Dog Tired

I worked a 59 hour week this week. Highlights included ’til 10 on Monday, ’til midnight on Tuesday, ’til 3AM on Wednesday, and 7 hours today (Sunday). It’s been exam marking and mark-collating season, and I’m on the team that does this job in the department, so…

This level of craziness is unusual for me, thank God, but every week since Christmas has been full on (wedding preparations and house-related shenanigans (selling one, looking for another to rent) have helped fill the gaps nicely), and in fact, when one of the secretaries said to me a couple of weeks ago “ooh, it’s been really busy this week – last week was lovely and quiet, wasn’t it?”, I had to reply “Jill, I haven’t had a quiet week since <pause for thinking> – August”. Alas, it’s true.

Roll on the summer, that’s all I’ll say…
