    Yep cooler which is rubbish. Hybrid commute on the rebuilt singlespeed will be a challenge with the forecasted weather

    It's sunny so it will be fine.

    Didn't see much coronovirus on the train this morning, when it eventually turned up.

    Pretty good drive into The Big Smoke this morning, even considering I set off about 6:15am. Thanks Gawd for company underground car parks. Now a bit tired though, so more coffee is required...

    Office quite quiet so we can spread out a bit.

    Virus free so far and intending on staying that way as I've got a 50th house party to go to on Saturday night.

    Just normal business here interspersed with reports of empty shelves and a lack of toilet roll.

    Just normal business here interspersed with reports of empty shelves and a lack of toilet roll.

    My local supermarket was out toilet paper, pasta, pasta sauce, anti bac gel and most pain killers. its somewhat chaotic.

    Anyway waiting to be sent home after a plague bringer was reported here, everyone is now looking in horror is someone sniffles, sneezes or coughs.

    I think there will be less than the recommended head count but I might take a respirator from our spray booth just in case.

    Written a load of blurb on replacement assessments for all the exams this summer, the Professional Body stuff can be jibbed until the NMC et al make a comment. All a just in case, it would require someone on serious pay to make a serious decision.

    Now onto other meh problems.

    Visited the bike shop earlier to swap some Di2 cables, half of those provided are far too short for realist use.

    Hound is happy shes had a few walks today.

    Wondering whether to make a break for it soon as the traffic looks quite good (for Central London rush hour that is).

    Evening all. Just spent an afternoons being looked after our country's finest nhs staff after being overcome with something nasty. I have to say their professionalism in the light of the beer virus is unreal. After a liberal dose of finest nhs oxygen and various tests they graciously let me out the back door so as not to exposed to the hoards of coughing people in [email protected] reception. Whilst waiting for a lift back I watched numerous taxi,s disgorge more people whilst disguised behind diy dust masks. I was glad to get away sharpish with nothing more than a few blood test holes and numerous ecg pads. Night ride called off for obvious reasons. Boss happy it's not an LTA just a major review of certain procedures. It was amazing what stuff people said when they think your unconscious, sadly for them whilst I couldn't respond then I heard everything. Tomorrow will be interesting for some. ;) PS I'm fully recovered, luckily.

    Working on top of a kiln and felt ruff, Co amongst other iffy substances. Give me evostick any day. Somebody forgot to do something and it wasn't me for a change. 2nd experience in 3yrs with 2 different companies in completely different industries. Companies don't consider what they can't see or hear when doing risk assessments. OOPS

    Have you been affected by dodgy substances in situations that weren't your fault? You may be entitled to com-pen-say-shun. Call Sue, Grabbit and Runne on 0800-givemeyourmoney. Anyways, at least you're still alive.
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 7,306
    Tempted, however i prefer to make someone's life awkward and get my own back for a change.

    Do they not give you gas monitors?
    I was lucky that I realised something was up when I suddenly forgot how to write and there was a funny smell, and I was halfway out when my alarm went off.
    What really pissed me off was that everybody refused to record it so nobody else knows it's a hazard for next time.

    Nice and spacious on the train home for a change. This pandemic has some plus points.

    Cheers folks. That would be a no to the monitor, however suspect a couple will be ordered tomorrow along with some filters for my respirator from previous place. My last company learnt their lesson and revamped procedures and plant to minimise a reaccurance. I'm about due a wage increase as well, let's see what happens. Seriously I just want the job safe and several idiots to listen to people with experience rather than ignore them. Just because we're old doesn't mean we don't know stuff.

    Blimey Oxo, you were lucky if it was carbon monoxide.

    Stay safe all. Tomorrow may be my last day in the office for a while.

    Give her some kudos from me.
