On Wednesday I had a meeting at the Guildhall with the Clerk to the Chamberlain’s Court, Murray Craig, to discuss our Ordinances and what changes to them we might wish to make and how we would go about doing it.
We ended up talking about the sheep drive, because everyone who attends the Chamberlain’s Court to obtain their Freedom of the City knows one thing about being a Freeman – you can drive your sheep over London Bridge. And they all want to know how they can do it and when.
I left him for a governance meeting in the afternoon, and then I went back to the Army and Navy to change into my dinner jacket and wait for Janet to arrive. Her train was delayed but she rushed in through the door and did a superwoman twirl and changed into her posh frock, and we were off back to the Guildhall for the Court Dinner. It was a very intimate and enjoyable evening, although the room was a little on the small side, but if the volume of conversation was anything to go by, everyone was having a good time. I managed to avoid the temptations of the bar when we got back to the Club and Janet and I headed for bed.
