I come bearing gifts. There is loads of good stuff in this week’s newsletter – funding, job opportunities, competitions to win. I guess after however many months of producing the usual drivel one of them finally had to hit the mark. Monkeys and typewriters etc etc…

A point of administration – my wife is expecting a baby in three weeks so if there is a sudden interruption to the weekly missives that’s why. It’s not because I’ve finally been found out and asked to leave SSE. At least I hope not.

Enjoy the news, and have a super bank holiday weekend.

This week I have been without a television. We’re having building work done and it’s kicked up so much dust that it’s got into a circuit board or something similarly technical and now the TV doesn’t work. It’s awful. My evenings are empty. Things are so bad that my wife and I even found ourselves discussing whether to have a gate in the back garden or not. Bleak. I now have a four letter word to describe those people who say “Oh, we got rid of the TV and our lives have improved so much”: liar.

Heading to retirement: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

old-man-915219_640This is a little later and even more rushed than usual because I’ve been a meeting all morning about auto-enrolment pensions. Fascinating stuff for a Friday, I’m sure you’ll agree. I did use the meeting to work out that there are only 1655 more editions of Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You before I retire however, so make the most of them while you can – it’s not going to be here forever.

Enjoy this week’s news and have a good weekend.
