Arrive at 06:50. First in. Set up.
More arrive. Greetings and head to the kitchen for chat and a drink.
A glance at the screen reminds me where I was up to yesterday. I remember now, mid-way through a bug hunt.
Okay, let's do thi…
More arrive. Greetings. Another coffee? Sure, may as well. Hear about last night. Polite nods. Edge towards my desk and get back to my code.

Morning. Good holiday? Glad to be back? Empty laughs. Sigh.
Several people eating breakfast at their desks. That usual couple stage-whispering a lengthy conversation. A test announcement is broadcast through the speakers.

Stare at the code. Become the code. Flatten that bug. Hang on, I see it now. Code comes and goes. Progress.
Another Scrum ceremony. Can I stop he… no? Okay. Guess so.
Well that could've been shorter. Check my notes. Log back in and pick up where I left off. Run tests. Iterate. Run tests. Commit code. Raise a PR. Done. Next.
