I didn’t even know there was a competition when I won the first prize for the best decorated desk for Christmas at the office this year. Late one night Chris and I went into the office and wrapped my desk and the surrounding furniture in Christmas wrapping paper. It took a while to do but the results look great!
I’ve been working some pretty silly hours at the office and at night at home lately. My boss wants us to work covering more jobs than just our normal job. A couple of months ago I was asked to do some work at a recuiting company that my company owns for 2 or 3 days a week… whilst still doing my own job. It’s been a bit stressful because the quality of work at my normal job has dropped significantly. The company wants me to start selling my time to other parts of the business. They say that we are not cost cutting… but it feels like it is. I’m hoping the situation of having to work long hours will stop soon. It’s driving me a little bit crazy.
Well the office has finally moved in to it’s permanent new location in the Docklands. We moved into a call centre in the CBD about 18 months ago until this place was built. It’s a great new building but it’s quite a lot further from the loft, so I have to get a tram , scooter or bike ride to the new location. It’s a bit sad that the location is outside of the CBD. I liked being so close. Here is a shot of the employee’s lounge. It’s a nice area to hang out during the day. I will be sharing my time between Docklands and our recruitment agency on Collins Street.
