Anatomy of a walk to work

It seems our garden includes a small tribute to Sean Lock.
Weekends are for recharging. Thankyou @matsudairamen #yuzu #shioramen #YUMzu #becauseimworthit
It's been AGES since I went to an in-person whisky tasting, but what a great way to dip back in – @thedusties put together a genuinely excellent Stauning Danish Whisky session last night, led by the lovely @stauningwhisky_hans and the legendary @ali.is.out.stauningLike Ali, my head was incredulously turned by the superb Maple Syrup cask Rye – I SHOULDN'T like it, BUT IT REALLY WORKS! YUM!Great whisky, great folk, great story. And to think it all happened because @martin_vesterby heard a documentary on his car radio! If he'd been listening to the shipping forecast, I'd have had to stay home!

Here is an update for all interested parties: the albatross is now correctly installed.It is seabird flavoured.
Birthday awesomeness part deux: delectable @kanada_ya_ldn ramen at home (via @thedishpatch). This is the gold standard in ramen, folks. Just breathtakingly good. Also, treated myself to opening a new pair of red Explorer socks from my stockpile. The iconic, indestructible sock that money can't buy (any more). @thisisathalie to thank for that (in about 2005).

Thanks everyone for all the lovely birthday wishes – will hopefully catch up with the rest of those over the next few days. To celebrate I was treated to an AMAZING meal (thankyou @freedoughballs) of Fish Tacos, Barbecoa Burritos, and Bundt! Nice wine, great company, and much contented smugness ensued.
