Early morning

In my new job there is a rota for working late and early shifts so that the phones and email are covered all the time. While I’ve worked a few lates so far (a rather pointless 9:30 to 18:00) today is my first day working an early; A rather more pointful 7:00 to 15:30. And although I feel I could do with another hour worth of sleep, I actually quite like it. I work best in the morning anyway, it’s nice and quiet in the office and I get to go home early. Result!

And now, the news:

I found this interesting, especially when I sorted the table by Total Numbers 2001. The result? After the expected India and Pakistan in first and second places, what’s the third place? Germany! That’s unexpected! There are more Germans living in the UK than there are Caribbeans! Even more, even, than there are South African and Australian barstaff combined! (Okay, maybe not, they’re transient employees, not UK residents, but that doesn’t sound as impressive. Now shush! Whose blog is this anyway?!)

Anyway, I though it was interesting…

(It’s an invasion on the sly you know. It’s like the Angles, the Saxons and the bloody royal family all over again)
