The Met Office gleefully announced that their definition of Autumn started on 1 September.
I have to counter that with my view that you really need to have had a Summer in order to call the next season Autumn.
This week has been a little different from the norm.
Good gig on last Saturday, so went to town and visited my Mum in the afternoon. We had a bit of a meal in the pub which always goes down well.
The working week was short due to the Bank Holiday, there was more covering for the supervisor who has had more leave, there was no Cub Scout meeting due to the Summer break but a Scouters meeting on Tuesday and finally helping out at a Family Day at Canon today.
My normal duties could have been tricky, and I am sad to say that I had a couple of run-ins with the more able of my work colleagues (not the first problem and I have mentioned this in my blog previously).
Today's extravaganza was an annual event at the Canon UK HQ office and grounds.
As always lots of planning (not by me) but as much help as possible eases the magic and makes it work.
I got a few tables into position, set up a trail around the grounds and made sure that things don't get out of hand on the Bouncy Castles.
Every one seemed to have a good time.
It was a good and enjoyable day but a long one as helping hands were a little short on the ground.
My wages were a few cups of tea, a couple of glasses of Pimm's and half a pizza.
Here is a wee bit of Canon history for you. The evolution of the instantly recognisable logo.
As mentioned earlier, The Gaslight Anthem put on a fabulous gig at the Shepherd's Bush Empire last Saturday.
I don't often say this, but the support from Against Me! left me absolutely cold. It was emo-rock play at Volume number 11. A row even through my ear plugs.
Pretty excited as this week's main event is Ian Anderson's performance "Jethro Tull:The Rock Opera". I know that it is just a way to present his back catalogue a fresh outing, but what a brilliant idea - tell the story of the agricultural pioneer with old songs and visual extras. Historic link about Jethro Tull here.
It could be said that "At last, Ian Anderson pays tribute to the man whose name his band Jethro Tull stole", but not by me.
I am just really looking forward to it.
