Winter

Is it just me or has winter come early this year? It’s brass monkies out there!

Back to work and the “big freeze”

Well, I’m well and truly back to work now. Thursday and over the hump of the first week back after a break. Bloody cold though. My office has been at 6 degrees C most of the week… brrrrrrrr

That being said, it IS winter. It amazes me that the whole of the UK seems in shock that it’s cold… DURING WINTER! Who would have thought it possible?

Just wait till the conveyor stops working, THEN we’ll get some winters! I’m buying shares in rocksalt…

Ice and snow… and ice.

Well due to the recent inclement weather I managed to slip on black ice and fall badly on my left ankle. When I hit the floor I had some nice white flashes and nausea, leading me to believe I had broken something.

As it turns out my ankle was simply sprained, (it has now gone a rather fetching shade of black and purple). I was surprised at the time though as a few bystanders rushed to assist me with one good Samaritan picking me up off the floor and helping me to a bench. A few shopkeepers rallied around and called for assistance and in no time at all a security guard turned up asking if I needed an ambulance. As i’m a big strong man (cough) I declined the ambulance but the response was heartwarming. It reaffirmed my belief in the human species.

Between my recent experience of excellent customer service and now good Samaritans, I’ve got a warm fuzzy feeling inside which may be because it’s Christmas (or because of the painkillers I’m taking for my sprain)
