Holidays! What holidays……?

For the past couple of years, with the kids now a little matured and tending to prefer spending Summer holidays with friends rather with their parents, my wife & I have taken our breaks towards the end of the Summer…

There are many benefits and one of them was the ability to enjoy a quieter, lazier, traffic-free and less frenetic London.

Generally, work was slower, phones calmer, commercial & business life became less hectic.

The frantic pace of life reduced & evenings seemed to arrive earlier & pleasant walks in the balmy evenings somehow took longer…

Not this Summer - so far!!

This year, albeit it is only very early August, the volume of work arriving is nuts…

Fresh clients are signing on to our telephone services, application forms are sitting in email inboxes in increasing quantities, new line-installation orders are excellent and enquiry levels are soaring…

I am truly thankful & grateful for all this additional business and know that extra enquiries, business & orders at any time are a bonus but does it all have to be done today - NOW!

What happened to good old-fashioned, leisurely, summertime mañana?

Relax guys…

Norman and gang will help you all to the best of their abilities but come on…!

Be Reasonable! ;-)

Yep. Have to agree. Our business (printing) is doing well too this summer. Could it be because everyone else has left town for the beach?

Yep, mebbe....

Conspiracy theories abound.

Truth be told, I enjoy my work so I'm a pretty happy bunny in the office too..

Maybe it's a plot...

'They' don't WANT you to have a holiday, Norman!

Hi Norman,

Enjoy your August in the office, the holiday will be so much sweeter if you've worked like a mad thing beforehand!

Every time I decide to go on holiday, my work world goes mad.

Perhaps I should declare a permanent holiday?
