It must be the way the stars are mis-aligned today, for I have nothing good happening all morning. I was awoken by a text messsage at 5am from a client in a different time zone bringing bad news. He cancelled an order he confirmed last week, one that I had been working on for weeks. I saw US$10k vanish into thin air.
I slept fitfully after that and woke up late. It was a mad rush getting laundry done (on quick cycle) and Rusty walked in the rain. Luckily I managed to get SK to school just before the school gate closed.
As if losing one deal wasn't bad enough, another project that I had been working on also developed problems. Instead of earning a tidy profit, I ended up losing thousands. In our line of business, we don't do money losing deals but sadly this time, the tides are against me. It's an expensive lesson but I'll treat it as tuition fee. Sigh.
You can imagine I'm feeling quite blue by now and it's only 1.30pm. I hope for miracles in the afternoon.
