I’ve known my friend Birgit for 11,000 days today. That’s about 30 years and six weeks. I really ought to have bought her something  – lilies or pearls for a 30th anniversary. Maybe if we meet over the summer… will have to get a job first though…

Wasn’t expecting to be on coach transfer duty. Which meant I wasn’t expecting to be on the start pontoon at Roundhay Park…

At the end of last night’s Yorkshire & Lincolnshire AGM, Rob Brown, President of the Chartered Institute for 2016, presented me with my Chartered PR Practitioner certificate. And I *still* couldn’t raise a smile.

CIPR finally admits to the world that I’m a Chartered PR Practitioner. A month after the event. Maybe they’re embarrassed?
