I was asked to do it by an old colleague (the first analyst I ever met in around 1993), so I couldn't say no and it was great to catch up with him.
I didn't stay for lunch but wanted to get home as I have so much to do before flying out on Sunday.
When I got home I got my post, which confirmed it was a speed camera I set-off on the motorway the other night coming back from Heathrow. On the plus side I was doing 7 miles an hour less than when I got last time in 1998 and don't have to attend one of those speed awareness classes. On the bad side its £100 and 3 points. Oh well, if I only get caught once ever 18 years I can live with that.
Time for a new smaller (slower) car.
