I received the news I was expecting re my funding complaint. A reply was promised no later than yesterday - it was emailed a fraction before 5.30 p.m. - 17:29.04 to be precise. I can't help but feel that that is taking the piss. I had a restless night as a consequence, running through what I am going to do about it. Problems are huge in the wee small hours.
So the morning walk was welcome. No matter what, the dog makes it hard to stay miserable. Tennis ball in her mouth making her look as though she is grinning insanely, tail wagging so furiously her whole body wags from end to end ("... go on, chase me - you know you want to"). Helps to get things into perspective.
