Smoking Ban
Thursday 16th February 2006 1:54 pm

I knew there was something really important I wanted to blog about yesterday:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/em/-/1/hi/uk_politics/4714992.stm

We're getting a smoking ban for summer 2007. After all that wrangling over pubs that sell food etc, I can't believe it's gone with such a big majority. Although interestingly, only the Tories had a majority of no ban. I wish it came into effect sooner but I'm looking forward to being able to go to the pub and be able to breathe while I'm there, and not have to wash all my clothes afterwards.

I'm also undecided about what I'm going to do over Easter. We established that I basically can't eat any passover food, so there's no way I'm going to go home and watch everyone eat nice food while I eat the ordinary disgusting stuff. And I'm not staying here either.

I have had people try to convince me to go to Eastercon, which would be quite cool as I've never been to Scotland before, so I could take some extra days off and have a look round Glasgow. Or I could go to Rotaract Conference, which isn't quite as badly north as I thought - it's in Windemere. I've never been to the Lake District either, so I'd quite like to go there too. Only bad side is I have to decide by the end of the month.

On the other hand I could just bugger off somewhere else entirely. I liked mum's suggestion of Paris except I don't think I can quite deal with the food issue in a foreign language yet and Easter weekend is a really bad time to go to Europe, given that they're worse than us about Sundays.

I thought about going to America - I can only cope with the place with for a week anyway, but mum pointed out that's a long way to go. Although not as far as Australia, but that would be the one place that would require travel sickness pills and mine went out of date in May.

So I just don't know!
