The dog gets her share
A couple of weeks ago my company asked all staff to work in the office 3 days a week. I told my bosses that I couldn't do it due to child care arrangements and they've agreed that that will be fine. Phew!
I think working in the office in a collaborative project is beneficial but so too is having the flexibility to work from home.
The thing that annoyed me most about the announcement is that we were told on a Friday and were expected to head in 3 days a week the next week with no notice. Childcare, especially school holiday care is planned months in advance and to spring this on your employees at such short notice is pretty harsh.
And this time with some beach
There's a Michelin starred restaurant not too far from where we were staying so thought i'd check out it's availability for whilst we were there. Luckily they did. In fact they had a second slot the next day. Both the girls went on the Wednesday with the boys going the next day. It was great, especially with the pared wines. £450 per night though! Ouch!
