Yesterday, for a Monday, I felt remarkably wide awake. I seemed to go through most of the day feeling surprised at how awake I was. Clearly a rare even but very welcome.
It was a good job I was on reasonable form yesterday as the chap who has a bit of a thing for me called me over to his desk and produced a large item for me to look at – a huge marrow. It’s probably about two feet long. It’s not often that you get to see one of those in the office. Later on in the day he came over to speak to me, but he has this somewhat annoying habit of leaning on the back of my chair so that it tips backwards – and therefore me as well. I had to resist the urge to tell him to get off my chair, but did mange to free myself by putting my weight on the front of the chair. It felt like someone invading my personal space, something he does quite often, and he hasn’t even given me any cake recently. I think I am moving desks at some point and no-one will be able to walk up behind me. I think I will be glad when that day arrives.
If you’re looking for some summertime reading then this might help you to get ahead at work. I think it might take a bit more than that for me, but if it could work for David Cameron then it could potentially work for anyone surely?
Oh and after work yesterday I went in search of this. Not only is it a guide to mammals, but also their footprints and droppings. Anyway, if you happen to know anywhere that I might be able to go and pick it up in person before the weekend then that would be marvellous. I won’t hold by breath on that one though.
