Be The Big Brother Watching Yourself!

Good morning Kent!  I love being here in the heart of Kent, surrounded by the diversity that it offers.  From open fields and rolling landscapes to city centres and rural villages, from hidden gems down leafy country lanes to motorways and easy access to the M25, the biggest carpark in the world! I think we […]

Up Up And Away

Our new offices are so distracting.  We are now in the penthouse suite of the Innovations Centre. I knew one day I would be in a penthouse suite.  Just didn’t quite envisage it like this, an office!  But hey, beggars can’t be choosers, a penthouse is a penthouse. So, with the penthouse position and the […]

VOIP VOIP what the bleep is VOIP?

The sun is shining, the Snickers (Marathons to you and me)  are getting hard in the fridge, it must be coffee time.   Mini-Him is yawning, sniffing, coughing, I think man-flu is on its way.  But never one to be fooled by the apparent weakness of a man with potential man flu, Mini-Him has still been […]

No Excuses!!

Oh dear, the Guv’nor is not a happy man today! In all the time, I have worked for him, I have never seen him annoyed.   Someone made an appointment to come and see us and did not turn up or, even, phone to say they were not going to make it.  For most of us, […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
