[Friday 31st October 2014]
Spent the daytime trying to finish things off at work, and also made a visit to the bank to make another transfer for the flat purchase. Frustratingly we still hadn't quite got to the point of exchanging contracts yet, but the proposed completion date was the 14th - when we'd still be in Japan - so I needed to get all the finances in place before I went away, because internet banking turns out to be pretty much useless when large sums are involved.

Andrew at work had had a ridiculous idea that the middle of the big dystopian roundabout in Wandsworth would be a good place for a "pop-up bar", and somehow that had morphed into a Halloween-ish activity. So that's where we went after work - Wandsworth - and had a Negroni (premixed at the office, and transported in a thermos flask) in the middle of a roundabout.

There were about six of us in the end, probably about the right number. After our al fresco cocktail in the middle of the roundabout, we headed back over the river to the Sloaney Pony for a beer, and from there to an Italian restaurant for some pizza. Yes, my third this week.

Hmm, the sculpture reminds me of a reflector telescope. Here I'm tempted to quote Wilde with his gutters and stars thing... Hopefully it was warmer in London than here!
