Overcast this morning…

…as I made my way down the hill…

At lunchtime, transferring a large sum of money to Creeker Craig re his outlay for Pet Shop Boys tickets for next February…

For someone who doesn’t enjoy live gigs that much, I seem to spend quite a lot of cash on them…

Better skies on the way home…

…and an enjoyable early evening in the newly tidied back room, post a “Big Bang Theory” repeat and some tasty salmon, potato and broccoli from the Exec Producer…

String quartets were enjoyed…

…pre and post “University Challenge”, where the Crispycat team was “on fire” gaining over 150 points…

To be fair, we were claiming five points for answering bonus questions correctly where the “starter for ten” had somehow eluded our combined general knowledge…

More string quartets…

…were followed by some tasty jazz…

...before retiring downstairs for a couple of documentaries on BBC4 – “The Real White Queen and Her Rivals” and “The Joy of Data”…

Bed at midnight…

Highlight of the Day : String quartets…
