Oh my flaming fingers, is that the time?
A whole week since my last post.
I seem to have spent the entire week up against deadlines of one sort or another. Documents needing to be submitted by a certain date, work needing to be completed by the end of the day or the end of the week, or even (rarely) the end of the month.
The auditors have announced that they wish to visit next month, to discuss our recent submission in depth. They have chosen the one date I desperately wanted to have as a day off, but that's just typical. I shall simply have to take three days of the following week instead of two, as a meeting day with them is always fairly intense and I'm exhausted already as the short deadlines continue.
Meantime, I have 1,200 words of reviews to get through this morning, plus a load of washing if I want to have anything clean to wear next week for work. The review requests have been coming thick and fast this week and it has been a good week to launch the blog, as there is a lot of new work on there now.
On another positive note, bragging rights this week include the fact that a former boss has been knighted in the Queen's birthday honours list. The University department where I used to work now boasts no less than three Professor Sirs on its current and emeritus academic list (1991, 2010 and 2015). Some places just have intelligence in the air. That was one such location.
I'll be back later to read and comment.
