Belt Up, Betty! Underneath the tree...


This week, has been nuts! I think I did mention that before somewhere earlier in the week.   We finally finished decorating the office for the departmental decorating competition – where I am sure we are breaking every Health and Safety violation there is!!  It was fun, although some late nights too – this is how committed we are to winning.   I spent hours cutting out paper snowflakes and hanging them on ribbon, making flames from felt for paper fireplaces, twisting pipe-cleaners together to make candy canes to hang from the ceiling.    My boss, who hates Christmas with a passion, ended up making four cardboard reindeer heads which we tied to the pillars.  It really was a team effort and I think that was the key.  Whilst there’s 20 of us and we all work very individually – decorating the office was an interesting exercise in who came out to the be natural leaders, who were happy to be ordered around and those couple (and there where only two) who didn’t want anything to do with it – however, will be happy enough to take the praise.

The moral of this story is – sometimes a little bit of fun in the workplace can lift spirits.  The company I work has this mantra of ‘Work Smarter, Play Harder’ – it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.  Some just want to come in, do their job and then go home – the ‘plodders’, however, without the plodders of the workplace, there would be no balance, those are the people that keep harmony and consistency whilst everyone is flying around in a blind panic.   So, never be critical of those that never want to take part – they are the ones that are answering your phones, whilst you’re hanging snowflakes from the ceiling!  Without them, you would be up and down that ladder like a yo-yo – so remember, horses for courses, not everyone is the same #NoMoreSnowflakes, #IsItEasterYet? #EveryoneHasAPlace
