Morning peeps.
Ruby Tuesday which means curry tonight.
Another day meandering through life, as Arran used to say.

    Shrivelled gherkin day for me, I'm woefully under kitted for this weather, looking forward to + degree on the commute home. Onwards and upwards.

  • Meh, busy...

    Ran out of milk this morning so didn't manage the requisite number of brews before leaving work.

    Busy, meh...

    Got holiday stuff to arrange, meh...

    I love IP you wholly own and people need to more licenses.



    Today will be a mixture of overly long Skype calls, moulding things back into shape, preparations for tomorrow's dirth of back to back calls.

    Question, why do clients pay for advice and then decide to go through the same behaviours and outcomes that led to the wreckage they've woken up in? I suppose if someone hits their head against a wall and complains it's hurting and is informed it's a great idea to stop but continues anyway there's not a lot to be done.
    And God created the bicycle, so that man could use it as a means for work and to help him negotiate life's complicated journey.

    Depends whether they read the bit about telling them to stop banging their heads?

    Afternoon folks,

    Having fun with exchange rates today as the budget rates we set a few weeks back for next year are 'wrong' because rates have now moved as they always do. Hindsight is a wonderful thing when it comes to forecasts, as I have painstakingly explained to a number of smartarses...

    It would have been more fun at home as wifey just called me to say that the hound tried to hump a Doberman puppy that he met in the park. Fortunately it was (a) a puppy and (b) female, so good on Muttley for having a go at such a tender age :)

    Retrospective forecasting always works better than forward guidance. Ask the BoE

    True, Mark Carney opening his big gob today didn't help matters either. Still its all about internal results measurement rather than real FX exposures so a bit of a storm in a teacup really. We've tortured the numbers until they tell us what we want, so will leave the board to debate what number to choose. So tomorrow will be a corporate game of 'pin the tail on the donkey'.
