Tell me now

Granny came round. The wife told her that we had decided not to have further treatment for the boy. Granny is in partial denial, seeing no treatment as giving the boy a breathing space before curing him.
Found work particularly difficult. Mostly, I've been able to manage to separate work and domestic life - even when the wife calls and blurs the boundaries. But couldn't do it either yesterday or today. Far too preoccupied. Seeing all work issues as completely trivial, especially when people are defending their work areas or avoiding agreeing to delivery commitments. Hardly the best frame of mind in which to work towards getting buy-in to a new programme. Want to be able to tell them what to do, rather than get them to own what they do. Hopefully, that will pass.
