Job Lost


This week Mark Thompson (DG of the BBC) told the BBC of his plans to cut 2500 jobs and to stop running BBC Buses and Open Centers.

This means that I am now looking for new work, inside and outside the BBC. Where as I have time to find something, my contract will not end until Aug 2008, the job I love will end in March.

It's sad news for me and all the people that work in the open centers and on the buses but also a sad day for the BBC as it will lose its hard earned contact with it's listeners and viewers.

Sleep in - No chance

Two days off work - Great chance to catch up on my sleep. No Chance, Jessica keeps us awak from 2am on Monday morning and on Tuesday we had to take her for her Jabs.

Well I say we had to take her, what I mean is they told us to take her. Turns out they were wrong and she didn't need any jabs.

Oh well, work tomorrow, maybe I can sleep there.

Scout Camp


I've just got back from spending 3 nights in a tent in Drifield. It was all part of the Scout camp that was happening there. 100 years of scouts. It was great fun if a little cold at night. The BBC Humberside web pages are going to get loads of photos and audio soon.

Maggies mum is coming over tomorrow. She is staying until saturday. (I think)

Well here is my new blog.

First time I have got a blog up and running and here it is.

Im in Lancashire at the moment, visiting frends and family after the birth of my first baby, Jessica.

Today we went to see Jessica's Great Grandma then on to The BBC Bus (Lancashire) to see Chris and Sall. Great to see the guys from Lancashire and it reminded me that it is back to work for me on Friday for the Scout camp in Driffeld.

Chris give me a few ideas about how to get around the whole wifi problem that I'm having on the Humberside bus and Sally interviewed Margaret about what it is like to have a water birth.

I will have to listen to that tomorrow between 2pm and 3pm.

Thanks Guys.
