Merrion House is a dull, grey, concrete monstrosity that is just as grim on the inside as it is on the outside. Working on the 10th (also the top) floor brings with it the additional challenges of being hotter than other floors during the summer and colder than the other floors during the winter. However, we do have one advantage over all the other floors and that is the view.
Today being an overcast day, the view wasn’t at its best, but when the sun breaks through on an early morning it catches the buildings, covering them in a beautiful golden light that makes the city shine. Every now and then, we also get a cracking sunset.
The view from the photocopier has allowed us to watch the Leeds Arena grow from wasteland to concrete shell to 1970’s toilet styled shell. (It looks brilliant inside allegedly – its just a shame about the outside.)
Sometimes being on the top floor isn’t so bad.
