Making Myself A Bit Late For Work. For Real.

Ewwwwrrrrggghhh - back to the World of Work today, after 9, or is it, 10 days off. An utterly slack life indeed. No wonder I need to have a job - I obviously lack the willpower to hack it self-employed. Whatever, I was dumbstruck by How Did It Get That Dark Since I Last Got Up That Early? Despite 2 dreams torturing me that I've been Severely Late (9am and 3pm ....) I am still sitting here, stubbornly having a 2nd cup of black tea, with precisely 36 minutes to shower and find something presentable in which to leave the house.

No doubt Work Talk will be of How Dark It Was This Morning, and who the hell is Patrick Crawley from last night's Downton Abbey. I will, of course, be extremely one-up on helpful in the latter conversation, from watching the previous series. Though maybe less knowledgeable about why Mary seems to get romantically entangled with all her male cousins. Heir or not. Isn't that inter-breeding? Is that what the New Era they are talking about, at the end of the First World War, is supposed to eradicate? Matthew's legs are twitching... he may be back in the running. Literally.

Work. I have to go tomorrow (I don't usually work on Tuesday's). I would rather stay home. I'm never late, never early, always (by the skin of my teeth!) just on time.

Oh, I love Downton - wonder how many more episodes there are in this series.

I know nothing about Downton Abbey, I'm in mourning for Spooks. x

Kylie - I made it by 2 minutes. Though the boss considers anything less than 5 minutes early to be late - grrrr. But the boss wasn't there today - huzzah! Are you at the op shop tomorrow? x

Liz - I don't know - not sure if I want to know; it'd be too easy to start working out what might happen if we knew. Its all so RESTRAINED - but brilliant! x

Vix - I should have found time to get into Spooks; it looked good when I saw it ages ago... you have to try DA; maxi-skirts central! and possibly capes too... x

No, Ms T.P. my proper job, I like working in the oppy, and I'm usually early (not terribly, but early none-the-less) pity I don't get paid...

I wondered as I was typing that - silly me - you mentioned your new job. Are you liking it? x
