AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

Went out on Sunday to the celebrate-new-(Chinese-)year meal and it was very yummy indeed. TONS of food between the ten of us and actually cheaper than I expected as I thought I'd read it as £25 a head and it was actually only £15 each. We gave them £20 as a tip. We had their "we'll serve you whatever we feel like preparing/cooking" meal, which included a whole duck, half a lamb, a roasted fish, more large prawns cooked in multiple ways than I've seen in ages, and lots of other very nomnomnom stuff indeed. Brief visit to a pub afterwards (though I didn't drink.)

Thankfully, I'd decided to drive there (nr Marble Arch) which meant I could collapse in the car rather than be bounced around on buses. Once home I basically dozed it off in bed ;-P

Downside though was that at some point on Sunday I caught a dose of the sniffles, which has put paid to my plans for going to the Science Museum 'Lates' tomorrow night. I'd also offered myself as a mentor to the Young Rewired State event at Olympia for then and Thursday, but they've now said they don't need me any more :''-(

Thursday night is OSHUG at the CCC, Friday is Pzazz at The Green Carnation, and the weekend will be at nou & bob's place in Croydon ;-P

Tomorrow very early I have men visiting who have promised to sort out my mains cold water supply so that it delivers more than 1 litre per minute. This is good (water!) and bad (8am!).
