Work was quiet, but then totally mental before the break. Busy again now I'm back.

Summer is always quiet though, so many people on leave and at staggered times means end of June to end of August is slow.

Fancy a pint next week? She goes today.....

I wish it was quieter. I was hoping for a quiet Ramadan and that didn't happen and things haven't eased off since even though many of my clients are away. Amazingly lots of people still want to see me.
