My 'proper' office (instead of the one I have when working from home - the one where working in my PJ's is not optional) is in the CBD. That's strike one to this country girl. Its also in a basement with no windows or connection to the outside world other than air vents (kind of necessary) - strike 2. I also work in an almost all male domain (I am one of two females) - sounds nice but trust me computer geeks are not the same as working with hunky firemen! So strike three and its OUT!

WE would swim naked in the dam
WE would pick apples and make apple pie with them the same day
WE would sit outside in the sun in an old wicker chair and just watch the chooks
WE would write about nothing at all and make it sound like the best adventure
WE would be as happy as a pig in shite to just be with the bestest and most beautiful people on this planet.
WE will get you your very own shitter!
her to me...

Love it and love you Xxx
PS: Bit of a fancy shitter for you!
her to me ...
I know I know, the door is abit of a luxury …
As you can see we both work hard at our jobs. This was all done during our lunch breaks and I am a terrible lier! Its ok, she works for the big man upstairs and I just work for a big man.
I wonder if one day, when we are indeed sitting on a veranda with a blue gin bar, if we will look back at this blog post and laugh!
