Niche Interests

On Saturday I went to the ABBAMAIL convention, Mad 05 (mini ABBA Day 05), which was great fun. This was about the fourth or fifth ABBA convention that I’ve been to and perhaps the most interesting.

Previous ones I’ve been to have had clearly defined themes, whereas this one was a little more general.

As well as work, there’s also been a lot of socialising, including dinner with Damien at a restaurant in Chinatown, a beer or two with Michaela and then after work drinks on Friday night.… Read the rest “Pat Visits”
