I had the pleasure of encountering an old banking colleague this morning, whom I hadn't met for almost twenty years, at the Linenhall Library.

I took the opportunity to congratulate Colin on tying the matrimonial knot; and apprised him of this and that, including the noble alter ego, Lord Belmont.

Later, I cycled over to Donegall Place, where I dismounted and ambled into Marks & Spencer's food-hall in the basement, where I bagged battered scallops, a cheese & onion pasty, Jersey butter, softer butter, asparagus tips, Ambrosia apples from Italy (!) and strong mints.

I passed SS Nomadic in the Hamilton Dock on the way home, where traditional granite paving was being laid. Nomadic is enveloped in protective sheeting.
