Our Sikh colleagues at work celebrated the birthday of Guru Nanek today. He’s the guy who founded the Sikh religion in the 1400’s. A man way ahead of his time who tried to get rid of the gender inequality and the caste system in India.
The Sikh community at work brought a lot of food in to share with everyone. Definitely not expected, but really nice and a very kind gesture.

Well at long last it’s a bit quieter in my department. I just hope I’m not speaking too soon. It hasn’t stopped the strange ones from calling in though.
Like the guy who accused me of being rude when I asked him if there was anything else I could help him with before he went.
Or the people who call us up and say they are waiting for an engineer from a different company.
I suppose this will never change.
Tomorrow we have a nice big buffet to celebrate a directors birthday and the US thanksgiving. Stuffing our faces with nice fattening things never goes amiss.

Yesterday I had a lovely massage, facial, manicure and pedicure. A few hours of unashamed self-pampering that went down extremely well. Actually my daughter paid for it and gave it me as a birthday present. Lovely!
The last time I went for a manicure it was at place where they used all electrical equipment and my nails were so thin and brittle afterwards that I never went back. I’ll definitely be going back to this new salon though. They were really good. Very professional. Nails were done by hand – no electric files. It was Shellac polish too.
In the evening I went to the pub with some mates. Nothing new about that. We had a really good time. I drank too much. Nothing new about that either. This morning I got up with my head feeling as if it was in a vice. This is something new. I don’t get hangovers. But I did today. Now I understand what people are talking about!
I had a couple of paracetamol and ran a nice hot bath. I stayed in the bath for 2 hours, topping it up with hot water now and then. It helped. My head has gone back to normal but I feel very sluggish and tired. So I’ve not gone out anywhere today. Today I’m hibernating.

Actually it wasn’t all that bad today. I even had my photo taken and my ID pass replaced. It’s not brilliant but it could have been far worse. My old one was extremely scratched and I most certainly don’t have wrinkles that bad.
I had yesterday off. It was my birthday. There was no way in hell I was spending my birthday at work. You feel bad enough getting older, but work ages me 20 years while I’m there. I lose them as soon as I walk through the door to go home. I can do without the premature aging when I’ve aged another year biologically.
After my previous post about safety, I forgot to mention that quite a few of us seem to get a call between 1 and 5 minutes before the end of our shift, and it’s often the same type of call – sales. I don’t believe in coincidences. The calls I get are always the same type of sales call, where I have to go through a few more details than normal. Sure enough the same thing happened today. However, the woman I was speaking to suddenly got a caller at her front door and didn’t want to stay on the phone. This left me with 3 minutes before I could leave.
Well, I certainly wasn’t prepared to take another call during those last three minutes, so I used the time to log some notes on the system. Of course this was interspersed with putting things away in my locker. I upped and left exactly at 5.30pm, with the nastiest look from a certain sales manager.
This is a particular sales manager who doesn’t seem to have any clue about employee laws. I reckon that sooner or later she is going to come off quite badly. Without going into full details because I’ve not got permission, she has actually put someones life in danger, medically speaking, and she’s got away with it. I don’t think that will happen twice.
