Award winning

A couple of weeks ago  I submitted the winning entry for a Caption Competition in The House Magazine.   The picture showed Michael Fallon, recently appointed to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills in order – according to some commentators – to keep an eye on Vince Cable.  The photograph showed him stood behind a large iron gate and reaching through to the lock.  My winning caption was: ‘Okay, Vince, what have you done with the keys?’ 

I know my success will be greatly welcomed by my colleagues.   Naturally, they are happy to bask in my success, though I suppose it is possible it also has something to do with the fact that the prize is a bottle of champagne.  I don’t drink.   A a result of being given bottles of wine for giving talks and winning awards like this, the number of bottles of wine and champagne I have in my cupboard is in double figures. 

I am always pleasantly surprised by how many of my colleagues like to come along to the various anniversary celebrations I organise.
