Yesterday was a truly exhausting day; Hunter did, along with the Darkerside, 20 lengths in the refurbished London Fields Lido having not swam for over a year. Well worth a visit. So many fit young men splashing around, it was quite difficult to concentrate. Hunter's diet and general fitness regime starts tomorrow. Smaller portions of food, less drinking, swimming at least twice a week and a couple of visits to the gym should do the trick!
The day ended nicely having dined in a fabulous little Turkish restaurant on Broadway Market with the ever-lovely Mr. Croydonian.
Lunched in the Ferry Boat, Tottenham's finest pub, this afternoon with Cllr. Matthew Laban, our GLA candidate, Richard Reynolds, who has just left Labour to join us, Tom Mason, my esteemed Deputy Chairman and the incorrigible Eric Lattimore, a running mate from the '06 elections. By chance, Michael Lavender, the Deputy Leader of Enfield Council, was enjoying a spot of lunch. Thanks, Tom, for the pics. Had to have a nap this afternoon - it was too hot (even to blog!)
