Many Relocations and this Friday's Shirt Result


Dear reader, you know how much I endure enjoy  people moving into my house unexpectedly. Think back to the arrival of the yogurt churner extraordinaire and his habitation of our house whilst we were out to lunch.  He is still with us I add. 

Well, dear reader, on Sunday I awoke to find two more had moved in under the cover of darkness.  The Online Shopping Genius' old bedroom was now  occupied,  yet  it hadn't been when we went to bed Saturday night.  It appeared that the Online Shopping Genius and Automotive Engineer boyfriend are staying for a few days weeks months. 

So are their cars! 




On the subject of relocation, I had a bit of a brainwave a week or so ago.  I decided to move members of my team.  The aim being to snuggle them in closer to me.  We have arctic air conditioning and short of taking a hammer to it I could think of no other solutions to keeping warm. 




One team member objected to the move and went on immediate vacation.  Another was so taken with the idea he put the application into the facilities department himself.  He did a darn good job as I wasn't even required to sign it off.  

The move took place and I can tell you,  dear reader, it's quite a novelty sitting next to a woman.  I found that out in the first five minutes.  Petra opened her relocated set of drawers and showed me her tablets, tea and, just  in case I needed it, where to find a spare voucher for having my eyebrows threaded. I was stupified, dear reader,  and a spreadsheet didn't get opened for a good five minutes whilst I recovered. I then had to make myself a cup of her proffered caramelised apple green tea. 








Talking of the office, last Friday one of our male colleagues left.  His gift from the team was a blue shirt, just in case he didn't have enough. 

Friday's clothing challenge in the office for the men was checked shirts.  Result, one managed to depart from blue and and one interpreted check as stripes.

  3. Sitting next to a woman means that there are (usually) emergency chocolate stores too...

  5. Ah, the famous blue shirt. I get that reference now.

    No one's ever unexpectedly moved into my house, mostly because I have 3 different locks, and only I have the keys.
