We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

On other other channel there's a big sugar cube with a two painted on it going round and round

As sure as eggs...

Less than two hours to go before the council's accounts are closed and the e-procurement system's been down since lunchtime. My, how Maisie laughed.

"I've all these orders to process and I can't do a thing!"

Mind you, we have have all the rest of the year in which to get spent up.

Fate relents and it's back up and running. It's a horrible system and not much fun to have to use at the best of times. These aren't the best of times. Every so often I hear Maisie mutter:

"I wish this bloody system would crash again."

An "e-procurement system" just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen - can you go on it and buy anything, like eBay?

It's a local government e-procurement system. You have to go on it and then find out you're not allowed to buy anything.

Oh, how I wish that was a joke.

And nobody wants to hear that the system is down.
