Limited Travels

I haven't written much for a while - I'm sure I've missed out plenty of notable moments (for example, reporting on the loss of Christopher's first tooth, which he didn't make a song-and-dance about until he learned about the 'tooth fairy'!)

Football boyIt ws a busy, enjoyable weekend - I took the children into town on Saturday afternoon, to look for birthday presents for Beth (remarkably early, especially for me) and it was followed a family trip to Oxford on Sunday to see Pete, Lisa, Jordan and little Eden. She's still in 'tiny baby' mode; I can't believe how quickly Luke's grown and this certainly put it in perspective. Pete and Lisa are tired but still came into the back garden to play football with Jordan and Christopher (who's really showing signs of being a talented goalkeeper). Ella seemed content to push a wheelbarrow of leaves around the garden as footballs zoomed past her.

Friday was interesting, too - I didn't get home until quite late, since I'd been asked to go on a 'home visit'. A religion and ethics correspondent had moved house and needed all her home studio wiring set back up, and a new soundcard installed on her computer. A colleague and I took a hair-raising minicab ride through the rush-hour traffic eastward, and we didn't return to the office until long after my shift had finished. It's good to get out and about, though - today I'm attending a company Open Day in Reading.


The Wedding Present Finally, yesterday was a fairly average day - there was loads going on in the office, and I managed to attend yet another fine 6music hub session. This time it was The Wedding Present, who've been around for as long as I can remember (although I can't recall any of their major hits!) They seem like down-to-earth people, but when they played, there was a chemistry that showed just how established and experienced they are.

With perks like this, how could I not enjoy my job?
