Grateful for my wonderful assistants who job share so usually don’t come into the office at the same time (apart from today). I couldn’t miss the opportunity to get a photo of them together. Trouble is that they are such good friends and such funny people that in the few seconds it took me to get the camera lined up they’d cracked each other up and this is the result …
Grateful for my sturdy shoes – 15 years and counting. Many others have come and gone but these have stuck around.
Grateful for finally having a bit of clear desk.
Grateful for my dictaphone: love sitting in my office ‘talking to myself’.
Grateful for my stamp; saves a lot of writing.
Grateful for a cool fountain in Madrid to go wading in (just doing what the locals were!).
Today was my last day of work for AGES. I have never had this much time off work so it was a very big day. It was made even better with a special send off and a card from my colleagues with beautiful messages to Simon and me. Very grateful for having an employer willing to let me go away on extended leave.
Grateful for being required to go out for a walk in the sunshine for work (aka going to Court).
Grateful for the fantastic change room at work with lockers, plenty of showers and somewhere to hang your towel to dry. Makes riding into work much easier.
Grateful for ‘war paint’ giving me the extra confidence I needed while being a real grown up lawyer presenting at a conference of my peers.
