Thursday's surfeit of Merlot probably affected my Friday performance.
I've had another six a.m. start and various hoop-de-doop meetings to jump through, mostly face-to-face.
It started erratically when the main person I was due to see didn't show at eight o'clock and the other two of us were left to chatter and plan.
I didn't have a headache at that time, just a weariness which I knew I could override for a few hours but would be difficult to manage for the whole day.
Between meetings I busied myself with non-critical tasks, mainly because I knew that otherwise I'd be making mistakes. By early afternoon I'd finished my last proper meeting and could leave to take my last calls by conference phone.
I'll admit to amiable jeers from others as I finished the evening rather early and headed for bed.
