There was relatively little happening at the office, I had to cancel yet another training course, everyone is so busy none of the lads can be spared to attend although they do need to get their training certs updates. The back pain is really all down to muscle pain now, nothing in the spine, whilst still sore it shows it's getting better. I had a quick chat with Martin Rickitt, just catching up prior to our trip to Sri Lanka, it won't be long now. All the dashing around I was dismayed to find myself dehydrated, just hadn't stopped for drinks, need to remember some water next time I'm in a 'remote' location atop a building. Mandy had given me the Cuba file in case we needed to settle up soon but the balance isnt due until the end of October so thats a job for another few weeks time, when I got home the Michilen map of Cuba had arrived and that was a good move so slipped it in the folder and away until the back of October. I managed to get some labels for the Irish stock ready for the Dublin Pirt rally, I had a look a\t their web site and there are quite a few buses entered, wishing i was going to be there, lots of them reminded me of the time I went to work there in 1979 and then those like the Bombardiers from my final years there, they were real monsters, sounded dreadful when new but they were trying not to buy British at the time.
I've finished the first of the Oxford archive films and now working on the second which cover 2001, this should be on the shop later although I fancy a bit of a rest for my back so might catch the first episode of the Cilla story, an era we lived through day by day, be interesting to see a modern take on it from a more gritty director rather than the cosy warm glow of Midwives and hospital dramas we normally used to get. Not a lot else in the post but the phone never seems to have stopped this evening, its always good to hear from our friends who are customers and get the latest from the far flung corners of the country. I'm listening to Classic FM in the day and on my jopurneys to work and back, I've overdosed on the Scottish news, can't stand anymore, I'd like not to know on Friday and see if the world looks different either way, I'm sure it won't.
Some uploads from Youtube from the last couple of nights.
