This week’s Six Word Saturday is
Work Is Looking A Lot Brighter
This week we moved office. That’s not strictly true, our company is still based where we have been for the past five-and-a-half years, but our continued expansion means that we have taken two floors in another building about a hundred yards away, and my department (all two of us) were among the ones who got to move.
We’ve spent the last five-and-a-half years in the coldest part of our office, with a door to our right, a window behind us and the air-conditioning positioned so that the cold (always cold) air bounced off the wall beside me and into my face.
Polar bears, penquins and icebergs on their way south to attack White Star Liners refused to stop there.
Bob Cratchit, sitting with his half-gloves on, spent one morning working there and rushed sobbing back to Scrooge begging for his old job back.
But now we’ve moved. We even have a little room of our own on the fourth floor, full of warmth, natural light and a really nice plant (well ok, we bought the plant).
There is an outdoor balcony the whole way around our floor and already I have forced myself (I’m afraid of heights) to walk all the way around it, which to be honest was the hardest work I did all week.
And where previously this was our view (if we turned and looked out of the window behind us):
This is it now:
See, even the weather is better in the new office.
