A long sigh of relief

I've not written anything here for quite a while because I've been running around at work like a mad thing; I've had a lovely conversation over dinner with rezendi in Cambridge as he headed from Djibouti to Delhi by way of Paris, eaten macarons and cucumber-and-salmon sandwiches with the crusts cut off at crazyscot's splendid leaving do last weekend, and played two ceilidhs, but aside from that mostly I've worked ... got the final presentation finished at midnight on Sunday.

The customers came on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and they seem to have left pretty much satisfied; we've given them things that they didn't quite know to ask for, but managed to get two rounds of cheers in two days of presentations.

I now have a very long to-do list, but the next deadline is the end of August, and it's my colleague rather than I who'll be presenting at the meeting in Madrid then. Moreover, the to-do list does, at least from here, appear to consist mostly of things that are possible and that I'm reasonably confident I know how to do: this has not always been the case, and life is improved when it is.

This evening I will read Bloggers of the Zombie Apocalypse 2 (aka Deadline by Mira Grant)
