A metaphorical slap in the face...

You know how sometimes you put 200% effort into something and all some people can do is carp + criticise + question your judgement no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try...

I suppose days like today are good for the soul... teaching humility. Fortunately, the majority opinion was that the criticism was totally unfounded.

All in all, not good for the stress levels + skin rashes. And all this served as a distraction to the job in hand: a full day of final rehearsals for our school play (first performance tomorrow), for which I am sound + music co-ordinator, with a team of 4 pupil technicians.

Oh well, chin up, look ahead, move on... but dear Lord, just make sure that days like today don't happen TOO often please. I really couldn't cope if they did!
