Today delivered the invitations around our road. I think most should have been delivered around the village now. Seems to be a reasonable response from most people, so hopefully it will sell well.
This morning drover over to Alan Spargo’s. He trains race horses. We bought a small share in a horse called Cressex Katie. If the conditions are firm to good she should be racing on Tueday.
Drove to Liverpool on Saturday. Went round Birmingham the wrong way, chose the M5 route and found the M42 was closed to a lane, and very slow. Left it and went through Longbridge and joined the M5. In Longbridge we drove by all the car plants. In Liverpool we had another drink in the pub on Penny Lane. Must sort them out, they are so slow in producing their baguettes.
On the way back stopped off at Ikea and had a look at all their stuff. Ended up buying a halogen lamp and a knife.
Journey back was pretty fast, even Birmingham was uneventful.
Out of the office this week on a course at IBM at Hursley, learning about Web Services. Great time to think and relax as I drive there and back.
The next meeting was held at the P&A. At this it was decided we would do just one day (Tuesday). There would be shooting in the morning, Tug of War over the brooke. A BBQ lunch with games of Aunt Sally and Welly Wanging, then evening at the P&A with dinner and Boules, or Darts if wet.
I have to produce a flyer which will be taken around to all the local residents. Must get that done in the next few days.
