Goodbye *

We said goodbye to a work colleague last night - a right lovely bloke who took his job and responsibilities very seriously indeed. He was in the post for three years and it wasn't until last night that I heard him talk about himself and one or two ambitions he has for the future. For him, it was never about the self, but always about those he was representing and those who were paying his wages. Just about everyone in the office will miss him - in fact, only the wankers won't!

Afterwards, JJ and I set off for home and it wasn't until we were two minutes from home that Reidski thought and said: "Err, do you know that the plan was to have some chicken and veg stir fry?" JJ answers: "Yes." I say: "Only trouble is that I forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer and defrost it!" But JJ is very clever and she spots something and points across the road and pipes up: "Isn't that a Chinese take-away over there?" So take-away was ordered and paid for and it was rather inexpensive. But, the only reason why it was so inexpensive was that they hadn't given us what we asked for, having missed off one of the main courses.

Lovely it was, nevertheless. And dessert was even better.

Of course one should defrost chicken in a microwave - but only chicken pieces.

And yes - a right lovely bloke indeed.

JJ - still not sure about that one. And he is, isn't he?

John - nah, it was Black Forest Gateaux!
