Yesterday I spent over 3 hours getting our domestic accounts up to date in preparation for the completion of our tax return.
I was expecting that this would only take me around half an hour, but I soon discovered that I had left things to pile up in the in-tray for a little longer than I thought. Unfortunately I also discovered that I was already a day late in paying the credit card bill so will now be hit with interest charges. Damn.
By the time I had reconciled the credit card and bank statements and chased up missing receipts etc I had lost most of the afternoon. P was sitting outside in the garden enjoying the sunshine all this time.
The tax return will now have to wait for another day when my brain is not so frazzled.
