Colleagues and Friends... past, present and future?

Posted on 27 March, 2016 at 0:50

I have been called many things over the years, and latterly termed a Dull Man but its always been an issue what people think about me. I think we all want to be liked in some ways although I suppose some really don't care, but truth be known, it does matter to me what people think about me. I have never been one for having loads and loads of friends and going out with mates, or even been a party person, but a number of people mainly through work and Uni, have been with me for a long time. The new book out in June is dedicated to many of them who have shared work adventures and others beyon work. These are a few of them from the Boro..... such great times 

Dr Sue Antrobus - one of the most dynamic people I have worked with - Middlesbrough's former Wildspace Officer, now going great guns at Tees Valley Wildlife Trust


Dave Hodgson - former Principal Engineer at Middlesbrough - now a big wig at East Durham Homes


Eddie Jones - Middlesbrough's Mr Parks - I had the pleasure of working with him but probably best I never knew what he was up to!


Lis Airey - still saving trees in Co Durham


Mr. Richard Buckley and Emily Barrett - never knew what they got up to when my back was turned - back row as usual causing bother but both amazing at what they did. I think Richard is the only survivor but doing sporty stuff now, and as for Em... super mum after taking Staff Wildlife trust by storm. Stick collecting expert and Hobbycraft regular 


Tony Duggan -  best boss I ever had pictured with the gorgeous Susannah Clarke - Opera Singer


Geoff and Dick - dodgy dudes indeed


Andy White - let me build the biggest skate park ever


Jim Moody - one of the kindest colleagues I ever had


Sue Houghton - my first Boro boss - so reminds me of my current Watford boss


Mr Mackem - Alan Lawson - one of my fave people and funniest guy I have worked with


Matthew Smartt - always wondered what he was constantly smiling about


Peter Small - a fabulous fella who loves his ale


Pherenice Worsey Buck - one of the happiest people who I have worked with and now doing wonderful deeds in Bromley


Myself and Stuart Johnston - awards ceremony for Albert Park



Emma Watton - bloody lunatic - nuff said
