As mentioned yesterday, my weekday entries are going to be even less interesting than normal as I am now strapped to the back of the metaphorical bull that is the final stages of developing an RFP response. For the next three weeks I will be sat at a laptop for ludicrous lengths of time just trying to stay abroad and ensure that everything gets done and the costs are ready for pricing.
The twenty four hours that made up Wednesday panned out like this:-
00.00 - 07.00 Sleeping
07.00 - 08.00 Coffee, Toast, a look at the BBC News website
08.00 - 19.00 Work
19.00 - 23.00 Dinner and Sofa Time
23.00 - 24.00 Sleeping
As you can see it is a case of existence rather than life as the long day leaves you with little enthusiasm for anything but sloth. I should also point out that, if you are doing the job right, work bleeds in to your thoughts during many of the non-working hours too.
Basically I will be living and breathing the deal until we close out the costs and pass them across to pricing. I will still have shit loads to do but the pace eases slightly at that point.
