Midweek 3-point update →
1. I went to a funeral yesterday where I saw people I haven't seen since I moved from my old house 16 years ago. It was lovely to catch up with them, but I'm sorry it was a funeral that brought us together again. I'm not going to leave it another 16 years to see them again.
2. I'd forgotten that at a proper East End funeral the dress code is 'black nightclub wear', with the shortest skirts and highest heels for the women, and preferably an off-the shoulder top to show off the spray tan (plus make-up trowelled on) and sharp, sharp suits for the men. I felt decidedly shabby in my new black work suit and sensible shoes.
3. It's nice dating someone who lives nearby. On my working-from-home lunch hour today I met P for a cup of tea, and then we visited the kittens in the local pet shop. ALL the kittens went over to him, which can only be a good sign.
