Welcome friends to my temporary toy box or Blog Operations Office (BOO) or Blog Logistic Operations Office Department You Have Ever Looked Lovelier ( No……work it out for yourself). The office area is crammed into one corner of the Salon/Front room/Tidiest room where there happens to be the one and only power socket. Into the back of the desk are approximately one million cables from who knows where to who knows what, but it all seems to work. I have an old Telefonica Spanish telephone which is designed to ring when I am either on the loo, in the shower or out for the day. The rest of the time it never rings. I tell a lie. I had a Spanish woman call me about three times a day for a week shouting “Juan” (pronounced One) the only word she ever said. On the first day I was very polite. “Sorry you have the wrong number. There is only English here. With a resigned “Juan” she rang off. By the seventh day. “Juan”. I crashed the phone down with a “Two”. I never heard from her again. Maybe she never spoke to Juan and died of a cataleptic fit. Who knows.
As you can see in the photograph I have a proper office chair. Now I have a big problem with this chair and it’s called Sonic the cat. Every time, I mean every time I get out of the chair and disappear into the kitchen; wherever; he wakes up, jumps out of his basket and on to MY office chair. So when I return there is a curled up black cat just where I want to sit. After the first couple of days when I used to turf him out of the chair we came to a mutual arrangement. I would say “Out”, his head would poke out of the black ball of fur. “Come on Sonic. Out!!”. He would then reply with a “Meow!!”. I would touch his back and he immediately jumped down off the chair. I sit down and hear a “Meow” from the floor where he would be lying on his back rolling from side to side. So I play with him for five minutes. Then we both get bored. I swivel the chair to the keyboard and Sonic jumps back into his basket and promptly falls asleep.
Oh No!! I forgot to bring in the plate of cakes from the kitchen !!
