Boxing day shoot at Peter Sheriffs, followed by stew and curry at the Plough and Anchor. I was there for rather too long, and was not much appreciated when I arrived home.
Our usual Christmas eve cheese fondue, but without Selina, but with Winney.
Christmas we had both Selina and Graham over, lateish meal at 4.00. Our last turkey from the farmer because he is selling up.
The company has a us stay for one night at the Radisson Edwardian hotel next to Heathrow airport for the Cedar Professional Services gathering. There were many presentations about implementations of various software, and enhancements to other software packages, but nothing about e2.
Reasonable meal, followed by ten pin bowling in a near by alley.
Short two-day trip to Edinburgh to do some training. Caught the early flight up to Edinburgh from Luton, good trip with Easyjet, arrived on time.
Had lunch with Ed Aldridge at the Star Bar, a massive plate of chilli and nachos. In the evening a few pints of Stella at the Burke and Hare, before wending my way back to the Apex in Grassmarket. Notice they now have wireless lan and DVD players in all their rooms.
Next day gave my training course, seemed to go OK. Took less time then I anticipated. Back on a late Easyjet flight, which again arrived on time.
Visited Waddesdon Manor to see the rooms dressed for Christmas. There was a small competition where you had to write down the rooms in which you found the items from the Christmas song about Swans, turtle doves and gold rings.
Needless to say we missed one object so failed to get entry for the draw.
There was also a Christmas food fare taking place in the old dairy, where there was some very nice items to be purchased.
Not sure what was going on, but around the fountain were parked several porsche cars. Maybe it was a day out for a porsche owners club?
