VF employees are forever ignoring pleas not to park on the main road in front of the building. Yesterday, a lorry ploughed into the back of one and like a row of dominos, 10 cars fell victim and were badly damaged. Yes, we have secure car parks that they could have used!
Now, we have intelligent people working here, but guess how many cars are parked in the same spot this morning?
Today I can guarantee snow at 11:15am as it's my job to manufacture it to hang directly over our bank of desks. We've decided against our planned 'Bah humbug' in favour of a more festive spirit or goodwill.
Here I am tying each snowflake (I recommend cotton wool because it's a lot dryer and doesn't disappear when you touch it) every 4" onto invisible nylon thread which is in fact visible. Everyone has a specific job to do, so by Monday when I next come in, it should all look like the ideal Christmas morning and every bit as false as San...what am I saying!! I should be ashamed of myself. I'm expecting to see a spectacular Bing Crosby Christmas setting. A totally white pre-Christmas lasting all the way through to the New Year.
We had a circular warning us not to hang anything from the ceiling. Well, this isn't just anything...it's hundreds of snowflakes of which I'm prepared to compromise and take a couple down if forced into a corner...that's a measure of how accommodating I am. I'm every bit a listener as the people who continue to park their cars at the front...I never learn!
Work is behind me now and Bev has helped me put the newly-painted wardrobe doors back on. She's done a good job of the painting and I'm glad the job is behind us. Now for the rest of the room (Saturday).
I'm preparing myself mentally for a different type of painting right now.
