Dolmio, November 2007

There's Stowmarket, there's Stowupland, there's Stowlangtoft. Near one of the latter is a strange barn of a place selling furniture. Headed here in a leisurely fashion with zero children in tow -- thanks to Nana & Grandad Onehouse -- and picked out a dresser / shelfy / cabinet item. Available to order in several weeks now, or take the showroom item now? There's a challenge: open the back, remove the seats and slide it in. Bit scary pootling back down the A14 with the boot open while pondering last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. November 2007 was spent:

  • welcoming back Adam & Joe to live radio on Saturday mornings on BBC6: it's what Listen Again was made for
  • paying an evening visit to Ikea for meatballs and miscellaneous items
  • trying to keep the November fireworks in line with health & safety
  • watching the troubles of Grand Central in their attempts to start a railway service between London and Sunderland
  • starting to love the downloaded In Rainbows by the mighty Radiohead
  • filling the hall with a big ol' glazed cabinet
  • coffee-supping in Costa then wandering in Waterstones without the kids
  • going far too fast through Douglas Coupland's Gum Thief

And that was November 2007.
