We have now moved over to our new clearing home for the next seven weeks. Everyone was nervous on Friday knowing that we were at a new sit in our new teams and having to begin using our new phone system.
On Sunday I had a lovely afternoon with my sister –out –law (we are exes of brothers!) doing the Sydenham Arts trail. Lots of local artists open their houses to exhibit their work and you can just pop in, look around , talk to the artists and buy incredible quality work. Some places offer cups of tea, others a glass of wine while others charge for tea and cakes to raise money for charity. Of course we had to drop in to our stained glass teacher Pippa’s house or she would have been thoroughly cross with us! There is so much work I would have loved to have bought but I retrained myself to two pieces of Pippa’s painted glass work – I am a poor student after all!
Everyone was very sympathetic and we all logged in ready to tackle the new phone system ....but it didn’t work! Everything had to be re-jigged back so we could use the old system and we could not sit in our new teams. We are still waiting for it to get sorted and it feels quite an anti climax after being so geared up for the change.
Today in between taking calls we have been decorating our folders and magazine racks. Raz brought in her coloured pencils and felt tips while I provided the glitter, sequins and glue. Our corner now looks quite lovely but the boys refuse to join in apart from Sharat graciously condescending to allow us to decorate his pen top with red glitter – he is very scared he may be attacked by a frenzy of pink which happened last year when all the girls in his tem decided to brighten up his bay!
