Gadgets - we love 'em!!

The gadgets refers to the iPhone of which I had high expectations and was as excited about as my first cassette player in the early 80's, I got mine last week and am using to write this blog. It's the first blog since July and hopefully they will be a little more frequent with it's arrival...

Well, where to start, we had a good summer break, a week in Norfolk under canvas, well actually man made fibre nowadays, it was great apart from my childrens near panic filled episodes every time a bee or wasp appeared in the tent. We visited Banham zoo, best zoo we've taken the boys to, really great facilities and you get really close to the animals. We also went to Bewilderwood, a kind of adventure park set in the forest with loads of zip wires etc. Last place to note was a visit to Jimmy's Farm as featured in the BBC documentary of a few years ago - again great day out and can recommend the breakfast sausages!

Following that it was a solid 14 day stint at work, that's August in a cab for you, my resolve is to gradually get to the position when I can take most of the month off.... And spend most of it on hole with my family, next year we're planning to got to France to a friends farm house for two weeks... So anyway, after the long stretch we went down to the coast, Swalecliffe to be precise, where we camped again along with a few friends and although it was only three days, was a chance to recharge batteries.

So back to work in Sept, kids back to school, youngest now has a stricter teacher which will do him the world of good. Work has picked up considerably - much to our appreciation, atended a demonstrations against a convicted murderer doing the knowledge which was succesful.

Have had a few interesting passengers over the past few weeks, PR rep to food industry, some good fares via @tweetalondoncab which is a service offered thru Twitter by a group of likeminded tech savvy cab drivers read more about it here which please do pass on to friends and family, an easy way to assure yourself of a safe and reliable journey....

Passenger of most note was just this week, William Hague, shadow foreign secretary and 2nd in line to the throne if the inevitable happens at the forthcoming general election, a very amiable chap happy to talk about various issues and open about the need for the Tories to change the stereotype view that most folk have... He was on his way to the German Ambassadors residence for a shindig to celebrate the Merkel success.

Anyway must go it's late and I need to get up early for a full on day of church parade with the boys as part of their scouting comitments and rehearsals for my return to the am dram scene as part of Copacabana here's the link if you're in SE London

Thanks for reading, more soon and twitter feed is on your right cheers
