Strike! 2011/11/30

The children were off today from school and nursery because of the civil service strike action.

We really enjoyed meeting Daddy Dave at lunchtime in the bustle of the city centre, and everywhere just seemed different and fun.  I almost wished there were more strikes as it really was a special family time.

I don’t mean to disrespect the unions etc., but a lot of Daddy Dave’s work colleagues took the day off work for their kids, and all-in-all the feedback and vibe was very positive — which is a bit of a shame I suppose for the strikers!  I guess their aim was to disrupt and cause a fuss, but it seems to have given everyone an excuse for some family time, and the shops seem to have benefited from the unexpected Christmas shopping.

The amount of people I bumped into while shopping after lunch with the kids was unbelievable!  There was such a great spirit, and I think the strike has made us all feel a lot more Christmassy somehow.

[Poster of Micky Flanagan. Out Out Tour 2011]We got granny to babysit and headed for the King’s Theatre to see Micky Flanagan.  We paid over twenty quid to sit in the gods (aka “The Gallery”).  He had no support and did two parts with a 15 minute interval.  We were out before quarter to ten.  It was a Sunday night after all.

Colin NorrisOnce again, loads of people have been getting in touch.  This time it is because the BBC ran a program about convicted serial killer Colin Norris.

They showed some old footage of “The Boyfriend” that had my sister, Joobes, and Colin Norris on stage.  We went to school with Colin.  When I heard that he was convicted of being a serial killer, I was very surprised. (more…)

[B&W Pic of African Dancing]We’re back, in fact everyone’s back!  The sun’s shining, everyone’s happy. Good times!

Papa and Charlie have reported that India is really making progress (they keep on about us going out there with them sometime).  It was just magic to see them again.

My mother is back from helping out with the twins in England. Joobes is recovering well now.  We’re all so thankful for that.

Charlie took care of Oli and DP to let us grab a wee break, a much needed break, and off we went.  (more…)
