Today's defeats began early when I was defeated by the hot humid night and woke at 4am instead of 6am. I suppose that could be classified as a victory over the alarm clock.
Then the weather defeated our office air conditioning system. Excessive humidity and hot temperatures could not be controlled and to some extent, nor could the staff who got progressively more irritable.
Human kindness all but defeated me as I was pulled every which way with requests from all and sundry to do this, that or the other. I did admit defeat, to myself, when the umpteenth person said, "I'm really busy so could you do this"!!!
The traffic defeated me this evening returning home. Despite leaving 15 minutes early I took 30 minutes longer to get home. Why can't those with whom I have to share the road realise that they are not driving in Delhi, Hong Kong, Taipei!
And finally I admitted defeat on the stitching front and instead of picking up a needle and continuing on with the two all-but-completed projects, I went looking at my stash of charts and found this.
