I am jealous

Writing about web page http://whitfriday.brassbands.saddleworth.org/intro.html

It’s Whit Friday, and therefore I should be having a cracking day out (traditionally one of the best of the entire year) with the band, marching and playing round the villages of Saddleworth having cracked open the first beers before midday. Most of my good friends at university are doing this right now; unfortunately I’m on the other side of the world in NZ.

Roll on next year!

  1. ... Is it that bad over there?

  2. Hey Ben,

    Random question – did you ring me earlier? More precisely, did you ring and ask for someone called Stuart (or a name beginning with S) or did it just sound like you?!!!

    Hope you’re ok. I’m not so much annoyed about missing Whit Friday as a result of revision, more that a lot of people I know are not revising and, more importantely, not worrying about it!

  3. The weather here is absolutely spectacular… sunny and blue skies, warm… perfect. Except I’m stuck at uni failing exams. Even now todays exam is over (which was really shit) I can’t get pissed cos I’ve got another tomorrow morning. I am truly a broken man.

    On a plus side, tomorrow is my penultimate exam so I need to go out and celebrate with the ginger and the weeman who finish then. Middleton says he “finishes failing” tomorrow, I know the feeling. I feel that going out tomorrow will limit the damage on tuesday when I actually finish my degree.

  4. Hehe, hands up who actually believes that Bruce is going to be more restrained on Tuesday because he’s been drinking today? :-p

For anyone still remotely interested, it’s back online. I’ll start updating it again soon-ish. For those of you who haven’t visited before and have found your way here via Google – and I know there will be some, because of the e-mails I’ve received in the past – I hope the entries about my flight training course are useful and informative. Over the next few weeks I will bring it up to date with what’s actually happened since I gained my CPL/IR in January 2008 and qualified on the Airbus the following May.

Enjoy reading.
