The gloomiest day of the year

That’s what the BBC told us about today.  And I must say that with driving rain and a chilly wind,  plus a number of work frustrations, I agree.  All set up for a conference call at 1 p.m. between me and two others, but the phone remained resolutely silent.  A newsletter I’ve been trying to publish for two weeks now remains incomplete for reasons beyond my control.  People aren’t returning my calls.
