We've just been told to evacuate the Lloyd's building only to be told 30 seconds later not to. Damn! I could have gone home.

After going to the last 6 or 7 Great British Beer Festivals we decided to give this year's a miss. It's good fun but after about 4pm it just gets far too busy and it's all the way over in Olympia which is a real hassle to get too.
This year we decided to just do some beer tasting of our own and just did a pub crawl around Soho. I was home by 8 but we had good fun.
Where to next year?

It gets pretty hot at work in the summer so splashed out on a new usb desk fan.
Excellent. Until I turned out on. They're not much friction between the desk surface and the fan so it's started to move on its own.
Not to worry. I've celotaped it to the desk.

I've just finished 2 days of SQL training but back to the day job now. It wasn't the most fun as half of the course was typing out code from a book onto the screen and clicking go but it was nice to have a break from real work.
I'm sure there'll be lots to do once I get back in the office.

The Cat Empire. They sound as if they are my kind of band, but not really. They had a couple of songs that I know which were good but the rest were not really my thing. Plus I had to miss the second half of the football. Boo!

It's been a little over a week since we all went to Sonisphere and I think I'm still recovering. Excellent fun with great music, friends and beer. Lots of beer.
As a venue I couldn't fault it. 50k people rather than Reading's 100k plus made all the difference. I didn't need to queue for the toilet our for a beer once.
A friend who's wedding we went to a couple of weeks ago had a spare beer barrel and a keg of cider left ovet so dropped it round mine before we headed off to a beer festival at my rugby club.
Pretty cheap night as half of the bar men were other players so got loads of free beer on top of the free beer before.

Thursday at noon. I've been doing longer hours at work recently, the whole team has. We've got a deadline for a Lloyd's capital return and there's been loads of work to get done so 12 hour + days have become a bit of the norm.
I don't mind getting in early and staying in late when there's work to do but some of the team are there just to show face.
That bloody cat came in again this morning (4am), so I've blocked off the cat flap again. I'm pretty sure that's the one that's ruined the carpets. Fucker!
Microchip cat flap entry system will get ordered today.
