Amazing what you can do with some marbles, magnets, elastic bands and a bit of mdf.

WBMMT: I somehow managed to mishear 'shout' as 'change' due to my colleague's thick Brummie accent. Or Black Country, whatever the hell it is.

It's only half built. But yep. That's the Millennium Falcon in Donegal. If I wasn't busy this weekend I'd be getting the bus out there and try to sneak on set.

Sounds about right. She must be some kinda yamyam.

Sadly, nice as she is, she's doing some training with me from Monday and I'm told there'll be a steep learning curve. I'm not too confident in her teaching style, sits way too close to you smooshing up against you (bear in mind she's late 50s at least and a smoker) and she seems incapable of moderating her indoor voice so any mistake will be this blurted "YI DOIN EET WRONG-uh" kinda thing. Just hoping that I don't lose patience and that my good performance milestones to date will speak louder.

Seem to think that we had one of these years ago.

Anyway, what has blown my mind is the general overall lack of whinging about the bookings so far this year!

The lack of whinging is down to the bands been more.'old skool' Bloodstock types. Facebook, however, apears to have more whinging than normal, probably for the very same reason!
