As you know if you have read my post “Being made redundant – my story” I have been out of work since July 2016 – that’s longer than I perhaps thought I would be and you’ll see from the above post that I was going to start looking then, but it never happened! I think I enjoyed being at home too much but it is now time for me to start looking for a job.
8th July 2016 – a day I will always remember, as it was my last day at work. I can’t quite believe it has been nearly a year since I was made redundant and I said goodbye to my friends and colleagues. Continue reading “Being made redundant – my story”
I thought I’d share with you the podcasts that I’m listening to at the moment.
They are, in no particular order:-
The Danny Baker Show – Danny Baker and Lou Pepper present this two hour extravaganza live on a Saturday morning (9am – 11am) on Radio 5 Live. The format each week is mostly the same in that Danny will tweet a selection of topics for listeners to peruse before he leaves for the studio. The person with the most obscure and/or funny story will share it on air. There is a guest which Danny will chat in-depth to and then there is the Sausage Sandwich Game. Ahh the Sausage Sandwich Game – a hilarious game in which two callers (playing for any team they support) score goals against each other by answering trivia questions about the celebrity that week, including whether said celebrity has red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all on their sausage sandwich. My description doesn’t do it justice – you really have to listen to the show to get the full effect. Continue reading “Podcasts I’ve been listening to”

I’ve been listening to a lot of old episodes of Desert Island Discs recently after stumbling across and enjoying Bob Harris’ episode from February 2014.
For those of you that don’t know, Desert Island Discs is a BBC Radio 4 programme in which a guest is invited by the presenter to choose the eight recordings (I think originally they were gramophone records) they would take with them to a desert island. The first episode was recorded by the creator Roy Plomley in 1942. Michael Parkinson took over in 1985 and Sue Lawley presented for 18 years from 1988. Kirsty Young is the current presenter.
