Back to work after a summer break with the children. The thing that is hard to get used to in New Zealand is that the entire country seems to close for 4 weeks around Xmas. Most people do not return to work after Dec 24 until Jan 16.
I just spent the past week watching Caits & Josh improve their swimming skills in a School Holiday programme. This involves a lesson everyday for 10 days.
The weather has been great with only one day of rain yesterday & yes the kids went to their lesson in the outdoor pool at Glen Eden School.
My colleague A is away also at the moment, she has a sign on her monitor which states PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE ANYTHING FROM THIS DESK I personally see this as a challenge; So with the help of the team we have removed EVERYTHING from her desk & stored it away awaiting her return. Moments like this alleviate the silence of the telephones & the absence of clients....
