Hacking at home

I got lots done on my portfolio articles today, and had a bit of a lie-in, too. I managed to get answers from the Forestry Commission and ASH are phoning me on Monday, allegedly. Exciting stuff! 

Not very exciting for you, however, so here is a picture of what this journalist wears to work from home: 

With shoes instead of slippers, to make it all a little less tragic
I think it's just about the right mix of 'professional' and 'probably not leaving the house'. It's important to be slightly smartly dressed as it improves your phone manner and helps you make your deadlines other people's problems. 

I also had cucumber sandwiches for breakfast and watched a bit of Snog, Marry, Avoid?. Is it just me, or have the people on that programme been getting steadily more terrified? And can't they have a little bit of variety in their counter-culture? Jenny Frost's roots are still defiantly hypocritical, too. 

That is sort of it for today. It was nice having a Friday off and doing some lazing about. 

Also, well done, Egypt. Just don't forget how the army being in charge of your government usually works out... 



  1. Oh, I wish I could work from home!

  2. Thank you, it was a present from someone who thought it looked too young on her. I guess that makes me childish...

    I wish I could work from home for money! Sadly, for that I have to use the British Transport System to haul myself into London and do office things. Not that I don't enjoy it, but doing it here would be awesome.
