    has there been any recent talks of tightening the screws? or could it just be a surprise cake buffet?

    Went for a BASIC Indian last night now feel rough, probably because I was really stoned and ate enough for 4 people. I'm clinically obese now.

    Not that I know of. I work in HR, so it’s not like they’re gonna get rid of all of us. But who knows! We have been recruiting for a brand new director so it might be something to do with that.

    Thanks love! If it IS bad news, then I’m off to The Counting House. Wetherspoons sell alcohol at this time, don’t they? :D

    So I was right. We’ve appointed a new ‘Director of People’ who will be the head HR honcho. We’re also moving to our own directorate whatever that means. I’m sure they’ll come in and change things around but I still have my job, for now!

    Anyway, in other news, I got the new iPhone XS at the weekend and its a thing of beauty. I upgraded from the iPhone 6s and the difference is stark! The camera is outstanding!

    Not NECESSARILY

    If I can STICK IT OUT for another 3.5 years (and the place doesn't go UNDER) I should have enough money to pay off the mortgage and THEN SOME. Maybe then I can do something PART TIME or EVEN VAGUELY INTERESTING instead of being someone's LAPDOG.

    I feel my patience being TESTED today and I’m not sure why. I think I was alright in the morning. I suspect the Pepsi I drank in mission impossible had more caffeine that normal stuff (and I didn’t realise until after that it had blackcurrant flavour in it too), and maybe the film wired me up. But I think it might just be PEOPLE

    I'm far too hot in this office and have shiny lights in my peripheral vision. Great.

    My patience is also being tested by office banality leading to loss of production this morning. There are only three of us in, me, office girl and office lady. So far they've spent roughly two hours of the morning not working and talking about office lady's 15 year old son and how horrid he is, office lady's complaints about her personal trainer, office girl's new house that she's buying and the intricacies of moving into it while I'm doing my own work plus the work of the three missing staff.

    Fancy relocating back down south?

    We've got a nice little two bed in a trendy adjacent neighbourhood that will be free in a few months hopefully.

    I'm working from a city centre BUSINESS LOUNGE and its got NOTHING on the glamour of Cheadle Royal. The toilets are like a fucking nightclubs and there isn't even a window.

    I bet everyone thinks I've taken today off to avoid the MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING

    What they DON'T know is that I put about £50 in each year while no-one's looking, which is about HALF the final total, AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE A FUCKING CAKE. I bet they all stand down there SCOFFING THEMSELVES and CALLING OUT anyone they spot with their EAGLE EYES who fails to put 50p in the TIN when they make a cup of TEA

    I'm wondering whether Mr S is reading this (HI)

    He seemed very certain that a letter addressed to MS SHEENA POTTLE was something to do with me (I was just feeding DIRECT LINE false information to prove that they were trying to RIP ME OFF)

    I'd have gone for a more obviously humorous name such as Pat McCatt or Lisa Greement.

    I seem to have calmed down after having some food, and a visit from an Indonesian twink, and now some chocolate.

    But tragically I need to do some ironing

    Ah shit. I was going to have a week off booze after the weekend, but one first class train ride and three free beers later and I've already failed.

    I saw a mosquito, a big one, on the curtain. So I squished it, with another bit of the curtain. It turned out it had been eating someone (possibly the Indonesian), and now there are two blood spots on it
