31.03.2008 – Monday 31 March – In Under 5 Seconds…
- • It was very cold last night, and I got to bed very late. Sleeping in would have been great, but I got woken first by an SMS, then by a phone call, then picking Grace up from the train station, then dropping Grace back at the train station, then by a courier knocking on the door. Sleep just wasn’t working, so I gave up.
- • I drove Stella to the doctor, and bought a kebab for lunch from the Ville. So far, so good. I then went to drive home, only to find that traffic was backed up all the way to the roundabout at uni. Unfortunately this didn’t happen until I was nearly at the end of Sir Fred Schonell Drive. Fortunately, I managed to skip across the wrong side of the road into a driveway, turn around, and escape. A few slightly bent road rules and ignored “no right turn” signs later, and I managed to weave my way down side roads back home, where the garage door promptly broke. Then, in the process of fixing it, I stood on a full tube of superglue, which applied itself in the correct quantity to one side of the surface of my foot, ready to be permanently bonded in only 5 seconds. I’m afraid to say, that’s the end of the interesting story—I then washed some dishes, washed some clothes, and drank some fruit juice.
- • Drove out to Bronwen’s and chatted for a while.
