it was an excellent evening all round although i didn't get much sleep. i didn't drink too much but it does seem that champagne has curative properties as i feel a lot better today. i'll have to bear that in mind for the future.

everyone headed off to their beds at about midnight but as i was checking into the hotel i met some very happy actors who had just completed their first night in the barbican, it seemed churlish not to join them when they asked so i didn't end up getting to sleep until somewhat later.

i am very much on cruise control today as a result but i have loads of boring maintenance jobs to do so that is no bad thing.
