Office Wars

In every office across the country I’m sure there are mini office wars going on. They may be subtle, but they happen. It could be a vendetta against the person who never seems to make the tea but always says ‘Yes’ when asked if they would like one. It could be the older generations within the office giving the newer staff members the crap work to do. It could be the non-smokers resenting all the breaks the smokers get to steadily kill themselves on work time. However in our office its all about the air con.

Now, the blokes love it but the girls, on the whole, hate it. I think the blokes must have extra thick padding to stop the freezing icy blasts of cold air penetrating their skin and chilling them to the bone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not totally against air con in the right situations. When it is roasting hot I do agree with having it on to keep the temperature ambient and comfortable. However when the day is overcast as it is today, I don’t see the reason why open windows wont do the job.

What I do hate about air con is how it blows on you. It’s like being under a very cold fan and on top of that I generally hate feeling air blowing on my skin. It also blows my hair which tickles my face, and my paper which makes working a pain in the arse.

On top of that it’s bad for the environment.

Thanks very much Mr Willis Haviland Carrier, your invention is a constant plague in my working life :-(

M25 rant

I hate the M25 and this weekend I had to spend a whole lot of time on the UK's biggest car park getting back to my parents for the weekend. However what made the journey back even worse was the unbelievable downpour which meant at times I couldnt actually see where the hell I was going. It did make it a little more entertaining if not a little hairy!

We meet at last!

I got to meet my very new cousin this weekend, little Freddie. Not sure if he liked me too much because he did cry when I held him, but that was soon sorted out with a dummy!

What a cutie!

Aaaah pretty Liney!

I have discovered a new game for those tedious hours at work ... it's called "Decorating the Indexers" - hoorah!!! Well, what else are you supposed to do with those useless stickers which come with the annual office wall planner?

Meeting Reuben

Ok, so it has taken me six months to do, but today I met baby Reuben. Despite being sleep deprived Lauren and John seemed exceptionally happy and Reuben is absolutely adorable!
