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 …

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.
