The invitation is now sorted, and I should behaving dinner with Colin Firth on Tuesday; or at least being in the same room when A Month in the Country is screened, and possibly eating in the same room as him afterwards.

Another long journey, but one with no alcohol; before, after or during.

On the long part of the trip I sat with Brighton fans; the loudest being a birdwatcher and a show off from Margate. His mate was quieter. Then a red haired lass from Rotherham, called Susan, was induced to join in the conversation. I sold her a book, at discount, and ended up carrying her case on the Underground.
