Went the day well?Posted: March 3, 2015
The trip into central London took just over thirty minutes, and by 3.30pm I was walking through the doors of Freemason’s Hall and was in the lift on my way to Temple No.14 on the third floor. The meeting started at 4.00pm and we all had a great and enjoyable time … and I even managed to deliver my part – ‘The Address to the Brethren’ – without making a total mess of it.
(I did make one mistake. I confused the number of my London Lodge – which is 3722 – with that of my Mother Lodge – which has the same four numbers but in a different order – and caused everyone to have a good laugh. As part of the ritual states that we should be ‘happy and communicate happiness‘, I think that I managed to do that!)
We ate an excellent after-meeting dinner at the Kingsway Hall Hotel, and I won a bottle of sparkling wine in the raffle. The meal ended at about 8.45pm, and I was getting into my car to drive home by just after 9.20pm … which meant that I just managed to avoid the start of the overnight roadworks that have been closing the stretch of the Blackwall Tunnel Approach Road that I have to use to get home.
So all-in-all the day went very well indeed!
