I suppose it's going to be a late night again tonight -- Senior Management is treating me and some other high flyers within our organisation (don't ask me how I came to be on the list, because I haven't a clue) to an afternoon of go-karting followed by a lavish dinner in a top notch restaurant. We're leaving here in about half an hour so I'd better check if I have any outstanding business to attend to...or better yet, go to the bathroom and check my makeup.
Still, it's not all fun and games -- at the beginning of this week, the news reached us that one of our colleagues who'd gone on maternity leave a few weeks ago, had died during childbirth. She was only 40 years old. We were all shocked at the news. None of us had any idea that in this day and age, and in this part of the world, it was still possible to die like that.
