One of the nicer things about working in a coffee shop in the morning is the hustle and bustle going on around you. I think there is a sub-conscious response to that, as I do work faster and harder when surrounded by activity than when sitting at home in solitude and silence.

Some of that noise and activity is part of what I miss about not working in an office – although the fact that I can get on with work without being constantly interrupted by stupid questions is a blessing.

This morning has proven most “interesting” though, as the one huge disadvantage of sitting in a public area, is that you really don’t know who else is going to be there. I am currently sitting a couple of chairs away from a woman who is intently reading the FT newspaper – which should be fine. However, as soon as a couple of people sat at the table between us, she went on some sort of manic rant about being deported and wanting to kill the immigration officers.

I am sitting near a lunatic!

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
