One of those places where everybody has to go, but nobody wants to be.
Unless you are one of those rare individuals who enjoys their work, but come on, seriously, do these people exist? Really??
Anyway, I’m at work. At my desk and at my computer. Technically at my phone since I’m writing this on there, but you get my drift.
For the most part, I have pretending to do stuff today. I have done the same task all day, when usually it would’ve taken me an hour. And the reason?
No, not in a Braveheart ‘Freeeeeeeeedddoooooooooommmmmm!’ kind of way. Silly. More in the fact that next week I’m off on holiday, away from this office.
It’s only for a week and it’s not out of the country, it’s one of these ‘stay-cations’. I love that word.
It’s going to be on the seafront. I’m going with the family. And so far, the weather forecast looks good. I’m actually quite excited and looking forward to it. First holiday for two years. I might even have a drink. Whoa, steady there.
Anyway, it’s away from this office. This group of people I spend all year with. Some are tolerable. Some are down right annoying. But most of all, I won’t be thinking about them or the office at all. I can guarantee that.
It may be weird to you that we are deciding to go to the seafront in the UK in September, but think about it. It’s the end of season, the weather could still spring a surprise and the kids are back at school.
