    Myself and BassBoneShep have just returned from a lovely 2 week break in the Vendee region of France (today is the first day back at work and this morning has been very painful!).

    Anyway last week as we were wandering around one of the markets we heared the sound of brass instruments being played. On investigation we discovered two blokes busking outside one of the cafes one playing Bass and other other Euph.

    Anyway to cut a long story short we discovered that the bass player was from Desford and the Euph from Yorkshire Imps and they had both just finished at the RNCM(I think).

    I don't know if either of them are tMPers but I would just like to say that they sounded great and it was quite a novel thing to see and I hope they made plenty of money.

    A few years ago now when I was about 7 or 8 I was staying in a hotel in France and I saw these twins from my year at school, they lived in my village, and they were staying in the same hotel as me I opened the door of the lift and they were standing in front of me! They're still in my form at college! Just can't get rid of them!

    Last year, one of my colleagues walked into her hotel only to find that the headmaster was also staying there - Bondi Beach, no less!
  7. Last time we went to the Eurotunnel my deputy head was there with a trolley full of wine. He turned round and had this huge conversation with my mum and dad. I quickly walked away! :oops:

    not seen but heard

    not so much seen but heard on holiday:

    Just back from a cruise on the Disney Magic - the first time the ships horn went off did make me laugh - it plays the first 7 notes of "When you wish upon a star". Particularly amusing when we met another cruise ship who decided to start a ships horn battle - they had no answer to that!

    A few years ago we were in a small village in Greece (can't remember which one) and who should we see on the beach but two of the people who used to teach us and the rest of their family. Very small world!
