I will be AWOL for the rest of the week as I nip off to Rome to watch a bit of football (Match ticket not yet obtained). So have a bonny week and don’t harm yourself. While I am there, I will say hello to Russell Crowe and recite a few lines from Gladiator…
My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius,
Commander of the Armies of the North,
General of the Felix Legions,
loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius,
father to a murdered son,
husband to a murdered wife,
and I will have my vengeance — In this life or the next.
Well it would be rude not to, wouldn’t it?
