My second Facebook diary page (26.4.2012), before progressing to WordPress:
Began the day, as usual, with an hour or so learning French vocabulary. Lunch with my friend Norman in Harlsden. Walked the first part of the journey from Morden to Colliers Wood through Morden Hall (National Trust) Park and along Merton’s Wandle Trail. Pissing with rain, it being London in April. A woman in Sainsbury’s gave me her place in the checkout queue because I only had a bottle of wine. That was nice. In the Park I met a former rugby prop forward and we chatted for a while in the pouring rain. What the hell, we were drenched anyway.
On the tube I noticed a young woman with an oval face and huge round specs. Surprisingly I thought they suited her face perfectly, so I told her. She was chuffed.
Read more of Farenheit 451. Did an evening telephone supervision session.
