Committee Band

The Committee Band disbanded a few years ago but have got back together again for the Christmas knees up ceilidh - a great evening with lots of the old tunes and dances.

Managed to get in at the respectably early hour of 8.45 having not stayed out too late at yesterday's work do. Others (Jess) were less early and a little the worse for wear.

Quieter day than some others and managed to clear a bit of inbox though a bit anxious about some publishing work needed for Monday - looks like will be a last-minute job as usual.

Left at 4.30 to go down to the gym for a session then headed off to Camden Town to meet Sophie at Cote Brasserie. Nice meal of garlicky prawns and goujons and fries with minty peas (posh fish and chips basically) along with a kir royal.

Walked up to the knees up ceilidh where we met loads of people - Sian and Teressa and co, then L and P arrived a bit later (no kids) and also Simon and Catherine. Loads of people had come out of the woodwork to catch the Committee Band again.

Music was great, dances were great and I managed to dance quite actively without any ill effects which was great news. Started to get quite tired by the end though and a bit fractious as I couldn't get hold of Dave at his Christmas do.

I left to walk to the station and tried Dave again and it all got a bit silly and I started getting strange gibberish-like texts from him. Sent him a text to say leave me a voicemail.

At Blackhorse Road tried again but got another text saying 'I'll call you back' - which he swears he didn't send. Neither did he send all the gibberish texts or the audio files that came my way. He wasn't drunk - he was driving so all a bit odd.

He finally got home, having given colleagues lifts home, about 1.30.
