Well the title sounds good but can I withstand the temptation not to undertake any work , which means not checking emails ?
Is there such thing as a holiday in the traditional sense , in that when you were away you were away and everybody accepted that as an immutable fact ?
Today I saw a piece of red tape that makes the stupid ID regulations we have to tolerate look like child's play. This particular piece of red tape is part of the NHS's requirements to ensure employees are who they are.
