Wednesday evening, after a busy day looking at 'exposure at default' and eating curry with a former Hastings colleague. But now it's the waiting before the prize giving. David is hanging around with friends, so I have moved out of the way to give him a chance. It's still early, as the others have gone off to the other award evening. Tomorrow, a speech first thing and a Christmas harbour cruise in the evening. A long day for someone who is already over-tired. But it is a beautiful evening.
