Music mostly on my itunes this evening; Florence and the machine

This weekend has passed by too quickly mainly due to working shifts in the day job yesterday morning and an epic thirteen hour shift today. Sadly my highlight up until a couple hours ago was the delivery of my new desk (I thought it was exciting, my colleagues however just thought I was sad and need perhaps to get out a bit more - not really sure I can disagree with them on that count!) regardless I thought I would share a picture of said desk below!

I am aware that it is only me that is excited, but it is a very welcome relief from sitting on my bed or the floor with laptop on lap or sitting behind very small computer desk I now have space! In celebration I sat down at my newly polished desk at 1730hrs and didn't look at the clock until 2130hrs...I now have my eye on (thanks to my very lovely American friend with a severe Ikea addiction) a very lovely chair that will soon be joining my lovely desk - I then have visions of never leaving my room, haven't quite figured out how I explain that to my boss but I am sure I can come up with something creative!
This evening I returned home from work feeling a little tired only to be greeted by an amazing message on my phone, I have been sworn to secrecy at the moment and I have to say the message doesn't even directly affect me but it made me very happy and as soon as I've had the embargo lifted I intend to share so watch this space... 
As I sit here this evening I have opted on listening to music through headphones, they are serving two purposes to limit the outside distractions from housemate who is currently speaking very loudly while on skype and at the same time coughing (it is possible he has man flu, although from brief interactions in the kitchen earlier it is more likely to have resulted from the excessive consumption of alcohol while at the pub watching the rugby yesterday). The second reason to drown out the song that has hijacked my brain for most of the day. The song in question is currently being used in the new o2 advert and I've put a link here for you to use and see if you can resist the urge to sing along!

If you do, you are stronger than me, I have a feeling it's going to be there for a while - perhaps I just need to find something else to replace it with? Suggestions gratefully received.


  1. Congrats on your new desk! As for the song, my suggestion would be to keep your headphones on! :)

  2. Thank you! I sat here until I realised it was 0230hrs! Glad I'm on a late start at the day job today. The song is still in my head!
    Have a good dayx
