OH NO! The time has come....

 Friends, Crafters, CountryFolk.... The time has come....
I have tried so hard to avoid this. I never wanted to do it again. BUT needs must.

I have joined the Rat Race.
I have become a  *gulp*  C O M M U T E R
 Bleary eyed morning coffee
trying to get dressed appropriately for the.... Office
what will my colleagues be like?
packing my bags
searching for keys
 And finally, i am ready... to take those first steps.
Those few steps....

hang on a minute.
There are only about 5 steps. and who left all that rubbish outside?
 Welcome to:
The PaperFish Industries HEAD QUARTERS!
The Hub - the epicentre
 I have SO very much more to do to my office in order to make it cosy and creative.
But at least, i am here. i am working from the new building and 'pretty much' all boxes and bags and rolls and jars are in here... somewhere.

Witness the feat of engineering that IS the CUTTING TABLE
An amazing assortment of pieces that allows precision cutting of felt, fabric and ribbons
(thanks DadFish)
 View from the office window isn't bad i guess.... very handy to have a Bay Tree right outside.
 There is almost a sense of order to the place
and i must say, my colleagues are very quiet and the coffee is superb.
 I shall keep you informed of the next developments in operation "PaperFish Commute"
but, until then, i must leave you.
I now work in an office....
Although i *might* pop home for lunch
(or to the pub)

You really had me worried there! I mean, I know you've had a tough year and all, but starting to commute just before Christmas would be the worst! So glad your commute is so manageable and that the coffee will always be good. xx

I felt so sad at the thought of you having to commute to work and then very happy when I read on.

Lovely office.

My heart sank at the thought of you joining the rat race... and what joy when it was a commute to that fab office..
just love your work area, you have done so well.
Looking forward to more up dates
