New Video plus a Certificate

I've just uploaded a new video which I'll come to, but first I'll just mention the certificate...


I wasn't going to mention this in my blog, because it's a little bit too much of blowing my own trumpet even for me, but thinking about it I realised that as a everyday life blogger it's hard enough to come up with stuff to blog about without limiting myself even more.

So yes, I was fortunate enough to win an award Friday night, and I am really pleased, especially with it being from the G4C awards - G4C is something that I've been a supporter of for many years, if you're not familiar with it it's a construction best practice initiative looking to help those new entrants to the construction industry gain the skills and knowledge needed to become the future leaders of the industry.  It's a great cause, and more can be found out about it at www.g4c.org.uk

I'm also ecstatic to report that my construction experience is expanding, because today I replaced the handle on the kitchen window after the old one snapped, and didn't take 2 minutes to do.  Next I'll be laying bricks and learning what "mastic" is.

And in other news, I have just uploaded a video, if for no other reason than to emphasise my amateurness, I've done a remake of "Oh Carolina" by Shaggy.  It's called "Oh Banana" and discusses my love for the yellow fruit.  Enjoy.

  2. I wish I had a award. Curse you, Mike Raven, curse you.

    Not really, congratulations. On the award, and the window handle, and the new video.

  3. Congratulations on the award which you neglected to mention was given to you in my home city (you're welcome). I don't think I every won an award unless you count a paper aeroplane making contest I came second in whilst on holiday in ingoldmells when I was 12.

    1. My apologies! Yes, Sheffield City Hall was a really good venue, I went there for an awards dinner a few years back but it was a little overcrowded, this time it was just reasonably full which was nice. Ingoldmells eh, my mother (ravenmagical.blogspot.com) is from Lincolnshire and very familiar with the area. For the record, I'm fairly rubbish at making paper aeroplanes - although I'm surprised at how many people are even worse than me!
