Day before planned vacation has gone wrong

So, I was planning to take a week’s vacation from Tuesday to next Monday, so that I would work from home on Monday with no office work. However, my plan got rebuked by one of my teammates, as he wanted me to take a session for the entire team about some topics related to the team or work. Initially I was hesitant about taking the session and later on I was forced to a certain extent to go on with the session. I almost got pissed off wanted to say NO to him, however still my promotion was due, I was little hesitant about my tone and language. I accepted the invitation for the session, and I had no other option other than to work on Monday, the day before my long vacation and my entire vacation plan was spoiled. Now, I had to make a simple deck to detail the slides and approach I followed for one of the proposals I had worked earlier. I felt little bit nervous since, the approach was framed a year back and I almost forgot about the entire process and had to read through documents again to gain exposure about the approach.

To my surprise, everything was in opposite direction and on the day, I joined office after my long vacation, I had no work and was just killing time. Initially I thought my manager was kind enough to not allocate work on day I come back from the vacation, but on reality my entire team had no work to do. So, next day I came to office anxious enough anticipating one or more opportunity assigned to me and to my surprise I didn’t get any work and was asked to share some capability deck to my colleague, which I didn’t expect out of nowhere.
