Just been given two of our inaugural long service rewards; due another one next year…

Two solid metal bricks, representing 5 and 10 years of employment at Insights

The longest serving current employee’s 18 years, 4 years ahead of me.

I like those! When you have three you could make a little archway.

I'm considering bringing in my squashy foam bricks from home (there's one for each of our Insights colours, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red) and building something out of all six. Perhaps something I can use, like a Babbage engine... ;-)

Or a small model of Stonehenge...

Definitely a computational engine of some sort then!

Our team pooled (hence the team building day must have worked) their squishy blocks to make a tower (visible in the background here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/34387369@N03/3381939145/in/pool-animal-stacking) but we didn't know they also came in shiny!

Good tower! Looking at that I just realised I'll need to try to wangle some fresh bricks; the ones I have at home have got the old company logo on them.
