I’m touched (in more ways than one)
I just wanted to say a quick hello and to say thank you all very very much for all the messages of support I’ve received.
I deliberately didn’t go to Hankley today, as I was expecting the big explosive stuff to be happening, and I knew I couldn’t film it, talk about it etc etc. We were around 15 miles away at Blackheath this afternoon to walk the pooch, and the camera helicopter went over. It’s conceivable that this camera helicopter was nothing to do with Skyfall, but it seems odd that another waspy ‘copter with a big ball camera under its nose would be whizzing around the Surrey countryside on the very day that I’d been told the hole in the wall might come to fruition. I have to say that seeing the helicopter go over and anticipating what would be happening on site did have me gnawing my knuckles in frustration at what I’m no longer able to do.
One thing I do really want to say to anyone who happens to be reading this who is going along to Hankley to watch the filming (a lot of people are, judging by how full the car park has been)…
For heaven’s sake pick up after your dog, and after you’ve picked up, don’t leave the resulting bag hanging in a tree like some macabre christmas decoration. Do you think the poo fairy is going to come along and take it away for you?
Phew, glad I got that off my chest. There were about 30 bags of dog waste left lying around the heath last weekend. What on earth is wrong with people?
I’m still trying to figure out what, if anything, I’ve done wrong or illegally, and what I can still blog about. Bear with me, and in the meantime, here’s a selection from my Fantastic Fungi page. Noone at Eon productions can object to magical mushrooms, surely?
