eyes wide open

I have started my new job.
I have a desk! And a computer,
telephone, hole punch and stapler.
You see - I want for nothing.

Tomorrow I will take in
my own post-it dispenser -
it's a bit flash but I love it.
I'm at the stage where I know nothing
so a friendly post-it dispenser
will cheer me up when I make mistakes.

It's a bit early to chat
about the job here,
so many people to meet,
so much to learn.
I hope you understand.

Let's talk London for a while
until I get my feet under that desk.
I love my walk to work:
across the Thames, down Whitehall,
under Admiralty Arch.
I use these steps every morning
and they are impressive,
rain or shine.


Thank you for all your lovely comments
I am still working out my new routine
but will reply this week.


  1. Can you walk from home to the new job?!
    You have me itching to start someplace new.

  2. Yes, let's talk London, let's walk London!

    Your morning walk looks like a lovely way to start your days! Keeping you in good thoughts for a happy experience with this new start.

  4. i do like walking with you!

  5. Your own post-it dispenser flashy as it may be, will be a symbol of trust. I love your writing and every step you take. cath

  6. The scenery is decidedly impressive. I should like that kind of walk to work.

  7. Love the leaf-littered steps - I would be quite happy to walk this way to work with you.

  8. The flags and blue sky look very celebratory, just right for starting a new job!

  9. Gosh, I miss London at this time of year. Hope the job is interesting.

  10. oooh nothing like stationery to feel at home. I am the envy of the office with my new stapler (it has a storage compartment in the bottom for a spare strip of staples!)

  11. You have a post-it dispenser? I must google it at once....


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
