4 Bridesmaids, 2 Sunshiners and 1 Happy Day

Posted on: August 30th, 2013 by Drew No Comments


Please forgive me if this blogs not up to much, it’s been a big weekend.  For those of you unacquainted with the romantic lives of the Sunshiners, 2 of our best (don’t tell them I said that!) tied the knot this weekend, Vera and Domingo, they met over a tin of shoe polish and love Cherry Blossomed (sorry) in an instant.

The service was held in the Lake District and reception in Windermere.  A great deal of drinking was done and most will be nursing a hangover.

I am writing this over breakfast overlooking Lake Windermere and contemplating the long journey home.  You maybe wondering about my gift?  I let them have a half day off for their honeymoon!  I’m full of heart!










Summer Lovin’ in the City

It’s that time of year when the birds are singing and the bees are getting busy, yet everything for us humans seems to grind to a halt – holiday season.

We are of course carrying on our office shoeshine service visits as normal, a few Sunshiners are going away, but replacements have been found.  We have a select few who do exhibition shoeshine, we just move them across to office shoeshine, (there are no exhibition shoeshine  this time of year)  It’s a bit of a juggling act!

As for me, I am off to Vietnam for 3 weeks, partly for a holiday and also to foster some links with a charity over there (does the work never end?)  Just keeping my fingers crossed that things don’t go crazy over here while I’m away, not much can be done from the jungle.

In my absence I expect you all not to let your standards slip, no flip flops and that includes you DVB Bank!


See you in late August time
