Seem to have discovered twitter. Username same as here.

Did good bit more of Belgrave on Wednesday, followed by lots of the West End on Thursday. On Friday I met up with eldritchreality for a late lunch, then with riak in the evening at firebug. where we were randomly joined by djlostbot and beltainethecat's pet human and a couple of their friends. Alcoholic beverages were consumed.

On Saturday ioannab and I went to Market Harborough and back via some very odd routes, trying to trace National Cycle Network route 6 and 64. The routes were quite low-traffic but insanely hilly. These should appear on the cycle map sometime later this week. Also, we saw lots of horses.

back from Leicester on Sunday, along the usually freight-only Oakham to Kettering Line. Since it was a class 222 with its evil anti-signal windows, I failed to get a GPS trace. Didn't bring bicycle to London in end, I had too much other luggage. May keep bicycle in Leicester until I have finished mapping it.

Pembury on Sunday was not bad. I sorted the Carcassonne tiles out for the expansions from the base set, and then we (me, timeplease, wildeabandon, aquarionical) had an actual game of normal Carcassone for the first time in ages. Tiles are now marked on the back so this problem will not arise again. Still need to sort out the Traders and Builders and King and Scout tiles from each other.

aquarionical brought along Risk Express, which was indeed less tedious than Risk (in fact, it seems to be a different game that has then had some of the same names for things added to it) but also seemed to even less skill (possibly I am only saying this because I lost).
