Eleventh Night Party

Not much to report today. I’m reading an interesting book about how things are dated (the development of calendars, carbon-dating, that kind of thing) and Brett was mucking about on his Mac desktop getting ready to install a couple of extra hard disks.

This evening we were over in Bermondsey for Eleventh Night/ Martin K’s 60th Birthday Party. I love his flat; it’s not a big space but it has something of a view and is very tastefully, quite eclectically, furnished. He has a beautiful collection of blown-glass artwork and his walls are adorned with everything from LGMC Posters (YDFN!) to expensive-looking abstract art, to pictures from the Vatican Museum (I was quite pleased with myself for spotting it wasn’t Egyptian; turns out it was Antinous portrayed as Osiris.)

Good food and drink was on offer and a selection of the Chorus old faces (Jim W, Chris P, Michael M, Neil H, Joffrey D) were in attendance, along with various of Martin’s work colleagues and neighbours. Ended up mostly chatting with Stephen H & Trevor A and latterly Paul L. Both Martin and Paul were flitting about throughout the evening being hostly though, so didn’t get much of a chance to catch up with Martin. It started early and wasn’t a late night; we were home by 10:30.
