For the course this weekend I had to get up even earlier (6:30am) and catch two trains to the venue, which obviously meant waiting around in the freezing cold.
The previous course was for the local version of GCHQ /MI6 (sort of) but this weekends course is for the local version of MI5 (sort of) so when I was eventually allowed into today's venue I was asked by a very nice man (with a gun) for my passport and ordered me to put my mobile phone in a locker. So no photos again.
The course went well, then I has a few drinks with one of the guys,who had attended one of my course a few years ago.
In the evening I couldn't be bothered to go out, so had another burger, which I instantly regretted.
