The thing about leaving just before 7 in a fast truck is that you not only get to work really really early, but you also get to see the sunrise. Twice. First the high-level one, then the lower-cloud one - both brilliant.

And then of course you land running after a week off with an inbox full of stuff to go through, the aircon demon back at his workstation and turning down the heat, and thoughts of the next long weekend being 40 days away...

Today there's a lot to deal with and a lot to face. I really don't want to, but I know I have no choice. It's a case of chaining myself to the desk and working through one thing at a time.

First though - coffee. Or I'll start biting people's heads off shortly.
