Ctrolled panic

There is a lot to organise in a short time at home. The cats and the dog need to have vaccinations, and have suitable care arranged for them. Then C and I need accomodation in Chch, and that is proving trickier than I thought. I presumed Hayley wouldn't mind having the sprog as well, but I was wrong. I don't feel up to pussyfooting round a less than enthusiastic host, so we may well decamp to Flick's where we are both assured of a warm welcome. And then he who is going to Afganistan has spread the potential Ctents of his bags liberally round the house, and is getting his tense "focussed on the trip" grumpiness starting to surface.

And I would really have liked to go south and just Ccentrate on my thesis and leave the family out of my calculations for a month and to focus. I am feeling as if I have lost an opportunity, and R has gained one. And in the words of millions of people all over the world, it just doesn't seem fair!
