Morning folks

Work meh as usual, ride to work freezing as we enter the next Ice age, was hoping to get a ride in after work.

My head says no don't do it, my heart says your a wimp MTFU, will decide later. Don't know if I am looking forward to the Easter break now with the poo weather. I am sure the wife has a list of jobs for me too do.

Porridge and coffee await me, later folks

    morning all,

    i'm feeling rather productive today and i've done all the shite jobs that i've been putting off for weeks and am catching up with paper work that should also have been done.

    no ride today but there's a bit of an epic planned for tomorrow, which should be interesting in the ice and snow and the dark :lol:

    have a good day all

    and Waylander - miss CMC, i've got my eye on you 2...behave :lol:

    Morning,

    wake up you lazy barstewards.

    Off to work for an hour to meet someone doing an audit then off to Covent garden for an hour long meeting but means I get a train at 12.30 and get home 8 hours later - a waste of a days work. Hopefully new forks should arrive today which should ease the pain.

    Later

    Morning Losers!

    Well, it would seem that Huddersfield is leaving West Yorkshire, and officially joining the Arctic Circle as it's snowing again. It took me ages digging through snow (about 3' high in places, 4' where the snow fell off my roof!) and now those paths are white again! Lame!
    Today is payday, and as such, I HAVE to do some shopping. Living off beans and take aways has left me a tooting machine. So a big shop at Tesco is on the cards. I'm determined to investigate the area, probably by foot though as I don't fancy riding through these drifts.

    Laters!
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    I need to ride my bike, the weekend of drinking are starting to take their toll and I need to burn it off.

    F*@king snow!

    Not that I mind snow but it's the ice thats the killer.

    Gosh Kev sounds like my dad!

    And Waylander - after some/all of the comments in here you have a long way to go to prove you are the perfect gentleman!

    All kinds of censored are hitting the fan today here. Too busy and people handing in their notice everyday. I need to spend time updating my cv to get myself out of here and into somewhere with much more money.

    Cannot wait for Thursday to finish so that I can get out of here and get home for a long weekend in London.

    Still feeling like shite, bad manful, too much work to do, and it's unlikely that I'll get to head out and play on the snowboard in the best mini ice age in my living memory.

    With current employer or new? Either way good luck.

    'Noon mongs.

    Currently sat at home on the computer listening to the kids next door run the marathon up and down the stairs. If their mum wasn't such a fat lazy slag she'd have managed the five minute walk needed to get them to school :evil:
    Had another trip to physio yesterday, I can now move my right arm without feeling like it's being broken so all's good.
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    Taken a week off for the very same reason, workplace is a joke but, too run down to be in the right place an frame of mind to sort it out. All good workmates have left and i'm pretty much running show on same pittance so a week without should hopefully realise they cant have the Head of IT being payed twice my wage, asking me what to do and half my workload is helping a new guy because nobody is training him..

    Wooosaa... Kim Jong MD will probably end up paying two fudging minions to do my job instead treating current staff better, just to spite me and the people who left.. now where did i leave those Fukitol pills..

    Didn't really realise Gosh was considered posh. And not sure if you could be my dad actually. Think I'm older than you all think!

    And Waylander - you want to get to the gym, meet some people and stop being a hermit! :) (controversial comment I know)

  • ThewaylanderThewaylander Posts: 8,767

  • MissCMCMissCMC Posts: 545
    Cash - thank god I get paid tomorrow! How did dark green skinny jeans seem like a good idea on the weekend when I bought them?! (and the indigo ones aswell...)

    I'm inviting no one to the gym with me! I don't play well with others.

    afternoon

    Been in London having fun meetings all day, now on the train waiting to depart Euston - lots of fun. Hopefully pub when I get back in a couple of hours.

    Re: tyres - you need a dad with a tyre business, much cheaper :lol:
