Ray of sunshine

The August monsoon has finally dried up and the sun is out at last. It was even warm enough to go out for 10 minutes without a jacket or umbrella.

Against all expectation, the Pole skyped me about the dissertation that needs proofreading. She sent me a sample text so I could price it and I have agreed to take it on.

I must be mad - I've got a 350-page MS arriving any time soon. But I've been kicking my heels all week because it's late and, being summer, it's been slack workwise. Normally, a job arriving late doesn't bother me as usually other work comes in at short notice to fill the gap. Not this week. So I thought I might as well earn something.

Owt's better than nowt, as they say oop here...
