Day 2: #100HappyDays = Work.
I work in a law firm that is extremely prestigious and steeped in history and is pegged as the oldest law firm in London.
It is incredibly old fashioned in some respects and yet is totally current and up to date in others with making sure everyone obtains a good work/life balance and in creating a fun culture to work in.
We have all sorts of perks going on, a few examples of which include a doctor that comes in once a week; monthly firm-wide themed social lunches; various clubs you can join (sports, language, music) and tons of extra curricular events you can attend, which are often paid for by the firm. Booze included!!
The best thing about my place of work though is that I LOVE my work colleagues!!! To say I laugh my arse off every day would be an understatement. I literally cry with laughter at least 3 times a week and the set of women I work with are like sisters, aunts and surrogate mothers to me and we even all socialise together outside of the office! The fellas are all complete and utter gentlemen too and have always got my back and look after me on a night out.
Seriously. We all work incredibly hard and suffer from extreme bouts of frantic stress and pressure, but we all keep each other sane and I sometimes think that going to work really shouldn’t be this much fun!!
