A very difficult couple of weeks. Not so much ‘Shit Hits The Fan’, but as Charlie Stross puts it, the entire cess-pit is sucked into a jet engine.

We had interviews for a new member of staff. 4pm on the day before she was due to start, she phoned up and told me that she wasn’t going to take up the post after all. Course, we’d booked loads of work for her to do, so everyone had to pull together (which they did very well) to take up all the extra work that she’d caused. Stress levels very high.

Bank Holiday weekend, so at least some time to unwind following this minor difficulty…
