Loving my new #homeoffice situation ๐Ÿ˜ I'm lucky enough to have my own dedicated office space in our house, but i've struggled a bit to make it work for me. I bought my desk (which is officially a dining table) almost a year ago & I initially loved having loads of space to spread my stuff out. But, as I've gotten busier work-wise, I gradually found myself being surrounded by piles of papers, books, invoices, receipts, to-do lists... organised, but not functional, and actually starting to get a bit claustrophobic.
So, I bought myself an IKEA #kallax and spent this evening assembling it and filling it with my stuff. This is the result - yes, it takes up space, but it gives everything a proper home, while keeping it within reach. And I am still surrounded by mementos that I love - my "She Believed She Could" print, my blanket scarf, my silk map of London, crochet Prince, carved wooden trinkets, Lego, photos, etc ๐Ÿ’™ and I still have lots of clear desk to work on!

I end the day with another train station roof. My visit to the University of Nottingham was very productive indeed, and prompted lots of interesting & helpful discussions with the Prof - a fellow paddy, who I met at #SciFoo โ˜บ AND I had a bonus coffee with one of my besties, who was in the city to see a cricket match that ended up being rained off. Excellent day! #lifeofawriter

Selfie with my #scifoo t-shirt. I spent decades hiding from the camera because I wasn't pretty/thin/young/whatever enough. Working on being a badass old lady who doesn't care

The nerdiest swag from #scifoo

Today, I visited the Biomimetics and Dexterous Manipulation Lab at Stanford University to interview some rather brilliant engineers. They are developing tech that helps robots to climb and to have a sense of touch. It was ACE and the campus was stunning ๐Ÿ˜ Tomorrow, I'm off to SF to hit up The Exploratorium, before heading back to New Zealand to see my love. It's been an incredible trip! #scifoo #science #scicomm #lifeofawriter #stanford #google #paloalto

Highlight of trip to #scifoo was trying out @phylogenomics ' game "Gut Check", and immediately getting leprosy, plague, and incurable athletes foot ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค”

Final day of #SciFoo, and it was my turn to speak. Nobel Laureates in the crowd alongside experts on topics as diverse as the archaeology of the #SilkRoad and ultrasound characterisation of plants.WHAT an experience! I talked about some of my favourite examples of stickiness and slippery-ness in nature (from my next book), and it seems to have been well-received. Life goal ACHIEVED. #scicomm #lifegoals #google #science #lifeofawriter

Last day Google and #scifoo. Will miss the big brains and California sunshine โ˜€๏ธ .
