blog block


I think I've got a touch of Blog Block.  There seems to be a bit of it about.

Reaction from all the stress over the last few days hit me yesterday afternoon;  I spent a couple of hours sitting on the sofa starting fixedly at Rightmove and Be My Parent and rocking, gently.

I'm still struggling with the bloody PAYE submission;  I've got all my figures and I've got all my printouts but because I submitted the wrong year in a fit of software-induced stress, I apparently can't resubmit the correct returns without a complete reorganisation of the Inland Revenue department concerned. 

Their helpline is so busy that it cuts you off before you get in to the queue and the automated response I have received from my plaintive email cry for help says that they will try to get back to me in the next couple of days.

The submission deadline to avoid having their boys come round with Patent Inland Revenue Kneecapping Devices is Friday.

Our Sarcastic Accountant says to take all my correspondence and the correct figures and go and see them; the revenue office is only in Birkenhead.  However I have no transport today as B is working and anyway, I need to spend a couple of hours this afternoon rocking and whimpering behind the sofa.

Argle.

I think am going to make flapjacks.  If I hide a file inside I'll be able to bust myself out when the revenue bang me up.

  1. You did submit. You just submitted with an error and have dated, recorded proof of your subsequent request for help. It'll all come out in the wash.

    Please have three flap jacks and a huuuuuge cup of tea for me, while you are stodging out.

    Yum.

  3. Awww, babe! *sheds involuntary tear at thought of Ally rocking and whimpering*
    They won't "bang you up". You're too...well...you're too "you" to imprison.
    *large hugs* Break out the Carrot Whiskey - that goes well with flapjacks.

  5. In moments of stress, flapjackery is a damn good thing, in my book. Have you ever tried the savoury version, made with cheese? I know, I know: it sounds so very wrong. But honestly, they're divine, and don't last ten minutes around here. Will send you the recipe if you're interested.

    Oh, and bugger the Inland Revenue. They're not all monsters; I'm sure they won't bang you up. Yet. ;)

  9. I'm sure Cheryl is right, you have already submitted them, just with an error. Even it that doesn't count I don't think they'll lock you up, it's not like major tax evasion.

    Have a flapjack, and try again later, or tomorrow. If you do have to send them off tomorrow, use express recorded delivery, the forms will be there first thing friday morning.

  13. Sorry about the auction and HMIT woes. I'd hop round in a cab it would get it out of your hands and into theirs then.

    Flapjack sounds good, does it have any secret carroty ingredients.
