Well, guys. A bit of breaking news for you.... my work burned down at the weekend. Crazy, hey? Well, the building is still standing, but the inside is completely gutted by fire and smoke. It's such a shame. I can only compare it to a school going up in flames. So much work and equipment, all gone. Vandals set fire to the bins at the back of the building in the middle of Friday night and it quickly spread inside, melting a metal door.
The building is unsafe, and nothing could be salvaged. No computer, no folders, nothing. Because of the organisation we are, we're desperately trying to find suitable premises for us to take the clients. It'll be months before we can go back to Northside. All our client's programmes that we follow everyday are gone, and even the backups on the computer! Its going to be a crazy time coming up. At least the centre was shut next week for scheduled holidays and I'm going away! We've had the local paper out and done radio broadcasts locally to see if anyone can help, as we are a non-profit organisation for the disabled. Wondered if the Kidderminster Shuttle would be interested!!!! Ha ha!
Over the weekend, Manly Sea Eagles the local rugby league team reached the grand finals and that will take place next Sun. Saturday was a big night with loads of people out to watch the match. A friend from home (Paul) came over to visit me, which was nice. As Manly won on Sat, I celebrated! And then England won the rugby, so I celebrated again. Hopefully will be able to celebrate next Sunday. I have a flight at 7 am on Monday morning to the Gold Coast though! Thats' all for now. I'll put up a few of the photos I took at work on Saturday, so you can see the devastation.
