I made it today to the March meeting of the Mother Club of the The Arbitration Club. Fortunately they meet at Herbert Smith’s offices, at the back of Liverpool Street Station, so the distance from the train to the office is not too great. One of our vice president, John Rushton, kindly met me on […]

I went to London today to the Law Courts Branch Meeting of the Arbitration Club. One of our members, Keith Kirkwood, very kindly met me at Bishop’s Stortford Railway Station and taxied me from Liverpool Street station to the venue and back. It was very kind of him. I discovered something entirely new today. I […]

Went to London by train today to see my stockbroker, Jenks and after miserably plodding our way through the schedule of heavy losses (not his fault but a general reflection of the market) was compensated with an excellent lunch at the Pescatori in Dover Street. Good old Mark then insisted on taking me back to […]

Our last day. Fortunately the sun came out and I was able to have a final morning on the sun bed listening to exquisite music. I packed up and returned to my room around 1 p.m, for my fruit lunch and, with considerable help from Mick, completed my packing before spending a last hour au […]

This was our penultimate day and the first which was not wall-to-wall sunshine. There had been a terrific storm last night and there was vegetation debris everywhere. We had been so lucky last evening with the Loy Festival dinner which had been held outside and would have been completely ruined had there been a storm. […]

A good day. Lunch with one of my oldest friends, 92 year old Geoffrey Hanscomb, at my favourite fish restaurant in London, Skeekey’s. When I say oldest I mean the one I have known longest. GAH gave me my first holiday job, 60 years ago and we have been good friends ever since. I started […]

To East Dulwich for lunch with Chloe, Karl and the grandchildren.  Managed to walk the mile or so from London Bridge to Liverpool Street station without too much effort. England managed to scrape an unconvincing win in the seventh of the one-day series against Australia, mainly due to Swann’s 5  for  28 – one win […]

Arbitration Club lunches,  yesterday it was the Mother Club and today the Oil and Gas branch, both mercifully within walking distance of Liverpool Street Station. I was also able to pick up my visa from the Chinese Embassy before the Tuesday lunch. The third of the one day matches against Australia today, which  again, resulted […]

Last Tuesday we drove up to Shropshire to spend the night with my parents. We took them out supper and left early the following morning for Bwlch Uchaf where we stayed until returning to Nan and Richard on Friday and home on Saturday.
