It's gone. Got home last night to see the yellow notice flat on the ground and no tree stump. Hooray. Didn't think I'd see the day. I think they will be back to smooth the path where it was and remove the notice.
I didn't work on Bug yesterday because I was on my own again and feeling tired and didn't feel like writing. Don't think I will today but will start afresh on Monday with Chapter 2 revisions. Will type up Chapter 1 amendments tomorrow as said before, and probably do Chapter 3 revisions next week too.
Must get on with work now and seem busy.
