A long day

Fountains in Versailles.
How I imagine the broken cistern looked today.

It’s been a long day today.

A day of preparing services for Holy Week; of dealing with a broken toilet cistern in a holiday house forty-five miles away, a concerned sister-in-law and wet brother-in-law; of welcoming an ill Jane home early from work; of continuing to write a user guide to WordPress — the content management tool behind the Scottish Episcopal Church website — while trying to protect my left wrist which clearly has RSI from too much typing.

And despite having been at my desk for nearly 15 hours, and having got an awful lot done, it still doesn’t feel enough to enable me to have it all finished in two weeks time.

In fourteen days time I’ll be packing up this study. It had all better be finished by then. There are going to be many more long days (and nights) like this one. But for now, I need to go to sleep. I’ve lost my edge, can’t concentrate as well, and will probalby end up spellign everythign wrogn.
