My Glamorous Life

Outside my office today:

Olympic rowers
Olympic canoeists

Police helicopter
Police snipers
Police on motorbikes
Police in patrol cars
Police checking access route

Soldiers with sharp haircuts
Sniffer dogs

Operator for road barriers
Operator for traffic lights
Operator for personnel scanner

Security guards in yellow
Olympic assistants in purple

(and three men from Facilities
wearing extra long thick gloves
trying to extract dead rats
from the air conditioning system
because I complained about the smell)


  1. I think those Facilities fellows are showing TRUE Olympic spirit! (Ewww. I hope the air quality is much improvd!)

  2. Alice, I just don't of you as that hard core. Hyacinth bowls and a fluffy soft beds and that sort of thing only, no snipers. (or rats)

  3. It's the rats that make the story, as you well know.

    I made a cup of espresso for Philippe Petit!

  4. I wonder if they will scan the rats on the way out (assuming the long gloved facilities blokes manage to snag them).

  5. Lawks! All I can see is zhu zhu hamsters and a couple of hollyhocks.

  6. I am glad to see you are taking your duties as official rower spotter seriously. Regular reports are needed, as you know.

    ...and a partridge in a pear tree!

  8. Goodness me, dead rats! I hope they have been moved.

    Not liking the sound of all the military and police things.

    beats having Legionellas though

  10. presumably if they had been waterrats they would have been in keeping with the aquatic types strolling about the place

  11. Snort! (Coffee on keyboard.)


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
