As offices go, we’re quite a close knit bunch of people. I mean, we’re not picking out wallpaper patterns or anything, but we do enjoy each others company. From time to time we like to descend upon the streets of West Norwood and Balham to have what we like to call “team building” exercises – these usually consist of a few swift pints and a burger. Last weekend we decided to take the exercise outside the city of London (variety is the spice of life, after all) and set up camp on our MD’s family farm.
Now an IWOOT camping trip just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t bring along some outdoorsy type gadgets for the team to play with, so that’s exactly what we did. Unfortunately the weather didn’t hold out long enough for us to use all of them but the ones we did looked absolutely stunning in the summer twilight. Luckily, Jimbo had recovered enough from his “Rolerball Misadventure” (which I still maintain had nothing to do with me, despite the wealth of circumstantial evidence) to shoot some footage of the Love Heart Flying Lanterns ascending into the night sky.
The next morning the weather completely turned on the IWOOT campers making most of us (myself included) scarper back to the big smoke to lie in big comfy beds, away from the damp and disappointing weather. There were some hardcore campers left behind who were determined to enjoy the days activities, whatever the weather. The Microlighting I understand, but I’m still somewhat puzzled by the sheep shearing. . .
