Here is my Facebook post from 27th April 2012, before I knew anything about blogging:
The rain having cleared, I had a very pleasant early evening walk to Wimbledon where I boarded a District Line tube train to Edgware Road for a meal with my friend Jessie at my most favourite restaurant. I have been a regular at The Akash in Edgware Road for 30 years now, visiting there sometimes once or twice a week. Now we don’t live or work in Central London any more I don’t go there very often, but still I never have to order a meal. They know what I want. The wall is decorated (if that’s the right word) with a framed photograph of Sam, still in his boat having just rowed the Atlantic. Majid, the manager, was as excited as the rest of us about the row.
Finished Farenheit 451. A great book which has justifiably stood the test of time – more philosophy than Sci Fi. Began Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which looks to be a worthy follow up.
