Good morning, Wellington (and the rest of the world too)

After the crazy day yesterday, a quiet evening and a good night's sleep, but now we're onto it again. It's quite a bit lighter in the mornings, but no warmer. The forecast threatened frost, but we have escaped that for today, thankfully. Today is the last day of the month, which means the excitement starts for sure tomorrow.

The Gunners

A chap wearing a woolly Arsenal hat just got on the train. Althoughi haven't quite forgiven them for winning the FA Cup in 1970 2-1 after Toshack scored first in the first minute of extra time, he's still welcome. Welcome because almost every piece of football hear you see here promotes another team. And most of the people wearing it couldn't even point Manchester out on a map. That's the power of marketing, though they have succeeded in uniting everyone else against a common enemy.
