The trendy* couple live in a lovely flat that looks over the Clifton suspension bridge: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clifton_Suspension_Bridge
As you may have seen on the news, last night was the celebration of Brunel, the bridges' designer, so fireworks where being let off from the bridge in one of the best show of pyrotechnics I’ve seen in a long time.
The parking around Bristol is horrendous, and this event only added to the chaos, but I did manage to nip in to where someone had just left. RESULT!
Joke: "What do you do if you see a spaceman? Park in it man!" Ahhh…
Parking aside, a superb time was had, a good curry was eaten, several beers were drunk and the fireworks were great and the 'fireworks' were great!!!
I just need 56 hours sleep to recover.
[* They use the word “Pod” instead of iPod. Was it not short enough already? I.E. “Where’s my Pod? Oh, it’s over there on charge.” I thought they were talking about peas or something at first. Talking of which, their fridge reeeaaally mings! No honestly, it does. :-()]
P.S. The 'parachute jump' was great. Who knows; I may even get a taste for it?
Anyhow, there's an entry I can scrub off my 'things to do before I die' list!
Today, I'm most angry about: Buying a chocolate bar from the local Esso garage and dropping it in such a way, it shot across the counter and into the water cooler! This did, of course, cause amusement to the cashier. Doh!
