Hypatia's 2013 records project

I feel as if I'm back where I was early last year, only this time I don't really have an excuse, and the backlog is worse.  I'm starting having some counselling and at least I'm not as seriously non-functional as I was during my severe depression last summer.

I've got 48 groups of reports to complete (I can't even face counting how many individual ones).  The plan is that I do two groups every time I have an admin half-day, with a target of completion before I go on holiday on 4th September, which is what I've told the boss and my counsellor.

I'm going to report here one week at a time.  I daren't look too far ahead or I'll freak out at the workload.


w/b 26th August 2013

This is going painfully badly.  So much for promsiing I'd get caught up by the end of August - I'lkl be very lucky if it's before the end of Septemebr!

  • 1 set of 4

well that was a complete disaster - I barely had time to cope with what the week threw at me!

Current reports:

  • Weds

there wered good reasons why I couldn't complete the list last week, mostly related to people dropping urgent stuff on me.  Trying again this week

Current reports

  • Mon
  • Weds 
  • Fri


  • main target 4 sets
  • clinic returns

On reflection - I'm another one of those who underestimates the time something will take and then wonders why I can't get everything done!
