Cool -- thanks for letting me know your issues of Shock Totem have arrived. I hope you enjoy them afro

Re Christmas holidays -- I thought I'd finished for this year at the end of today, but went out for a meal tonight, outside of mobile phone coverage, and get back home at gone midnight to find frantic missed calls, which will keep me busy all day tomorrow, and probably the next day as well undecided

Congrats on the story. afro

Touching wood, that's my last conference call hosted for the year. I'm off to make a nice cup of coffee and enjoy a quietish morning (damn, I hurt my fingres I was hitting that wood so hard) before breaking up for the holidays  cheers

I had a drunken boss ranting down the phone at me last night because I had left the water turned off in a newly finished, unoccupied house (common sense, right?), and hadn't specifically told the client how to turn it on. On hindsight I don't think it needed saying, TBH -- it's so obvious. However, it slipped my mind during the mad rush and the bad weather. He then carried on ranting about several other problems that have nothing to do with anything I've done, but he'd somehow apportioned the blame to me. I set him straight on that, in no uncertain terms. The fact I've busted a gut for them over the past few months, performed minor miracles, done work so quickly, under pressure, that people don't believe it was possible to do in the given time -- it's all forgotten. To cap it all, I missed my son's birthday tenpin bowling party yesterday afternoon to get them out of the shit once again, and that was all the thanks I got. Unreal I was practically catatonic with a mix of depression and anger when I got home last night. Took me hours to wind down.

Still, today's another day, and I hope to God they will all have the good grace to leave me alone for a couple of weeks now, otherwise I'm likely to explode. smiley
