eric byrne Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 Good Afternoon Everyone, Hope you are all well?its been a while since I last posted here,thought I would share with you whats going on in my backyard currently.Friday last we had the Olympian Parade through the streets of Glasgow,quite an occassion,most of the stars were there,though our tennis hero Andy Murray was absent,think everyone had a great time.Friday eve I was invited to attend a leaving party for my friend Sarah Swain who is leaving her job as a reporter for the Evening Times to take up a Editor of a Magazine in Dubai.Sarah had interviewed me some months ago for the newspaper for a feature called Clear the Air Campaign,it was later published as a two page spread,the campaign still continues,Sarah was actually given a journalist of the year award for her work with the newspaper and is in the running for some further award.Sarah's father had died some years ago to lung cancer,and she has made it part of her life to raise awareness of lung cancer issues in her work as a reporter.Since my interview with Sarah,we have become facebook friends so I hope to keep in touch with her in Dubai.She will be sadly missed by the lung cancer community in Scotland. I did mention here about me being successful in a job application for a front of house post,for Motherwell Theatre and Airdrie's John Wilson Theatre,I think they have held back my starting date,until the refurbishment of the Airdrie Theatre was complete,so I have been invited to attend a training course next week,its for three evenings,Mon,Tues and Wed,I am so looking forward to beginning work,not sure of my hours though,looking at the Theatres programmes,seems I could be working Thurs-Sat evenings two weeks on two weeks off?,however this will probably increase when Panto season starts in December.I love the theatre so I am going to spend,I hope,a lot of my time watching the shows,maybe get to meet the stars?. Well my outdoor lawn bowling season is drawing to a close,so the indoor season has commenced,I play Tues and Thurs evenings,however my new job may interfere with the Thurs evenings bowls. Summer is being replaced by Autumn,not that we had much of a summer this year with all the rainy days the UK has had,its been our wettest summer since 1912 according to the Met office,hope at least our winter this year will be a bit milder than of recent years?.I love the Autumn here in Scotland great photo opertunities as the forests become a blase of colours,apparently because of the wet summer,the forests are going to give a particularly special show this year?. I have a couple of trips to Birmingham in Oct to look forward to,only ever passed through this City some years ago,funny having two invitations to visit within a week of each other,one is the Roy Castle Annual delegates conference,the other the first meet up of Cancer Buddies Network,I suggested such a meeting and what you know?,everyone there agreed, so its on,so looking forward to meeting for the first time online faces. Think I have rambled on long enough,thanks for your forbearance if you have read thus far,Bye for now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
