Checking my watch

(no subject)

Today I'm on a Tax course for the self employed. What seemed like a good idea when I booked it now is filling me with dread. I forgot about my form-phobia. Hopefully I'll learn something useful, but I'm pretty sure this won't stop me using my accountant.

In other news...
Went to an open stage in Richmond last night to see Guy. It's a rare thing to get me to walk across the bridge for a drink, I'd pretty much dismissed all Richmond pubs along with most Twickenham pubs as being Television Lounges. Walked in to a completely empty pub and got to see the last 5 mins of Eastenders. That's the most Eastenders I've seen in many years. Bloody TV in pubs, you can't even chat to the barmaid! Thankfully people soon started arriving along with Guy and we drifted upstairs for a rather good evening.

The anger I'd been feeling subsided and I walked back with a feeling something like stoic-melancholia, if that's not a contradiction.

The tax course paid off. Seems my NI is wrong... Really, really wrong. Came home and called them. I got to play telephone tag getting bounced back and forth between type 2 and type 3 NI departments, both departments claiming I needed to talk to the other. In the end I think they pushed the problem up stairs and I may hear more soon. Hmmm.... we'll see.
