Back to work today. I admit I’ve been dreading this a bit, because there was a large project that was scheduled to take place this week, and I was to be responsible for the bulk of the work. However, upon returning, I discovered, through conversations with several of the other players, that all the pieces did not fall into place as planned, so (through no fault of anyone, really), the final deadline of the project is being delayed. Phew.
So instead it was a fairly quiet day at work. Not to say, of course, that I wasn’t heads-down busy all day, because a delayed deadline still means the work has to get done eventually, and I’d much rather get it done sooner than later, since this is the sort of project that is prone to last minute changes of the type that will likely involve significant hair-pulling and under-the-breath swearing on my part (oh, Sharepoint, how very much I do love you. Or…uh…not). But at least we’ve all now got more than four days to it, and I know I’m not the only one who’s more than a bit relieved.
‘Tis the season for Holidailies.
