The driver from UPS delivered a cheque for £2,000,000 today, which was nice! It didn't stop me from buying a ticket for tonight's Euro Millions £160 million rollover, which would come in quite handy, now British Gas has decided to bump its fuel prices.
My daughter didn't believe me at first. "Have you ever seen a cheque for £2,000,000? Well neither have I"
It's now ready to fly and will do somewhere yet to be revealed. I've made a point of cropping the payee's name and the bank account details so I don't give the game away. With Bob Crowe's RMT banner due back in from the Durham Miners Rally tomorrow, which is the same size, I need to make sure I don't get the two mixed-up when I make the flight as that would be rather embarrassing to say the least. I guess you'll read about it when it happens. Anyway, it was nice to have £2,000,000 in my hands for a while at least. We can but dream I suppose!
Meanwhile, a good friend of mine who's just started flying for a small airline ferrying tourists to the exotic holiday island paradise of Bali tells me there's a vacancy for another pilot with the right experience. I wonder if I could make some small digital adjustments to that cheque before it's too late?
