Like yesterday, for example. It's Reviews'n'Appraisals time, so I was planning to finish off
No such luck. First thing I found on arrival was two bundles of paperwork from the lawyers, on some patent applications. So that took a lot of reading and checking. And I'd only just started that when my boss turned up with yet another revision of the new employment contract (which has required quite a few attempts to get right, what with HR first not listening to what they were told, then not understanding it, and then several rounds of bad editing and/or versioning and/or formatting). So, read through all that again.
Then I could get onto the reviews. Finally started the code reading at 5pm. Didn't get too far into that, never mind starting looking at regression failures.
And next week's a short week, what with two days off, the code review and a project meeting, and three appraisals to do. So I think I'll have one day to get everything else done.
