The things that made me happy today were:
We have -- hurrah -- hit that critical point in present buying where you suspend critical judgement and just get on and buy stuff. This generated four presents in one and a half hours, which is a sight better than the roughly four presents a month we've been managing up to now. We have now bought everything that absolutely must be posted before the last posting date, and I think with a reasonable degree of confidence that the things will all be delivered by Saturday.
I have moved offices, which I have mixed feelings about, but the new space has actual windows. It also means I join the Victoria line at Green Park or Victoria rather than Oxford Circus, which doubles the proportion of return journeys I will spend sitting down.
Crimbo card design is finished, and at least somewhat printed. I do not have enough coated inkjet card or envelopes. Must rectify this, but still.
