Dedication's what you need, if you want to be a record breaker.
Nelson dedicatedx2 this last weekend. Nice to see lots of groovy people, like Mev, Mr. Reeves, the Chewys, Ros, the Bs and many others. Thanks to you all! I'm sure Nelson would say the same if he could talk. In this picture, everyone is smiling except Nelson who's bawling - and only Marius seems to have the heart to notice. Bless him.

Brazil Beckons. This time next month we will be trying to work out how to take the kitchen sink to Brazil on our imminent flight. We want to pack a high chair and a travel cot. And lots of clothes, and a DVD Recorder and a Colour Printer. And the kitchen sink, the Garden Shed, my bike, a barge pole, an Anvil and a Tube of lead piping...

Flights booked: 21st November. This weekend a dedication for Nelson at St.Mikes.

Tesco. The news recently reported that Tesco suppliers have been employing children in Bangladeshi factories. I guess Every Little Person Helps.

I've finally remembered my password and the fire alarm goes!

So its now tomorrow and I'm at work on my lunch break. I have to remember to write this blog or its not going to happen. Anyway, I'm 3 or 4 weeks into temping at York College. I'm in the HR dept as an "Assistant". It basically amounts to brain-mushing Admin although the people are alright. I do feel like I am stuck somewhere between Franz Kafka's the Trial and Ricky Gervais' the Office. Endless beauracracy (spelling?) and tacky open plan Office. Mustn't grumble. A job is a job after all and it pays its way.

Brazil update: 21 November our flights are booked.
