Holiday countdown. This time I started a bit rarely. Only 11.5 days left after today, then two weeks in France.

During the hot weather I've taken to leaving my suit jacket at work. That leaves a problem as to where do I put my wallet, railcard and mobile?
Answer, in my tablet case. Or as my friend James calls it "my clutch". Which I guess it is.

Here's April in the beer garden at garlic and shots after going to see Wadjda at the Curzon in Soho.
The film was very good by the way. Weird country and weird beliefs though.
Afterwards we went for a Chinese in China Town.

Anyway, in a little over 6 months we'll be visiting again so I guess we can have a big catch up then.

But before that I met up with my mate James in Waterloo Station for a couple of beers, we've found out about Bite card.
Not sure what they get out of it but it gives 20% off stores at participating stations. Stores such as Upper Crust, Pumpkin and even Burger King. The bit that caught our eye however was you also get 20% off booze in the bars!
After that I met up with April for a quick drink before our meal at the Archduke (part of the Black and Blue chain).
Very pricey for what it was and my main was served cold, T-bone steak which had to be sent back. All this was just shy of £100 after £10 discount for the cold food. In comparison it wasn't too far removed from the price we paid to go to Thakerays the week before which is Michelin stared.
Anyway back to the Udderbelly. We arrived just in time for the show,
Matt Forde, I don't think it was him, but whoever replaced him was less good, basically just an angry lefty loon.
The next chap who I'd not heard of before was Paul Sinha and we were both impressed. Very funny man who apparently used to be a doctor.
The headline was Mark Thomas who was a late replacement for Josie Long. Mark Thomas is of course another angry man with definite left tendencies but the main difference with him and the Matt Forde imposter was that he was funny.
Anyway, a good night out. Not sure if I'd pay the extra money for the 'sirloin' seats again. It just meant we were near the front in the middle.
Is it because there are no flies? Therefore no food.
Is it because they usually come in from the garden? There's not much green space round here.

28 more days at work before I can have a break from work. Tock, tick. I cannot wait. I'm going slowly insane here. And to top it all off the guy I sit with and have the most fun with is off on holiday for the next three weeks.
Jeez. Not sure I can cope.

Am back home next weekend to play a few board and card games with three guys. Now to convince April too... Although this would be her first weekend free to herself in ages, I'm pretty sure she'll want to keep it that way.
