the north face footwear Heart Gloucestershire
Monday 23rd March Long Live The King.
is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this sun of York. (By the way Shakespeare was way ahead of his time York, like Tewkesbury, has a big church and also floods)
A polite clap all round for those who spotted that was a very famous line from Richard the Third (or as the kids text 3 1s It been a fun couple of years since ol R3 had his bits and bobs dug up in a car park in Leicester and lets face facts, for those of us following the cherry and whites year in and year out there been a few times we wished we could curl up and die in Leicester too.
So on Sunday our Dickie (ex Duke of Gloucester) finally got a burial fit for a king. Perhaps not surprisingly there was an almighty to do as to where his final resting place should be. Leicester (Bosworth) were always the favourites but York and London all chirped in with their claims to have him laid to rest in their respective areas. In truth Gloucestershire fancied it for a while but it was never really in the serious running.
Not really a bad thing either as someone somewhere finally has to be summoned to court over 3 resting place of over 500 years An NCP Car Park in Leicester (this is no joke). Now anyone who ever had a run in with our friends with pricey parking fees knows they want their because technically Richy boy was property without paying for a fair old while.500 years
It not often the county council get praise but well done lads and lasses for not getting too deep into this one. You see, with a basic bit of maths, you can easily see Dickie unscheduled stop over is quite expensive, really expensive.
Let assume the stay over was exactly 500 years, that 26,000 weeks. Can you imagine that conversation? we pay weekly about How about we spot you 3 tries every Gloucester v Leicester game? so all in all Leicester is very welcome to King Richard.
I catch you weekdays from 6am.
Clever office managers all around Gloucestershire are already well ahead of the game. Why? Well because we embarked on our biggest giveaway ever and to be fair as the station that regularly dishes out with our competition on Heart we know a thing or two about big giveaways. The basic idea is simple (which is good because so am i) We taken 100 consecutive days. We giving away four really great prizes each day and we simply saying if you win one of the four daily prizes you go into a draw on day 100 to then win . a bit like the gift that keeps on giving (except it a lot better than the sandwich toaster you been trying to offload on unsuspecting in laws etc each Christmas) The initial very cool prize, followed up by an even cooler hit of a life changing cash!
Now you better get your skates on as we been playing Heart 100 Happy Days for 37 days including today,
so the good news is you still got about two thirds of the game run time left to play.
Some of the daily prizes we already given away include
to see One Direction (you be parent of the year if you won them)
A VIP salon experience with hairdresser Nicky Clarke
Tickets to any day at any venue of this years Ashes tests in the cricket
Tickets to Ladies Day at Cheltenham
A weekend for 2 to Rome
So remember. Well 5 actually if you include the steering wheel (which on this car I’m led to believe is an optional extra). Doors and lights are also included.
Now for those of you who suffer Heart breakfast regularly (sorry listener) then you know I’m not a man for details, so my long suffering sister Yvonne picks up the reigns for me there. She is a fully qualified accountant. She so good in fact that she retired at the age of 40 after selling her firm for Yvonne is the brains of our family. I left the details, finance stuff etc etc to her and just ponied up the dough Then sat back, relaxed and spent the whole of last Thursday waiting for my new motor to be delivered. Eventually I called the dealership it was coming from One in the North West. A very nice lady informed me that I shouldn worry and that the lovely delivery man was on his way Happy days! 30 mins turned into an hour which turned into 90 mins and still no sign of my car.
Trying not to sound like a total idiot I rang the dealership again. The polite lady apologised, said there been an accident on the motorway and was (according to his sat nav) 13 minutes away! Happy days!
13 minutes turned into 20 and that turned into an hour. It was 5.25pm and this time i called the dealership intent of having it out with them. Id spent all day since 11am inside at home waiting for the b car and i was getting might hacked off. di dee I said (or words to that effect) my car? minutes later Yvonne called. Loch Lomond, Scotland
Fiddle di dee.(or words to that effect)
Monday 16th February The Oscars fever, Oscars this, Oscars that and Oscars the other. Blah blah blah.
We find out Sunday night/Monday morning our time who won what. Will Eddie Redmayne get his gong for a fantastic portrayal of Stephen Hawking or will Mr Cumberbatch pick up first prize for The Imitation Game?
Either way goes home empty handed as they say in all the best game shows and this years nominees will end up taking home a goodie bag even if they don take home a gold statue. The goodie bag has become quite the tradition. It packed with all the latest Hollywood A List must haves and in true Tinsletown fashion the nominees of 2015 will be walking home with a bag that contains worth of toys Go read that last line again. It no typo. If you get a nomination in one of the top 7 or 8 major awards (best actor/actress/director/film etc) you get a bag with worth of cool stuff inside. Try telling Hollywood there a recession on!
