You will be pleased to know that I have since managed to borrow one of Phil's antiquated laptops, but I have to keep feeding the hamsters to make sure the battery stays charged.
This weekend has been hectic, what with Juan being in Dubai and all. However, Becks and I did manage to get out of the office when a potential new American client wanted us to visit him to discuss the Baumhaus products and Kinetic logistics (part of Baumhaus) services. After meeting the client in Oxford Circus, Becky had done such a good job of her presentation, that it would have been rude not to offer her lunch.
"Fancy a bite to eat?" I asked
"Damn right," she replied, adding "we are right next to Carnaby Street, so we can find something down there." That is the benefit of going places with Logistics Managers - they always know where everything is. She is like a Sat Nav with long hair.
Pic. No. 1 Carnaby Street which is famous for it's quirky trend-setting shops, unfortunately, none of which still exist.
After a pretty quick lunch, we decided to head back to Oxford because things were busy with Juan on holiday. I managed to get a quick couple of pictures of the chaps............
And then I arrived back at the car. Dammit. I had been given a parking ticket. Apparently, as a direct result of our technological ineptitude, the payment had failed when we tried to pay by text. As a result, we have been fined £120.00. That could buy me 61.85 Big Macs. Is it me, or does it seem a bit steep?
Anyway, the hapless explorers eventually made it back to Oxford in one piece, to be encountered by Phil.
"Do you guys fancy a long weekend sailing in the Mediterranean next week?"
"Yes ok." I replied.
"Spose so," said Becks.
"I'll book it then," said Phil.
Then all of a sudden, it was weekend, and Baumhaus resembled the Marie Celete. Employees have no dedication these days.
