DCM - Working 9-5

Well you got me singing Dolly Parton all day long today!!! I know this very well, although technically my hours are 7.30-3.30!!
Great dare this week & a really easy one.
Use office supplies, Jo said.
I adore office nic- naks seeing as though I do spend half my waking life in an office. I mustn't complain, as I actually got my dream job after waiting 19 years!! Yes, I wanted to work with computers & I wasn't allowed to do computer studies at school as the lessons fell on the same period as my maths. So, at the tender age of 27, I took myself off to Adult Education classes & got three years worth of qualifications. It took just 8 more years to get the job, but it was worth it. I might whinge sometimes about the hours, masses of work etc...everyone does, but it is great to be working as there were a few years I was ill & unable.
Items used; Graph paper (Free from a website) Staples. Paperclip. Mini bulldog clip & Ive used mini brads as noticeboard push pins (the real thing just a tad too sharp!)
The other paper used was K&Co. Dymo tape for the greeting.
