"Come back," texted McColleague. "I'm bored".
"Aw," I replied. "I'll be back soon and will entertain you with all my holiday snaps!"
It is most gratifying to know I have been missed during my absence. I'd left a locum in my stead, in the hope most of the staff and volunteers wouldn't notice I'd gone, but McColleague, of course, can not be fooled.
"Been ok but not the same without you," her latest missive reads, "lots to tell."
Lordy. As soon as I'm back up to speed I'll copy you all in!
