Sometimes Annie likes to declare the living
room a work-only space, leaving Jeff to hide out in their bedroom so that she
can get on with revising notes for her exams and piecing together files for her
actual paid, work.
This is only the
case if Jeff’s not working himself, which happens more often than not because
he likes to leave most of his paper marking until the weekend or for his
office, so he doesn’t have to bring anything home, so when the coffee table is
covered in note cards and Annie’s hair is up in a bun as she sits crossed
legged on the floor, he knows that it’s time to stay away, or at least be
extremely quiet in his coffee making duties and press-ups on the floor.
