Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Posted: 28/06/2017 at 18:42

Evening all.

Well I can safely say that I made a BIG IMPACT in my meeting today.

Not all good, well unless my staff like working from home in their pjs, but still... all constructive (or at least it will be once I've swum through this almighty river of poo to retrieve the office paddle that was carelessly thrown out by the previous manager).

Still; safe to say my bosses will remember my name.

Tonight is all about letting my brain rest a little!

Oh Joyce I'm so sorry to hear about your husband but glad you were able to get some decent sleep.

Very wet and grey today; a car crash on the motorway is filling up the roads ready for me to *gasp* venture out of Yorkshire to *horror* the South.

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau

Silly question; do you have Facebook and Twitter accounts for the chateaux set in?

Afternoon all. 

Busy busy busy. I now have over 600 years of award medals to sort out for my volunteers! This is going to involve a lot of hand shaking.

Much cooler here today, jumper weather. Suddenly everything feels.... grey. Like the colour of the world has been washed away.

Thank you for responding Sarah. But this enquiry was originally posted in 2012; I'm not even sure they will get your message.

What a rewarding job! I'm not allowed near rescue centres; I'd bring them all home!

Morning all. 

Feeling rather sluggish this morning for some reason. I can't even blame not wanting to go to work (although there is some apprehension about what will break down on me this week after Fridays disaster). 

I've never heard of a polar low Pat; but it doesn't sound warm and toasty. 

Yesterday I tried to post about clearing the area around the space allocated for the garage (I don't think the post worked). Since with the new car all funds will have evaporated the garage won't be appearing for a good few years so I set about trying to tidy the area up. When the green wheelie bin is emptied I'll be able to get it finished. 

Efforts to drop hints about vegetable beds aren't working so far. But his family (who are avid gardeners) are coming up soon so I may get his father involved in planning.

Evening all. I've posted a few times but they don't seem to be on the forum.

Hopefully this one will work; sweet dreams All!
