Final Slog

Posted on 2007/08/31 23:26:20 (August 2007).

[Friday 31st August]
Today was the final slog at work to get the stuff I needed to have finished off before going away on holiday. It seems taking a week off can actually be something of a false economy - you just end up working twice as hard in the week before and after you go away to make up for it.

Anyway, I was quite pleased with myself - I just literally got it all done by about 7PM, and then was able to go home somewhat triumphantly.

As Vera would be joining us for the first few days of our Scotland expidition, she had arrived in London today, had lunch at my office, and then we met up again back at the flat. Feeling a bit lazy the night before going away I just went and got pizzas from our nearby Pizza Express for dinner (which had been successful last time Vera came to stay) and we had a bottle of fairly pleasant Corbieres to go with it.

It felt really great to have got all my work done and have a week's holiday ahead of me, and I was in a somewhat jubilant mood this evening!
