The days this week just kind of blended into each other, with little out of the usual happening.

J and D had been due to depart last week, but agreed to stay on because of V and F leaving.

I was mostly on Reception, but did the tents when it was J’s day off. John, the two D’s and M shared the men’s tasks.

The only blip during the week was cause by a fly-in pilot. We usually had an approximate ETA for these arrivals, as was standard practice. This one still had not arrived, three hours after his ETA. After some angst and discussion on our part, the boss alerted the authorities of his overdue status. He arrived soon after she had phoned, and became most unreasonably upset that we had done this. Of course, had something gone wrong and he’d been down in some remote part of the Gulf country, he would have been happy about our diligence! With some people, you just can’t win.
