Yesterday was rather hectic for us. However I still had time to do some serious driving. FW has been rather concerned over the last few days due to the amount of driving I’ve been doing. Then she became more concerned as I then started playing football. Then she got really worried when she started hearing artillery shells and bullets winging around the lounge.
Yes, I’ve managed to rescue my XBox from the cupboard of storage. This was preparation for 2 things:
1. I needed to retrieve my car radio and speakers from the cupboard ready for fitting into Magda tomorrow.
2. We needed to tidy the dining room in preparation for the arrival of FW’s new addition to the family – a Welsh Dresser. I’m sure a picture will emerge shortly for you.
So yesterday I had to take FW to the station to catch a train to Swansea for the Tong Len Quiz Night. She was helping Alice and Co. to set up. I was left behind to collect the Dresser from its old home. After running around for an hour and a half I had 10 minuts to sit down before I drove to Swansea.
I love quiz nights. No, I mean I realy, really, really, really LOVE!!!!! quiz nights. Not just because I’m a smart a***d git but I love pitting my wits against others. Last night was no let down. Thanks to everyone on our team for helping us to do so well. Many thanks especially to FW, Lemly & Invertebrate as together we made a great team.
There is something that is great about having an evening with friends, raising money for charity and feeling that you have done something good and worthwhile with your time. In all we raised close on £900 for Tong Len and helped take Mike’s dream closer to reality. We are helping to ensure that his, and more importantly God’s, work is carrying on.
For those who maybe interested it was a close run evening. At the penultimate round it was level pegging between us and We’ve Got Wood, our “friendly” rivals. The choice for the final round was movies or TV quiz shows. Thankfully the chosen option was movies. As soon as we saw their answers, when we were marking, we knew we’d run. Thanks to Lemly & Invertebrate for providing the winning answer.
Yes, WE WON…… What’s more I had no need to do my normal over exuberent celebrations. I wasn’t totally gracious in victory but made sure that I didn’t rub people’s nose in defeat.
Without Team Wood the evening wouldn’t have been so much fun. It injected a good level of competition and friendly rivalry. Cheers to all on Team Wood for such a good contest.
