10th June 2011

Busy week this week! After the choas of Take That taking over the city I thought it might go a bit quiet, I needn't have worried. Tuesday I was at the theatre to see 'Midnight Tango' featuring Vincent and Flavia from strictly Come Dancing. Now if I'm completley honest this was more for Laura than me, but the fact it had Flavia in it was enough for me to be convinced to go! It turned out to be a great night.

It is the first time I've been to anything that is completely music and dance with no speach. Even I could tell there was a story there but thankfully Laura could fill me in with the bits I missed at the interval. There was a lot going on on stage and sometimes tricky to know where to look, I did find my gaze stopping on whereever Flavia was though! The dancing was amazing, and I'm told that Flavia's lines were exceptional (that's a technical term apparently).

The rest of the week had been geared to our bring a Pound to work day which we managed to pull off again. The day is always like no other in the office with people in and out all day and the whole team getting behind this great cause. This year we were raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care and the collection team from Marie Curie were fantastic and never stopped working all day. Typically we ended up in a pie shop and Simon got his feet nibbled by fish (he said he was working, honest!) It is always something which makes this job so special, seeing the genorosity of people on Wearside, in a time when people haven't got a lot they are still prepared to give.

So after a couple of busy weeks probably time to drop a gear and slow down a bit...except we have still got £8200 on Sunderland Secret Sound, we are preparing for this years airshow and of course we are bringing the Kings of Leon to the Stadium of Light, it's a good job this isn't like real work!
