We were off again to London again yesterday. The woman in the ticket office at Whitstable Station always asks where we are going as she said she loves our fascinating life.
We were travelling to, As I thought, a meeting at Portcullis House Westminster.
I never knew there was over the Westminster Underground Station such a place. I have never looked up as I’m rushing across the road to Big Ben.
We had arrived at security early so Ray was able to walk around and look at all the art on the walls.
Everyone arrived and the it was mentioned they were so pleased I had come and looking forward to my talk. MT TALK!! no one had mentioned that fact. I cant believe that I was able to tell it from memory and it was far more friendly with me not reading from notes.
I now know that with the new presentation Ray has worked out for me it is going to work so much better.
I spoke about my article on my Dear friend Tess and the Brent Report and Gill Reed that had spoken of the report that fired me up was there listening to me.
I was asked far more questions than normal and I really enjoyed taking part.
We carried on discussing all the problems of Asbestos In Schools and how we can get through to parents without causing alarm. Its not easy but it must be done so here is our contribution.
Children are good at taking in these warnings as I sad like the stop smoking. So many children told their parents off for smoking and that was great as the figures have gone down.
