Hello my lovelies  
How are we all on this sultry Tuesday evening? I'm enjoying the humidity at the moment, having just got back from an evening visit to my sister - her house is SO COLD I was glad to escape back to my own. Her air conditioning was cranked up full bore, and she's sitting there in the cold, with a cardigan on....

On Sunday night we played Broadchurch Bingo - every time we got something that David Tennant mentioned in that hilarious voiceover, we'd take a drink. We very quickly had a tally of five, and then my sister pointed out that the actor who played the judge was a guest on Dr Who once, bonus point to my sister for spotting that one.

Have been doing a crazy amount of overtime over the last couple of weeks but it looks like things are starting to settle back down. And I'm glad; as much as I like the extra pay (I have that wedding in NZ next year to save up for!) I'm also feeling a bit burnt out. Didn't log on to work at all over the weekend as I had visitors staying with me, and the couple of days total break was so very welcome.

There's a lady who catches the same bus home as I do, and she spends her trip scribbling in a notebook, then staring out the window, followed by another burst of mad scribbling. I like to imagine she's writing fanfic. :-)

Good to hear that you're getting a break from the overtime. Like you say, the extra money is nice but free time is priceless I think. :D

Yes, and there needs to be a balance. I don't mind doing some extra, and will always chip in when we're flat out and just not getting any traction, but it's nice not to have the pressure there to do it. Very hard to sit back when you know your colleagues are putting in the hard yards.
