Our end of year Christmas concert was unusual. Normally there are several big, rock numbers; not this time. It was all very laid back and polite. Although, I did a Foo Fighters medley of 3 numbers (The Pretender, Times like These and The best of you) with some of the guys; I felt like I had to apologise for our incongruous interruption.
It was all a little tame for my taste. The No. 1 Governor did a song by The Script and one of the Managers did an Amy Winehouse number. It all helps to promote a more harmonious and safer environment.
This week we unexpectedly got a bonus – E4 was added; although, I think it was a sweetener as the wages are about to be changed and some guys will be getting paid less; the lazy ones.
Be happy, be safe.
