Mehning Losers!

After my week off, I really don't want to go back to that hell hole that pays my bills (just). After having been contacted by work twice last week, I'm once again raising the "I need a payrise" conversation.

I feel a little ill today, but it could just be that I cba with work and would rather be ill!

After 'work' I'll be collecting some parcels from a local shop (that's a clever idea UPS have, Royal Mail should consider it too!) and then try a bike ride and planning a couple of off-roaders.

Laters!

    Morning all,

    Morning futt buckers.

    CBA here as well but at least it's a later start for me as I have a dentist appointment, anything to get out of work :lol:

    Fingers crossed the yellow thing in the sky stays with us and dries things out a bit :)

    Anyway onwards to having my teeth being prodded and poked with those bloody sharp things the dentist uses :(

    Morning all,
    What a beautiful morning. Shame I can only just see a window from my desk, not that the view of sunny Feltham is particularly good.
    Glorious weekend topped off with a couple of pints last night followed by what will undoubtedly be a dull day. Could be worse though, at least I'm not going to the dentist.
    Where's Stevo this week? Did he say he was going somewhere?

    Painting skirting board when I get home... Get out.

    Morning,

    Stocktake, interviews, meeting, losing the will to live.

    Will need to get slightly H'd later to compensate.

    Sorry, but I need to restore the balance of the office by employing somebody young, female and accepting of un-announced gifts.

    Wish I could but if I've got my own cases to manage and if I don't do anything a) I'll get told off b) there's the possibility some of them will die c) I'll get told off some more

    I'm back :)

    Evening Feckwits,

    Now walking like a spaz after stubbing my toes when I ran out of talent and cased a jump in the snowpark :P Where I went had ads and signs for bike parks almost everywhere - could be an excuse to go back in the summer...

    O hai.

    Good news, everybody.....

    The car works. Finally. And well it works, too. Weekend was good as well - in addition to just about finishing the car (to find the s*dding battery had died after 3 weeks in Skunkworks), I got let loose on an 8k bike at Cannock and fell in love with an SB66 half her price. Damn, I'm fickle.

    Damn, I want that bike. However, I'm still paying for a f***ing cylinder head!

    M'eh. Life goes on. ......particularly for the car!

    Onwards!
