While the rest of us were struggling to work last Monday week, lamenting the passing of yet another legendary weekend, The Diary hears the entire staff of Mother were safely tucked up in their beds. Their generous bosses decided to give the 45-strong team the day off.
Why, The Diary hears you ask? Partner Stef Calcraft explains: “We believe our fantastic staff, who work so hard throughout the year, deserve Mother’s Day off – for the obvious reason. “Mother’s Day was on the Sunday so we gave them the next day off. It happens every year and we want to show our appreciation”.
But spare a thought for the poor receptionist who spent the whole day fielding calls at the company’s empty offices. The Diary feels she deserves the Mother of all pats on the back.
