Thoughts from category: inside fruit towers

messing about as boats

When you hold a desert island themed fancy dress party, you assume most people will grab a Hawaiian shirt and stick a flower in their hair. You don’t expect a whole team to come dressed as a pirate ship, complete with side cannons and a golden body painted figurehead, but that’s exactly what our Contract Management Team decided to do. 

Our Sam was asked to dress as ‘starboard’ so his wife, Mrs Woollet who teaches class Cedar 3 at Highwood Primary School, helped put his costume together. Her class were very disappointed that Sam’s bit of the boat didn’t win a prize (we forgot to award any) so they made a few themselves. 

 

Great mateys, the lot of you.

you think you know someone

You think you know your colleagues. You say hi to them in the morning. You chat about the news or the sport or the latest TV drama. Maybe you talk about something a bit more personal and, over time, you really get to know them. But, on the whole, they don’t often surprise you. You know them, they know you, everything carries on as normal.

You definitely don’t expect to one day find out that they’ve spent their time outside work carving miniature fruit sculptures for their pets.

And yet recently we’ve discovered that Paul does exactly that for his two tortoises, Gary and Alan, who he makes intricate presents for out of food. Such as these recreations of the London Olympics:

Or these carol singers at Christmas:

Or this tortoise friendly jubilee street party:


Each tortoise even has their own Facebook page (where there are more pictures to enjoy from Halloween to Easter). You can find Gary here and Alan here.
