Its been over a year since I last posted. A lot has happened in that time including becoming a pseudo grandfather and getting to pace up and down outside the maternity ward while evath
were busy becoming parents inside.
I was best man at my brother's wedding, having found this out when I was working out where to sit and my brother said "Oh yeah, I meant to ask you if you could be best man". Fortunately it was just a small registry office affair with family and a few friends so I didn't have to do anything apart from pass the rings over or something. I still made an impromptu speech anyway though which I thought was rubbish and token but my brother was quite moved by. :)
I went to turkey for the second part of the wedding - my brother's wife is turkish so we went for a celebration there and to meet the new in-laws. :)
But none of that is why I am posting now. I post now for a much more important purpose, one that probably caught your eye before I started posting the above.
Its my birthday coming up and for lack of better inspiration I am going to go for my favourite excuse for a night out. Cocktails at Raouls on the Saturday evening. So:
Where: Raoul's Cocktail Bar
When: 22nd January 2011
When exactly: I've booked some tables for 6:30 and estimated 15 people. We won't be able to keep the tables forever if we're not using them though so don't turn up too fashionably late unless you are happy to stand. :)
Dress code: No dress code but I intend to use an evening of cocktails as an excuse to put on my black tie (or tails) and a wasitcoat and pocket watch. I encourage others to use it as an excuse to dress up too. :)
Please don't make me be sitting on my own drinking cocktails. :)
