Well, it was another day of finding it difficult to be around people.
I got through it though there were times when I really did have to take a deep breath and it was noticeable that I was really spending most of my time whilst I was travelling looking at the ground ... though that could also have had a lot to do with the fact that I was on a bike and there was lots of wet stuff coming out of the skies.
Managed to run some reports and sort some stuff out but really found the open plan hard work ... though it was really nice to go and disappear to the loo and just have some quiet time in the dark of the cubicle ... really don't understand why people seem to need so much light to pee ... there was one point not long before I left when someone turned the lights on in the office and that was a bit of shock - just overload ... may be I ought to work by brail for a while.
Managed to leave the office before the door broke again (happened about 10 days ago) ... which means the only way out is the fire-escape ... will let you in but won't let you out - sinister really. Think it was sorted relatively quickly as there was a later email to say it was fixed so think everyone will have made it home.
Was really glad to get off the train near home - much quieter than all the streets in Oxford. Less surface water on the roads as well. Even nicer to get back to the quiet of home and lock myself in.
Haven't tried using the ipod yet to drown out everyone else's noises when I'm travelling ... which is partly because it's difficult to cope with the ear phones and I tend to get a bit sore and I'm also not entirely convinced that it wouldn't make things worse - accentuate the feeling of things coming up on me unexpectedly.
Lifts quite different sensations when people are in them and when I'm on my own ... though I guess it was rather funny that the small girl sharing the lift at Oxford in the morning hit the alarm button, much to the consternation of her parents - at least it didn't set off sirens, just an automated voice telling us not to panic because someone was coming (don't think that was true as I didn't see anyone!)
Time for bed ... and falling asleep over the crossword.
