H, T and friend H are in the other room. They chat on and on in that free way people do when they don't have to do anything in particular. Two computer systems are running, two different games are being played. Some talk is coming into the room from players round the world with headsets. If it gets irritating we mute them.
My role is to prepare the table for lunch and be peaceful in the kitchen. It's relaxing to know we have the whole afternoon to spend as we please. There is only one deadline, leaving at 5pm for karting.
