Gosh a ‘non Wogan week’! And we all survived the turning on of the Hadron collider – which obviously didn’t collide. Success on the broadcasting front on the day in question (see below). Jolly decent of Johnnie to read me out!
I am amazed by Germans!
Travelling home on Monday evening on my favourite motorway – the M4 – we drivers were greeted at one moment by the spectacle of a completely bare bottom squatting earthwards to enable the owner (a young lady – judging by the bits of her we were privileged to see!) to meet the call of nature! Although the moment was necessarily fleeting due to the speed we were passing the incident – we all had time to notice the view and the German plates on the adjacent vehicle! They really do have no shame!!
I had a fun week at work. The company in its wisdom recently authorised the purchase of new chairs (a rare occurrence – last permitted in about 1989!). As the person in charge of furniture it was my luck to order them. I went for the all singing all dancing variety! On Thursday we wheeled them out. The next few hours were spent in staff playing with all the knobs and levers – much hilarity and very little work followed.
Assistance was at hand and I offered this excellent advice on Chair Adjustment by way of on-line instructions
Of course there are always those who don’t appreciate a gift horse when it canters up and nuzzles you! The offer was actively, firmly and abruptly refused by a couple of those I have the dubious pleasure of working with – to put it plainly I was left in no doubt what I could do with these new objects of seating pleasure! It is true you can never please all the people all of the time!
The Henley Show
Today was the highlight of the social calendar in our neck of the woods – The Henley Show! Lots of stalls and opportunities to spend one’s hard earned cash – and of course all those fillies in tight jodhpurs for Major Dickie to enjoy looking at! I quite liked the cattle – all scrubbed up and clean and no whiff of the farmyard about any of them!
And of course then there was the preview of Strictly come Dancing to watch, followed by Sue Perkins conducting and our Great Leader doing his bit at “Prawns in the Dark”. The Major and I retired early.,,………..
Good night dear reader – The Major is calling me to the boudoir!
