A full weekend...

After a relatively quiet few weeks on the social front, it was nice to get out and catch up with everyone again this weekend.

It all started Friday night with Debbie's 50th birthday party in the Tap. A good crowd in, the beer was on fine form, the buffet was delicious and we had a live singer entertaining us all and providing the excuse for a rare trip onto the dance floor.

Last night we were back to the Tap again for a surprise party for Nick's 40th birthday. Another excellent night of beer, food and chatter; the "surprise" element having gone to plan which was no doubt a great relief for his fiance Claire. For my part, I couldn't wait to see his expression when he opened his present. A life long Arsenal fan, I was quite confident he'd be pleased with a framed photo of Arsene Wenger and Tony Adams, especially as it was signed by the latter.

Today has been much quieter of course, but the highlight has to be the film I watched this morning. You'll recall that a short while back, Pete and I took his car out for a spin for a few thousand miles across the USA? Well he's done an excellent job of capturing a fornight's worth of holiday into just over 30 minutes of footage on DVD, fully titled throughout and accompanied by Steph's great selection of appropriate backing music.

The only problem with a busy weekend of course is that it always seems to be over that much quicker...
