Working at home and other things

On Saturday I took myself of to Staples (office supply store) and treated myself to a new chair for my desk. Up until now I've been using a metal folding thing... which after about an hour makes my bottom numb, and after several hours pretty much cripples me. Given the amount of time I spend at my desk these days a good chair seemed an essential purchase. The chair I chose has a fabric seat (so I can sit in shorts or whatever and not have my legs stick to fake leather or whatever) and a delightful mesh back. I love mesh back chairs... soft enough for comfort but firm enough for support. The chair adjust up and down and has a tilting seat and armrests. Perfect!

This could not have been more timely. On Saturday night I fell down the stairs. Yes, it is true that I had consumed a few glasses of wine which added to my general unsteadiness led to a delightful slip from near the top all the way to the bottom. I bruised the bottom of my back - thank goodness for the new chair, I think the old one might have done for me altogether.

Sadly I've been working today. Shortened Friday (due to the doctor's appointment) and shortened week (due to the Bank Holiday) means that there just isn't enough time to get everything I need to get done finished. Thank goodness, again, for the new chair!
