I used to have that problem with delayed pay. Will do again soon. It's such a pain! Earlier this week the weather was more like late winter early spring so I can picture it there. Hope things improve.

Oh dear. I just moved 200 km East and I'm overwhelmed. [smile2]

Good luck, Kaz, it's all too chaotic, but I hope you'll get everything sorted out. [love2]

This week age has really beaten me up:

Last Sunday I was in a department store and saw some make-up that I liked, and exclaimed spontaneously "If only I were 20 years younger!"

Yesterday, I was baffled when a friend of mine told me about her daughter who has just finished college.

And today I found a Freddy Mercury poster with the dates "1946-1991", and I thought he'd been dead for thirteen years, until I actually made the maths.

I have the same problem each time a former pupil (mine live my school at 16) come back to introduce me his/her babies.

I always think that the most important age is the one we have in our brain and in our heart.

I spent all morning fixing two years worth of wrong billings of over a million dollars, preparing refunds and new billings for the right entity. Then, reviewing everything, I noticed one small mistake that I had not seen the first time, and have no control to fix, and it derailed everything! Now I can't do any refunds, or billings, until someone else fixes it, and that will involve asking for money back from a third party....And I wasted ALL morning.
So now I'm eating chocolate chip cookies and I don't care if I eat them all....

I'm joining you with the chocolate Sophie. It's annoying when that sort of thing happens, you do your best and something you can't control makes it all pointless.

Meanwhile my stomach is tied up in knots over the referendum so also overdosing on chocolate.

(((C))) Not a positive outcome for you, I presume.

So what's up with all that, Clare ?

What's worse is that I didn't even have a vote or that's how it feels. Out of the 32 councils in Scotland the results of 31 were in when the result was called. The Highlands were delayed by a road fatality stopping delivery of some ballot boxes. So ours were announced after the vote was called. It feels like the whole of the Highlands might as well have stayed home. Meanwhile the Westminster public schoolboy born to rule brigade have got their smirks back.

There's an air of shock around here. The enthusiastic debates have all gone, the people singing revolutionary Italian songs (yes, really!) on the High Street have packed up. People are back to not talking to each other. We could have governed ourselves and stopped letting elites kick people when they're down, but we handed our power over. [cry]
