The weather is indeed gorgeous, so I'm going to get off this sofa and get on my bike

I'm going to sit in the garden and read my book; simple pleasures

It looks very warm out there, in my air conditioned office it appears to be 20degC with a very, very light breeze.  They let me out in 3 hours, just before it gets dark

If it's any consolation I've been in a orifice all through the summer when I had planned to have the whole kids holiday period off.

Poor use of the conditional, here.

The weather people do this as well. "If you're driving north tomorrow, the weather in the Midlands will be raiiny."

Er, won't the weather be rainy in the Midlands even if I'm not driving north? Why are you makiing the weather conditional on my actions?

Actually if you are in an office reading this, what's it like? Open plan, spacious, friendly? Or bitchy and smelling of halitosis and dead pot.

Plants.

It's a reflection on how sedentary the western world has become, you used to have to make the effort to get up and dance for the rain. Now you can just drive and do the occasional cheeky flinch of your windscreen wiper. Mother nature will toss her doner kebab to one side and shower you with gold.

I am in an open plan office in the Lower Ground floor, we have windows but the view is of a wall. But I can see that the sun is indeed shinning Nothing bitchy in the office, normally really quiet oh and its just blokes

I guess thats just the way it is, I am only temping with the company and have only been here three months. Apparently they did used to have women in the office.

Edited to say - There are women here in the rest of the building who work for the same firm its just this particular office.

I've never been in an office full time until this summer. I've always had an office, just not an office job. I was drafted in to my usual place of work to help behind the scenes for 6 weeks. I love the people and the work was fine; but I could not sit on my arse for 8 hours a day every day. I literally couldn't so I took my Swiss ball in and got rid of the chair, I put my keyboard up on the windowsill and stood up for hours.

And I volunteered to do every errand going that involved physically walking from A to B.

Whoever decided that we're meant to sit on our behinds for most of our lives? I just can't, but people say you get used to it. I'm sure that battery hens get used to their environment too!

Off topic but I like the weather forecasters who say "showers today but not everybody will catch one"  err if they did you might call it rain everywhere

My office is in a temporary portacabin, well that's what the CEO told me when I was recruited 11 years ago

I have a mix of full and part time staff, all the part timers have gone home now, school runs etc.  Atmosphere is good, indeed very good because it's almost time for them all to go home for a sunny weekend.  

Tour of Britain race is here on Sunday, Wiggins, Cavendish et al and there are plenty of other bike events in town, but think I am the only one interested, conversation between phone calls currently is TV programmes I have hardly heard of let alone watched.

I'm sat in the garden with tea and biscuits, just got back from physio, and totally forgotten about work already

Is this a KK thread without a question attached?

Today's office was a Ford Kuga that started in the Austrian alps, then descended towards the North East Italian plains and paused briefly at Venice. Thence turned in to an Airbus 320 and continued onwards to Heathrow.

The weather was still gorgeous!
