Well, well, well! I wasn’t going to write anything today, but guess what happened?! My dear friend Craig turned up very late afternoon today with a couple of his mates from work.
Well, nobody was more surprised than me, even though they did phone a little before to say they were in the area, and could they come over? They phoned from Belsize Park, from Karen’s in fact, and wanted to know if I was ‘okay’ at such short notice. They had been working on a certain project in Hampstead, and were extremely excited about it when they came over – indeed, that’s why they wanted to see me.
I can’t wait to tell the rest of you about it, but at this stage, I am afraid it must still be a secret, until the first of April. Then everything will be known – in its glorious entirety. Craig had not changed much since I first met him at my talk in May 2007. His mates I did not know (well, had never personally met them before), but they both seemed nice people. We all chatted for a couple of hours, and Craig confirmed they would all be coming to my next talk on the Highgate case next Halloween. I know it’s a long way off, but time really does seem to fly so quickly some times, and before you know it, I’ll be looking forward to yet another one!
They had only been gone some half hour, before my friend Gareth routinely turned up. He had not met any of them (although I believe he had met Craig at the talk), which is a slight pity. For Gareth may not be involved in the ‘technical side’ of the project, but he certainly knows all about it! And anyway, I brought him up to date.
Anyway, just a short post; and this will act as an excuse for me having to write anything tomorrow.
That will bring me ‘slap up to date’ for Sunday. Which is funny really, because I know how much a few people really cannot stand me touching on religion. So until Sunday everyone,
