Ironman kicked off Friday night, and I have to say it’s a darn good blockbuster with Robert Downey Jnr. on twinklingly good form as the rock’n’roll engineer and hero of the story. Jeff Bridges was pretty good too although we are convinced he had platform boots on or something because he suddenly seemed very tall. Gwyneth Paltrow is in it too but as the token tight-skirt wearing personal assistant she had little do (but what she did do, she did well).

Saturday was an odd day. I felt a little light-headed for most of it, still not sure why although I’m wondering if it was upping my blood pressure pills (ACE inhibitors, now on 7.5mg a day… will be 10mg next week). Spent most of day pottering really, finally finishing the kitchen floor and a few other little jobs.

And yesterday was BBQ and footie day. Prepared the food in the morning, watched Manchester United win the title, Fulham stay up (somehow!) and ultimately won 2 of the 2 fantasy football leagues I’m in! Then off out to cook enough food to feed about 20 people, despite the fact it was just us, my parents and my sister. Still it did mean we got to have some rather delicious Hungarian wine. Yum yum yum.

Aside from that, not much else going on. Well there is a LOT going on but it’s all work focussed at the moment, and that is a very good thing.
