Everybody who’s anybody in the office has disappeared to London today on a work jolly to see various exhibitions in the big city.
Which means anybody who’s nobody has been left to hold the fort for the day.
Guess where I am?
Yes. Major Moody here at your service, armed to the teeth with clipboard and biro and prepared to defend Pippin Fort to the last drop of Tipp-Ex.
I never get invited on jollies. And it’s not like I’m uninterested in art or history – (the boss has gone to see the Hadrian exhibition). I guess such trips out are reserved solely for the upper middle-management (ooh bitchy) and the museum curators. Building Supervisors are not meant to be interested in arty, philosophical, historical concepts and objet d’art. Maybe if it was a conference on loo brushes I’d be allowed the price of the train ticket and an expenses paid lunch thrown in to boot?
But that makes me sound bitter and twisted and honestly I’m not. Because with the rest of ‘em out it leaves very few of us here at base and we can pretty much do what the hell we like for the day.
While the cat’s away, etc.
Hmm. You know, I feel a coffee break coming on. Followed by brunch.
Jollies? I just love ‘em.
They really work for me...
