Busy days ahead ....

Mausi is off tomorrow to a conference in San Fransisco, lucky her, the Monk never gets across the Missisippi on the infrequent occassions that he does get to the US and has long wanted to see at least a fragment of the West Coast. As for the Monk, well, everyone seems to want his services but most take their time paying for them so its a bit of a juggle at present to say the least.

Next week promises to be pretty demanding with a trip to London and two meetings on Monday, a trip to Tenby in Wales for Tuesday and then a meeting in the Cotswolds on Wednesday and probably another day or so between that and Friday at the same venue in preparation for two solid weeks there in February. In these uncertain times every minute of paid work is to be grabbed with both hands - I just hope that the payers will do the honourable and pay promptly!

Funny how everything seems to pile in at once, like Road Tax, MOT, Service for the motor and insurance renewals household insurance and so on all seem to arrive at the same time - fortunately I spolit and spread most of these through the year, but the car's service can't be, so that is a big lump to find reasonably quickly.

Anyhow, I've just got back from Leicestershire - another job with a long delay to paying - and now have to catch up with all the emails and the new questions arising from this visit ....

Ce la vie!

San Francisco near me, tell Mausi to eat @ The Colonial. It's a really good French/Vietnamese fusion restaurant. For good Hamburgers any IN and Out burger, they use real meat and fresh potatoes for their frys. Any Spaghetti Factory is also a good mix of tastes. Both The Colonial and Spaghetti Factory are near Union Square.

I shall pass that on - thanks, wish I could have gone there too, it looks like a good conference and a nice place to have it!

Thanks, Skipjack, I'll certainly give it a try if I get the chance. The conference will start tomorrow and the shedule is rather tight - but there, you'll never know.
