I stayed overnight in London for a work function, then off to see a friendly customer.
That went okay, other than the standard loneliness of hotel rooms.
In the morning I decided not to go to work but rather to ‘coffee shoppe’ my way over to the customer – dropping in to old and new places I knew on the way. First problem: it was raining and cold outside so I took to a inviting coffee chain place to see if I could get some work done. Second problem: loud, noisy and difficult to concentrate! Third problem: nose started bleeding (I’m taking asiprin long-term to hopefully deal with some cancer issues in my family – so that thins the blood and I am seeming to get more nose bleeds than normal).
How do you bleed peacefully when in the open surroundings of a coffee shop?
The good part was that my phone battery was still alive having not rechardged it overnight it should have been flat (I had a spare) and my computer one is still singing as you can see. Partly I wanted to do this to see if I can survive outside a big warm oganisation like my company, partly since I didn’t see the purpose of just rocking up to work to essentially sit in the same type of place there! It remains to be seen if I can make it in the turmoil and tussle of the surrounds of a ‘non-stop’ city life. And if my battery makes it! Off to find another place to sit.
