London Calling

Oh i'm a tad excited this week as on Wednesday i'm off to London, pleasure bound again. I'm going to see Pinter's People, which stars the very talented Bill Bailey. I can't wait. Until this year I hadn't been to London for at least 5 years. Wednesdays trip make it 3 times this year already..not bad considering it's still only February.

I'd just like to say thanks to the lovely Spence who won the tickets to Pinter's People and invited me along...thank you so much, i', really looking forward to this.

Anyway one and all I will attempt top do a write up on the play when I get back, although considering i've been meaning to do a write up about the 7 Seconds of Love gig I went to a couple of weeks ago (by the way they were fantastic, click on the link and give them a listen) I really wouldn't hold your breath

Fire Fire !

Ooohh I am now what is commonly known as an appointed person. It is now my responsibility to ensure that everyone is evacuated from my department when the fire alarm goes off. Great responsibility.....i've managed quite well without that for a good many years, and now it's kinda crept up on me. In short I am now a Fire Marshall. And how have I managed to gain this exalted office.....I spent 2 hours in a meeting room yesterday being told what my duties would be and then I spent an hour in one of the loading bays fannying around with fire extinguishers. Yup I actually got to set a few off. (Have to admit this bit was pretty good fun, and very messy. Also lunch was included which is always a good thing)

Anyway I now have a nice bright yellow Hi-viz vest with the words Fire Marshall emblazoned across the back in big red letters, and to go along with this most glorious of fashion accessories, a shed load of worry if the fire alarms do ever decide to go off. Mind you if they do go of I will be in charge and therefore can not get bollocked for shouting at people if they don't get of the arses to evacuate the building . Every cloud has a sliver lining
