    "Unfortunately our area has no internet connection".... That's definitely the best place for vacation :))

    Katerinka12 exactly the perfect place for vacation. No guest has complained about WiFi, although booking is always sending me messages urging me to have WiFi support Netflix etc.

    Katerinka12 What you wrote is very close to what the artist told me. Just to be clear, those are not fossils of jellyfish but etchings on a flat piece of stone. But I just saw something he had made and asked him to make something for me. He appeared some weeks later with this slab of stone and he started asking me about the place in the house where I feel most stressed. I told him that it was my study over my computer. He had called this work ' serenita' which is Italian for serenity. He drilled holes into the wall and hammered in thick iron grips so now it is a permanent fixture. Jellyfish are calming when you look at them in real life floating gently in the water and they go wherever the current takes them...

    I am so impressed with the whole story, from A to Z. Excellent work, deep thoughts, psychology behind it, right place and knowledge... Wherever the current takes them... Power of now.

    Hi All,

    Wow, that actually makes a lot of sense @ the Jellyfish story. I have one of those simple  flip-over Motivational calendar thingies on my desk... I should replace it with a Lava Lamp. The shapes in the Lava Lamps is very -jelly-fish like. Will calm everyone down. 

    Haven't had time to keep my co-workers away from my desk, but I will send a photo soon!

    Your workplace looks like a busy hostel! 😂 I am surprised, that you can give so meaningful replies and motivation (may be by moving away your coworkers). But seriously, how can anyone work in such conditions and still be motivational (ok, thanks to that calendar), have clear mind and deep analysis?

    I would just imagine Joey closing his door and hiding from guests in His own space. The silence is needed for proper thoughts and isn't that our guests pay us for?

    michael beeston Sorry if it is a stupid question but what is a ' meet and greet'? Is it when you pick up a guest from the airport?

    Hi again Joey....we normally meet guests at the apartment ( meet and greet in Australia) and show them through the complex and tell them where to go for a great stay BUT sometimes like in the picture..I picked up the guest from the airport ( about 30 klms away) He is a regular and has stayed almost six times and he is a car enthusiast so .......................He asked if I could pick him up from the Airport in the Mercedes..no problems and I charged him Euro 50 one way..............

    Hi all!

    So, I couldn't keep my co-workers away from my desk but today was a special occassion. It's my Birthday! So the amazing people I share an office with (we are 6 ladies) made up my desk and I thought it would be the best time to snap the photo, because you can't really see how messy the desk is with all the Bday Decorations!

    About the space: I have a PC and a Laptop (different departments that I work for), the coffee station is in front of me which is a plus. When I Have to see clients, it happens down at reception. 

  • Happy birthday Leandri!

    Is that an arctic fox strapped to your chair? 😁

    Thanks Zolt!

    HAHAH! It's Technically Angel wings. But how Fearsome would an arctic fox make me look? No one would ever ask me for help. 

    :-D

    Hey katerinka - best wishes- as you and I are similar in a way. We do not give sterile impersonal responses but we are human and include our personal experiences which the partner forum should be all  about!!

    OH - It was Leandri I should have been congratulating.... so many women, so little time. 

    PS there is not a sexist bone in me - I was trying to make (a not very good) joke.

    Hi Forum!

    What a response, thanks everyone! (Also my first time Hijacking a post hehe)

    Joey , :-P We like your twisted sense of humor. I think you keep a lot of it in, probably because you stare at the jellyfish thing before you post. Thanks for my well wishes!

    fluff , make it two then you can join! Just beyond the wall in front of my desk there are two very nice lounge chairs. Let's make it a cigar lounge. Thanks for my bday wishes 

    Katerinka12 , Appreciated! I must say it was one Epic day!

    M Adamopoulou , thanks! :-P I get the feeling those wings are going to come up a lot in the forum now. 

    Have a Stunning weekend everyone! 

    BTW: I accepted the challenge and now we are still waiting for some other work spaces to be shared :-)

    Leandri what is it with some women who can read me like a book? :-P And my sense of humour is not twisted - it is wonky :-P

    We can't ask how old you are now, can we?. See the inequality? If it was a man we'd all be asking him. But anyway I wouldn't give Leandri more than 25 - I can almost imagine her giggling like a school girl :-P 

    Oh and you have a batman mug - you're geekier than I thought. I love that as I am a huge geek :-) But I have never let on what I am geeky about in this forum - that is your next quest Leandri and Katerinka!
