Yes, I am feeling a bit flat.
Actually,that is not true.
I wish I WAS feeling flat.
However, I am feeling bulgy and FAT.
Flat would be good.
My staff have nothing to do.
I have never known work to be so quiet at this time of the year,
Usually,we are going nuts trying to get everything done before shutdown.
Not this year.
I have a lot of work to do.
Is there something wrong with that picture?
My staff are sitting around doing nothing and I am busy.
Do you know how hard it is to be working away when everyone else is doing nothing?
Ok…Have given them all count sheets to do.
Now I feel better.
I am evil.
Mex and I went out to dinner last night.
A local place.
It was very nice.
And the blue writing is back!
We were discussing Xmas and decided it would be a quiet one with just the two of us.
Today younger son phoned and said we can join them if we like.
I would be quite happy to have a really quiet day but it will probably be my last Christmas with my kids(some of them) so maybe I had better make the effort.
We had a firedrill this morning.
The only problem is we can’t hear the alarm.
Fortunately we have a long wall of windows looking onto the factory.
My staff noticed everyone leaving.
I have to don a bright jacket and do a roll call outside.
I want to tell you….if there is ever a REAL fire…I am grabbing my handbag and my carkeys and I am am rescuing my little yellow car.
It can’t get out on it’s own.
And I am fond of the thing.
Oh yes, my camera comes too.
The beach was glorious this morning.
I know I keep saying that but it IS true.
I got chatting to one of the locals.
About cancer and arthritis and heart disease.
You know, all that cheerful stuff.
He informed me that milk is one of the worst things we can drink.
Apparently, it encourages the cancer cells we all have.
I didn’t want to know that.
I like milk.
Now I will have to have wine on my corn flakes!
Now that I have all my staff beavering away I guess I should work too.
Oh yes….I leave for Swaziland on the 16th and come back on the 23rd.
I reckon I had better do my Christmas shopping next week.
That will be a first for me.
Or….I can just give everyone the little bottles of shower gel and shampoo.
