    I'm a World Record Breaker!

    ....well, sort of!

    I was having a ridiculously stressful and busy time at work last week but when one of our directors came over to ask for my expert drawing help I felt I couldn't really let him down.

    The mission: To break the World Record for the tallest sugar cube tower. This task was to be carried out by BBC Radio Solent (not a contractor that we're used to woring with, but very good non the less!) with the help of Ben, our section director.

    To ensure the tower would be structurally sound, local Engineering consultants Gifford put together a plan which was closely followed.
    My involvement was very minimal but my drawing made it onto the BBC Solent website:

    I'm just bloody pissed off I didn't put my name on it!

    Yeah I should've removed the path really - mind you, I didn't realise anyone other than him and the guy who built it would see it. Usually the path includes the job ref and name but I just dumped it on his computer rather than set up a new folder.
