I don’t know about you but I’m sitting here on tenterhooks (well, not quite) awaiting the birth of the future King or Queen of England.  One thing strikes me.  If Princess Kate is residing at her parent’s home in sunny Berkshire, and starts getting labour pains, isn’t rather unlikely that she will be attending St.Marys Hospital in London?  Isn’t the Royal Berkshire Hospital a better bet?  I could be wrong but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Quote of the Week W/E 19/11/10 November 21, 2010

This week’s quote is fairly obvious and is a simple “I do”.

Well, let’s face it, when you are offered the opportunity to loaf about, be waited on, not have to worry about getting the train or stagnating on the M25 of a morning, dodge people’s phlegm and dandruff on the Underground, worry about losing your job due to the recession or others’ incompetence, inflation eroding one’s pension and savings and touch the occasional leper as recompense, then I’d be jumping at the opportunity to marry Prince William myself.

I suppose everyone will think I’m jaded and callous. Oh well, so be it. I’ll get back to the more mundane topic of auditing next week. Promise.
