Necklaces and noodles

You know that phrase ‘dress for the job you want, not the job you have’?  Well, I’m rubbish at it.  Today I have been dressed in tracksuit bottoms, slippers and a snugly warm top, accessorised with a few soup stains.  In my defence, I have been working from home so nobody was aware of it through my 5 teleconferences or when I sent emails.  In the office, I’ve been trying to make more of an effort, but it’s a bit hit and miss.

This weekend I thought I’d try something new and crocheted a necklace.  (I don’t think this is as hideous as it sounds. ) This is it:


I rarely wear accessories so it was quite a novelty to put it on with a relatively smart outfit yesterday morning.  I did the usual work, grab food from canteen, eat food at desk while working, work a bit more, chat to people, wander around the office a bit…that sort of thing.

At 3pm I rubbed my eyes in an attempt to wake up a bit and discovered….part of a dried up noodle attached to the left side of my nose.  I’d eaten lunch at 12.  I’d also seen and spoken to quite a few people.

I’m not sure where that fits in ‘‘dress for the job you want, not the job you have’.  Maybe subconsciously I want to work in the food industry.  Maybe I just shouldn’t try the accessories route again.  Maybe I should work from home everyday, just to save some embarrassment. :o)

    I have often felt the same; that working from home would be best if for nothing else, than to save the embarrassment of having to be seen.

  2. This made me laugh in an explosive manner! I promise if I had seen it I would have told you! :)
