Rocky and other animals.

So. Collapse )

There will be photos when I have received them. They're on my mum's camera at the moment...

Paul and I spent Wednesday finishing off our 10-game Scrabble Grand Tournament (we are both ruthless and should stop playing before it gets the better of us...) and then headed into Birmingham to play lots of pool in Sports Cafe. After seven or eight games in there, it started to fill up with local business people having a break, so we headed next door to the Figure of
Eight for some lunch... then went straight back into Sports Cafe again. I whupped Paul's ass at air hockey. :D

Then we found ourselves in Brindley Place at The Locks, where we had a ridiculously overpriced bottle of wine, then went to the Yard of Ale to use their ItBox for a bit. Didn't win very much, but our extensive Scrabble knowledge did help with one random question...

Then it was a round trip back to Paul's via mine to collect stuff. And that was that.

I still have a ton of work to do, and have just discovered, upon opening the envelope drawer in my desk, that it's been moved around again. Never mind the fact that I now only have one drawer as it is, since my second one was designated - in my absence a while back - to be the general office envelope drawer. This is despite the fact that there are already plenty of envelopes in the stationery cupboard as it is. The CPAs have nine drawers between them, and Cynthia has three. I have one. Somehow, this is deemed to be fair.

Anyway, I moved everything back again to where it was (and made it all fit again, more to the point). I'm quite tempted to see if any of the keys in the stationery cupboard fit the lock...

Back to work, I suppose.

Bloody hell, it was hot today.  And, for some reason, I'd forgotten that my office has only two temperatures: too cold or too hot.  This does not bode well for the summer, especially since there's already been a couple of dopey wasps about this afternoon.  And is it just me, or are the bastards getting bigger?  (I forgot to mention the bee we saw in Derby Museum, flying around the contemporary gallery.  It must've been at least two inches long...)

Although, apparently, this sudden burst of heat the past two days means there'll be thunderstorms over the weekend, so yay for that.  But the nice weather has to hold out at least as long as we're at the Flapper tomorrow.  Well, that is, assuming we don't have to leave on account of Paul being chucked out again.  He's taking his passport this time, but there's always the possibility of the bar manager remembering him.

I'm knackered.  Early night for me tonight.
