I hope no-one minds, but I've invited Paddy to the beach, should he have time during his hectic PM schedule today. Can we round up some welcoming goodies for the bar? I've brought chocolate brownies and vanilla ice-cream - it's that sort of a day, I feel.

Tomorrow it's meet TD who's had about 5 months (it seems) of holiday from Uni and suddenly remembers that her drawing board/portolios/Twister etc are all still at home and she hasn't now got time to come all the way here so could I meet her halfway?

One minute you're settling into your favourite chair with a glass of Scottish liquid in your hand after a long week at work, the next you're rubbing the sleep from your eyes and cursing Mondays for being too early in the week. No fair!I'll grill some muffins and put the coffee pot on for elevenses.;o) [] Mon 29 Sep 2008 09:41:07 GMT+1 David_McNickle http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/09/the_beach_80.shtml?page=55#comment115 pmL 102, Where in Winchester?
