Meeting No.7 – Transport

QUIMS Meeting 5th September 2008: Transport

Roger played host to the latest quims meeting with the subject being Transport. It was perhaps a sign of the times that the only thing he had to play music on was an iPod docking station meaning we had to bring our tunes on iPods, which actually worked really well enabling us to get more tunes in than ever before. Sat around the kitchen table eating chips and dip, olives, cheese and some rather nice honey glazed sausages, we decided to start by each person having to pick a different form of transport…………..
