Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, already soaked walking Tigger, at least it’s a bit milder
    If the rain stops might just fit a ride in if not I will go to the local for a couple of pints
    Enjoy Friday

    Morning
    Wet here, the rain has stopped for a bit though. Off to a pow wow in a bit, hopefully it will be useful.

    Went to some fancy work related drinks on Wednesday night, turned up to meet my boss yesterday morning an hour late and still pissed. He had to pull over so I could vomit in a layby at one point. Luckily he took the p1ss out of me nonstop rather than firing me... I received an email from a guy to meet up for food at some point, not sure if I'm still being groomed or it's genuinely work stuff. I'm not cut out for this.

    Today will be full of frantically pushing things off my desk before another week off
  • If anyone finds a kick up the censored please can they send it my way? I could really do with one.

    It's fine, I'd say there was almost 0% risk of being fired by him in reality. We'd been having a laugh about hung over I was going to be the day before, and he's seen me like that before. In a normal company it probably wouldn't look great...

  • Cracker of a day, but didn't really take advantage. Had to go to chiropractor in town this morning. Tiler is in finishing up downstairs, again tomorrow. Spent the rest of the afternoon fettling bikes, not that they'll get much use I expect.

    Depends on the style of grooming surely.

    Morning, odd weather again was sunny then about half way to work it rained while being sunny then stopped an turned cloudy. Off next week so just tidying up really helping at the LBS Sunday as its the christmas market so lots of coffee making expected. I cant bake to save my life.

    Slow morning at the office on account of being tired after last night's free drink.

    Now waiting for my annual company medical so that's most of the afternoon written off.

    Gym class was rubbish, and too hot.
    Tesla's attempt at a truckla had brightenened up the day though :)

    You mean back to future trukula, plug ugly to boot as well.

    Maybe he should've used the delorean shape and just left the back open to make a pickup? Would've looked better.
    The truckla truckla looks better, even though it's daft.

    On way back from a few beers with old friends. Nice. Probably a hellish weekend of trying to clean a messy house.

    But back to improved domesticity no?

    WTF is “snagging”?

    'Snagging' - fixing little gripes and problems called 'snags'.
    Suffice to say, I only had about half a dozen snags after PPP. Which I am quite proud of.

    I watched a documentary about new builds. I think it was either a Wimpy or a Barratt home but a customer had 172 'snags' which she (the new owner) had reported and was struggling to get them all fixed.
    Sums up build quality in the UK.

    A great opportunity for typos, especially when writing a snagging list.
  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,737
    What if you are like me and the 'snagging list' is anything with a pulse?
    I wouldn't have enough paper.
