Money for soldiers and my chips for free
Other than that, I’m afraid I have little else to report today. A day of drudgery in the office, beginning at 08.30, and ending at 17.45, punctuated only with entirely unnecessary gluttony which saw me eat not only my own lunch, but also a bag of crisps, half a chocolate bar, and devour three vegetable samosas and four chicken satay sticks from a lunchtime buffet.
That and the lack of jogging is no good at all…
I was cheered up on the way home though, when I heard about the government’s financial gift to the armed forces. Although I think it’s a little tokenistic, I don’t begrudge them a penny of it. If we must be in Iraq and Afghnistan (and that’s a debate for an evening when I’m not on the way out to see James Dean Bradfield…) then at least give our soldiers more than a pittance to put their lives on the line.
