A keg of Lenton Lane Winter Ale arrives ahead of my birthday which is good start to the week. Oddly it is also L’s favourite
I cycle in to work which was good, I even got the shades
L manages to beat off competition from all the other
emergencies to get an emergency appointment with the dentist. Which turns out to be her
first ever virtual dental appointment. He assures her that she’s just got an
infection and that her teeth shouldn't rot or fall out.
MD takes a tumble. Possibly, but we're not sure, after colliding with the Lad. He seems generally ok but not quite 100%. Not quite himself. However he still seems up for a trip to dog
training in the evening. L and Daughter meanwhile are racking up the lunchtime Couch to 5Ks.
On Thursday I am out in Derby with my friend but I opt to go
over from home rather than from the office as I intend to be in the office on
Friday for yet another leaving do. The 5th one to go. There will be post-work
drinks in the Brunswick after they were persuaded to forgo the awful Harvester.
The Brunswick is funnily enough also where I spend part of Thursday evening.
Once I found a bus that is, which wasn’t easy. The first one was cancelled and the
second one was full but I got on the third one that came. Luckily my friend is
never early but he beat me there for the first time ever. I bet he was worried he’d
got the wrong day. I did, of course, text him but he only checks his texts once
While I’m in work on the Friday I reacquaint myself with the
gym which wasn’t straightforward because they’ve removed the online booking
system but didn’t tell anyone. As there was no booking available I naturally assumed
the gym was shut but as it’s so close to work I walked over anyway. They
explained that it's now just turn up as it was pre-Covid. Personally I liked the booking
system as it told you how busy it was going to be.
The gym was very quiet, I bet everyone else assumed it was shut.
On Saturday L Parkruns at Wollaton, which is something like
her 224th so far. MD does the last hundred metres with her.
Then in the afternoon Derby, who were relegated at QPR on Easter Monday, lost 3-1 at home to Bristol City.
