... out to make everyone get back to work then HE started yapping to me. But that was OK because we had a lovely little gossip about everyone (hehe I'm still his favourite) even though I broke the hose connector for the third time! I left him a note on his desk with the broken connector saying "oops I did it again". I'm a funny one. This evening Daisy and I had a delicious dinner of steak, jacket potato with spinach and beetroot salad (kudos for the meat darling). Ero Tergum ...
