Dollas Journal entry 14

The Dollas office

We finally have an office. No more lounging about with laptops in the living room, still wearing our pajamas. No times have changed. A special space has been identified and decorated. Pajamas are still permitted, a place for lounging incorporated. But from this hour henceforth, we will be doing it like the professionals we are, in an office.

The need for office space was identified at the beginning of the year. We decided the storeroom will work perfectly. We sort of started getting it ready and then…lockdown. Instead of using this time to fix up our office space, we began a vegan meal club and became stallholders at a market in Walkerville.

With level two announced smokes and alcohol being legal once more, Pa Dolla’s business got back on track and he tackled the storeroom. A brave man. It was filled with all the odds and ends, bric-a-brac as the fancy English folk call it. For a guy who is not fond of Tetris, his stacking is superb. ‘n Boer maak ‘n plan. On occasion, Giggeldolla would take him coffee and cheer him on.

It took longer than anticipated, considering we ‘started’ with the office in February, maar aanhouer wen. Dollas now has a flowing, functioning office space. Dankie Pa Dolla.

Giggeldolla is lending a hand – cheerleading is not my only talent. Using my newly acquired sewing skills I am making seat covers and ensuring that all can see Dollas was involved with the set up of the office by adding a heap of scatter cushions – cause only girls think to add scatter cushions. It is still a work in progress but we feel very official now. All grown up.

Dollas To-do list for the day:

□ Find more scatter cushions (there has to be some shoved in a closet somewhere)

□ Figure out a new filing system for office

□ Download Tetris (I miss that game)
