Crunch!

I love Autumn. Out for a walk today in the fine weather to escape the pressure-cooker environment of the Department I reverted back to my childhood for a few minutes.

I found a walkway carpeted in brown, red and yellow leaves. Giving thanks for abscissic acid and its delightful aesthetic effects I skipped, kicked and crunched my way along the path, forgetting for several minutes the drudgery of the job.

Autumn days don't get much better than today - at least where I am.

Returning to work having put my sober EO face back on, I was in fine form for roaring filthy abuse at errant clerical officers.

All in all, a good day. And I don't care who saw me fannying about with the leaves either.

What is it about civil servants leaving to become poets and writers and such? Next thing you'll be the new Flann O Brien or Máirtín ó Direan! :)

It's the plan... if any publisher out there wants to pay me a large advance my contact email's on my profile. Six figure sum only please.
