The most exciting day ever.

Amy and I were ever so excited about today. Owen was coming into town and we were going to be able to spend quality time together. I mean, when does that happen, right? We were so excited that I got up at 6:30 a.m., walked the dog, made coffee, and woke Amy up. On top of everything, Arsenal were playing a match, and they're always exciting too. So at 7:15 we walked over to the Red Lion to watch the match and meet Owen.

Well, at halftime of the worst match I've ever seen, Owen texted saying he was feeling unwell and consequently wouldn't make it to the viewing. Or words to that effect. So not knowing that the second half would be as bad as the first, we stayed by ourselves for the whole thing. I finished my third beer, and then we went home and went back to sleep.

At around one, I woke up and took Martin to the dog run, and Amy took a bath. Below is a picture of the snowy dog run. Martin is, well, not quite in the frame, but the snow is. On the way home, Owen texted me for directions to McSorley's, I stopped to get hot chocolate, and now we're going to go to the movies with Stu and Claire. What an exciting day!

Your mother agrees - Exciting day, indeed!! Drinking too early, though. I hope the rest of the day goes well. Sometimes the best times happen in ways you never see coming. Stay warm.

Well don't I fell like a low life. In my defence I was very ill and riding the porcelain bus.

Well it was pretty silly of us to expect you across town at 7:30 a.m. the morning after the night before the first day of your bachelor party. There were no hard feelings, except when we found out you had crashed out by 9 p.m. at the steakhouse and hadn't even gotten arrested or anything.
