    A no chance of doing real work day, which is frustrating as I've got loads to do

    Later must really get on the rollers, last night ended up doing family stuff - whilst fun, what about my training

    Morning. Feeling apprehensive as going back to GMC coffee place after a couple of weeks off bad tonight, suspecting someone may have also guessed I'm seriously job hunting. Oh well just means I end up with the shite jobs as usual.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    On train into town again. Went to see the physio last night and got my 3 times a day 'exercise' programme": will probably have to do them in the disabled toilets at the office so as not to look like a real weirdo while still having enough space to do the damn things.

    Onwards to global tax dodging...

    Having coffee and listening to Soundgarden in the office which is nice.

    Morning folks,
    Bit chilly out this morning, puddles were very frozen in the park. But it was nice and bright which makes things so much nicer. Overshoes kept my tootsies nice and warm so all was well with the world. Busy start to the day with big Australian order (nice customer not the one Spinner missed) and a couple of Japanese as well. They have been dealt with so now shirking as is traditional. Need to find someone to send on a mental health awareness course, might have to go myself as I have been put in the frame unless I can come up with a better suggestion. I did point out that I was a bit of a censored so it might be best to send someone a little more caring.
    Rather windy around these parts, beer and curry last night obviously nothing to do with it. Today being Wednesday I will of course have to go to the pub again. It's my responsibility to support the local economy by drinking beer. Until then more tea will have to suffice.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Probably better than exercising it in an open plan office though.

    Depends if you get. Bit of excitement about nearly getting caught makes it all more fun.

    Morning, arguing on the phone for a bit and now drinking coffee. Considering opening a stocks and shares isa but I also would rather spend the cash on hookers
  • Emptying boxes all morning. Then had to dig through the mountain of wrapping to find the glass I'd missed. Still searching for a few things that are randomly missing so far.

    Moved all the empties to the shed ready for collection later. Went shopping to stock up stuff in the place.

    Now dead tired again

    Had the latest edition of "make Chris less mental" this morning so as a result i'm pretty much done with thinking for the rest of today, at work in body alone!

    In other news the lady friend made some music recently, all her own work, can be found on spotify, google music and itunes as well as other, look for "Suzi Who" that's her! She sings and plays drums on the recordings but wrote it all herself.
