Just finished eating some supper outside. At 8.30, still 31 degrees.
It was pretty much the first I have seen of the sun today. Why? Because I have been working on an adjudication response. The Christmas break has become the traditional time to launch adjudication applications, with their very short time scales.
When I started in the law in England, there was something called “long vacation” Which was the summer months of July and August. Not a lot happened in July and August.
There might be something to be said for the idea that adjudication times should not run between, say, Christmas eve and mid-January.
Everyone needs a bit of a break once a year.
