    Morning,

    Rain, should clear, might take the hound for a wander to get away from the office. Managed to avoid being here all week but needs must...

    Also, new business cards due to our merger with London investment firm mega corp...

    quite warm up north. Second coffee so far, averted 2 censored ups, now time me to censored up a few times.

    Cleaner is vacuuming with aggression, not sure what to say to her about the matter, ask her to stop? inquire about her wrath? tell her to stop abusing the vacuum?

    Bought a tree yesterday, called up the farm I normally use gave a rough size, think I got it wrong, thing is censored huge. is it permissible to cut all the branches off one side of the tree so it fits neatly into a corner?

    Poker tonight and lycra clad cycling all weekend. No crudding.

    I've been given a bottle of wine by the owner of an estate we sold this year (they are winding down the fund due to the death of the former owner) for all my hard work. Vivino tells me it has an average price of £81.74, I think they may have over estimated me...

    Commuting in shorts was a good idea until I realised how much shoot was on the lanes.

    Later is family pub night and prep for tomorrow's beer and bikes - i.e., get my cycling gear sorted

    remember booking us into a private club for a team dinner a few years back, a couple of customer contacts were there too

    vp at the time commented on how nice the wine was, we were several few bottles in by then, and i mentioned was a special offer with 75% discount, he was most impressed at the value

    at least he was until he asked for the wine list to have a read, then noticed the starting price was over 300, he almost lost it but had to restrain himself as the punters were present, subsequent bottles were about 20, tight git

    later in the bar he also took exception to a colleague who'd ordered an aged rum for 25 quid, by this time were almost wetting ourselves laughing

    next posh outing we didn't invite him, that way he didn't need to worry about the prices

    @Flan: The tree gets narrower towards the top, no? Then cut it off at the right point.

    Sounds all a bit American Psycho Business card like and high flying but Sungod forgot to mention the prices were in old Lire.

    Today, i'll be mowstly running around sourcing material and using a tape measure whilst scratching my head.
    10 coffees wouldn't be enough. I'm feel pretty mangled. Heavy day yesterday and Toots 2 decided to get up at 4.26m and complain about her runny nose. Thanks Shortie.

    Laters.

    Morning all,
    Back in the office again today. It's cake Fryday so cakes and dead pig are in order. Out for a few beers again last night, it was very warm and we wound up sitting outside the pub. Still very warm riding in this morning, is it really December? Dark enough though. Boy sent me a text to say his cold had got worse could he stay at home, so I replied to say he could and that of course if he was too ill to go to school he was too ill to go to the party tonight. I suspect he may have recovered very quickly and gone in. Roll on the weekend...
  • Thank Lucifer It's Friday. Three *consecutive* days back at work and I'm shagged. Mind you, new client apparently thinks I am Awesome, because I've solved their business process clusterf*** and turned it into an elegant and seamless solution, in less time than they'd budgeted and without upsetting any of the "key stakeholders". You can put those pointy sticks away again fellas, save them for your next IT Consultant Lynching Party.

    Drinkies earned methinks.

    HP fancypantsprinter/scanner starts putting coloured lines on scans where no coloured line should go.

    Turn off and on again I say.

    HP fancypantsprinter/scanner carries on putting coloured lines on scans where no coloured line should go.

    Unplug, count ot sixty says HP troubleshoot.

    Unplug I do.

    HP fancypantsprinter/scanner behaves itself.

    Taking my mudguards off as its not forecast to rain seemed like a good idea until I had to ride through a flood from a burst water main in Forest Hill this morning.

    @ Flan - no problem as long as you don't need to rotate the tree after you've made the back end of it a 90 deg angle. Then it just looks silly.

    Work, work and more work. Doesn't feel like Friday yet.

    So am I. Plans for a quiet night have gone out the window, going to the Sussex in Twickenham. Great little pub, 18 different real ales on tap. Music either live or on vinyl. That's the 4th night on the trot, it must be December.
    Had one of your branches from Welsh Wales on the phone the other day. I tried to stitch him up but he noticed.
