Bounds Green station staircase

A long way up ... or down.

A memorial service and celebration of the life of Vic Frost, an old school friend of Dave's so Dave had the day off.

Very windy today - the remnants and tail-ends of various storms. We started the day with a halloumi fry-up late breakfast then I read a bit before we got ready. Somehow ended up running late even though we'd had loads of time - so got a bit anxious in the North Circular traffic.

We got to the car park in Barnet with only minutes to spare and no change - and I panicked a bit more when faced with the rather confusing pay station which in the end took my card.

We rushed to the church - this was totally rammed - we were only just in time and we managed to find seats at the side. An interesting modern Catholic church. Service was very moving - readings from friends and family and lots of people in blue - as he was a Millwall supporter.

Dave was feeling a bit lost - he'd seen a few people he knew but he hasn't met up with them for ages and for one moment, he suggested we just drive home but I convinced him to drive to the celebration at Muswell Hill Golf Club.

This was very busy with people by the time we arrived with a huge queue for the bar - so we went and got tea instead. I left Dave to mingle as he'd managed to find someone to talk to by then and I went and waited in the queue for the bar.

Rather bizarrely we bumped into Leigh who I know from HR at work and later in the evening after I'd left Dave bumped into someone he used to know in the TA.

After sorting Dave out with his Guinness, I left him to go home on the tube via Bounds Green. Cooked up a big sausage, chickpea and vegetable casserole for work lunches and did myself a supper of hot smoked salmon with potatoes and greens. Tried to make inroads into my photo backlog.

I remember these incredibly steep escalators when I visited London
