    Now that would be a riveting read:

    Chapter One: Wee on my shoes

    Chapter Two: Choosing which shade of grey I want my Focus in

    Chapter Three: Wilmslow moves a chair and saves the day

    Chapter Four: My battle with the neighbourhood mafia

    Chapter Five: Contracting's not for me

    Chapter Six: Choosing which polyester tie to wear today

    It'd be an Xmas best seller!

    This is the worst thing with official documents; you write the bleeding thing then have to get it reviewed; then you discover that some people have nothing better to do with their lives than nitpick about the version number in the header, the wrong spelling name of the bloke in ‘implementation control’, and the fact that every task hasn’t been broken down into subtasks and related to milestones in MS Project. Also, people use that bleeding edit facility in MS Word that makes all their comments bright red and underlined and impossible to copy and paste.

    Yeah, the last thing you want is for it to look as if anyone cares about accuracy or detail.

    I thought it was perfectly normal to write the PID mid project, that's what i seemed to have been asked to do in former contracts????

    Dull as tulipe!
