It's been mentioned to me that "Blair was out of his mind with worry yesterday , he could not contact [me] & thought something terrible had happened" and that I wasn't being fair when I said what I said last night.

Blair and Alison have more than their fair share of stresses at the moment, and none of us are coping very well with what life is throwing at us.

So an unreserved apology to Blair and Alison, particularly to Blair. I hope that their stresses are resolved with the same success as my friends are wishing for me.

Writing about things helps me to cope with the stress. Sometimes it backfires. Sometimes it's evident later that I'd been overreacting. Sometimes people get hurt, people who don't deserve the flak.

And for all of these things, I'm sorry.

In other news, troosa is now on LJ. I hope that writing about Stuff is helpful.

A visit from Boss B

Blair is off to Glasgow for the weekend (it being Mother's day).
Because I'm at home today, and my home is at the end of a feeder road for the M4, he was driving almost past the end of my road, and took the opportunity to pop in for a chat this morning.

Nothing sinister. It's just that it's a small company, and I'm the one who knows about routers and mail servers, emphasis in this context being on the word "one". So therefore if I'm going to set aside a large slice of time to spend in the USA, he needs to know in order to make sensible provision to support the clients until my return.

He's very keen that I go out to visit scarlatti in order to get my head together and so on. It looks like I'll be leaving sometime in the few days after Easter, for a week or so, depending on what deals are available for travel.

So that's a plan, then.

Three short paragraphs

My lost mobile phone was in the car as whotheheckami guessed, wedged between the driver's seat and the handbrake with the sound turned off.

The first call I took after I'd found it was someone with a detailed enquiry concerning suitable positions for anal sex in an open-top car.

And now I'm at my mother's in North Devon for a one-day seminar on "Aspects of Prayer" on Saturday and the Mothering Sunday services she's conducting in Appledore and Lavington.
