Well, That was Embarrassing - 27th June 1007

After yesterday's fun at the tavern I was in no state to be on a council meeting, at least that was my claim. Gaius, however, was of quite a different opinion and I suppose it wouldn't do to let down Lord Godwin just because I had a bit too much mead.

But I'll tell you who was useless today - or at least more useless than usual - Merlin. Good God, give that man a bit of cider and he's under the table! Gwaine and I had to carry him back to his room! And he hasn't shown up for his duties all day. Gaius mentioned something about him suffering his comeuppance, before he gave me a disgusting tasting potion and sent me on my way.

It'll be amusing to see my manservant tomorrow I can tell you that.

Lord Godwin, the Council and I discussed the consolidation of our resources with Cenred (the kingdom) being so unstable at present. Father did have a point when he mentioned that Lord Godwin's (and some day Elena's) lands were strategic. They'll certainly provide a place to keep a force in case one of the factions in Cenred decide to try something.

I wonder...should I be writing this? Can Morgana read it, I sure as Hell hope not. Perhaps I should try some sort of test? How, I'm not sure...aside from a few days ago there's been no word on either her or Morgause, hasn't been for months. And if she can see this, well...she can just not respond.

I should give up on this book all together. It's magic after all...

Yet Another Warm Welcome - 21st June 1007

For Lord Godwin and Elena.

I have to admit, I perhaps didn't treat the moment with the proper dignity. I couldn't help emphasising how... 'strategic' these meetings are certain to be.

But, I'm pretty certain Lord Godwin was just as amused as I!

And it was nice to see Elena again, I'm hoping to prove my superiority on horseback to her at a later date.

Unortunately, that won't be tomorrow, which like today will be nothing but meetings.


I'm just going to pray that I can get through it.

Lord Godwin is Coming! - 20th June 1007

For another round of boring and no doubt annoying meetings.

I wonder though, if he'll bring Elena and if so...well, it's certainly going to be strange. Especially since we never found her maid.

I guess I should turn in, it's hard enough to stay awake in those meetings as is without throwing a lack of sleep in!
