Phew

Back to work today.

We started the day with a safety briefing. The company had some minor damage, but it was all mostly broken windows, ceilings and water damage from a raptured pipe. There is a hole in the atrium roof which made the working conditions decidedly chilly, especially this morning when the heating was off too. The poor palm tree beneath it looked throughly depressed though.

They're also paying me for the whole week, which was exceptionally nice of them. I've ended up in a better position due to the explosion, than I'd have been otherwise - result! I'm also allowed to work over the Christmas period when most people are off. A bit depressing, but I need the money.

As you say, not nice having to work over Christmas, but I'm glad for you that the finances will be somewhat eased because of that.

I wouldn't say eased, more like less pear-shaped.

Ah, had missed the coldness too, wrap up warm.

Good news on the finances front, even if it means working over the Christmas closeure period. Christmas is over the weekend so I presume you won't be going in then? You are getting Boxing Day aren't you?

Not so good on the chilly, You left your wooly hat in the Astra. Do you want me to parcel it off to you?

I like your raptured pipe. Wish I could use it in chapter 9. I need some atmosphere for the W&H office.

Noooo! Only non-holiday days.

The raptured pipe has made a right mess of the carpet. Also, it went in one of the manager's offices too, it now smells of eau de wet dog. If you need officey details, I can defintely help.

>>You left your wooly hat in the Astra. Do you want me to parcel it off to you?
Oops. never even noticed! Yes, please?




I still have a job, which is more than some can say right now.

Well that's good news about the money but working in a chilly building isn't at all pleasant (I've been there). Hoping the heat is back on asap.

They need to get the roof on first. :)

I've ended up in a better position due to the explosion, than I'd have been otherwise - result!

A tin, going on stainless steel lining to your current cloud, perhaps?

It was a very very black one. ;)

Thank God -- I'm pleased for you the job's still there. Your icon looks strangely appropriate in the circumstances.

Hmm. It does! Fire damaged!

Phew!

Mind you, you need to watch that raptured pipe. Sounds... odd.

It's supposed to be all fixed over the weekend, though no one quite believes that.

Christmas is often the best time to work because it's so quiet and you can get paid for having a rest ;)
Very glad to hear they were extra generous with you.

And they send you home early.

Not that that will help me this time.

They're also paying me for the whole week, which was exceptionally nice of them. I've ended up in a better position due to the explosion, than I'd have been otherwise - result!

W00t! I couldn't be happier for you -- what a relief! But that raptured pipe worries me a little; stay out of its way, will you?

I'm working over the Christmas period too, so cheer up! you're not alone.

I don't think the pipe is ruptured anymore. I'm more concerned about falling ceilling tiles, some are a bit warped.
