I had to be home in order to meet a decorator to get a quote. Then, in a change to the advertised schedule, I headed off to meet a friend who was going to be meeting me at my house, but then ended up working too late to be able to come without basically saying hello and then leaving again.
I am not so quick to run out of steam on a night out and basically had to be thrown out, rather than leave of my own accord. Such is my "I find it hard to say goodbye" nature. Still, I think it was a good evening.
