It's A Dog Life
Karen Griffin - Monday, August 13, 2012
I am sure many people think they have the best job in the world - but we really do! But how do you clarify BEST? Somewhat subjective . . .but here goes:
Our machines need regular TLC too, so, as in previous years, they are heading up the M1 to be serviced, whilst we are heading South for a welcome break.
- Every day is completely different and totally unpredictable
- We all have a certain amount of autonomy over our day and the order we do things in
- We can sneak off to watch the Olympics or bop around to our ipods whilst in the workshop
- We get to see and work in sunshine, rain, snow etc
- We definitely have the nicest customers (perhaps this should be higher up the list)
- Some jobs are really challenging, so we are never bored
- But best of all for me personally. . .I get to spend the day with my dog, Murphy, even if he does get under our feet all the time! He likes nothing better than to drag out our pile of recycled materials (destined as packaging) and make a cosy bed.
Griffin Designs will be closed Monday 20 August until Thursday 6 September inclusive, when we all return in full working order and fully refreshed, machine and man respectively.
