In the office until 9:30pm last night because I had to take a day off today due to builders being in the flat replacing all the doors and windows. Props to them for getting a big job done in 8 hours…most of which I had to stand outside in the cold, bundled up, and watching a neighbor’s dog who had simply been left behind as his owners didn’t seem to realise that replacing doors means…there are no doors to keep your dog in with. I’m terribly cranky.

Instagram find of the week.
