Off Ill today

I was up for a lot of the night with food poisoning last night. It's an expensive problem as a contractor, I'm better today but taking the day off today just in case. No work = no pay

I spotted this on the way out to lunch today

Here's the blub in a work e-mail

The company I work for is a leader in insuring fine art and there are hundreds of pieces of similar artworks on display around the place.

I'm glad the Turtle made it in one piece all the way up to our York office.

Tonbridge Christmas lights

Tonbridge Christmas lights were switched on last night.  And they put on a very good firework display afterwards.



Delay repay

There was a problem with Cannon Street station this morning and I was given two options.  Stay on the train that was now getting diverted to Victoria or change at Orpington and hope for the best.  I opted for hope.

I arrived at my desk over an hour late.  I intentionally tend to start an hour early so that I can get out on time (to pick up Flo) so not too big a deal but it's still a waste of my time.  I should get a fair amount back on my rail ticket at least..

Best mornings

I woke up this morning thinking I was about to have to get up and go to work. It's great when you suddenly realise it's actually a Sunday and you can have a bit of a lie in.

And then Florence wakes up...

Another win

Turns out i'm now the head of pricing at my new company

I also have 3 members of staff that I didn't realise I was managing.

I'd be happy to take the additional day rate but not sure if i'd be able to eek out the lack of skills for the role for my 3 month contact.

Productive morning

Our IT system is currently down, so I've done fuck all work for the past hour. Brilliant. There's not much I could do anyway as I also have zero access to any of the folders.
