forgive us for those things we have left undone

I am doing the VAT return. Honestly.

I've been doing it for about ten days and Civilization III keeps getting in my way. It throws itself bodily in front of me and those dashed Aztecs keep attacking my cities and forcing me to turn my attention away from real-world financial reconciliation towards virtual-world diplomacy. And building big-ass tanks and cruise missiles of course.

I'll get them in the end.

But today my time has run out. I need to do the pay. If I don't get it all done pretty soon, not only will Her Majesty's Customs and Excise be sending the Boys Round, but R will starve.

This is what happens when you buy yourself a new laptop on Ebay whilst your husband is working away. It just kind of happened by accident - I didn't expect to win the auction and all of a sudden, oops, there it was and not only did I have to pay for it, I had to explain to B what I'd done.

It's a lovely laptop, but that's not really the point.

Hey ho. He was very nice about it, considering :).
