The annual charity bash at 9.00 a.m. in Balls Brothers wine bar in the City. I don't dare hint at the outrageous script but we raised £600 for charity from the 120 guests who also got a breakfast thrown in (and luckily not thrown at the cast). It just shows you CAN spend your life in wine bars even if You Don't Drink!
"0 mile walk today followed by a one kilometre swim - dinner will be very welcome after that lot. also decided to go and treat myself and my wife to a whole walking outfit this week, after all we have already jointly saved over £450 this month simply from no drinking and smoking!
A day when the papers publish a spurious report stating that a drink every day for middle aged people will make you live longer, it makes you wonder who sponsored such a rubbish study. And on an even more outrageous note the tube drivers union is advocating strike action because one of their member drivers was dismissed for being under the influence of alcohol. Perhaps the union would like to only have middle aged drivers who are given a glass or two of wine before each shift so they stand more chance of living until knocking off time. Madness!
