I started work again on Monday. Half days. I have about two more half days of people telling me I look great before they forget that I spent 2007 bent over like a paperclip.
The most intriguing change is the unusable phone at my desk. I have my regular old phone, the grey plastic box slowly acquiring dust and grime, and a shiny new one with a little LCD screen. Over the screen is a sticky note saying Aidan, Don't Use This Phone Yet.
No word on when the magic new-phone moment arrives.
