And it makes me feel so fine / I can't control my brain (hip hip)

This is only supposed to be half a week for me. I've got a half-day tomorrow, and then on Thursday C. and I are off up to Northumberland for a long weekend away. For those wondering what could possibly be up there that would interest someone, here's a list:

  1. Hadrian's Wall
  2. The Northumberland National Park
  3. Kielder Water
  4. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne
  5. Some of the best seafood in the UK
  6. We'll take the bikes and try and get out and do some healthy stuff
  7. I'm staying in a pub (just look at that sample menu)
  8. It's not work

I could probably go on. The last bit is the most important by miles. The weather may well be shite, but the pub has an open fire... and I'll have a chance to catch up on my reading.

As I was saying, this is supposed to be a short week for me, but as is always the way with these things, all this has meant is that my whole week has been shoved into 2 days. I left work today at nearly 8pm, got home and booted up my laptop to finish off a document (making merchandising information available on a RF handheld device, if you're curious. No? Very wise.). Still - it wasn't all bad, as C. made a lovely stirfry, and I was able to catch the first episode of the new series of Little Britain (Lou and Andy are my favourites) and then some dreadful rubbish starring Kris Marshall as the character he always plays, and then onto Sky One for Deadwood - which is still very good.

I'm knackered and the mini-break can't come soon enough.

Toodle pip.
