In the library, Shari and Jean were there. I was so ...
... had a home delivery from them since it was that good!!
On the 4th, we went back to work which was a little strange just for the day, thinking it was Monday, then remembering that it was the weekend again! The Chinese had to work the weekend to compensate for the new year days off, but our office doesn’t do that thankfully. I had a quiet night in with a film, whilst Andy met his best mate Al, who sadly moves onto Kazakhstan soon.
