Day 35 of my abstinence and I feel like crud....worse than crud.....
Last night was my first 'social event' without the evil weed, sitting by friends who were industriously rolling their own cigs and by the door to the car park where people were smoking.
It was the Mediaeval Banquet for the Company of Chivalry. I finally handed in my application last night - only to be told that a new form was being sent out in a couple of weeks!
The entire company were there, bar a couple, and what a lot of new faces - so I stuck with the people I knew already. So there was about 40 of us for a seven course meal, cooked by our own Vintner, and the various promotions within the company. My beloved Aginoths have been promoted to yeomen - while I am a villein as a newbie.
I'm waiting on Aginoth to send me some photos to use, 'cos I forgot to put batteries in my camera! He kindly took a photo of me, Mrs A and Vic in our dresses.
We had some knightings, some promotions and some punishments. Some drank too much too early, some drank late into the night (early morning!), some (like me) drank in moderation and flaked at about 1am.
It was fun, and interesting, and educational.
now I need some sleep..........
No sleep apart from a brief nap today. Sinuses are heating up nicely and a fine headache is brewing. I think a nice bubble bath and an early night is called for......so I will be well for work tomorrow.
