At the risk of this turning into a sleep diary, I shall just say 5 o’clock and a brief doze before waking up with the alarm for change. I know I shouldn’t put too much into small gradations of energy, but another sunny day has certainly helped again.

All of the payroll stuff, including last night’s last minute fix has been accepted, and the other bit of work with integration of notional elements into the accounts is ok too, with a nice extra of some paid development for a bit more functionality that they want as well.
