However, today I've been ironing some Dresden points, in an effort to actually meet a deadline.
It's quite possibly a bad time for me to be putting pressure on myself with deadlines - it's the first week of DH's busy time at work, which will extend pretty much through the end of August. During this time, he leaves at around 7, returns at around 8, and likes to be at work at least 5 hours on each of the weekend days. Also, of course there's work to be done at home, which he didn't get to at the office. It's a time of stress for our family. Maybe it'll be easier for me this year, since both children are at school. Except of course for the school holidays.
