Good Day, Bad Day →
Bad : I had to go into work today for a course which didn't finish until 5.30pm.
Good : Fortunately I remembered the late finish last night and so didn't go into the office for my usual 7am. I had a lie-in and got to work at 9 instead.
Bad: This meant the Tubes were packed because I was travelling in the rush hour both ways.
Good : But the walk to and from the station was wonderful, in freezing cold, but I was all wrapped up toasty warm.
Bad: I also have to go into work tomorrow for a meeting, but still have to try to fit in all my case work, which I can only usually manage if I work 3 days a week from home instead of just two this week.
Extra Good: The guy I sit next to is great fun and we have lots of laughs, most of it not related to work in the slightest. We are currently obsessed with the Ikea Monkey, which is probably a better topic of conversation than our general curiosity as to who will be the next celebrity outed as a nonce in Operation Yewtree
Super Extra Good: I popped over to see my old manager and team yesterday (who I worked with for 10 years) and they had cakes as a reward for meeting their target, from Didier's Patisserie
. I was invited to take one and chose this
, which is described on the website as "Sandwiched in a chocolate macaron, a centred layer of raspberry ganache surrounded with fresh raspberries and topped with vanilla mousseline cream." I found a little box in the office and managed to get it home unscathed, as my treat for today. But first is home-made fettucine bolognese.
