The ship arrived back in Southampton this morning, an hour late because of some problem with the "starboard converter" (I forget what that is, but it's important!) in the night. But still caught the 9.00 train for London.

Partly unpacked and did a load of washing. Caught up on mail and other things after a week of very limited internet access. Fell asleep doing that. Yawn.

Had dinner with a friend and later attended a little entertainment evening by a group of local singers. Always good fun.

Tomorrow I'm going to Greenwich for tea and a tour of the Queen's House. The Queen herself isn't involved. This is a building near the maritime museum and the event is for Friends of the maritime museum and old observatory (I'm going as a guest, as I'm not a member.)
