    Feel like an old man after the gym last night. Christ I feel sorry for most of you lot.

    Agreed with SG about the number of fridges, especially as they all need different temps.

    May head off to work soon. Hound walked. Espresso had. Dishwasher remains full.

    PS how expensive are censored curtains. and not the curtains MF and Seano peak through with every passing yummy mummy

    watched dawn from gmc towers, yesterday's was more vivid

    on the plus side looks like i've escaped the annual trek across the ocean for the ritual powerpointing, like waterboarding but the ptsd is more ferocious, 'motivational' (aka trite platitudinous ego trippery) sessions, accompanied by unhealthy food and bad coffee, tempted to sneak off to dubai for a bit of sun instead

    Morning folks,
    My Mrs announced that the big food shop would be arriving at 5.30 on Thursday and she'd be out. That might actually be a good thing as she's rubbish at the spatial awareness thing when loading stuff like fridges and dishwashers.
    Decidedly chilly out there this morning. It was -1 when I left the house so probably -3 or -4 in the middle of the park. Thankfully I was on the old MTB so wide tyres and flat pedals, unfortunately the rear brake froze and I stupidly pulled it harder so it was then frozen on.
    Computer system isn't playing so I can see my emails but can't access the system to do anything with them.
    Only on a half day today and the Mrs is coming here to leave me the car, taking the old man to the hospital for a check up later before the next lot of chemo on Friday. Day off tomorrow at least, should probably try to buy some Christmas presents for the trouble. Going to the pub later with a few neighbours.

    Haven't had a big food shop delivery before but have my first arriving tonight. Is there a protocol to follow? Should I check everything as they give it to me? Will they have a check list? Should I have a check list? Will they delivery person stack everything neatly in the fridge and freezer for me?? :?

    Morning All. First of several prezzie drops today to grandkids saves me having to go round Xmas morning. That's the downside of remarrying, effectively 2 families to sort out. Will see all of them boxing day anyway as youngest grandsons having his first birthday as well. Bit cold and damp around here at a badly sub tropical 2 degrees. Mrs announced her friends coming around later so can I bog off, pub here I come.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Is it Ocado? If so, don't worry about everything being there, it will be. They also refund you very smartly if you discover broken eggs or anything else. They let you know before they arrive if they have substituted anything, and you can give that straight back if you don't want it. I have never asked a delivery person to stack anything. I imagine they would come back and do a shyte on your doorstep.

    I have no experience of other delivery services, but I imagine they are awful. :D

    The controller normally has a good idea of what she's ordered and will spot anything that's completely wrong. They sometimes do substitutions where they don't have what you ordered so put something else in. These should be highlighted so you can reject them. If anything is damaged reject it. They always stack everything in the fridge and freezer neatly for us.
  • Tis the season to be jolly... Who the flipping hell wrote that crock of shite?

    Tis the season to run around like an idiot more like.

    HD Limited is slowly winding down for the break however it needs winding back up again as there are jobs to do in January when we get back. Must find my whip.

    We don't need three fridges up north, we just use the coal shed at this time of year for additional beer storage.

    Morning, spend our £100 M&S voucher on wine last night, it'll make me look generous when I turn up home for Christmas. Then I spend hours and hours making a venison stew to take down with me, made the mistake of feeding some to the hound and he followed me round closer than usual all evening.

    Can't believe it's only Tuesday, half working, half watching ski films on my other screen. The OH went in for some blood tests today because she's been getting dizzy and angry the moment she gets hungry, I told her that's what she's always like but I don't think it was worth the loss of brownie points as she didn't see the funny side...
  • 36 deg today. Rode motorbike to work, which helps big time with traffic shredding, but results in BBQ'd feet by the time I arrive...

    Day spent in a workshop/meeting. Two and a bit to go and I'm into witness protection so they never find me again.

    So, I take it you've met my Project Manager?

    Seriously, I have never been more, er, keen to leave a client site than this one.

    Somebody left some massive Polish liqueur chocs out in the office this morning so productivity strangely seems to have dropped sharply and is unlikely to recover as its the office Christmas party this evening. As I need to set a good example I think I'll only get mildly p1ssed and watch the ensuing carnage/see how some of the young ladies in the office behave when they're drunk :twisted:

    Steveo, sent some this way please client seems to be on one today logging faults.

    Last day in the office till after Christmas for me so not actually doing much, well less than I would usually anyway. picked up a couple of bottle cages for the new bike now left with the ever controversial what bar tape issue, saddle is black so theres a clue I guess.

    Anyway later home then work out why the tree lights don't work, im blaming the dog who looked rather sheepish this morning so no doubt shes taken a curious nibble.

    Have you any pics of Dawn? Specifically norkage.
    Not for me you understand... but MF is partial to norkage.
  • Evening

    Intended to go out on the bike this morning but didn't manage it. Spent all day trying to get some Christmas lights working.

    Gym in a bit - for the first time in years. It won't last - I'm only going because I'm off work and can get there before the place shuts.

    That'll hurt in the morning.

    @Flan - oi, it;s not that bad. Some of us are nearing the age where you can't trust a fart.

    Me went to get the old new banger back from undersealer bloke me. Left at silly o'clock and then got on with some real work.
    Cost £121 to get rid of some white asbestos roof sheets. 'Kin ell.

    Tomorrow a jolly in the old new banger and a spot of lunch with Mrs P. How civilized. It's the only way I will have a day off and avoid work she says.

    Sorry, just seen this. I think you are correct with the first one, the second is highly unlikely as she's on the pill and the third is ruled out unless she's been in the sun for a long time. Find out today anyway, fingers crossed there isn't an even smaller me running about in 9 months, that'll really impact on my new bike budget... :shock:

    Funnily enough I was full of energy yesterday morning and managed a nice* 40 mile ride on the bike.

    *apart from the close passes from buses and pensioners, and the mud on the roads which meant hosing down the bike when I got home, then hosing down the garden path :roll:
