Wednesday, 28th, September, 2011.
I had arranged with Ed to swap days off, so now I have his Wednesday and Thursday and he has my weekend so that he can go to see a rugby game.

Although as I have slowly grown up and in fact in the last year I have sensed a quieting of these two extremes, I am hoping that they are creeping towards each other for a more balanced approa
