Day 77

A quiet day with just a short journey from Ripley to Nottingham. I then spent the same amount of time looking for somewhere to stay. This accommodation search most nights is a total hassle. Great respect to BNI who have arranged accommodation for the next two nights in two separate hotels in Long Eaton. It saves such time. Thanks, guys.

No BNI meeting this morning but I have 3 confirmed for this week – Parkside, Two Valleys and Forest. I am looking forward to them all. I have received tremendous support from Frank Flegg and Jason Smith the two local directors. They will be mentioned in despatches to BNI Head Office. Lovely also to hear from so many BNI members who I have met who are now regularly following me, emailing me, tweeting me. Your support is much appreciated.

Also confirmed up with Notts County and Notts Forest for visits to their grounds. Fantastic when I do get the opportunity to confirm in advance. Just turning up at Chesterfield would not have allowed me to get the fantastic support I did. Sadly, sometimes time does just not allow it and/or there is a change in the diary. Perfect world ……….

Got a lovely email from a Derby County fan today. She was the first bride at the Pride Park Stadium ……. precisely one day after the Queen opened it. I’ll be passing her respects tomorrow.
