Hi Guys

I write this having just travelled back from Southampton where I have been working on a corporate training video for the maritime industry.

It was great fun to do and we turned around the project in double quick time.

I was playing the chief engineer and I was fortunate to be working with 2 great actors (Beatrice and Moey – thank you!) who not only made the time fun but also enjoyable.

My thanks must also go to Ben, Pete and Tomas who made my stay there as comfortable and stress free as they could, I hope there will be some more projects in the future as it is always great to do work that you enjoy doing whilst also getting paid for it!!

Once again I did some corporate stuff for British telecom, which is always a pleasure to do, thank you primarily to John and Ross who always make me feel welcome when we work together.

It's been a busy month for me personally as well, I took my daughter down to London to see “Billy Elliot” (which we have both seen before), we stayed over, did a bit of “hard rock café” and got a lazy train back home – it was wonderful.

Britain's got talent was fantastic to watch as was my daughters school show where she played the part of Jane in Mary Poppins and sang/danced her heart out in a whole array of other numbers.

The Midland music festival was just awesome with too many acts to mention but the stand outs on Saturday were:- The Christians and Level 42 with Scouting for girls (best by a country mile) and Westlife really cranking up the excitement on the Sunday. A fantastic weekend of music where I also got to hook up with friends and the ale flowed freely!!

My running is starting to get better but I still have to receive treatment every week, I am now up to 5.5 miles and getting better at every session, just gotta keep plodding!!

I have so much to do in the coming month: – England v Pakistan at the cricket, 2 day jaunt to Windsor to take in the sights and watch the horse racing, weddings to attend and birthdays to celebrate – it's going to be a busy month again!!!
