Three minutes past eight. I didn't deserve to catch this express, but as the stopper hasn't come in yet, it's probably just as well. As you may have guessed, the weather is very dreary, with rain now and the promise of a southerly later. HSBC have bought Losango, but still no word here. It's still 'wait and see'. The lateness of the train means a huge influx at Waterloo. Word association: in the supermarket yesterday, SOS was playins over the speakers. 28 years old and still a favourite of mine.
