I spent two days in the office this week and got to hang out with a lot of lovely people. I spent a bunch of time collaborating on architecture diagrams for some future work – I think that this is where being in a shared physical space really works for me. Two days in the office is exhausting though, I’m going to have to slowly build up to being in for longer periods.
We finally booked a countryside trip with some friends and will be staying in a big house later in September. I was originally going to work for some of it, but have treated myself to a full week off. I’m excited about having a break but rapidly running out of annual leave.
I signed and sent the contract and deed to my solicitor for the flat I’m buying. Technically we can’t exchange yet because I’m still waiting for a formal mortgage offer (my broker thinks it should come through next week 🤞). I guess I should be pleased that they’re so fastidiously checking the fire safety documents.
We started watching American Horror Story. I’m not very good with horror, might be one to watch more slowly so there’s recovery time between episodes.
We went for dinner, a show, and drinks with Tammy and I had a great time. Co&Ko was delicious (Korean small plates), and I got a little too enthusiastic with the drinking and having long chats with strangers.
I paid for the fun with a horrible hangover and finding out that someone stole my debit card and withdrew £400 🤦 I’ve been refunded with a slapped wrist from my bank. The kind Lloyds fraud division employee reminded me that it’s important to be security-conscious and cover my pin when inebriated.
We rewatched all of Good Omens on our hangover day. I think it was even better on a second watch.
