I was back to work (at last) for the first time after my holiday today and spent a long time trying to play catch-up. There is obviously a natural law that dictates that as soon as you take time off from work, then you are needed back immediately.
Never mind, the gang in the print room managed to successfully achieve the impossible by getting the last of the Rock Challenge orders (Sir Henry Floyd in Aylesbury) out of the door in a single afternoon. A remarkable achievement considering the complexity of the design!
Before going back to ‘real’ blog posting, I thought that it might be a good idea to show a couple of holiday snaps to prove that Dianne and I have really been away, so here goes..
Yours truly with a couple of new friends that he met while on holiday.
Above is a photo of me with a couple of other ‘guests’ on the Voyager of the Seas. They may look a tad strange, but then, I do move in some interesting circles. Admittedly, bumping into a couple of penguins on their annual holiday did strike me as being a bit odd at a latitude of 5° North. A sign of global warming perhaps?
Dianne trying to hide the fact that she spent most of her holiday in shops.
As can be seen from the shot above, Dianne spent a lot of time looking around the shops. The rest of the time (as seen here) she tried to pretend that she did not spend all of her time in shops! Fortunately, we were refused the mortgage that we needed to buy any remotely ‘useful’ item from any of them, so we managed to spend very little over the 2 weeks spree.
Lastly, I have a new contender for the useless sign award:-
Do not throw your car into the toilet!
It is reassuring that the nice people from Royal Caribbean fly their Green credentials by forbidding their passengers from disposing of their cars down the toilet! Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me, especially when you consider the difficulty of smuggling a roller on board in the first place, but it has obviously been a problem in the past and, quite rightly, should be stamped out!
Back to normality with my next posting (I promise)!!!
