A night with M

..,at the Civil Service Club near Scotland Yard. On any other night I would have been disappointed with the place; it's not a haven for retired spies and ministers making choppy deals.Bond must have been hovering somewhere, but I didn't see a single leather armchair and no-one mentioned portfolios or panama, not even once.

M was the most magical thing about tonight. I look up at the full moon so patched and dappled behind the trees, and don't feel anything at all.

That'll change in its own good time, I guess.

The bar is clean, functional and ordinary. I don't go there as often as I used.

Upstairs there are lounges, TV and function rooms. Further up, there are rooms that members can rent for a night or two.

It has its moments, but don't go on karaoke night. No-one needs to see aging servants of the crown trying to be Madonna with beer-glass bras...

Me! Me! I want to see these things...if I'd known these perks existed, I would have gone into the service years ago!

M was staying there overnight...pleasant enough room, nicer than your average Premier Inn stylee. The restaurant served us surprisingly good food, considering how ordinary downstairs seemed.
