Here Comes the Sun do da do do…

Hay fever has hit the office like a tsunami.  The Flying Kilt, bless him,  has the sneezes and the pink eyes, no not THE pink eye, just sore eyes, bless.  It’s such a debilitating allergy and for some, can last all through the summer and beyond.  Luckily for The Flying Kilt, his will just run […]

The A Team

Wednesdays are the midway point in our working week here, so we are discussing where we are so far with our own individual projects. Head hung in shame,  as still not started my project…but I have a good reason,  honest Guv’nor.   I just cant think what it is right this minute….give me an hour […]

How to make life easy with the right tools

It’s like a ghost town here in the office this morning.  The past 3 weeks with our new BDEs, the office has been filled with their banter, questions, and, just their presence.  There has been at least one of them here at any one time while the others might be out at networking or on […]

On The Move Again!

I think there is a workshop or networking event of some sort going on in the meeting room down the end of the corridor.  There is so much noise!  Loud laughter and talking; they cannot be working! We are very quiet here in our little office, its heads down and get on with it……..until the […]

Squeeky Clean with a sprinkle of Fairy Dust

Crazy tidy up day today; Tinker is in (I should add,  that Tinker is in fact short for Tinker Bell as if you hadn’t guessed it but she likes to drop the Bell bit) and like the whirlwind she is, has come in armed with polish, dusters, air fresheners, bin bags oh and chocolate.  See, […]

To phone or not to phone, that….. is the question!!

Oh how sad is this…. I have just been stopped in my tracks watching the window cleaner. No, not like the one on the adds, topless and the stopping to drink a fizzy drink!   Yes, I know, I don’t get out much.    We are on the first floor, and the window cleaner has a long […]

Brass Monkeys

It’s blooming freezing today.  Heavens, who would have thought it would be this cold in May!  It must be this climate change we are all talking about but don’t believe in; do you believe there is something to worry about?  I do wonder as I recall May of my childhood being warm days with the […]

Pre Presentation Preparation Prevents Perspiration

The Guv’nor’s just walked in with a box of cakes! As if we don’t have enough sugar highs in here already with mars bars, snickers and biscuits! Oh dear, sorry, that sounds so ungrateful bearing in mind there are many bosses who would not dream of doing this. It’s those little things as an employee […]

And what are YOU doing this weekend?

Today is pay day and just around the corner from another Bank Holiday.  We all love a pay day, unless you are so rich it’s just pocket change going into your bank account.  I wished!  The talk in the office today is around what we are going to do at the weekend now we have […]

To Infinity And Beyond

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.  There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.  Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.  Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got annoyed about that because it was Everybody’s job.  Everybody […]
