I had lots to worry about. Work, as ever, requires me to do stuff, and I had a meeting at 10am. Also, I had a gig tonight in Richmond, to be followed by a journey to Newcastle to be there for a plumber to inspect my boiler, some DIY and a musical I was going to see.
In short, there was no time to do all of this stuff, especially with a car that wasn't packed.
A few things changed the state of play of the day.
- The meeting turned out to be at 11, which gave me more time to prepare (I didn't quite get motivated for an hour, though)
- I managed to finish my day's appointments by lunchtime, and I got to go home for lunch and packing for the trip
- I found out that my gig was cancelled - joy of joys
I like chatting to folks while I'm making car journeys. I tried ringing my grandma up on the journey to Leeds. That worked quite well.
After Leeds based food, I drove up North and got to Newcastle for a healthy 2am. The house was deserted and I made myself at home in one of the spare rooms. If this house had proper tenants - rather than A proper tenant - I wouldn't be able to stay here... but I'd have money. At least this way I'm getting some use out of the place.
