A delightful team away day in Greenwich, at least for those who could make it. We kicked off at The Old Brewery, then went for a wander to the top of Observatory Hill, then back to play what Astrid told us was Viking Chess – but which we were forced to adapt heavily, because we didn’t have the right utensils. So we used bottles of water as the relevant pieces, to the sound of slightly faltering operatic arias from the nearby building – and by the end of the game we were thinking of trademarking the wondrous Bottle Battle. Afterwards, Sam and I boarded a river boat back to Embankment. Wonderful views of the city, but it would be great if they would wash the windows.
