Well Done

My twin sister works for a big company and today she has just won the " colleague of the year award"
How good is that.....?
In this age of targets, figures, and profits, she has quietly supported her fellow workers by never throwing a sickie, completing her work diligently, changing her shifts at the last minute and always supporting the high flyers with being in store, on time and with a smile on her face.
Congratulations Janet......
The oldest worker in store...and now, obviously one of the best

  3. What a good brother you are. There is something to be said of your sister's work ethic. It is rare in this day and age and very commendable.

  8. Congrats to your sister. It is always nice to be recognized. Sometimes the ones that work the hardest are the last ones to be recognized and awarded!

  21. Add my congratulations to that too John. It must be nice to have a twin sister -are you identical (it's tempting to add 'I hope not' but that would be a bit unkind to you and she obviously has your caring nature).

  23. Grafters who just get on with things - turn up every day and don't complain - rarely get recognition. Well done Janet and congratulations on your popular new reading series - the gripping "Janet and John" books. Isn't John naughty!
