I wish I could get more time off during the week, but I've got to be in court Monday morning (hence working today and yesterday), so I'll just try and get some time off in the week. The Science Museum is currently winning the poll. To be honest, I imagine they'll do a lot of the stuff on the list. Hopefully Mycroft and Sherlock will enjoy the Science Museum too, though. Whereas perhaps they wouldn't be so into some of the other touristy things.
It'll be nice to see my little sis again, too. She knew Bryan, and everything that went on there, so I can maybe talk to her about that. We were pretty close growing up - our chaotic house and family meant that the two of us got on well, most of the time. United in the face of everything going on around us. The family I'm dealing with at the moment - the little boy who was murdered - is uncomfortably close to my own experiences. Except somehow no one ever murdered anyone else in mine. Although it seemed to come pretty close, sometimes.
Speaking of which - well, any of you who read Danger's blog already know that the dissolution is progressing, slowly. I'm really hoping we can sort it all out and just get the courts to do the official bit. But I fear it's not going to be that easy. Once it's all over, though, it will be brilliant. I can't wait until I never have to think about him again. Which is a somewhat uncomfortable thought, sometimes, when I remember the early days - because we did love each other, once. Did think it would be forever. And that's a sort of terrifying thought. Even picking up the phone to talk to him now brings me out in a cold sweat.
On a far, far happier note, I've pretty much settled on the configuration I want for the new bike. And Triumph have an offer at the moment to get some accessories free. Bellypan and rad cowls - which I might not have bothered with, but if it's free, why not? And a flyscreen etc. which I would have got anyway.
There you go. I've gone for shifting the exhaust from the two big pipes under the seat to the neat little side pipe. (Will stop Danger's bum from cooking). For some reason the website removes the pillion pegs when you do this - but rest assured, they'll be there on mine. The bloke in the dealer's assured me they still fitted. Upgraded the suspension. Gone for the gel seat (I'm old, I like the comfort these days.) Added a grab bar for Danger and will get a nice tank bag for taking my laptop/clothes etc. into work when I need to, or a bit of extra luggage if we go away places, so Danger doesn't have to have everything in a rucksack.
