‘The 5ive’ do Lunch

Well, here we are, I’m in my favourite city – London – and meeting with ‘The 5ive’ for Lunch. We’re ‘The 5ive’ because there are 7 of us (I know! Don’t ask, it’s complicated! 😉) who met and collaborated on a training project back in 1999. We’ve met semi-regularly ever since – and just to …

Trainers’ Weekend Away (2018)

It’s that time of year again where a group of us Trainers (‘the 5ive’, because there’s 7 of us – don’t ask!) who worked together on the BA Project back in 1999 get together for a weekend of celebration. This year, there’s five of us – Antoinette, Angela, Philip and me – with June joining …

Côte Tales

Tonight was the annual Christmas get-together of ‘The 5ive’ – the group of us ex-self employed Trainers who all worked together on the BA project back in 1999! We’ve managed to keep up these get-togethers for over 15 years now – and we haven’t changed a bit! We weren’t up to full strength tonight in …

Three 5ives

A bit of a rush today as I finished the Class at 3pm, drove over to Bedford and headed for the Capital. The reason? The semi regular get-together members of ‘The 5ive’ – our informal gathering for those of us who worked with BA ‘back in the day’ on their SMA project. Tonight, we were …

Venue of choice tonight was Strada in Great Queens Street, close to Holborn Tube.  Before the get-together I met up with Angela outside the London Palladium beforehand (Scooby-Doo? Boy, this place has …

5ive do Pizza

It was down to London for me this afternoon, for my semi-regular meet-up with Trainers past-and-present, Angela, Antoinette, Carey, June, and Rick. Almost a full-house then with only Philip not being able to make it this time aorund. We call ourselves ‘The 5ive’, because there’s seven of us (yep, I know… and I’m supposed to …

5ive go to… Liverpool

It’s that time of year, when a few of us Trainers get together for a weekend of culture, food, drink and whatever else comes our way! In previous years we’d been to Stratford-upon-Avon (2012), Bath (2013) and Birmingham (2014). This year it’s Liverpool and a ‘Staycity Serviced Apartment’. Coming along for the experience this time around …

5ive’s Indian Summer

‘5ive’ is the name we gave ourselves – a group of Trainers from ‘back in the day’ when we all did work for British Airways, and dinosaurs walked the Earth. There were originally FIVE of us (hence the name), but now we are SEVEN (don’t ask!). We’ve kept in regular touch for over 10 years …
