Deslammed, not destressed
As predicted, I ran out of slides at about day 1.5 and from there it was a lot of standing, talking, drawing diagrams, and pulling up code and documents on the projector.
I also had a bit of help from colleages on Thursday and Friday; it's really nice to be able to sit back and let someone else do the talking for a while. Particularly when they do a great job of it: it's a joy to watch someone doing a confident, rigorous, and enthusiastic presentation. (Yes Karl, I mean you.)
Still stressed, though: the flat sale was due to exchange on Tuesday but didn't. Last minute complications. We're still on, but still waiting for "any day now".
Visa interview next Thursday: so a final check over all the documents this weekend, and we'll be ready to go.
