This chippy is right up the street from our flat, and despite the fact that it was apparently named in "Courvoisiers book of the best fish & chip shop" (?) we've never been there. One of these days we'll have to go.
You can see Olga's reflection in the left-hand door. She's probably looking at me and thinking, "AGAIN with the stopping!"
My boss tweeted this picture of me at my newly truncated desk at work. Perhaps this will help those of you having trouble picturing what I was saying about my desk being cut in half. The desk used to be a half-circle. Now it's a quarter-circle, and all that space to the right of me that used to be taken up by desk is now open floor. We're going to get a table or something for that area.
Apparently our general philosophy these days is to move away from built-in furniture and toward more portable items and "flexible space." I hope my quarter-circle gets to stay, though, because I like it, and I'd really rather not work at some rolling stand-up pedestal. Besides, the book return -- which you can't see in the picture above -- is built into the desk at the far left.
Anyway, it's been a crazy week of preparation, but I think we're pretty much ready for students to return. I still have today (an orientation day for new students) to get a few more things done before school officially begins on Tuesday. Monday, fortunately, is a holiday, and Dave's sister and her husband are arriving for a visit beginning on Sunday.
