They make it with a sickly sweet syrup and there doesn't seem to be any caffeine in it. It is not the same as Starbuck's. Not even close. Next time, take 5 extra minutes and get the real thing.

The Cajun chicken sandwich from the usual sandwich shop by Farringdon station was too spicy for me. Lunch mark II is salmon sandwich from EAT.

I've just got off the phone with the letting agents for my flat. They say that the notice period is a month from the rent day as stated in the contract. The rent day is 24. So I have a choice between giving notice for 24 August or 24 September.

That's a bit of a bummer because I'd prefer 24 August but I've just extended my contract till the end of August. So in that case, either GT let me go a week early or they let me work from home, i.e. Cheltenham for the last week. It would also mean I'd have to clean out the flat in the 5 weekends between getting back from my holiday and 24 August. With Kieron's help that's not impossible.

On the other hand if I go for 24 September, I'd have a lot more time. I'll have to talk to Kieron and see what he says before I make up my mind. There's a possibility that I could negotiate with the landlord too. He's fairly easy-going.

The letting agent also said that when I send them the notice, they'll respond with a letter that tells me all about what's required of me wrt cleaning the flat, handing over keys etc.

To Do
  • Ask cleaning people how long do the carpets need to dry after the shampooing before they can be walked on?
  • With the 24 as the hand-over date, when would they recommend that they come in?
  • Put outstanding tasks from Moleskin and LJ into Life Balance
  • Make print-out of tasks to be done before holiday and put in Moleskine

Don't take nose drops before going to bed. You won't be able to sleep, even if you take valerian too.

Don't buy a tall soya chai tea latte after 4pm. Now that you haven't been doing caffeine regularly for years, the effect lasts for nearly 12 hours.

Update: The entry Open letter to CEOs, COOs, CIOs and CFOs across the corporate world was great. Depressing to anyone who has ever been at the sharp end of the behaviours Pamela Slim describes but still a great read.
