Yesterday Jessica opened her presnets from her Mum and Dad on her 2nd Christmas. Today (Boxing day) we are going over to Darwen to get the rest of the family's gift. Jessica is worried that Grandma will not like her present but I have told Jessica not to worry.
I have posted photos online of Jessica opening her presents,

First I was told that My job here at BBC Radio Humberside was safe. I will not be made redundent and I will carry on beeing a programs BJ however I had two applications in for attachments.
On Monday I went to BBC Radio Lancashire in Blackburn to be interviewed by Ben Thomson and Liam McCarthy for a bus BJ/Driver to travel around the UK.
On Friday I had an interview for BBC Radio York. They are getting a bus and needed a Bus driver/BA.
Luckly I got the first job so I pulled out of the Radio York job. I will take up my new role on April the 7th 2008 and it will last for at least a year. I will travel around the UK from one radio station to another promoting the BBC and carring on the work of the BBC Buses.
When my attchment ends I will come back to BBC Radio Humberside and carrie on working.
The last few months have been hard as I didn't know what I was going to do, now I can go on attachment knowing I am safe in the BBC.
The goal moves Rovers into 7th place in the league and onto the race for a UEFA cup spot. Well Done Matty.

Well it's a start. The BBC and the Joint unions have started to agree. This May safeguard my job, safeguard the quality of BBC output and safeguard trust in a BBC which is being lead from one disaster to another. (Blue Peter ect.)
The BBC had a very bad 2007 with trust in the corperation at an all time low. If strike action is taken by the unions this is only hurt the cooperation in the long term.
It's time for Mark Thomson and the BBC Trust to stand up and be counted. Thanks for listening Mark now act. Your cooperation is hurting and staff moral is at a 20 year time low. We where , not so long ago, the most creative organization in the world. Lets get back there and let the broadcasters broadcast.
I fear that it is too late for the Buses, however you can save the open centers and keep the hard earned respect of our audiences.
For more information on the union/BBC talks look at these websites.

Tomorrow the votes will be counted in for Strike action in the BBC. Jobs have already been cut and people have started to lose the UPA. With Pensions and more jobs under threat the BBC is asking itself where does it go from here.
On Friady this week I will be taking our BBC Bus over to BBC Manchester for Scrappimg. This was one way that the BBC met the audence now we are back in the ivory towers is Cities across the UK.
Hope for a Yes vote for Strike action and hope that job cuts in the BBC are not made in Broadcast areas. Can we run a radio or TV station with less staff? Well Yes, but would it be worth watching or lisening to? NO!
As you pay the licesnce fee, you can demand quaity in the broadcast that you pay for.

First it was the UEFA Cup, Then the League Cup. Today Blackburn Rovers crashed out of the FA Cup at the first attempt. 3 years on the row they got to the semis but this year we will be watching the rest go on to Wemberley.
With League form not as good as can be the old addage, "Lets Consentrate on the League" is a hope. Now an Automatic UEFA cup spot in the league is what we must get to to say we have had a good season.
