The company is being taken over by a different branch of the same company and we have to write to all our clients to tell them that none of the people at our office have changed and we’re only changing one word in the title of the business. All the clients! I’ve spent the past three or four days at work pouring over lists, producing letters and pouring over more lists.
As always my haven is home and Helios. We’ve been listening to a number of football games on the radio and doing housework. It’s so nice not to have any extreme expectations at home so we can enjoy watching the birds come to the feeding trays.
This past weekend Helios had a work’s extravaganza inLondonand, unfortunately, missed his 11:30 coach home. The next one was at2:00 a.m.so he wasn’t home much before 4:00 a.m. I stayed awake watching TV until 2:00 a.m. but then went to bed. I didn’t manage a good sleep until he arrived. He got home and crashed but I stayed awake for some of the Dawn Chorus. (!) My body clock is so stupid that I woke up again at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. I feel I spent the rest of the weekend trying to catch up with myself a little bit. Or perhaps it’s the usual pre-period exhaustion finally rearing its ugly head? Or perhaps I’m just tired of working my butt off?
