Au Revoir ... and Goodbye

So it's au revoir to L, who went on maternity yesterday. We started at the same time last September. How will I cope without her? She is my Key Stage 1 and Literacy bible!! Good job I have her email address ;-)

And it's goodbye to Raymond Baxter*. I don't really associate him with Tomorrow's World; to me he was, and always will be, the voice of Farnborough Air Show. What a lovely voice he had. I didn't realise until today that he'd been a Spitfire pilot in WWII.

*I can hear A now,on the other side of the Atlantic: "I didn't realise he was still alive..."

Surely not, must be his brother, Raymond Baxter died years ago!

Mayber that should be the subject of a future post - the deaths of people who we already thought were dead...

Yay! I am famous! I get to appear on a blog! I have no doubts that you will cope fine Nic! However, I would love an e-mail from time to time... just to keep my brain active and feel as though I am useful! I fear the 10 weeks of maternity leave before Baby arrives will leave me going insane! L
