Tuesday started in Sunny Stockwell and ended up back in the bloody Estuary Wilds.
I admit to finding the forever back and forth a little draining.
Spreadsheets with Anna to explain our movements have become confused.
I find it hard enough planning how many pairs of underpants I need at both locations.
Live dangerously, Jase.
Which is kinda how Tuesday kick started with a challenging dip in Lake Brockwell.
COR, Wot a Pea Souper, etc.
It was a magical morning down at the lovely lido. I arrived before the first swimmers were allowed to splash around. The stillness of the water and the lingering fog was a picture postcard.
I didn’t bother to check the water temperature before diving in.
It’s going to be officially bloody cold, right?
I had six power lengths and then legged it to a hot shower.
The water trickled down my face and I felt the bristle of my stubble. I was clean shaved 45 minutes earlier. Cold water swimming brings out the best of bristle.
Joining me in the showers was Dave Hot Lips Woodhead.
I have showered many times with Mr Hot Lips, but only made the connection this morning.
It was a bit of an awe inspiring moment tbh. THAT trumpet solo pretty much defined my early teenage years.
The lovely lido is very good at pulling people together and making these connections.
I had little time to reminisce on over three decades of Bragg gigs. Worker’s Playtime was over – the 9am shift was calling back in the flat.
Big Client #1 has had a major social campaign over the past few days. It’s been well received and is really quite clever.
Two rather manic hours, and then I had to do a runner over to LS.
Anna and I were swapping roles and changing locations.
I hope she has packed her underpants.
I arrived at the other end of the line at luncheon. I made sure that I had a brief Quayside stroll to acclimatise to the different pace of life.
Baton down. The weather looks BEASTLY for the next few days 💨💦☔️ pic.twitter.com/mpnyQZsjDA

Back at base and I caught up with Mr Carpenter. He has been brilliant at converting an old boiler cupboard into a wardrobe.
Big Client #1 took up the rest of the afternoon and evening.
I did a run of all four Auteurs albums.
LOVE Luke Haines, innit.
