High points yesterday:
- I got a package from Amazon, with the Davros box and Doctor Who: The Movie. (Which means I now have spare copies of Genesis of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks.)
- Chatted with thette, which cheered me up immensely (as always).
- Called my boss Yvonne on her holiday, and got approval for another week's holiday, meaning I'll be off between July 28 and August 22. This will be taken out of my overtime account and not from my accumulated vacation days.
- Most everything else. A stressful day, one of the worst ten days of my professional life: too much to do in too little time, more jobs kept dropping in, and a communications error between me and a Norwegian freelancer earned me an earful and an invoice for nine hours' wasted effort. Does every freaking summer have to be like this?
Next year I will take my holiday in July and let the others deal with the fallout. Or even find something else to do outside the translation/localisation business.
