Where a am the noo

Postby ash » Tue Mar 13, 2007 4:44 pm

This Forum is lookin a bit quiet so a thoght a wid tell ye where a am the noo even thogh a didna cum by boat.

Am in Aberdeen.

Actually this is a call to Hazardous to Shipping - Far are ye quinne - I know that she works for the council - but is she involved in housing.

I'm currently babysitting one of the breakout rooms at the Chartered Institute of Housing ( CIH ) conference at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre and wondered if H to S is here.

I've only got 2 x 1 hour sessions per day, and free internet access so it's all a lot more chilled than my usual jobs.

Sorry - a couldna keep up the Doric - a bided 17 yeers in Portsoy - bit a leaved there mair than 35 yeers sien.

Luckily - I'm a technician rather than a delegate - so I just have to put up with the drink - Oh it's a hard life.

Claymore - you sound as though you're an experienced delegate.

Cry from the crowd " Who's that standing next to Shard? "

I worked on the dinner a couple of years ago at the Glasgow Hilton when Bill Clinton was the guest of honour - guys in suits with bulges under their arm everywhere.

Here I am back in Aberdeen, again babysitting a breakout room at the CIH conference.

BM Forum is certainly much busier than it was a year ago. One man's loss is another man's gain.
