I was supposed to have gone to Brighton for a BiFest meeting today, but I had total spoon failure & couldn't get out of bed. I just got up half an hour ago and am sneezing a lot.

I'm really struggling to get my tax return done. The past two nights, I've sat down to do it and then spent about 4 hours staring at the internet and hitting refresh on my livejournal friends page every 5 minutes. It's a stress reaction for me, I think. On Thursday night I did spend 4 hours working on my tax return, but that meant I went to bed at 4.30am. Yesterday I managed about 2 hours before I had to go to sleep.

Every year I say this, but this time I mean it. I'd make my job so much easier if I actually kept my accounts book and spreadsheet up to date during the year as it happens, rather than leaving it all to the end. If I entered students' lessons into the spreadsheet each month, it would only take me 10 minutes at a time, but would save me hours later on. Maybe next year I'll manage it.
