Blog2004 ≫ Big weekend then

Managed to fit quite a lot in the weekend, we completed on the flat so went round there and sort of wandered about in the vastness of it, there's no furniture in it yet. Saturday we went to Gate 28 friends and family, and sorted out the minor detail of getting Clare to agree to marry me. Much champagne consumed after that, and phone calls to family... Sunday we hired a rowing boat on the canal at Hythe and again did quite a lot of drinking first in the Watersedge opposite Kai's in Hythe, and then onto the Black Bull in Folkestone, which is not as good, but we were quite lubricated by then. On the way home got a great curry from the New Delhi, it's half price there on the first Sunday of every month, much recommended.

Yesterday we went on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway1 to Dungeness. Sat in one of the open carriages on the way there and ate our packed lunch, it was like a school trip. Got a bit chilly on the way there, so sat inside on the way back, and glad we did as it absolutely booted it down with rain.

Got home last night in time to catch the only two frames of the last session of the snooker, then watch that crappy film and the even more crappy mockumentary about Porridge, very disappointing. Couldn't sleep last night.

Today will be telling everyone about the engagement. Those who didn't read my drunken post from the early hours of Sunday anyway, oops.
