    He then comes in and ambushes us by chirping for attention, which results in an absent minded hand being lowered to cat height to provide fuss, followed by cries of anguish as it meets sodden fur.

    He also enjoys being toweled off vigorously before going back out in it again...

    Deep joy.

    And if you think a wet hen gets a bit irritated, just imagine what a wet parrot is like.


    Wet hens don't get irritated, they just look like drowned rats until they dry up.

    No WFH either? Ho hum, suck it up. I treat early darts and WFH as a bonus when I'm working away.

    Every instinct is telling me to walk but I'm trying to keep my professional head on and just endure until the end date.
    Lovely. It's the snotty snorts that I really hate. I hand them a pack of tissues (which they seem to think should be used for blocking the toilets).

    Been sent to a room with 10 desks but nobody else is in the room - I am in solitary confinement for the duration.

    I thought that's how you Lizards liked it?

    Shouldn't you be out basking in it or something?

    Though the end of term is mid July.
    What do you think of this years crop, will they pass or will some be back for summer re-sits?
