Famous last words:
"Things can only get better --- I'm attending my local Neighbourhood Partnership 'business meeting' this evening: I mean, what could possibly go wrong there?"
--- well, it went on until 9.15pm :-((
Wednesday (now today!) just has to be better ... off to the metropolis for an ERS meeting - surely even discussing electoral reform for several hours has to be refreshing after the Tuesday I've just been through??
