I'm off then

The wife is almost fully recovered and we're off to Poland on Sunday avec children, for a couple of weeks of Eastern European hospitality. I had fun last night trying to collect them from the airport amongst all the security alerts and confusion. Their flight was due into Luton at midday and finally came in to Gatwick at 8 in the evening. Now I've got Paul Simon running through my head singing "It was 8 in the evening..." I know the actual word was "late" but it works, I bet it's buzzing its way through your head now too.

After that I'll be back for just under a week and then I'll be Colombo bound with my little brother, who needs a guiding figure like me to, well guide him really. The thought of a week of boys' stuff in Colombo really doesn't appeal to me a bit. I am a magnanimous type, always willing to make sacrifices and help out the needy.

If anyone's got any good suggestions for watching some live music week commencing 4th Sept please let me know. I've only got a week but I'd dearly love to meet up with a few of you Colombo Bloggers and have a drink or two if you're around. You'll probably spot me in one of the regular haunts and I'll usually have a pair of drumsticks hanging out of my arse or some other orifice.

That's all assuming I survive the joys of Poland and manage to sit on the good old Sri Lankan Airlines craft for 15 hours or so without my iPod, which will probably be stuck in my suitcase in the hold. It will be Sri Lankan Airlines FM smoothsounds all the way!

See you soon.

I'm back in London from the 27th , then leaving for CMB on 1st Sept, then back in London 10th Sept. These baggage rules are going to be a pain in the arse, but necessary I guess.

Hey S, the Atkins diet really wouldn't catch on here, the carbs are coming at me left, right and centre.

We are very close to each other, in a purely physical sense of course.

No the wife's Mother sold up and moved to the Isle of Man when her husband (wife's father) died a few years ago. She felt it was safer to live out her old age there, where her other daughter already lived, than here in London.

I'm not sure what i think of these Polish sausages, most of them have that "frankfurter" texture, not that good old British rough feel.
