Now it's the 2nd May and today we should have been going to my friend Lib's 60th birthday celebration. Instead I have eaten a terrible combination of a piece of cake, 4 chocolate biscuits, a small packet of crisps, 3 cups of tea and a small coffee. This kind of diet is not my usual style and I've got a headache to prove it!
Lib and I met at University - in Reading in 1980 where we both lived on the same floor of a ten story box which was our Hall of residence. I chose this Hall because you could cook for yourself and weren't tied to the meals that you had to have at every other Hall. It was miles away from the Art department on London Road so I guess I used to cycle between 6 and 10 miles a day on my small wobbly bicycle. We had a TV room (or hut) outside and each Sunday evening off we'd go to watch Dallas and Not the Nine O'Clock News.
More of this story tomorrow as I need to collect Joe from work now. I hope you've enjoyed the sunshine today - what a treat.
