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.
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.
