Yesterday was a truly shit day at work. My January no drinking proposal ended prematurely on Tuesday night at a client dinner and it was properly terminated after I got home last night!
It has been a busy week with a lot of clients coming through the office, key officers of Bermuda domiciled companies are (mostly) not allowed to travel to mainland America on 'business' and therefore clients have to come here to meet them, nothing to do with the golfing at all but the tax laws instead. We have two more weeks of visitors and then I am off on the road for a couple of weeks myself, more on that in time.
I have another early start today with another busy day scheduled but then have hopes of a quiet weekend although we do have some friends coming to dinner tomorrow night, and they're never dull. Another tennis lesson on Sunday afternoon completes the weekend. My tennis is starting to come together, but similarly with my golf the best thing to do now is play some matches.
The 'winter' is here according to the locals, with a fair amount of rain this week and the temperatures dropping to, ooh the mid 60's. I have to laugh at the way they wrap up in their ski jackets and Uggs. The minute I complain about the "freezing weather"
is when I'll realise it's time to move on. London and Chicago are experiencing proper winters. 10 miles to the west of downtown Chicago it was last night minus 41 degrees below zero
with the wind chill. Now, that is winter!
