PEOPLE 246 – GOING TO WORK 14 (MONO)
January 1, 2017 4 Comments
Just around sunrise on a sunless Friday morning, a steady stream of souls moving over the bridge – one of the city’s main arteries – people moving towards and past my lens, people moving in towards the city centre.
Well, cold and sunless it was, but in many hearts and minds I’m sure was the warm hope and glow produced by – “TGIF!” >>> “THANK GOD ITS FRIDAY!!!”.
And so to Friday mid-morning and lunch time treats: the cakes, fast food, artisan sandwiches, convivial lunches, a few drinks maybe – all very much looked forward to and savoured.
And recently on the news some sad health professional was saying that workers should not have Friday treats as they’re bad for health. Which leads to two thoughts. Firstly an urge for the uttering of really very basic Anglo-Saxon expletives which, this being a wholesome and chaste blog, remain firmly bottled up (where they do nothing but ferment nicely, of course). Followed by the feeling that sometimes the UK can be a rather sad place; there are times when we seem to have forgotten how to enjoy ourselves.
