There is something very alluring about a life at sea ………….. all that dancing round horn pipes, clearing decks and splicing mainbraces not to mention wearing bell bottomed trousers and hats at jaunty angles …………
but it helps to be able to swim ……….

I find Personal Assistants a bit intimidating!
They seem so efficient and self assured.
I went to the office to ask for a timesheet, forgetting that I was clutching a chocolate chick and I felt so foolish!
I have been buying one chocolate chick a week and putting them away for Easter for all my family and friends, but I didn’t like to go into all the where-with-alls with Tallulah…… perhaps I should get her one too.

This is Molly’s best friend Madeline. Madeline helps in the Reception Office.
She has to answer the phone a lot which makes her throat quite dry.
She also has to frank all the important letters.
She and Molly thought it would be funny to see how much it would cost to post Molly"!
Not a lot, but Molly couldn’t fit through the franking machine without being squashed as flat as a pancake, so that’s as far as they got!

This is Archibald, he is the tea boy in one of the offices where mum works.
He makes a BRILLIANT and most refreshing cup of tea. .
His top tips for a good cup of tea are:- always use a “good” tea, allow five minutes to brew, never use a tea bag twice and a nice mug, with a lovely pussy cat picture can help with the ambience when tea sipping!
It must be lovely to have a job which brings such pleasure to so many parched busy ladies!

I am not overly keen of Gail Platt/Tilsley/Macintyre, whatever her name is …….. on Coronation Street, her fluttery eyes and the ways she talks in that simpery voice when she is being earnest really gets on my erm….. nerves….. keep her banged up, innocent or not !

Do you remember in December when the ladies in the office made me an Advent Tut Bag and I got a Grow Your Own Christmas Tree Kit …. well, it’s grown!!!! I didn’t think it would, but when I looked yesterday it had. How BRILLIANT is that?
I am so excited, and I can see another shoot coming up too, so perhaps I will have two tiny Christmas trees to decorate my festive bedroom for Christmas 2010 – that I can say I had grown all by myself! Wooooo Hoooo.

The Young Ladies are putting on a show and I am working as “Front of House”.
When everyone is seated I have to dash backstage to work as prompt in case anyone forgets their lines.
It’s BRILLIANT! When they come off the stage they all give me a little hug – it’s like being in show business but not with famous people!

Darrell wasn’t feeling very well yesterday, he is quite a bit younger than us and so we all look after him …
I made sure he was all tucked up and comfortable.
Then Cyril came to see if he wanted a drink ……
And then Mollie came and hummed to Darrell till he went to sleep. I wish she would hum to me……..

I helped with the laundry today – it’s hard work ….
I used Bold with lavender and camomile, it makes everything smell lovely when it come out, even my socks!
Then I had to tumble everything – BUT if I take things out at just the right time I can save on the ironing!
I didn’t like sorting out all the socks, what a boring job!

Yesterday Molly went on Mr Collis’s bus with the young ladies, unfortunately Molly felt a little queasy, but after several weeks with Mr Collis, Mr Collis’s monkey is an expert in such matters and was able to calm Molly down to such an extent that the sick bucket and paper towels were not required.

Hello, how might I help you?
Do you have a signed permission slip ….. in triplicate?
Yes, I do have some lovely colours in my A4 paper, my favourite is the deep purple, shall I run off 100 copies off on that, or would you prefer plain white?

ALL the ladies in the Office have a monkey of their own now – I think they saw me and JUST had to have one too! (E-bay has been very very busy!) It’s great to go to the office now – before it was a bit boring on my own ….
This is me with Darrell, in the check shirt and Cyril in the hoodie.
Molly is very shy, and the only girl and it took us ages to persuade her to have her picture taken with us.
I LOVE Molly!

I gave my mum a special Mother’s Day breakfast this morning. I made her a nice big cup coffee to get her started, and two slices of marmite on toast.
