Friends, Fowl, Neighbours, lend me your drizzle cake....

Good afternoon and welcome to a fun and action packed edition of the most read catering equipment blog on the web* Good to hear our compatriot Mr N is enjoying family life, if not that, probably just the 2 week sabatical from working life. Apparently in his spare time he is surfing the web looking at supplier websites such as Lincat, Parry, AHT, Blue Seal and Hobart just to try and keep himself in tip top selling condition for his return to work next Friday. At the hub today business continues to flow in as fast as Fryers, Microwave Ovens, Multi Decks and Char Grills fly out of the warehouse. Its a merry go round in our warehouse and make no mistake. Its Official! Mr G is now warm for the first time since October 2008. The reason for this? The moaning old man has installed a 3kw fan heater under his desk and has it pointing at the lower half of his body. Mr A, the boss, is livid. The sparks of anger in his eyes flash as quickly as the red neon on the electric meter every time the thermostat kicks in. I can now for the first time in our new premisses go and pretend to scrape paint from the woodwork and make gags about Mr G trying to burn the paint off. Never let it be said there's a dull moment at Ward's. Fun item of the day goes to the flying rooster my better and infintely more attractive half bought me for my birthday. The hush and quiet busyment of the office is being punctuated at regular intervals by the crowing noise of the rubber propelled fowl being fired at great speed. Walls, heads and coffee mugs beware. A big thank you goes out to one of our new neighbours on Centurion Park. Mrs C is one of Mr N & I's closest friends and works for York Hospitals NHS Trust who have recently moved in next door. This fine lady has just delivered a large slice of freshly baked Lemon Drizzle Cake to my desk. Bitter, sweet, fluffy and light. You can tell it was baked with Be-Ro flour. Had I been stupid enough to throw it to the ducks, no way would they have sunk. Ginger cake next week please Mrs C! Must go, there are bratt pans to sell! * I made that fact up.
