May has thus far been a pretty physical one in the office, with van loads of kit going to external events and room set ups galore for internal events. All going on with staff sickness in the background.
I feel like I deserve a well earned long weekend, which luckily I have coming up.
More of that later, as I am getting ahead of myself...
I had replaced my old BBQ as rust had taken hold, so a panic build took place, followed by a panic 20+ mile drive to find a suitable gas bottle - on a very hot pre-Bank Holiday Sunday.
It went pretty well, and a good time was had by all - especially the young people who were in the paddling pool.
I had done the Tourist Boat, and Thames Clipper version of the river trip before but this was a little different. The Thames Rockets are rib inflatables which potter as far as Tower Bridge, then open up between there and Greenwich. After Greenwich, restrictions are lifted and the boat is thrown about a little.
It was a little wet, but very, very enjoyable <More here>.
We have a plan for the second bedroom to make it fit for an 8 year old to stay, but in essence I need to clear out a lot of stuff.
This is a job worth doing, and will be on-going.
The appointment of Unai Emery as manager at my beloved Arsenal is very interesting. I wish him all the best in the coming seasons.
Watch this space....
