Oh My Giddy Aunt!!!!
This is the funniest thing ever!!!!
I had suggested to the ladies at work that they all have a little party
and enjoy the new adventure our little company is about to embark on. It was Debby’s birthday today too, and she had already got the doughnuts, so I said, I said, have a party! Get some lemonade!
I had also asked my Mum and Dad to join us, because they are on Virgin and Mum was seriously stressing that she might miss the Midday launch.
So get this!
My good man Jim called me just now,
and said he had dropped some photos into my blog,
so that I could see how the Clarity Crew celebrated
the Hochanda launch back at Clarity Towers,
together with myself and all up at the studios,
And this is what I found...
I am so chuffed, I can’t tell you.
My lovely brother came along to join in,
Now watch what they did!!
Just when I was wishing I had been there...
Look at the spread they put on!!!
There’s Dad in the background!
Claire, Jim’s Mum - she who makes all the stencils.
And Jayne, she who is in charge of all things TV dispatch.
And this one made me cry.
Just an overwhelming sense of pride.
There’s Dave too.
Young Steve at the front; he who is in charge of all retail picking and Amazon.
Ian at the front, who is in charge of all things to do with trade shop accounts
Lovely Katie! It’s so nice to have her back for a while.
She’s a young actress who works with us on stencils in between acting jobs.
And lovely Dotty.
Our youngest Clarity teamie.
Remember Annie, our young Mum who designs all the fantastic stencils?
Well she works from home, so she can be a mum too.
A proper stay at home mum.
I was so chuffed to see they came to the party.
It’s a good hour away.
JIM HAD A JOB AND A HALF TRYING TO GET ONLINE STREAMING!!!
He shot into town and got an aeriel,
so they could watch on freeview!!!
This looks bloody spooky, doesn’t it!!!
I bet the head masks were Jayne’s idea !!!
I do love that woman.
Here’s Jim holding the aerial up outside.
Now THAT’s what I call dedication.
Ahh, there’s Mum! I wondered where she was!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how proud and happy and chuffed
That has to be one of the best surprises ever.
That’ll teach me to ask Jim to get some photos of the staff for the website!!!
And as for the launch at Hochanda,
it was amazing.
What another excellent bunch of people.
Sure there were some glitches and technical hitches.
Tense nervous headache??
You aren’t kidding.
Christ! They launched a TV Channel !!!!!
Unless you were in the building
you will never understand how much is involved.
It was amazing.
And so what if the sound was iffy,
or the plug was in vision,
or the online streaming took an hour to fix?
My lot seemed to cope with it!!!
Onwards and upwards with vigour.
I’m a very, very lucky woman.
Do me a big favour.
Go on the Hochanda Facebook Page and give them a pat on the back. They need one, and they certainly deserve one. xxx
love and hugs,
PS HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBBY!!!!!!
