After about 5 hours sleep I get up to get ready for my cab to heathrow at 07:45. The cab turns up promptly and I make it to heathrow with plenty of time to spare. So had breakfast at Plane Food which fine if not a little pricey. Spent some money in the Nokia store to get a few bits and bobs.

On the plane I ended up having two seats to myself which is always good. I should really remember to ask for vegan meals in future given my probable lactose intolerance. Although I suspect BA do that as an option anyway.

I watched most of 3 films. Thor was enjoyable. Fast Five was enjoyably ludicrous. Sucker punch was interesting with some great fight scenes although im not that upset I missed the ending due to us landing.

To get to my hotel I decided to take a bus to South Station. The bus was confused though at one point it converted to overhead electrics instead of a normal engine and then it went in its own tunnel like it wanted to be tube. There were no longer bus stops but stations.

Once I got to South Station I got confused and it was raining so I got a cab to my hostel.

My hostel is fine if not a little basic. There is free wifi though.

After attempting a nap I decieded to go on a flaneur and see where I ended up.

I ended up at Fenway Park where I queued for game day tickets for about 2 hours and got in.

So I saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees at Fenway Park from a pretty good seat although it did go to extra an inning so by the time I had walked back to my hostel I had been up for 24 hours. Thankfully caffiene now has an effect on me so the Dr Pepper and Coke I had drunk during the day kept me awake.

Day 8 of my sabbatical was mostly spent buying stuff to pack and then packing.

Once that was done I set up our network so things would work while I was away.

Turned up early for day 2 of the GBBF so I could stand in the ticket holders queue to make sure at least one of us got in early to grab a table. Which we successfully did and managed to hold on to it for the rest of the day.

The forth day of my sabbatical was the first day of the gbbf. As a season ticket holder (the next few days posts might get quite repetitive) I can get into the trade session on Tuesday afternoon to get a head start on every one else.

As is usual I started with a half of HSB and carried on from there.
In total I drank 20 halves and had a taste of the Fuller's Brewers Reserve No. 3 which wasn't really my thing.
The best beer I had was the Dunham Massey Chocolate Cherry Mild. I hope to keep untappd up to date with the beers I'm drinking.

I also ate 2 bags of pork scratchings but didnt find any hairy ones yet.

I resisted the urge to play any of the games to win stuff I don't need.

I had 9 texts from work.

So I started my 4 month sabbatical on Saturday after a heavy nights drinking with work on the friday night in the Tower Bridge Draft House.

On the Saturday we had a house warming/going away party which went fine although we now have far too many bread rolls in the freezer.We almost failed with the BBQ but in the end we managed to burn some meat. One of the youngest guests found the novelty or running round inside and out through the kitchen and living room to be most entertaining. [personal profile] kake's lego was got out and played with which is always good.

Sunday I spent shopping and finally found a useful piece of luggage for my trip its a Megadecker supposedly.I also bought some elastic so [personal profile] kake can fix my shorts so they stay up instead of fashionably showing my underwear. We also ate lots more meat and rolls.

On Monday morning I finally dealt with the bills for the old flat and the new house. Now all I need to do is a few change of addresses for my cards and stuff.

For lunch I ate the last of the leftover cooked food from the bbq. There is still plenty of uncooked stuff left in the freezer though.

Monday afternoon and evening [personal profile] kake and I did a pub crawl round Wallingtonand Carshalton.

Much tasty beer was drunk especially in the Hope it was a good warm up for the GBBF the rest of the week.

Whilst out I had one sms from work.
