the cards night was excellent fun as ever. i came out just up but that isn't really the point. we played until about 03:30 this morning and then mark stayed as he lives in london. he has just left but neither of us got much sleep because at 07:00 some men started drilling on the road just outside my house. they are still going now and it isn't doing wonders for my rather sore head.

a day of relaxation methinks!
