Good morning ✨

Hello, it's me again.

I'm up; and the coffee ☕ is poured. It's a new, slightly less strong (grade 3) Ethiopian blend. I'll tell you at the end what it's like: it's too hot to drink at the mo.

How was yesterday?


Drum roll 🥁: I had two — yep, two — pieces of legal work to do. I nearly fell off my chair, or should I say I nearly (ha ha) woke up.

But it was OK. I chomped through them in no time at all. Whether anyone will take note of my lofty advice, I've no idea. That's the one slight problem with my job: it's like patting a small dog (children, no; definitely, no, to patting them on the top of their heads...): good job but then everyone quickly ignores you.

I don't care.

I'm used to it by now, and, hey, it's just a job.

I went to the gym last night with daughter #3. She's getting a bit obsessed but then again, I've this sneaking suspicion she's gearing herself up for a fitness test if she does try out for either of the police or army. Both are a long way off but there's no time like the present, eh. It's always good fun to spend time with her, even if it's just sitting in the car together. I always learn something.
