That is the noise the doorbell at work makes. It is loud and high-pitched and lasts for quite a long time. The front door is locked so whenever you hear eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you need to leap up (ahem) and go answer the door. Usually to people who sweep in without a by-your-leave, the usual comment is 'tut' and sigh because they have had to wait a few seconds for the door to be opened for them by polite, smiling staff.
It's Monday morning. There are two meetings. Sum total of about 100 people. Who all arrive separately. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! And people wonder why Monday's are not good days lol
I had a hot cross bun this morning. Disappointing. The hot cross buness is not as ness as it used to be. I'm not sure why - the tops don't seem as sticky, the dough isn't as doughy and the spices are just not there. I used to love a hot cross bun, now I think I'll just avoid their mass-produced staleness and have a nice home-made fairy cake. Ahhh the fairy cake. So simple, so quick, so delightful in its appearance and so tasty in the eating. It really is the princess of all cakes - they make you smile to make them, decorate them and eat them. You even smile in the memory of them. Happy cakes indeed.
The sun is shining today and even though it is a Monday and even though my thought process is being disturbed every one and a half minutes or so with a high pitched eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that smile is still in place and I think that is a great sign of what the day, and possibly even the week ahead has to offer :)
