At 5.45 yesterday evening I was at DHL sending a package to Italy containing my bid for a translation contract. The timing was tight and stress levels were sky-high. But according to the DHL tracking service the package arrived at its destination on time – phew!
The whole bidding process was difficult and demanding, and at this stage I almost don’t mind whether or not I get the contract – I’m just so relieved that I got that bid in in time.
I’m off to a family wedding this weekend and am looking forward to some much-needed fun and celebration. But today it’s Friday and the working week is over. Here’s a lovely way to get the weekend off to a good start, courtesy of the wonderful Perpetuum Jazzile. Enjoy!
