Sorted

I am pleased to report that I managed to get through a day of work yesterday without anybody dying (that I know of).

I have also pretty much finished writing the first day of the course that I am running and have prepared all of the materials to go with it. Just the second day to sort now…

At work I sit on my own. I am only a few feet from my team, but when we selected the desks I left it to them to sit together and then took what was left, which I knew would mean sitting on my own. Anyway, another team is coming over to join us and one of them phoned me today to ask if she could sit next to me. It was like being back at school, but in a nice way, given that I hated school. I think some of it is that she doesn’t want to sit near her own manager, but I shall take the compliment and look forward to being less lonely.

TF - I hope you have a good weekend too.

Nobody dying is always a good way to end the week.

Seriously, doesn't sound like you had the best week. Have a great weekend, and I hope next week is better.

Sarah - It is not something that is normally so overtly worthy of note!

I hope you have a good weekend too.

Getting through a day of work without anybody dying? Goodness - well done! And sitting on one's own can have certain advantages. I know that I get far more work done when nobody else is in my room...

CoatMan - it certainly felt like a victory given the higher than average death toll in my office this week!

I quite like sitting on my own but am pleased that the person who is going to sit next to me is nice and friendly.

I must say I prefer sitting on my own, but alas not the case for me. Saying that though, I barely spend 33% of my time at my desk.

Kahless - I think I get a lot more done sitting on my own. But one of the reasons I go to work (apart from the money obviously...) is that I like the interaction with people.
