Sunday Column (499)

A full working week it seems. Not quite, actually, only four days, but I was working in London and I was busy. I suppose I will get used to it again very quickly.

You just sit down and relax and if you are lucky and keep yourself entertained, you will be at your destination in no time. When packing I realised I haven’t got a suit that fits me, so next weekend or weekend after I need to go shopping to get
