Week 174: Rocky

A week of party games, shouting at colleagues, cute visitors, future kittens, leaving drinks, many shandies, karaoke, and a couple of nice meals with friends.

  • This week was the first FT Boardroom (boardgame night) in a few years, it was so much fun. We mostly played large party games but that was what we were all in the mood for. Several rounds of very competitive Codenames were my highlight.

  • A cat curled up on a bed in the evening, laying across my feet

    On Wednesday a visitor came to stay for a week, Rocky was very nervous at first but I think he’s warmed to us and he’s quite sweet and cuddly. It’s nice having a cat around again and he’s very easy.

    In two weeks we’ll have two kittens and then all you’ll hear about for months is them.

  • On Friday it was Rhys’ leaving drinks. I thought I was being very smart sticking to shandy all night, except it turns out that every shandy has a half pint in it and those add up. I got quite drunk and then I stayed in bed for all of Saturday feeling like the room was spinning. I ranted about AI a lot and we made some friends on the bus home. Turns out The Sea Horse does Karaoke on a Friday night.

  • On Sunday we went for breakfast with Gallal and then a roast with Luke, both were delightful ❤️ probs didn’t need the bottle of Sauternes to finish but I do love a sweet wine.
