My first day at work

Today was my first day at work.  I felt really nervous first thing in the morning but I need not have worried.  Everyone was so nice to me, I got several breaks outside and our canteen served me a great lunch of tripe and kibble!  The only problem with a lunch like that is, it makes me want to doze off in the afternoon...

Anyway, my job description has been sorted out and I'm very happy.  It seems I will be very much a publicity member of the team and will help to maintain our company blogs.  Keep watching this space and follow us to see how I do over the next several months.
