I think I should have stayed working.I am far too busy since I retired...I finished the contracts and so on for the Vault at BRAG. I have spent the last few days getting an Australia Council grant application ready. Left it to the last minute again! I got the disc made with a slideshow for the application and while at BRAG, I asked Trudie to check the disc for me. We couldn't open the disc and found after a while, that only a shortcut had saved. So I went home and saved the show onto a new disc. And then returned to BRAG to make sure I had it saved correctly now.
I found a big long smudge of light on the black background of one of the most imporrtant works. So home again I went, to fix the image and make a new disc. Of course. I then ran out of discs, and had to borrow a couple from Jordy across the road..Finally finished the disc and went back to Jordy, but his computer didn't have Office, so I wasn't able to check the disc there.. I headed down the road to see Rachael and when she opened the disc, my new slideshow was there ready to go.
I arrived with my grant application at 10 to 5, just in time to lodge my application before the deadline at 5pm.
This was a truly ridiculous day and I will have to get better organised than that.
