A Panda's Point of View

4th May 2012

Another very busy week at Sun Fm towers, but the highlight had to be the visit from Patrick the Panda. I received a letter (from Patrick) explaining that he lived at Cleadon Village Nursery and liked visiting different places, and recently had been to meet the cast of Coronation street. This had given him a taste for fame and he wanted to come and visit us at Sun Fm, presumably to meet the most famous person here, Simon Grundy!! Patrick was an instant hit and we all wanted our photo taken with him. He did everything from reading the news to sitting in the studio and even had a go at fixing our internet connection, but even he couldn't make it work again. He spent five days with us and really became part of the team before he had to return to the nursery. I hear that he trying to get on the telly next, so watch out because you never know where he might pop up.

So it's a bank holiday weekend then, who is planning a BBQ? I've tried to discourage people from this because there are so many factors which have to be just right for them to work. Don't get me wrong I've been to plenty of successful ones but just as many that have been a wash out. It seems that bank holiday and BBQ go together, but I'd much rather have the food cooked properly in the oven and enjoy the day with friends. My best BBQ story is this, nothing to do with food. Years ago I was at a friends BBQ and everything was going fine, for a change. My mate was cooking and he asked me to hold something so I put my bottle of beer down on the little shelf underneath the BBQ. It was only there for about two minutes, but long enough for the top of the bottle to heat up so that when I took a drink I burnt my mouth. I have never lived this down and possibly is the root of my dislike for BBQ's.

Whatever you are doing over the weekend enjoy and I'll blog again soon, promise, I know I have been a bit slack with it.
