Lunch with Parky...
I've just got back from a charity lunch with Michael Parkinson at the Royal Lancaster. It was a Marie Curie Cancer Care benefit where he gave his services free and we stumped up 250 squid a head to eat, drink and be entertained. And entertained we were. He was very funny - as you might expect. As it was all in a good cause, work was happy to let us stay there as long as we liked - hence the crawling back after 4pm a little bit worse for wear.
