“This must be Thursday,” said Arthur musing to himself, sinking low over his beer, “I never could get the hang of Thursdays.”

…and then just substitute “Monday” for “Thursday” 😉 The picture shows a) the remedy that I treated myself to in the train from Barcelona Sants to Madrid Atocha Tuesday night; b) the fact that this sort of gin and tonic is available in a train cafe en route really shows that there is some kind of gin revolution rolling over the world. Which has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the post.
Back to my Monday: Not that anything bad or anything happened – but the day was sort of a write-off. A day of travel – I write this in from Madrid in a vain attempt to catch up – which at the best of times makes the Monday posts a little bit of a challenge. But on top of that, a radiator at home that needed fixing, and both getting the new thermostat and having it changed was … irksome; some needed bank-online-doings proved slow for parts, impossible for others. I mean – which netbank changes its layout but sort of forgets adding a print facility for the listing of movements on the account? Yeah, right, mine does…
And suddenly I barely had time for lunch and needed to rush out of the door to just exactly miss the train so that I could turn around mid-hill just before the station and trundle back to take a taxi instead…
So the music, as indicated in the post title, is actually a Wednesday list – played on the motorway between Talavera and Madrid. Today, in lovely sunshiny weather and after a lunch with some people that I am happy and proud to call both colleagues and friends. Take that, bleeping Monday!
