An early start and then a two hour phone call. I felt like my day was starting all over again when I emerged from that. I had hoped for a quieter week this week, but today was busy, though not as pressured as in recent times – which makes a huge difference.
I eventually managed half an hour away from desk in the early afternoon and then came back and had a late lunch as I caught up with emails. And the urgent email requests kept coming until I left this evening.
It took ages to get home. Edinburgh was busy. There was football and a road was closed, with a diversion in place. The traffic was really snarled up. I eventually made it home, forty minutes later than I expected, had my tea and then had to head out to get some provisions for BB, who declared he needs a packed lunch tomorrow. At least I got some steps!
I took this for the ghost sign, which you can barely read. Under the broken sign it says wine and spirits merchant. However, it is a sign of the time, with the girl in the facemask waiting to cross the road.
