I should feel very depressed because the deadline for completing the conversion is today and the elves didn’t come out and complete the work. Instead the electrician worked all weekend, the kitchen fitter put in a marathon spell, the door fitter put in a stint on Saturday and got all but one of the fire doors fitted, Andrew worked like a trojan with the electrician but it was not enough. I think we will be lucky to have it done by next week so I’m setting a new date of December 12. Apparently running over on your first project is not unusual – and is actually expected. It doesn’t help either that we are now in dispute with the drainage company for not being able to deliver to our agreed date but worse of all for trying to rip us off on the quote. Not fitting equipment and trying to charge us for it. Will be interesting to see if the director turns up tomorrow to get his money as he threatened.
I’m not depressed because I’ve been too busy preparing for the World’s Aid day performance at the Town Hall tomorrow. Amazing how long it takes to put together a ten minute skit. I’m doing it with Ita – one of the Mahagony Tree. Also today I was asked if I would be master of ceremony for the Amnesty/Writers Without Borders event on December 6th. My gut reaction was ‘I’m not ready for this’ but if someone considers that I am then I must be – so I said yes. I’ll have to feel the fear and do it anyway.
