Having made the promise that my 15 year old daughter could see Opeth in London (with a friend based in London) whilst not remembering the scheduled date was during the school term, yesterday was planned around having to get her back in time for school.
This involved seeing the House of Commons Car Park for the first time and sorting out the associated bureaucracy of that.
It did mean time to interview potential interns for the future and more time on getting more and more elements of the Treasury Model. I did suggest to the Treasury that I popped in to show them which software I needed, but they were not that enthusiastic about this. The Oxford Economic Forecasting group are also being very helpful.
Still as an ex-Heavy Metal Drummer it was reminiscent of gigs in The Odeon, New Street by bands such as Hawkwind - a band which I still think has qualities missing from much of today's metal. I didn't hear the gig myself although I waited for about 800 Metal fans to emanate from the Astoria before my daughter and her friend.
She did, however, get to school today on time.
