Putting it to bed
A phrase that was bandied around a lot when I freelanced on monthlies. Everyone canes it coming up to press day; then when it's over, they go down the pub to celebrate "putting the issue to bed". Now, though, it's me that gets put to bed. I've been working earlies and lates, it's been intense. After dinner I lie down on the sofa for a nap, and dont wake for 15 hours. Sleep of the dead. Booklag, I love it!
