First of all, the British tradition of The Eddie. While driving to Barnsley last weekend I saw lots of Eddies.
What's an Eddie?
Yep, it's a lorry. Actually, it's a whole fleet of them, owned by the inimitable Eddie Stobart. Mr Stobart has extremely high expectations of his drivers; they all wear uniforms, are expected to behave impeccably (no trucker behaviour!), and each lorry has a unique name. Over the weekend I saw Caitlin Amanda and Sophia Jane. We even have 'Eddie-Spotters', like trainspotters but spotting lorries.
More trucking firms should be like Stobart.
Enough about trucks. Now a bit of shameless pimping.
My precious Mysterious Lady is holding the first Blog Emmys! I have my dress all ready....
and, of course, there will be pink champagne.......
so I'm all ready for the BlogEmmys.Speaking of Emmys, you would have had to have been living under a rock lately not to have known that my blogbuddy Wendy won a competition to go to LA and see the Emmys. While there, she visited our mutual sweetie, Naomi. Then I got an email with a 'virtual pressie' ...
she said 'I took these especially for you in LA' - wow, she travelled half way round the world and thought to get me a picture of this -
and found me a look-alike.....apparently, JD was busy that day!
Ain't friends fantastic??
