

It's the time of year when work travel goes a bit mad - I'm in the Gulf all next week, first Abu Dhabi and then Bahrain. Back for a few days, then off again to Greece and Cyprus.

The name might well be a reference to the strong beer and absinthe they serve. Lethal stuff.

The bar's actually in what used to be the Altrincham mortuary. It has a nice decadent ambience to it, like something out of la belle epoque. Lots of heavy red and black drapes and curtains.

A bit like the black lodge, with beer.

Home prices in the San Francisco Bay Area. And you wonder why I bought in Oregon. . .

I live in Alameda Co. and grew up in San Mateo Co.
