The best Christmas present in the World, ever, I promise.
It arrived today.
It is brilliant, I promise you. I can not reveal more. However, full pictures will be available on Christmas day. So after I have watched Queeny, they will be uploaded on to the blog.
I spent the day today out on site, visiting a property in Vauxhall that has had a flood recently. I decided to drive, and was pleasantly surprised that it only took me one hour and ten minutes to get there. It was a glorious drive along the Embankment. London is a glorious city.
I say that.
The A13 was closed on the way out of London, due to someone having a crash around Barking. So I sat on the East India Dock Road having a road race with a bloke on roller skates. I am proud to say that the bloke on the roller skates won. Well done whoever it was that had a crash today.
Two and a half hours to get back to the office.
I got back to the office and some people had been out for a Christmas Lunch. They were still wearing their Christmas Santa hats, how I laughed!!!
One of my work associates, Martin, had left a message on my answerphone. He is a Tottenham fan, and was disappointed when I was recently turned down for their Manager's position. He was going up to Manchester City to watch Spurs in the Carling Cup.
The message was a five minute commentary of Nobby versus Stobby all the way up to Manchester. The final score was something like 26-11! I will try and transcribe the message tomorrow to give a full report.
Anyway, I had better apply for a few jobs. Come on Christine, we are almost there!

Dear Ms Boulter
I am writing following your now not so recently advertised jobs in the Guardian dated 29/09/07.
I appreciate that I am late in responding, but I would like to apply for all of the positions advertised.
Can you believe I was stuck on the A13 today for around two hours?
I attach my CV for your perusal, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
How to tv want some people:
'Please send CVs and Salary/Package expectations'
I admired your advert in the Guardian dated 29/09/07.
You have asked that I send in CVs. Unfortunately, I only have one CV, but I attach it for your perusal.
As far as salary and package goes, I am not really that bothered.
I went to a property today, and got so much stick, that I thought I might like to get in a canoe, and go to Panama for a few years.
I look forward to your earliest response.
Cultural Enterprise Ofiice: Charity.
Folk, roots and world music development: APD 5/10/07.
Anyway, Spurs beat Man City tonight, so I reckon there may be a drunken Nobby v Stobby recorded at around three a.m. tomorrow morning, I will let you know.
