Stuff Report – 25 April 2012

Another fun-packed day of setting up today. Got the office printer/copier/scanner delivered, installed and working.  :bouncy: Did some more setting up of bits and pieces on the laptops.  :bouncy: Set up the BlackBerry thingies.  :bouncy: And indeed generally got things done.

After that, I came back to the hotel for a bit. It wasn’t an evening for a wander – dull, grey, and with a hint that the quite impressive rain that fell this morning might return. So, I had a short walk to a different branch of Pizza Express, where I had the dough balls again, followed by an Etna pizza (spicy ham, roquito peppers, etc) and possibly a dessert. A couple of glasses of wine may also have been involved.

This was a really busy city centre branch – at much the same time yesterday, the Harbourside one was almost empty, but here I actually had to wait for a table. Shocking!

I’ll now treat you to some more of yesterday’s pictures. Here’s a view of Brunel’s SS Great Britain. I’d love to give this a proper visit one day, but for now, here’s a picture from across the water:
