Huge welcome back to the office to the lovely Lois, beavering away in R&W once more after maternity leave following the birth of her second sproglet. Ruan joins big sister Livia and dad Gavin to bring the McPhillips family up to a traditional four.
Lois has already been back in the fray for nearly a month, working with Jim and Alison to recruit new staff, hold the fort on weekends, and answer your many and varied questions regarding the weird and wonderful world of camping.
Missed you, Lois!
Linen Queen and office birdwatcher Imogen Lansley snapped this picture of a family of pigeons nesting in a tree in the head office back garden.
Pigeon happy families, cute.
Imo maintains that she dislikes pigeons, but Newsblog sees no justification for this kind of avian prejudice. What do you want in Dunfermline, albatrosses?
Buon compleanno to Italy’s Supreme Over-Generalissimo Richie Devaney, seen here celebrating in the office with ….. something.
Errr …. Yule log? Giant roasted caterpillar?
Whatever it is, it’s not all going to fit in there at once.
