The holiday ends here

It’s the last day of my holidays, though perhaps fittingly, I’ve been bombarded with support calls today. Oh the curse of the mobile phone and remote network connection.

Some questions that might be resolved by Monday. Or maybe not:

I bought some clothes yesterday. Can I actually pull off 3/4 length pants, or will they look ridiculous on me?

I also bought a kitchen chair from Ikea yesterday. Got it home to discover it wasn’t quite the exact match of the old ones that I thought. Will people notice and laugh?

Are today’s work issues caused by a bug in one of Microsoft’s libraries?

Will I be able to shout about that, so as not to make too much noise about the other bug I found today, in my own code? (Oh so THAT’s why it takes ages to run, and spits out the wrong figures.)

One day will the remote network connection be less flakey? Or is it just my machine’s setup?

Once all the work stuff is over, will I find the time to have a shower, tidy up the house, have some lunch, do some shopping, iron some shirts for work next week, then get all my stuff together for going away for the weekend? (Don’t get too excited. It’s only Seymour. With a bit of luck I’ll prepare a Here Is My photo today, to appear on Sunday.)

Will the paint specks on my arms and legs from helping paint Josh and Cathy’s house last night eventually come off?

Is there time for another cup of tea?
