13.3.2019 – The Goat Escape

Today we have a petting zoo outside out office, complete with smiley - bunnys, smiley - sheep, ducks, guinea pigs, alpaca, donkey and smiley - pony. The goats are very good at escaping from their cages and running round the quad's courtyard, much to the delight of those by the window.

17.1.2019 – Filmed for Radio

On Tuesday lunchtime our staff choir was filmed by the BBC to appear as a news item for local station BBC Radio Solent today, which they've also decided to show on the local television news. I heard that our performance would be on at 7:35am so I turned the radio on at 7am, only to hear my own voicesmiley - yikes This was broadcast at 7am as part of the News in the Julian Clegg show – I'm on at 33:40, with the main bit broadcast at 1:06:30:
'A choir has existed for over 5 years' was apparently the 3rd biggest local news story following Saints' smiley - football defeat and 'Warsash Woman gets stuck up tree', on a slow news day where nothing much has happened except for Theresa May scraping through another vote of no confidence with under 20 votes to spare…
Apparently while I was listening to the radio, at 7am the BBC's South Today programme also broadcast us on the telly as a 'coming up on tonight's show' bit.

11.1.2019 – Hoots Mon! Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Biscuits

Yesterday our smiley - cat brought home her first live smiley - mouse, and for a couple of hours there was a moose loose aboot this hoose, as they say up in Bonniesmiley - bunny Scotland. I'm currently drinking the new Yorkshire Tea Biscuit Brew, which is supposedly a biscuit-flavoured smiley - tea and is just smiley - weird.

26.9.2018 – The Show Must Go On

What do the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queen, the radio cast of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' and Bluebottle have in common? They've all performed at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre (previously The Empire Theatre and Gaumont Theatre), the 3rd largest theatre in the UK. Well, I'll be performing tonight as part of a show to celebrate the re-opening of the Mayflower Theatre following refurbishment.
The last time I was in the Mayflower was summer 2012, when Peregrin, who worked there, and I saw 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show Live!' there, the last time I saw him before his sudden death a few weeks later. So it will be mixed emotions. We're only there to perform two short songs and then provide backing vocals for the very last song in a 'let's see how many people we can fit on the stage for the finale' way.
The star of the show is Joe McElderberry, who is famous for being the worst ever X-Factor winner, the one who was so unbelievably bad everyone decided to go out of their way to buy Rage Against the Machines' 'Killing in The Name' in protest instead.
