There’s been a mouse infestation at work which has brought drama and excitement to the office. One moment we were happily tapping away at our keyboards, the next there were yelps and squeals as a mouse the size of a 10p piece ran across the floor. Mayhem ensued – people were either rushing away from the mouse or towards it in an attempt to capture or kill it. Plots to capture it alive and take it to countryside were hatched. Excuses to work in another building were put forward. There were discussions about wearing wellies to work. From all of this, I observed three distinct camps and have drawn them for your entertainment!
1. The exterminators
2. The Musophobes
3. The R.S.P.M
The kitchen at work is tiny. There’s an unwritten ‘cat swinging’ rule which stipulates one must NOT swing one’s cat, unless of course you no longer want it.
Peak times in the kitchen are challenging. The first hurdle is how many people dare to enter at the same time? Most people will stop at 5, which is far too many in my opinion. The hot water boiler is located on one side of the kitchen and the fridge on the other, which means there’s a high degree of toing and froing and an increased risk of scalding someone as you manoeuvre your coffee from one side to the other. The coffee-making flow is interrupted when more than one person is in the kitchen, but when there are five caffeine starved people, it’s like one of those sliding puzzles… or indeed an intricate modern dance!
This happens to me most Friday’s. Today was no different. I just can’t resist an invitation to be sociable!!!
Gosh, I really seem to be neglecting the cartoons whilst I focus on photography. However, I was recently commissioned to do a very specific cartoon that included a) Richard III and a reference to carparks b) an old people’s home c) a library of sorts, and errr d) Elvis! Don’t ask…
I’m on day 68 of my 365 photo project! Hooray!
I’ve been working on a cartoon commission for a friend these past few days, and while the pens were out I decided to do a photo/cartoon selfie.
