    It's not, that would've been ideal but my laziness has paid a price and all the nice close ones are full. I'll keep an eye out, though - that happened to me for Manchester Airport previously and I checked one day and got a room

    The other rent-a-desk places I've seen in Manchester have email addresses that bounce back undelivered. I think I will have to phone and talk to someone...
    Didn't I tell everybody this before! Anyway, can't guarantee, but at the one in London I pretty just walked in - I can't imagine for a minute you'll be made to hold until 0900

    I know you said about the sign up and then cancel malarkey, which is why I bothered getting in touch with them, but I don't recall anything about the 9am nonsense. Apologies if I missed that.

    I'm guessing no office will be busy on a Friday and they will let me in. Just would like to be sure. I have time yet, maybe I can convince the new PM to move the meeting

    Nah, I didn't realise the 9am bit either. Can't even remember when I walked in to be honest - I wasn't feeling my most productive that day

    Work? Why would I work? My company is paying for me to attend a networking meeting. I plan on shopping and then having a nice civilised meal on Friday evening. With one or two beers.
