So first and most importantly, happy birthday to SimonG! I sent him a “happy birthday” text this morning, to which he replied “You managed to get the right date this year!” – a reference to an unfortunate event two years ago when I sent the same text a week early.

Better than forgetting altogether anyway :-)

The second most important news of the day has been Bliar’s resignation announcement – neatly timed to bury any news about interest rate rises. We have a TV in reception permanently tuned to Sky News, and every time I walked past, there was the grinning idiot’s ugly mug in yet another photo opportunity. I guess we have that to look forward to until his actual departure date of June 17th.

Ah well – we’ve put up with him for ten years, I suppose another month won’t kill us.
