i've had a very busy few days. flew to amsterdam last wednesday until friday on business trip. the good thing about going to amsterdam is that you know the evenings will always be pretty good fun. the trip was a success overall but i was fairly tired when i got home on friday.

saturday was very hot and a group of us went to the races at newmarket for the afternoon. my recent luck didn't hold and the best i could muster was an each-way win at pretty poor odds. still it's the day out which is most fun.

the rest of the weekend was taken up with catching up on work missed while in holland and a couple of barbeques to make the most of what little summer we are getting.
