We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

It's that time of year again when the Acquisitions Team (both of them) do their damnedest to order, receive and invoice half the year's stock in five weeks flat. As we don't have electronic ordering all the orders have to be printed (besides which, the auditors require that a printed and signed copy of every order be placed in a filing cabinet upstairs).

Imagine, then, their surprise when Tilly potters up and removes the ink cartridge from their printer. "They need it upstairs," she says.

It is quickly made clear to her that she should put it back.

Apparently there are no ink cartridges in stock. Which prompts us to wonder just what it is she's doing when she's spending hours at a time locked in the stationery cupboard. I'm not sure I'm willing to speculate on the subject.
