If you want a treat, go for dinner at Lola's in Islington - Saturday was our second visit and again it was marvellous - spiced parsnip soup, blue cheese & walnut salad, rack of lamb with artichoke and garlic puree, moroccan chicken, honey roast figs......ok, I'll stop now.

So Arsenal's unbeaten record comes to an end at 49 games.
Well done lads, tremendous achievement, shame it had to be United but it was inevitable really :)

advice for sporting types

Don't try to execute a Cruyff turn without giving the appropriate warning to the associated parts of the body i.e. legs. You could end up with twisted perispinal muscles and have to hobble about like an old man. Like me. Ouch :(

fully committed

More theatre-going, this time to the Menier Chocolate Factory and "Fully Committed", the one-man-show set behind the scenes at one of New York's top restaurants. Brilliant performance from Mark Setlock; if you get the chance to see it, then, er, do :)
