Tender deadline today. (3pm - email tender)
Business manager has been "working on it" for 2 weeks.
We get the documents at 4pm yesterday for proofreading.
We finish proofreading and correcting at 2.30
I get email together.
I suddenly think - I can't remember who the email is supposed to be addressed to, so open up the original document. Which states that the tender has to be laid out in a specific way.
Which the documents that BM gave me aren't.
It is now 2.45
Panic and call BM over to work out which bits in his docs are supposed to go where in *their* doc.
Get tender emailed out at 2.58....
(BM buys us chocolate to say sorry!)

Fortunately my lovely new person is shaping up fantastically - there is no way that I could have got this sorted without her! :-)

There is a story idea shaping in my head, but I haven't had time to get it on paper - it will come soon!

Well I think I've finally got the hang of this posting thing.

At least your BM sound as though he has some idea of the amount of work you put in. Our bosses are convinced we don't do anything at all....
