Instead I'm sitting in the kitchen, listening to R4. My favourite. In an hour or so David Tennant will be reading A Night with a Vampire.
David Tennant reads Antoine Calmet's accounts of real Vampires, gathered from people across Europe who believed they had seen the creatures with their own eyes.Super.
Work is charging onward towards the car crash that will be Christmas. With too much to do in a limited time, sitting by as clients pass on their hurried (and poorly thought out) deals for the sake of getting them done before Christmas.
Quietly I'm resigned to the fact that I'll have to work through most of my planned holiday time off from the office 9-17 December. I'll probably be in on 9th, 13th-15th.
Already I've given up holiday booked for the days falling between Christmas and New Year, to provide cover.
My latest pleasure is buying books, and putting them in piles. I never get the chance to read them, but knowing I have them makes all the difference.
Yet another manifestation of my inclinations towards hoarding, I suppose.
