Our at work cleaner is currently in Las Vegas getting married.

So the kind folks here got her a card and are clubbing together to buy her a wedding gift.

The deadline for writing in the card was today, so dutifully my colleague and I climbed the stairs to the office and added our names to the card.

Folks had written messages like “Lang may yer lum reek” (a traditional Scottish greeting) and “All the best!”.

I wrote:

God Bless, Gareth. PS Our bin is full!

Sadly there wasn’t enough room to also mention the number of plastic bottles piled up next to the bin ready for recycling.

She’ll find out soon enough though!
