Here are the rules: Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share! Here goes my offering for this week – and I welcome your comments again!

The mountains of paperwork had reached mammoth proportions.
Deluged by policies, amendments, white papers and term sheets, her desk had disappeared long ago.
There was a knock at her office door.
“Oh come in, do. Please tell me you’re my new assistant…”
The air hung heavy with expectation, desperation even.
The timid girl entered, hovering near the door.
“S-sorry,” she said, her voice barely above a whisper. She darted forward, placed a Perspex sign on top of one of the paper towers and left – quickly.
Clare picked up the sign and rolled her eyes.
“‘Head of Environmental Policy’ indeed,” she muttered.
Oh, the irony.
