With apologies for the late opening of the bar, today has been something of a rush. I was merrily coming to the end of my run around 9:10 this morning when I suddenly wondered whether, in fact, I was supposed to be running my workshop in Ascot at 10am rather than 11. A glance at my phone confirmed that this was in fact the case, so let’s see: still 5 minutes from home, sweating a river, haven’t printed the handouts or bought any milk, and it usually takes at least half an hour to get there. And today is a race day.
As the clock beside the church hall struck 10, I walked through the door. So not the smooth and efficient service I usually deliver, but I think I got away with it. Then I was stuck in traffic all the way home. The main theme of my day has been “oh, bugger.” So that’s the theme of our cocktails today: how have you come unstuck this week?
