Queuing, Sitcoms and Noddy Holder's Royalty Cheque

It's Christmaaaaaaaas!

 
 



So today, whilst driving to the office, I was reminded that it's Christmas time. Partly by the snow and partly by Slade blasting out 'Merry Christmas Everybody' on the jolly old wireless ...

I'd feel happier about standing in a queue if I got a royalty cheque like Noddy Holder's each year.

I'd feel happier about standing in a queue if I got a royalty cheque like Noddy Holder's each year.

It's a song that I quite like with its reminders of far-off days of school and friends not seen for years and all that, but also a reminder that you too can get a royalty cheque in every year for around half a million if you write a very popular song.

As I trog off to the post office, laden with parcels of magic stuff to send out, and stand in the queue for hours on end, fuming silently, I often wish I'd written a song like that.

"However, I haven't, so one must push on to keep the old cash coming in."

But I am still writing my sitcom and if that goes anywhere, I shall make a bit of cash ... I'm developing it so that it can run and run and run. Then go into the repeats on the likes of Dave and the royalty cheques will come dropping through the letterbox, just like they do through Noddy Holder's letterbox.

But until then, I stand in the post office queue and smile wanly. Of course, if I did get the sitcom commissioned I'd still run the magic website and all of that. It's just I'd feel happier about standing in a queue.

Next week is the last blog before Christmas, and I shall give you a rundown of the shows I'm in next year, which include the Vicar Of Dibley locally and Hancock's Half Hour which will hopefully be touring

Until next time ...
