Saturday am

My body insisted that 6am was the right time to get up this morning. So I saw day break in a hotel on the Euston Road.

The other people in the restaurant were either Chunnel workers, perpetually single men of advanced years, or sturdy female German tourists. And me. Sat in a corner, reading Vanity Fair.

I realised, with a little sigh that I'd got the weekend the wrong way round. At 6am on a Saturday morning, I'm supposed to be in Fire, my arms, eyes and legs akimbo.

It's now 10am, and I've done nearly everything I'd aim to do in a normal weekend. What the hell do I do now?

god. that's a good point. but i'm curiously "off" the sex this week. I blame the dental anaesthetic - I think Lee's slipped some Bromide in it.

Have spent 5 hours building a fuck off Lego Castle. I swear, this time, Lego dragon stands no chance.

Talking of building big in Lego - this bloke built a full size working harpsichord.

Damn if only I'd seen this sooner you could have come round here and finished my ironing!

Oh, there was lots. There was the Brunswick-Bloomsbury Festival (12 foot countesses and accordionists on penny farthings), there was trying to avoid the rugby, there were walks in the sunshine, there was a French Film. It was all a bit wistful.

Oh, and soooo much lego. Seriously.

Do come round and build a Lego stately home. But you've got to be careful about parking.
