I had to do a serious/proper list of what I do today to prepare for my maternity leave. But it got me thinking about the randomness of my daily life at work. Because it really is quite random.
Here’s a snap-shot of some of the oddness that has crossed my desk over the last couple of weeks….
Urine on the sports hall roof
One hundred 16 year olds sleeping in the car park
Finding £5,000 for a Shelter
Ice cream thrown at staff
Sourcing 90 sleeping bags
Matching a mosque and a Salvation Army hall to work together
Steam train exhibitions
Voicemail systems down
Dead birds on the roof
Leading a debate about the benefits of ‘damaged’ over ‘broken’
Resignations, grievances and disciplaries
Streakers showing their wotsits to the whole of Wimbledon
Policeman doing Zumba
Mysterious heating issues
Dodgy lightning conductors
Moving of the Queen Mother
Dubious uses of CCTV
Film crews on site
And thousands of offers of $1m+ from all around the world…
I reckon it’s a good job I love my job, but I can’t say I’m not looking forward to a break!
