Stargazing on Teide on Tenerife, only downside was being sat next to a couple of Citizens from the city of Naaaridge at dinner.
Get back to hotel room to find tablet had no charge.
Wake up this morning to find we've lost yet another must win game, dad to say it... But we're doomed and I can foresee two relegations in quick succession.
I think Evans will come to the the sales income in the summer as his most expensive mistake during his tenure.

Been past it many times, yesterday went there for the 1st time*.
*Tried to go before when it shut between owners
They accommodated a large group of us  at short notice, effectively gave us a private dinning room [with table football and dart board] and stuffed us with delicious food.
And that's before the ITFC shirts in presentation frames all over the place.
Tried a couple of other places on last few visits to Ipswich, neither of which I'd recommend.
|Why is it England teams that win a test series...|

never seem to be able to complete a whitewash?
I am not a close follower of Rugby League or Cricket which seem to be the main sports where test series occur but "we" seem to win the odd series then immediately fall to defeat after the series win. We never seem to be able to complete the whitewash, however, we seem to suffer them...
To clarify... we appear to have beaten the Kiwis in RL series but are getting hammered in the test at Elland Road today.

|Giving lifts to strangers...|
at 09:13 11 Nov 2018
I have in the past picked up the odd hitch hiker, none of whom have ever been anything other than grateful for a lift and I promise I haven't buried any of them.
Yesterday morning leaving for work @ 04:45 I had to walk past a chap on leaving my residence in the 'hood to get to my car. It is a habit of mine in such circumstances to wish the person a "good morning", which I guess opens up potential for conversation.
As I got to my car he called over to me to ask my destination, on hearing "Heathrow" he asks if I will pass thru Vauxhall and I confirm that I do... "Any chance of a lift?" To say no would have been a tad churlish... sure hop on board I say thinking it was someone on the way to work. Where he was standing gave a view to both ends of the street giving him the option of buses in different directions either of which are good for connections / transport hubs.
However, on entering the car it was clear he'd had a "good night" as he stank of booze, I still thought he was on way to work...
We got acquainted; exchanging names and flat numbers - we live in same block, may well have seen each other but never spoken before.
When sober drunk people really annoy me as their conversation is repetitive and they get arsey if you disagree with them, or in some cases don't show absolute support for their p.o.v., thus was the 15 minute journey... me thinking to myself oh why couldn't I have just not have extended a salutation.
All in all he was ok, he didn't murder me, but he has invited me for a drink... I look forward with trepidation.

Just wound it back and paused it.
Regular away traveller called Jamie (I think) proudly wearing Ipswich woolly hat.
