The library continues to be a source of wonder. For the most part, it’s the customers who make or break any given day, although the ongoing staffing chaos is definitely colouring my perceptions too. I’ve spent most of the day dealing with whirling chaotic bundles of energy, and also being part of conversations laying bare a dysfunctional and demoralised organisation. It’s all rather draining.
On top of that, both Lady M and Lady P are out of sorts and/or under the weather, and it’s precisely the wrong end of the month so we didn’t even have spare money for our usual trip to the Plough.
All in all then, pretty much every hope or anticipation I had for the evening, that got me through a long day, has been dashed at the last minute. As a result, I’m rather glad I’ve had enough of today. As the great book says: F**k It!
