23rd April. Not just any old Wednesday. Today is St Georges Day! Those that know me will confirm that I am exceptionally proud to be an Englishman – not just today, but every day!
I didn’t get to celebrate it in style today in the way I usually do, as I was away on my HR Management course – and it wouldn’t be the done thing to turn up in a suit of armour, or trotting up the M5 on a white Charger! Not that I would usually celebrate in quite that style.. draping a flag over my desk is the usual mark of the day, but I couldn’t even do that today. I took heart though in seeing several flags of St George, proudly fluttering in peoples gardens as I drove home this evening.
Fortunately, there were no dragons reported to me so I didn’t get called into action.
