Day 9 - Wednesday 9th January

Take time every day to do something ridiculous - Philipa Walker

Lets see the silly side to you!

Ooh another hard one. I think of myself as a fun person and I like to have a laugh regardless of where I am or what I am doing – hence one of my goals is to grow up. I tend to mess around too much and probably am too silly at work when I should be sensible and be perceived as the manager that I am. But hey I think life is short and you spend a lot of time at work and so you should have fun whilst you are there. I just need to learn when to stop!! I think as long as the work is getting done on time then it is fine to have fun!!! Not sure that everyone at my company shares this view though!!! One of my other traits is that I am very conscientious and so I always get everything done on time and to the best of my ability.

I love having fun with Zoƫ and will play silly games with her just to be able to hear her laugh. She laughs at the silliest of things. Her favourite game at the moment is for me to sing the beginning of a song and she will finish the last word for me.

We have 3 songs:
The Numberjacks with the last word being WAY
Postman Pat with the last word being CAT
Balamory with the last word being KNOW

She likes to tease me by singing the wrong last word. So she will end the Balamory song with CAT and then she will giggle uncontrollably. Her laughter is like the warmest, brightest light being turned on and I love bathing in that glow.

If I am tired I will either be very grumpy or get very silly and will sing and do stupid stuff all day. My work mates have got used to me by now and just ignore me.
If I am in a crowd of people, then I like to entertain – not sure if I am any good at it or am even funny but I always enjoy myself trying!!!

I will be 35 on Friday so maybe it is time to GROW UP!!!

Nah, don’t think I will bother!
