On a cold...

...and frosty morning.

For the last couple of mornings it has been bright, sunny, frosty and very chilly. The thing is though, the cold doesn't seem so bad when the sun is out.

This was a shot I took from the DLR (Dockland Light Railway) platform at West Ham...
...normally the "O2" (the dome in the background with the pylons sticking up like the spikes on a crown) is perfectly clear but Wednesday morning there was a haze.

Strange day Wednesday.

After a bright and cheery start, I arrived to find there was no water supply at the office and the senior managers were awaiting confirmation from the contractors as to how long it was likely to take to get the supply restored (we have been having problems for over a week now but this was the first time everything came to a halt).

By 11.30am the advice was to let staff go home.

I had a teleconference scheduled so I was hanging around to take part in that before heading home when the fire alarm went off - some idiot left toast unattended in the toaster on one of the upper floors and there was smoke billowing from the kitchen on that floor. With very few staff left in the building it was a very small gathering at the muster area but upon return we were advised that the water was fixed.

It was lovely and quiet in the office as there were only 5 of us on our floor (normally around 140). It is amazing what you can get done without distraction LOL

I wonder what today will hold for us..................................................................................

Sounds like a day in our office...had a very similar thing here a couple of weeks ago. Love the pic of the 02. I work at Canary Wharf and really keep meaning to bring my camera to work so I can snap some pics of the area..
