I really should continue working when I get home tonight, but the urge to just flop onto the sofa and sleep will be hard to resist. Gah.
I’m drowning in work. Is life under The Project always going to be like this? At least it is quite enjoyable. The problem is that I’m holding down The Project and the nursery as well at the moment.
Could really use a holiday. Or a massage. Or someone to come round and do my laundry and cook me a lovely dinner. Or all of those things. Anyone?
It is sad to remark that if a man had achieved this, it would have been front page news, and not consigned to a tiny postage stamp sized comment in most media.
I’m surprised that Nico hasn’t picked up on this one. According to tonight’s PM programme on Radio 4, if the result of the current competition goes the way it seems it is going to go, land-locked Switzerland will be the host of the next America’s Cup.
(Actually, it won’t, because the rules say that the host port must open onto the sea, but let’s not let that get in the way of a good story).
Been working hard all day. Am now hungry. Typing builds a healthy appetite.
Anyone ever been to Mango in Arundel – the wine bar and restaurant? If so, what did you think?
Just had a chat with Man From NatWest, and it was good. Very good indeed. Not certain. But encouraging.
This morning’s challenge is to alter the nursery’s "Calling Circle" (the business equivalent of Friends and Family) using BT’s website, as advertised on the bill we’ve just received. However, the website helpfully suggests that I dial 152 and get an operator to do it. Grrrr.
IDS should cut out the hyena impressions and generally do nothing if he wants to keep the leadership, according to Nick Assinder of the BBC. I’m also interested that the Chief Whip, David Maclean, has intervened to support IDS in an article in today’s Telegraph, and not the leopard-skin-booted Theresa May. Hmmm.
In a rare moment of lucidity, the Chingford Skinhead himself, Lord Tebbit, stated in a BBC News interview that the problem with opposition leaders is that they are always on trial until they win the election. That is true, but the volume and consistency of the criticisms of IDS must lead him to question whether he has the true support of anyone outside his cabinet (or even all of those within it). And, as is currently being shown by the PM, without that united support, you can seem weak, even if you are strong in your own convictions.
I was supposed to have a date last night, but it was cancelled due to illness. Allegedly. Who can tell?
So, feeling a little miffed and disappointed, I went to bed at the ludicrously early hour of 9.45pm, slept like a log, but still felt utterly exhausted when I woke up at 7.58am, having slept through 58 minutes of Sara Cox as well as the sound of the dustmen, who always park their lorry right outside my bedroom window.
