Yesterday when we were out we bought Sherlock some cycling gloves...he just found these ones and REALLY wanted them. So, because we're soft, we gave in.
John had a bit of a tough night last night, didn't get home until nearly morning. But eventually we had to wake him up - so we did it as nicely as possible, with pancakes and fresh fruit and flowers and tea :) And an interrogation from Sherlock. Questions about work interspersed with questions about whether John was going to eat various items on his plate.
I've been listening to lots of music, trying to work out what might be nice for the wedding. And then getting caught up in the other millions of different decisions you can make if you wish. The most pressing being invitations, really. I...well, I've got a bit of an idea. Need to talk to John about it though.
Once everyone was awake, and we'd prepared for the day, we finally headed out to see Mycroft - late, because he had things to do.
It was grey, but then some blue sky appeared in time to walk the dogs. Then rapidly disappeared, as soon as I mentioned it, and torrential rain poured down. We legged it for cover!
This is the statue of Alan Turing in Manchester. It would have been his 101st birthday today.
Glad people think he should celebrate in style :)
A brilliant man. Betrayed by the country he did so much for. I...could say a lot more. But you can probably all imagine what it would be.
