If there's one thing more dispiriting than working on a Sunday, it's coming in on the following Monday and finding you caused more problems than you fixed. It's a blow to one's confidence. But I mustn't let it deter me from getting stuck in.
The German trip is confirmed. I'm almost quite nearly looking forward to it. It will at least give me a chance to catch up on some reading and DVDs. And the hotel might have a gym!
