I had been selling well on ebay and decided to redress the balance with a lunchtime buying splurge. I bought this and that. In this case, the "this" was "Bill Bailey" and the that was a "John Williams" soundtrack - just the ticket for getting work done. Return of the Jedi was the soundtrack to some of my best adventures in good solid coding.
The following day, my girlfriend, who had been staying with me revising for her exams, was to go back down south to get ready to take the exams. We had a nice meal at a local curry restaurant in order to bid her farewell. Actually, it was more an excuse to go out. That's one of the lessons about being in a relationship that I hope not to forget. One must make the most of each other's company. A meal here, a walk there, a not-sitting-in-front-of-the-TV-all-your-life hither... it all counts!
