Last Saturday I drove to Scotland, spent an hour in a place, then drove back home.
Then late Wednesday I drove down to Hensol, which is west of Cardiff.
And on Friday afternoon I drove back from Hensol to Nottinghamshire.
Although a bit knackered, because I don’t sleep well away from home, both trips were interesting and, in their own way, educational.
More about the Scottish one in due course, if it all happens as planned.
But the Welsh one was an annual company conference.
The conference wound up with a light-hearted moment, a musical pub quiz.
When this was announced I thought I was quids in, obv.
Being a music geek and all.
How wrong I was.
How very wrong.
The focus of the quiz was a sortov mashup of 17 songs across an Ed Sheeran song.
When I heard the words Ed Sheeran my heart sank quicker than than a quickly sinking thing.
But we gave it a go, our little group.
The object of the exercise was to name the songs – and the artists – of all 17 songs that were performed by The Vamps across (mercifully) just a few bars of an Ed Sheeran song.
Give it a go, and let me know – out of a potential score of 34, one point for each artist and one point for each song – how many points you get.
But play the same game that we did.
Blank out the screen, because all songs and artists are listed on this video (they weren’t on the video we saw):
