I was out of bed early this morning and walked in to the foyer of the client offices at a quite remarkable half past seven in the morning.
The lack of restaurant facilities at the Travelodge was the impetus for this early start and I turned right and headed for the refectory. I had worked up quite an appetite on the drive in to the office so I pitched up to the counter and ordered the "seven item, Full English". It is fair to say that I wasn't quite ready for the portion size ... the plate was piled so high it was spilling on to the tray and I was charged less than £3 for this cholesterol extravaganza.
I am afraid that was the high point of my working day and for the following ten hours I alternated between reviewing contract documents and just trying to look busy.
As I type this I am sat in the Holiday Inn restaurant with a G&T wondering what the chances are of me being "cut loose" next week.
Anything is better than providing holiday cover.
