I have just read Bad Man's journal, and alongside teaching me some new vernacular to describes one's colleagues, I was most taken by his terrible evening out with dull colleagues. Conversation was, he reported, nigh on non-existent, and where it did exist the general opinion was that it should not have done so. I did like the visit to the loo to text tigger bit. Most ingenious.
All I can say to that is, has he tried working from home unexpectedly for an enforced period of ill Maggot watching, and a Maggot, I should remind you, that had lost his voice completely, thus denying a chap of even the most basic of conversations. "What ya watching?". "repeats of The Simpon's", and the like.
Overall, the busy week is as expected. School run followed by Maggot watching until mid morning, then a quick scoot up to the local Starfleet to be with the team and to spend at least a small amount of time face-to-face with my work colleagues. Also need to be back pronto to attend two times parents' evenings.
After that, two more days working before we are off for 4 days in the 'van. We are going to the outskirts of London to a lovely, peaceful and relatively rural site, but as a base for a couple of day trips to London. I hope and expect that a fantastic time will be had by all, we just have to remember not to spend anything.
