>I got here again on time, so I’m still earning Brownie points there, but I couldn’t get into anything … “deep” again because we’d all been summoned to an all staff meeting at short notice, so I was clock watching for some of the time, faffing with bitty stuff the rest of the time. Then off we all toddled to our meeting, and for the first time in ages we had some good news.
During lunch I thought I’d have half an hour on the gig list, but I forgot to eat. So I was about to munch at about 2:10pm when a call came in: “Diane, you’re supposed to be in our manual handling training, aren’t you?” Um, it started at 2pm. So off I toddled to that. It was a useful workshop and didn’t go on too long.
And now it’s too late to get into anything … “deep” because I’m clock watching again for home time. So I thought I’d sneak in this post while I actually eat my, um, lunch. I shan’t be hungry at tea time but will probably be starved by bedtime.
Tonight I’m taking all the phones off the hook, pulling the curtains and locking the doors. It’s Mentalist night on telly, the last 2 episodes are being shown back to back, but before that there are 2 background programmes on the show too, and I want to treat myself.
And I’m afraid that’s it for today. As I keep saying to folk, I feel like I’m chasing my tail and meeting myself coming back at the moment, but nothing seems to be getting done. Hopefully that will all change tomorrow as it’s deadline day. I’m also gearing up for a weekend of chores, writing, reading and, um, X-Factor. I’m grounded this weekend as it’s a 5 weekend month and I’m living without credit.
