Sigh [Mar. 26th, 2004|08:53 pm]
Peter Sheil
I feel so tired. Not had enough sleep for a few nights so I'm going to try and get to bed early tonight. I haven't been out on the town ... oh apart from Tuesday night that is, the meetup was good and about the only socialising I've done for a while. Mostly it's just work and trying to sort my flat out a bit after getting a heap of stuff back from Kim's a week or two ago. I'll be glad when I'm off for a week on the canal boat over Easter. Not that the week will be relaxing physically but hopefully it will be restful mentally. [The down side is that I'll still be supporting a couple of systems ... yes even though I'm on holiday :( but I'm expecting the users to be sensible about calling me (wry grin) ]

OK, off to get something to eat and sort out some stuff for the weekend - getting an old network cord out of a PC ready to put install it in my Father-in-law's PC. I've been trying to get it onto ADSL for a couple of visits and it is being recalcitrant. So far it has progressed backward - the next step is a clean install of windows and I'll see if that helps.

Excuse me if I don't comment much - feels like I'm just keeping my head above water right now :)

I can certainly relate to barely being above water. I have been getting into work at 7AM to get projects finished and trying to figure out which ones have to wait.

However, at noon on Thursday I will be free! My flight leaves at 6:30PM, I think. I can feel myself relaxing just thinking about it!

I so look forward to seeing you Saturday! :-D

Yes, that will be good :)

Although don't think the holiday will be all rest, as we are doing a circular route we have to stick to a schedule and I think there are a couple of days when we will need an early start (although if you are too tired I'm sure the rest of your boat will let you sleep on for a bit while they get going). And has Kevin explained about the hard work needed to get the locks open and the boats through? Not that I'm trying to put you off - actually I find that physical activity can be a great relief of mental stress.

Also, since it can get cold [I once got caught steering the boat without my coat on and a hail storm started suddenly] make sure that either you are bringing some warm clothes and waterproof coat or that Kevin has some spares for you ... oh and gloves! They can make a big difference to how you feel :) You probably already know all that so please excuse me if I'm not being helpful :)))

Loking forward to seeing you (hugs)
