I have had a happy and productive day today and it has seen many things for which I am thankful.
I was actually proactive beyond work today. I try to be proactive at work but sometimes fail to be so when I get home again.
Anyhow today I did just that and extricated myself from my expired mobile phone contract with Orange. The firm I work for operates a staff scheme wherby one can receive 30% off contracts with O2 , so I am going to avail myself of that and take on a 16 gig I Phone 3Gs (whatever that means). This should all happen in the next ten days and I can get some shiny new kit and all the rather Guardian reading tendencies that might be bundled with it for free (though I will not ditch collar and tie, nor will I start to drink ridiculous coffees) .
I also had encounters with two friends from school today - one over lunch and a physical reality (Radders) and the other virtually and via a new thread started on Facebook a day or two back (thank you Neil 'Beanie' Broadstock; great to chat with you this week and renew dialogue and memories between BS5 and Phoenix, Arizona - US of A) .
Here's to I Phones, school pals, the working day and upcomng thoughts of Scotland (upon which more tomorrow) .
