Equinox weekend - the last weekend of the summer? Certainly autumnal weather. I got out and mowed the lawn for the last time in 2018. Well, I hope it’s the last time this year! Ann & I spent an hour or so in the garden tidying up the grass and flower beds. It looks quite nice. Photo should be here somewhere.
The rest of the day involved drinking cider, as usual, and watching football: Fulham v Chelsea and Arsenal v West Ham. We also started watching Black Mirror - never seen it before. Excellent drama - appropriately sick, disturbing and amusing in turn. The first episode involving a British Prime Minister blackmailed into fucking a pig on live TV was especially good. Apparently, it was released before the scurrilous rumours about David Cameron, who had actually put his cock in an (albeit dead) pig. Charlie Brooker (the writer) must have thought that was gold dust!
Another thing I haven’t mentioned, or only in passing, is Hannah’s 19th birthday party at the Slug and Lettuce. We (that is the family - Ann and I, Hannah and her fella, Andy, and Carrie, Ella and Faith) went to the George Street branch and had a slap-up meal. Very nice food. Less impressive service and atmosphere. Full of tarts and heroes, as Jordan would have said.
