I think some congratulations are in order. To myself, on my marriage.
Yes, it seems that I am now married, so so an apparent rumour back in Aberdeen would have it. The first I heard of it was a few weeks ago, getting an email (which I haven't replied to yet) expressing surprise at my marriage. Then on the phone yesterday, my brother said he'd been asked about it too, and it seems that a few months ago, when exceptionally drunk, my brother had started telling people I'd got married to a Taiwanese girl.
So, although I've been dreadful with updating this diary and writing emails, it seems that I've got a great excuse, as I settle down with my delightful, if fictional bride.
