We interrupt our Hannibal re-watch for a couple of announcements.
Flat Richie Surprise Visit
In case you were wondering why we hadn’t heard from Flat Richie for a while: He arrived here in my house for a short stop over today. No reason to worry. The package didn’t need refilling, and the chain isn’t broken or anything, and neither is Flat Richie. He’s fine and still in working order. He just stopped here for logistics reasons and will now be sent on from Ireland to his next destination. Since it was an unscheduled stop, I did not take anything from the box. I didn’t even read the log. I’m keeping myself unspoilt until the package eventually returns to me later this year. I just had a quick check whether everything was ok in the box.
However, I took the opportunity to have a quick tête-a-tête with Guy.
And while our Richie is flat, another Richie is mountainous. Alright, the segue is not really that smooth, but well…
Top of the world? I hope he’s not in Nepal!!!! 🥶
But otherwise nice to see him on a little holiday, doing something he enjoys doing. I also hope he’s there with a group of nice people, having a proper holiday.
In other news…
It is now 50 days since I gave up smoking. My quit support informs me that I have now NOT smoked 1,000 rollies. And I have saved €100. Tbh, the number of cigarettes is impressive. The amount of money saved – not so much. The support e-mail also fails to mention that I have instead gained 18lbs (8 kg). Flat Richie, meanwhile, still weighs less than 2kg and will go into the post as soon as I have finished this post.
Back tomorrow with the round-up. Re-watch returning (probably) on Sunday.
