Tuesday 20 April 2010: Room with a view two
Back in this dump for my annual work visit to the North East. However, due to lack of availability in the breezeblock facing rooms, I had to book myself into the Platinum Wing which instead overlooks a grass embankment.
I do have Egyptian cotton sheets though, a wee pillow with 'sweet dreams' embroidered upon it, a 32" widescreen telly and a phone in the toilet. And I was presented with a giant warm chocolate cookie on arrival which I'm trying really, really hard not to eat.
Edit: Aberdeen always lets itself down. I've just been accosted by a chap with full-arm tattoos and a bottle of white wine asking me if I'd like a glass. I said "No thanks. Are you trying to get rid of it?"
To which he replied "I'm a scaffolder! We're mental in ma line eh work. Dinnae worry - I'll get rid of it... watch this!" and downed a full glass.
Back to room. Door locked.
