April Fool

Someone at work decided it would be amusing today to blu-tack the hand piece of my phone to the phone. So when my phone rang, I picked it up and I am sure you can imagine what happened. I was not amused.

I have left the office

Today I am having a late lunch, which is pretty normal. My working life consists of skipping lunch, eating at my desk or eating some left overs in a kitchen facility which by calling it poor is to give it a sparking, over-the-top review.

Morning Tea Break

Hello blog, long time no see again. Yes I know it is pathetic to write about how I haven’t put anything on my blog for such a long time. But why should I be any different to all the other wannabe bloggers. I am having break from some help desk database design work. I am […]

Grumpy Cow
