I had a very irritating day at work yesterday, mainly due to a meeting where one of the people was in a very bad mood and just tore everything that we had done to shreds. His comments weren’t actually justified and pulled him up on some of the things that he had said. Judging by the look on his face, I have made a bit of an enemy there. Anyway, by the time I got back to my office I was really hungry and a bit grumpy. I heard my Australian stalker shuffling over and on his lunch break he had been out to try and buy some cake. He sometimes buys lamingtons and splits one with me, but hadn’t been able to get any but instead he had bought a doughnut for me. I don’t think he buys cakes for anyone else, he just sometimes likes to appear with a cake for me. Yesterday it was perfect timing and I finished my lunch and then ate the doughnut with a nice cuppa and some vague normality was restored. Although it probably wasn’t great for the waistline.

Anyway, it’s a nice long bank holiday weekend ahead and G and I are going for a walk on Saturday afternoon and then going to see a radio recording and another one on Monday. I think we’re having a celebratory take away tonight due to G getting a new job.

Incidentally, if you’re a fan of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs then they’ve brought out a new version of the bar. If you look at the videos here then I’m not entirely sure why a chocolate bar of an animated poo would be something that people would want to eat, but that aside, I might have to give it a go some time soon. Of course, I do still have an Easter Egg left to eat so perhaps I should do that first. Looking on that site did remind me of my favourite chocolate bar though. Oh yes, indeed.

Anyway, have a good weekend all.

OOOOH where does he buy Lamington cakes from? - I got quite partial to them when I went to Australia a few years ago! Needless to say they go straight onto the hips but nevermind..........

I made a bit of an enemy at work last week. I guess some people dont like hearing honest talk.
I am glad you stood your ground.

Hope you have a good bank holiday.

spudgy - well, the bakers near where I work sells them very occasionally and they are really lovely and fresh but they hardly ever seem to have them now. However, a place where you can get them is the Australian Shop in Covent Garden (but they are prepacked).

kahless - this chap was in a very bad mood and is not one to make an enemy of at the best of times, so we'll see what he is like in the future. I said to my boss that this chap is a prime candidate for a heart attack.

I'm jealous you can go for a walk with G. Long distance stuff can be no fun sometimes.

titration - it was a lovely walk and a great way to see parts of the surrounds of London that I don't know.
