Spring (sort of) Break!
Though usually pretty (falsely) modest we are feeling
pretty pleased with ourselves over here at Impact as we have
simultaneously timed our office move to the seasonal calendar and
proven a proverbial saying to be true - all in a day's work!
Spring is here and it happens to be coinciding with our own
metaphorical Spring of sorts. Our new beginning has begun and we
are settled into our new office and are experiencing the '"spring
is in the air" feeling in full force. We think this feeling of
heightened energy proves that old adage "change is as good as a
holiday" to be pretty accurate. The change of scenery from the West
End to Farringdon has created a definite buzz in the Impact office
and is making us feel a little like we are on a holiday. Don't be
concerned, we are still working pretty hard and until someone shows
up in flip flops, a sarong and sporting a tan in the shade of Rouge
on Fire there is no need to raise the alarm. For now we shall
adjust office chairs as close to sun lounger degrees of recline as
they will go, grab another cocktail (Thursday is the new Friday and
2pm is the new 5pm) and tell you all about how our change is as
good as a holiday.
Firstly, like on any good holiday we are doing a
quite a bit of exploring. We are enjoying getting to know our new
area and are like kids in a candy store with all the new places to
try. One thing we have discovered in our exploring is the true
density of jewellers on our doorstop; we can now fulfil all our
diamond and precious metal needs in a lunch hour, so convenient.
Seriously though we may just go and buy that Rolex, I mean
splurging is customary on holiday and when on Hatton Garden do as
Hatton Gardeners do.
Secondly, our new location means that some of us are lucky
enough to have cut down our travel time by half - but what to do
with that extra hour a day? World domination? Needlecraft? No. The
answer is sleep. Just like on holiday some of us are enjoying a bit
of a lie in.
Thirdly, a few of us have noticed we are hungrier in the
new office. Could it be because our bodies are subconsciously
preparing and encouraging us to try all the new lunch places? Or is
it because our office is so much bigger than our old office that we
are expending more energy walking from one side of it to the other?
Whatever the reason for our increased appetites, as we do when on
holiday, we are giving ourselves permission to treat
