Really happy to see the Test For Coronavirus service now making notifications of tests optional - a sign of great #ServiceDesign following user feedback, and continually improving the service. Not only does it remind me something I've literally just done, but saves a lot of money for not sending notifications to people who don't need them. I appreciate that some folks may still want it, especially if you're testing for someone else, so it's great to get that level of control

Yeah I appreciate what you're thinking, Google, but using "your Linux" as a way to refer to my new laptop definitely doesn't work. Pretty sure it only works for "your Mac"

Not that I would forget about the wonderful team I left at #CapitalOne, the Purple Pandas, but my leaving gifts are going to remind me of them every day 💜 And thanks to everyone who chipped in for them, it's very appreciated!

After a mishap with the boiler last night, #Morph is very happy that the heating is back on, and he can be extremely warm under a blanket, too!

We didn't realise that getting a security camera with a night setting may not be the best thing, as we didn't realise we'd be inviting a demon into our house instead of #Morph

Glad I'd not done Ring Fit this morning, cause taming this lawn was quite the workout 😅

So Anna Dodson and I may have bought another set of mugs at the weekend.... When a third of your mugs are cat related you know you have an unhealthy obsession with your little fluffy child 😹

Although #Morph has had a stressful few days with lots of cats trying to get onto his turf, it hasn't stopped him having a good weekend of snuggles

Nothing says a great start to a three day weekend than pushing the boat out for some Doughnotts doughnuts! Must've been 18 months since we had them, but #Deliveroo's #TastyThursday deal was too good to pass on!

#Morph has been very surprised to find himself outside this morning, and has been quite insistent that we let him back in, as he's not quite sure how to do it 😂

So Anna Dodson has perfectly summed up my relationship with #Morph in this photo - I'm having the best time and he's pleading to be left alone 😹 this is after two minutes of purring and kitty kisses, if that helps!

With all the excitement of the #NewHouse, I'd missed this #Christmas hamper from work - what a lovely reminder of #LifeAtCapitalOne and the wonderful ways we're looked after - in addition to the £100 M&S voucher I won last week!

A box of Tetley English Breakfast tea, a carton of 200 Degrees Brazillian Love Affair coffee, a card from Capital One, a cone titled reindeer food and a warning that it isn't for human consumption, a cone of sweets, a jar of winter chutney, a jar of festive picallili, and a mulled wine kit with instructions for alcoholic and non-alcoholic variants

To celebrate my #NewHouse, I'm pairing a gorgeous Brut with a succulent breast of chicken, with pomme frites, and a jus de viande. Yep, Champers and KFC, like a true adult 🙌🏼

Welp, Anna Dodson and I managed to have a second Sunday lunch, with leftovers! Hopefully going to make it through the afternoon without a nap 😴
