Things are ramping up to crazy levels again, at work and elsewhere. Deadlines, side-projects, taxes (I actually managed to file weeks before the actual Canada Revenue deadline, for once!), unconference organisation, blogging, and trying to keep up with the twists and turns of the Canadian election campaign – no wonder I feel like I never have any time to play my violin!
The extra load means bringing work home more often than usual.
I’m actually really productive when working from home. I can play music through proper speakers rather than through headphones, make a pot of coffee instead of just a cup, and escape from the background noise and interruptions that run rampant at the office.
Oh, and I get to hang out with my cat!
She likes it when I work from home. She’s a very social beast. And she is determined not to meet the same fate as my poor neglected violin:
And when there’s no cat on my lap or my laptop, you can be sure there’s one sitting on whatever pieces of paper I’m trying to consult!
Right – just a few more weeks to fit everything into before my triumphant return to Toronto. Better start saving up – every Penny counts!
Oops, sorry – cat-like typing has been detected AGAIN.
