What?! I hear you cry. Alas I was not too well and had to send my apologies and it is even more annoying since I learned that Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue and Mark Gatiss were all in attendance along with many of my SHSL colleagues.
I have heard nothing but good about it since which, despite reminding me what I missed out on, is encouraging and I will get along to see it as soon as I can.
On the upside I took possession of a frock coat today. It's not vintage but, in combination with other items, will form part of my wardrobe for the 2015 Annual Dinner (assuming I get in of course). I have also, over the past three days, added 2000 words to my biography of Conan Doyle's Windlesham years.
So it's not all bad.
