A Career change is upon me

Apologies to all my avid fans for the lack of posts, I'd like to say its because I'm a dancer in strictly come dancing, or because I'm a singer in x-factor, but in reality it's because I got completely bloody lost out at sea and couldn't for the life of me fine my way back home. I think leaving a trail of plankton was probably my first big mistake. My second mistake was not laminating my map before I set off to tackle my fear of those pesky dolphins. But alas. I survived so no real damage done.

I was at work last Friday, and due to some important information needing to be sent out asap, I had to fold and stuff over 3,000 letters into envelopes. It took ALL day, and to be perfectly honest, it almost broke my spirit. There's only so much fun which one can gain from paper folding all day long. So I then decided to imagine that I was sending out children's Christmas wish list to Santa, and it worked, because it suddenly made the task feel so much more worthwhile. Sadly the rest of my office didn't find my new thinking as helpful.

Well after my Friday of happy thoughts of Santa, I decided to head to my local shopping center and pick up an application to be a Santa's little helper in our grotto! I filled out the form and just before I went to hand it in, I spilt Ribena all over it. So then I had to go back for a second form, but at least I look enthusiastic.

Your co-workers must all be big bahumbug people, I would have appreciated it and possibly sung Christmas Carols while we folded!!! :)

Santa's helpers are not allowed to strangle the cheeky children remember ;)

Nooo!!! Soggy Map!!! Soggy Map!!! Ewww!
Now, an important question must be asked. Were the envelopes sticky or did they require a good licking? Sore tongue must follow if they did! Perhaps the actual sealing of the envelopes was outsourced to a envelope sealing company? These things i must know! ;-)
I could never be a santas helper - my aversion to kids would be disastrous, i'd probably end up kicking one. :-p
