Among the shops there is a shoe-repair shop, and as I mentioned, I had shoes to collect yesterday. This time, I remembered to bring enough money to redeem the shoes. When I got back to the office, I changed into the newly-soled-and-heeled shoes. (I change out of my wing-tips into walking shoes when I do those post-lunch walks; otherwise my feet start hurting pretty quickly.) I'm sure glad it was not raining yesterday. Those brand-new soles are slippery! Walking through my office, I felt like I was ice skating over the carpet.

I'm working from home today, but am still head-down over my current project, which has an ambitious, although not impossible, schedule.
