Early on in our two-week holiday, which we are spending in and around London, Elaine and I went in to see how things are coming on with the new Volans office in Bloomsbury Place. Then we had lunch with Sam, before returning to the office to screw legs on to a new sofa. Then Elaine and I visited the neighbours in the British Museum, which is some three minutes walk away. We particularly wanted to see the Sutton Hoo hoard, after reading the book The Dig, but were struck by the standard of the exhibition design throughout. Then a raid on Waterstones and the old Virgin record store in Piccadilly on the way home.
