... you're busy helping to launch a new newspaper. The tulip bulbs, which arrived about a month ago, remain unplanted. The garden remains untidy and unswept. (You haven't actually been out there for a couple of weeks, but you can see the mess through the window.)
You don't get round to reading your favourite bloggers. You don't get round to blogging.
But Britain now has a new newspaper, the i, so the 12-hour days have all been worth it.
