Each time I come up for air at work and think I'm finally buoyant my head is pushed under. Again. By lunchtime I was looking wistfully at the beach. Again.
Then news this evening that the house-building quote is 24% higher than my basic budget plus my contingency budget. No amount of drowning at work will earn me enough to cover that.
Just as well that in between I had a restorative afternoon with my daughter.
