The Slough has many cafes, and I spend a lot of time in the them. Laptop in a cafe, which was once the joyful icon of our working life, is now lifeline, refuge and safe harbour. From the Seattle Coffee Co to this.

Someone else makes food and coffee, so it’s easy to absorb some nourishment with no effort. You can’t easily harm yourself in a cafe – wooden stirrers are no good for slicing arteries. And although you can sit and sob, it’s worth making the effort not to. So I skulk, and write, and sip and wonder – what next?
