    I did some van work for BHF on Friday. Even though I live in St Leonards-on-Sea, we were tasked to the Bournemouth branch 115 miles away. Our first pick up of donated furniture was at Hesketh Close. My surname. Close by was David Road. Both in St Leonard's, Dorset.

    Toronto

    Has anybody gone over for the game? Considering there is a fans night tonight, and free transport to and from the game, it looks as though they are making an effort.

    Eurovision!

    I Love Eurovision. I watched last nights semi final & I will be watching tomorrows, although on Saturday I may miss the final for the first time in 20+ years because I have a friend coming over for a pi** up from London. I don't have the ability to record via Sky, so I am devastated that she chose this weekend to visit.

    No. No big shakes though, I think I have a job working for a Rail agency called On Trak, who supply Staff to Southern, Great Northern and Thameslink for on station staff, checking tickets, or customer service. I was in Greenwich yesterday for a recruitment day, and it seemed to go well, just waiting confirmation and I could even be working on Monday at Hastings Station.

    SWINTON V TOULOUSE FREE ENTRY

    Swinton Lions plan to throw open the gates for FREE at their upcoming home game against Toulouse Olympique on Saturday 28th April (kick-off 3pm). In addition, the Lions will be charging a mere £22 for a quality two-course meal in the superb new corporate facilities at Heywood Road, Sale. In the lead up to the match, the club intends to market the game extensively in the Trafford area in a bid to win over new friends. Swinton Operations Director Steve Wild explained, “We have a tremendously loyal hardcore of support from the Swinton area, but we need to think hard about how we can increase our home gates. Letting everyone in for free is obviously a massive gamble in terms of potential lost revenue, but if we can attract a good crowd, particularly from the Sale and Trafford area, then hopefully they will enjoy the experience and become regulars. “We are also mindful that our regular fans have gone beyond the call of duty over these last few months, and this is a small way of saying thank you for that loyal support. We are mindful that Season Ticket holders might feel disadvantaged by the idea, but we have plans to reward them in a different way on the day. “We also hope that our loyal fans will spread the word amongst their own families and groups of friends, and maybe we can attract new supporters and sponsors, or perhaps re-engage those former fans who have become disaffected over the past few years. “Toulouse Olympique is a name which gives the fixture an international and an exotic feel, so hopefully this will appeal to non-regular Rugby League supporters. The fact that we are playing this fixture on a Saturday should also help the initiative – indeed we have no direct opposition from any other Rugby League games that day, nor indeed from Man United, Man City or Bolton Wanderers – so everyone will be most welcome!” Register on eventbrite to guarantee your entry, and for quicker entry to the ground on the day https://www.eventbrite.com/e/swinton-lions-v-toulouse-olympique-tickets-45194746704 For corporate bookings at only £22 per head, contact steve.wild@swintonlionsrlfc.co.uk

    I was in my local Co-Op at the weekend, and some woman (Obviously from out of St. Leonards) was asking the assistant where their Quinoa was. He looked at her as though she was speaking a foreign language, then asked her what it was. I stepped in and asked her if she was new to the area, and when she replied she was on holiday from S W London, I pointed out where she might get it from. We have a Sainsbury's but not a Waitrose, so I sent her there.

    Job hunting

    2 weeks ago, Esther McVee MP suggested that school children should get part-time jobs to prepare themselves for real work when they leave school. I wrote to her suggesting she shuts her mouth until those of us over-50 have full or part time work, as we have bills to pay, and are not living off the Bank of Mum & Dad. I got a reply this morning suggesting that there are plenty of jobs available for the over 50's who want to work. I have drafted a reply to ask her if that is why I have only had one Interview in 2.5 years.

    My Doctors does not allow you to book an appointment. You have to turn up at 08.15, and request an emergency appointment, thus taking a space from someone who might really need an emergency appointment, so they go to the local A&E instead, and block a trolley from someone else who might also need it.
