    Good luck in your new pad.

    I'm so pleased that you didn't have to resort to bunk desks.:D Even with the 'hot desking' system that big companies operate, you'd struggle to accommodate all the MSE staff.;)

    Thanks for the picture, it's worth a thousand words.

    Will anyone spill the beans................does Martin throw a tennis ball against the wall/glass partition (thinking of Toby in 'The West Wing';) ) or does he make and throw paper planes?:D

    I’m not quite sure what to do with all the space; I tend to crouch up close to the desk anyway.
    rent out the extra space to a lodger? :p

    Come on Martin, you can spell better than that, can't you? Metres, not meters (unless you're talking about water meters, etc)

    Oops, I missed that typo when I was proofing. Cheers, I've updated it. :)

    Nice to see the photo of your new office! :beer:

    I hope your view is better than before, which reminded me of the one in Extras: :rotfl:

  • Hi Martin

    It was lovely to see your new office and be better able to imagine you and the team hard at work but I can't get out of my mind that the two team members with their backs to the cameras were sitting in very slouched positions, I'm concerned about their poor backs, especially if they're sitting on cheap office chairs?

    (nooo.....you wouldn't scrimp on office chairs to save money would you?) ;P

    The chap on the left was actually the telephone engineer setting up the new lines. For everyone else we've had a full ergonomic assessment done for desks, chairs and monitors :)

    That's a bit impressive. When I moved office I was just pleased to have a chair :D
