We don't mean family, friends or a good book (although we probably don't appreciate those enough). A friend (Marian, pictured on the right) recently told the world how much she takes 'Fairy liquid' for granted. ‘ It makes her life so much easier, it has so many uses, it's always been there throughout her life’..................you get the idea. We all thought she'd gone slightly mad.
Then our fantastic water boiler broke.
For anyone that has been on our courses you will know our hot-water-on-demand machine. At break time all the course delegates pile out of the training rooms & grab tea and coffee, fruit and biscuits. Quite often this is really needed by then (having been on some of the courses, I understand why!) Brains hurt from concentrating, fingers are sore from laminating, everyone wants to stop for a break.
As an office we love the machine too. No boiling kettles, no urns chugging away all day, just hot water on demand. It means we probably drink too much, but never mind. We completely took it for granted. Until it STOPPED working.
