Autumn oak leaves

In the park on my pre-work walk. Was absolutely exhausted after another poor night of sleep. Had woken at 4ish really fixating and fretting about the rude forum shenanigans from yesterday. Was all convinced I was going to put in a complaint.

But didn't work out - almost from the get-go, everything seemed slow, glitchy and crashy. Came to a complete standstill eventually for everyone and we had to postpone meetings and tell customers we were having issues.

Rather irritatingly, it seemed to get better for everyone but me. Stopped for a feta salad lunch and afterwards when I tried to join in the team chat at 2 - I just couldn't get Skype to work properly. Very frustrating and, considering these chats are to try and mitigate against the remoteness of working from home, it was even more isolating when I could hear everyone but couldn't join in.

And the meeting with the director had a special guest - a psychologist talking about anxiety and stress - and I couldn't really engage with that either. Was almost in tears by the end of the afternoon - and I had team members contacting me with queries and I couldn't help.

Gave up at 5 having logged a call with IT and made myself a strong cocktail with vodka, watermelon liqueur and lime juice. That did the trick. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and we finished off the Fast Show DVD.
