Yesterday was a mahooosively exciting day for me and Darrell, not only was it our first day back at work after the Whitsun break but it was also our last day in the Departmental Assistants Office which is/was situated in the old part of the school.
We had been given an allotted allocation of big purple crates and sticky labels and advised to pare down wherever possible ……. and to label EVERYTHING that was too big to fit into the aforementioned big purple crates ….. amongst which was, most importantly, Darrell’s shredder, the main tool for his work as Confidential Document Shredder Operative!
This was the final push for our much anticipated and awaited
incantation “decantation” to our new office - D5 in the “demountables” …… which is “posh planners speak” for moving us to the temporary offices/classrooms now positioned over on the tennis courts – which we have now affectionately christened “Cabin City”
There had been much debate, at times heated, as to whether we should have a “Demounting Party” before we left, but as there was an awful lot of demounting going on in other offices as well as ours, we decided that we should have an “Demountable Warming Party” when we happily and firmly ensconced in our new workspace (below)
