  • 07:28 Today is 25th anniversary of starting my first proper job: NCR in Birmingham, where I was from 1984 to 1990. Seems such a long time ago now. #
  • 08:07 On the railway platform. In the distance, the sirens are screaming more than is usual. Otherwise, same as ever. Sun, cold morning. You know. #
  • 08:35 Cannot simultaneously deal with a suitcase, a newspaper, a BlackBerry, a bag of chocolate goodies AND an Oyster card at the Baker St gates. #
  • 16:33 On the tube at Liverpool Street, on my way to Euston Square. Once again, struck by the massive size of the Gherkin. #
  • 16:54 I'm now at Euston, waiting for the call for the 17.10 to Chester and Holyhead. #
  • 17:06 Success! I'm on the 17.10 to Chester, in a largely unoccupied carriage which is of indeterminate class, so quite comfortable. #
  • 17:43 I didn't even know this train stopped at Milton Keynes Central, yet here we are already. Next stop will be Nuneaton, I think. #
  • 19:36 On the local train home from Chester. Viv came to meet me, so that was very good. #
  • 20:19 Back home. Quiet evening. So far. #
  • 21:52 Just lost a game of Scrabble to Viv. #

25 years

We were talking about 25 years last night, as Karen and John celebrate 25 years of marriage in May.
Have you remembered that you are going to remind me so that I don't miss your silver wedding anniversary?

Yes.

People at work asked me how I came to remember the date I started work. It's easy. You must always remember the day you start at a new place, because anything that happened before that date isn't your fault. Unfortunately, the opposite isn't true...
