Going Underground

            Waterloo Station is quite unique in the fact that it has an actual working elevator so those with mobility issues have access to and from the tube. It is not only people in wheelchairs who need a helping hand, as mothers with buggies and travellers carrying heavy suitcases find …

You Can Count On Us

              This sign looks depressingly familiar, doesn’t it? It has been attached to the elevator for about a month now and there seems to be absolutely no sign of progression. You have asked reception what is happening as regards lift maintenance but they cannot disclose any info as they …

Never Admit Defeat

            “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.” Last year, Manchester United suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao, and trudged off the pitch, disappointed and disheartened. Unfortunately, it was not their lucky day in any …

Space Invaders

  We have all encountered them. Those annoying types who read over your shoulder as soon as you start to read the paper; people who take up all of the elbow space when you are at the cinema; individuals putting their feet up on the back of your seat when you are on the bus; …

Playing pranks on your work friends is all part and parcel of working in a large office space. You steal their staplers, nick their pens and move their seats; all in the name of fun, of course! It is never your intention to hurt their feelings, as you just want a little bit of respite …

This is the Modern Way

  If you have planned a luxury break away in the City then what do you look for? Do you want to stay in a plush, opulent hotel or a small guest-house tucked away down a winding cobbled road? Would you prefer to chill out, relax and unwind or drag your reluctant partner around the …
