    I'd hate that. I'd hate to be anything other than tethered to my desk and my pc form morning to evening, week in week out, from one end of the year to the other, year after year.

    It boggles my mind how anyone doesn’t go postal from having to work with the same people and in the same place, every damn weekday

    If you like the people then seeing them every day is a positive, right? I miss (some of) the people I used to see every day before I started working from home fulltime

    Yesterday I spilled a full mug of coffee at my desk leaving a massive stain. This morning I did the decent thing and bought carper cleaner. Dr Beckmann's Carpet Cleaner, highly recommended.

    5 stars. Would buy again.


    Weirdly, no one commented as I got on my knees and started cleaning, like it was the most natural thing in the world.

    I spent half of christmas getting lamped with my boss. There's a pool of around 80/90 and only 2-3 i'd climb into the ceiling space to avoid, the rest are pretty sound.

    By cunningly claiming a load of bananas from the complimentary fruit basket at the start of the week and raiding the kitchen for bread I haven't had to buy lunch all week. #winningatlife

    I just bought a salad and the cucumbers and eggs are actually frozen with a sheet of ice on them.
