Here I am, at 8.27pm, already in my pyjamas sitting on my bed in my room in the RORC Clubhouse. It's been a long day (by my standards) so I've left the boss and my other colleague and retreated for Bed and Book. I've always been a lightweight when it comes to staying up late, and today I will savour a couple of hours of Me Time before sleep.
It would be super quiet, were it not in London. Despite being in a dead end street there is traffic, bin men, general rattling and banging and engines running; but it's far too warm to close the window. For one night I will soak up the sounds of the city and tomorrow I will return to my country noises.... such as birds, and boy-racers tearing up the street at midnight in their souped up Subarus.
