I must admit to being in a bit of a rush today because I have to get to a friend of the family's 65th birthday party in Kent.

Beach bum

Hmmm... another male colleague's birthday (how inconvenient of all these blokes to make me have to think really hard about so many different male birthday cards in such a short space of time) This colleague jokes about how lazy he is - he will wheel his chair around the office rather than walk & often… Continue reading Beach bum
