When you realise at 4.20pm that there are two companies that have not had their quarterly VAT returns completed, and that today being the 7th of the month is the last possible day to do the return before a fine is issued there settles upon one a morbid dread.
This slowly turns to panic as one realises, also, that it is likely to take a couple of hours.
There is a wonderful sense of peace and goodwill when one then manages to do the job in about 20 minutes because, thankfully, one of my elves had done all the prep work so I just needed to add the last few items and calculate the intercompany trading figures.
That Elf's name is going in the book.
(This is a good book, the one that rewards those at Bonus Time).

Listening to 0bx, I made this mornings bacon last night using the slow cooking method. Possessing an electric stove isn't ideal, but still works. I set the burner to 3 and let the bacon cook for a good 25 minutes per slice. Definitely a little more interesting than the fast method, no accidental burning and no rush either. (And no splatter). Might try it on 2 tonight.
We certainly know that it's not that over-priced, poorly disguised ham they call Canadian Bacon. As for what Scots may call bacon, who knows? If shearing is a first step in the processing, I don't want to know...
Loving the new show United States of Bacon. http://bacontoday.com/united-states-of-bacon-2/[^] I swear the host gained 15 pounds from the beginning to the end of the first episode. There are so many bacon recipes on this show but the episode I watched had maple bacon ice cream sandwiches that looked so delicious. I want that.... can someone make that for me???
It was, but now it's a reminder that I'm not eating bacon for at least the next 54 days, though my 6 year old talked me into picking up a pound of bacon at the store last night so he and his sister wouldn't be so deprived.
