- Look What We Got Given
Look what we got given.........
23rd November 2011
Morning peoples. A very boring and shortish post from me today as 1) it's cold 2) I'm tired 3) I have to go to work soon and look after the recently pregnant people of the North East. I would have made Chairman Steve write the post but he's suffering from the poorlyness (self inflicted hangover) and is barely capable of pushing in a straight line let alone post coherently. Today our thanks go to Jane Travers for whom we guest hosted the Tweet Treats tour back in October. Tweet Treats was a fantastic idea dreamed up by Jane and consists of a book of recipes of 140 characters or less that she gleaned from many celebrities on Twitter. The proceeds of this book are raising money for Médecins Sans Frontières to provide medical aid to people in danger. A very worthwhile cause in our humble opinion. You can read what Jane had to say about it HERE. We also follow her on Twitter and she generally amuses us on a daily basis. Warning - Don't be sending her sporting links though, she is self confessed sportingly challenged and won't be amused ;-). Anyway, Jane has very generously sent us a little parcel to raise money. Chairman Steve did consider pinching the chocolates but has been told to keep his paws off by Jane as they are part of the donation. We also need to send huge congratulations to Maria Duffy, a lovely chocoholic, shoe loving Mum of 4 that we also follow on Twitter. She has just been published! Her debut novel Any Dream Will Do has just been released this month and she has been wonderfully generous and sent us a copy to raise funds too. Maria has a blog where you can find out more about her and life in the Duffy household. We think you should give it a read. Look what we got......... Finally, the team are being more forthcoming with the information we need to write their player profiles after threats of posts specifically about Wii Zumba so there will be more of those coming to a blog post near you over the coming weeks. The video clip of Darren 'Gandalf, The White Wizard' is going down a storm on YouTube, you could and should view that HERE and leave us a comment to let us know what you think. That's all from me for now, until next time.
