Last night's dinner was much better (in case you care) ;-) I am actually a pretty decent cook, if I do say so myself, which is why meal failures freak me out to the max - they don't usually happen to me. I fail in many other areas instead!

Work is still a bit weird. Boss is here but is still acting like DK will be around forever. We seriously need to organise client handovers - DK leaves in a week's time!

My client is also driving me mental. I am working hard on their account and trying to be proactive about it, but it's like banging my head against a wall. I've suggested loads of stories, sent through profile questions for the Exco, written countless press releases that just don't get approved and sent back to me (one has been waiting 2 months for them to sit down and read it) and generally tried to do something I hate (account managing) reasonably well.

We're due for a status meeting with client on Monday morning at 9am, and I have a feeling I'm going to get told off for not getting them any coverage. Which I haven't done, but not for lack of trying. It's just really difficult to convince media to place clients when you have next to no information about what they do, who they do it for and why it's worth talking about.

Some days I'm tempted to make it all up and concoct a fabulous story that will definitely draw attention. But obviously I can't do that.

So glad it's Friday! I'll probably work a lot of this weekend, but it will be nice to be out of the office and away from the madness. TSC has the deadly Man Cold, so probably won't get up to much.

It's Earth Hour next week Saturday at 8.30 pm, so if you haven't signed up to spend an hour in the dark, click the widget at the top right of this page and do so at once! Please?

Have a fabulous weekend, all. I leave you with this (gotta love C&H):
