Busy, busy, busy
Today marks the beginning of a busy month or so. I fly out of O'Hare tonight and arrive back in London tomorrow morning. The weekend I am on a stag, for which I am the best man. Either side of the stag I will cram in as much as possible as is normal on my forays back to London.
On Tuesday I will be at The Valley tracking down Inspector Sands
to collect my pint after I voted 601 times for him in The Best of Blogs of Awards
. I admit I did vote for Mistress Matisse's Journal
646 times though, sorry Inspector!
The day after I arrive back, my mate Chris and some others appear in Chicago for the Superbowl weekend. I personally don't get over-excited about such trivial things - although the half-time entertainment
is normally worth watching - but it will be great to have the boys here.
I'm expecting another visitor & some London workmates here later in the month plus I have a couple of out of town work trips planned before I fly back to London at the end of February for Stuart & Sam's wedding.
I then have to be back in Chicago for the 4th March because that is when I close on my loft, so somehow that will all be going on around me during the next 5 weeks but it does seem a mightily less painful & cheaper exercise to buy a place here than it is back in the UK.
Right, I need to go and find my passport.
