Well, the plus-size vocalist has performed (the fat lady’s sung) and our trip is all over.
It’s been a great trip and is has been wonderful to catch up with friends and family but now reality has bitten and I’m back in my office.
There’s one small consolation … the countdown timer on my computer which tells me how many days I have left until I retire … 🙂
So, it isn’t actually all that bad, but it does remind me of those words from ‘Clancy of the Overflow’ by A.B. (Banjo) Paterson:
I am sitting in my dingy little office, where a stingy
Ray of sunlight struggles feebly down between the houses tall,
And the foetid air and gritty of the dusty, dirty city
Through the open window floating, spreads its foulness over all.
