Monday morning greetings from London W10, I hope you are well and have finally dried out from the torrential rain on Saturday. I guess the sunny start on Sunday morning helped.
Well done to South Africa winning The Rugby World Cup, well done to Japan for staging what seemed to be via the TV an amazingly successful Rugby World Cup a good test run for The Olympics 2020 and finally well done to the England Rugby team who worked so hard to get to the final and who perhaps peaked too early by beating The All Blacks, that result was almost but only almost as good as lifting the World Cup for The England team. Finally well done to Wales
I spoke to Shaun Blake and Brad Glenn of The Inside Edge Southern Africa the DMC MM and Company have been representing for twenty years, to say the guys were delighted with the result for them and for the entire country of South Africa would be an understatement they delighted, pleased, happy and ecstatic all rolled into one and hey so should be.
It's just six weeks to go till the end of the year holiday, I refuse to write that word until at least after Guy Fawkes night but for me November and the first two weeks of December will disappear, the diary is almost full with FAM trips, site inspections, sales calls and client dinners which is great.
Last week I had a great few day up in Leeds and Manchester such lovely clients we have up there, actually to be honest with you I always enjoy going to the north of England, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool nice people live there.
This week is World Travel Market I shall be there on Monday, I have got a few clients to see, it’s always a good show I go on the first day when the general public aren’t permitted in, it’s easy to get around and get a lot done in a short space of time.
This weekend coming I’m going to Malta to meet with the Mi Malta team Erika, Douglas, Claudia, Helga and co. I checked the weather for next week, the forecast is 22 degrees, dry, warm and sunny, got to love that.
