That might be sufficient for the time being… Nov 16, 2011

…, but who will provide for the tender loving care?

I think that's where the office cat/dog comes in.

Oh my gosh! I think I've lived much too long in Germany to know what that is...

Hahaha! That really cheered me up anyway! Now I can send the link to a couple of friends who are not all that experienced and often need encouragement (especially one who has a really critical and picky boss).

Dog and cat unhelpful! Nov 16, 2011

The dog provides moral support by snoring from the sofa behind me. The cat is generally unappreciative of my efforts and even loses the odd phrase and adds her own by walking over the keyboard (before being unceremoniously ejected)!

My boyfriend's eyes glaze over if I try to explain the details of what I'm doing, but he's very good at making encouraging noises. He has even been known to arrive with a bottle of bubbly to toast the launch or end of a big project! icon_eek.gif

Cake in the afternoon helps: a reward if all has gone well, consolation if it's a bad day.
