    Office via the toll road so up early without a run, hounds looked a bit disappointed at coming home after only 2 miles.

    Later I will be supporting Brighton

    Passing through sunny Brixton on the train. Not many meetings today, which is good, have managed to bin a few time wasters. I can feel a coffee and a pasty coming on...

    Nope, drive Panzer to a suitable train station on the edge of suburbia, hop on train direct to Victoria. Train prices from Sevenoaks are a complete ripoff so best avoided unless drinking in town - and I get to do some 'Panzercise' on the country roads before I get to suburbia :)

    Taxi duty today, mother to specialist and a few other errands. Not a big deal, was cool and windy.

    Fixed a couple of lights in the shed. Trying to figure out a design for new storage stuff in the office, which is (a) easy to make and (b) functional and (c) pretty is proving a tricky task.

    I'm finding it hard to be interested in my job too.

    Early start this morning unsuccessfully trying to contact Aus. Might try again tomorrow.

    You doubted I had country lanes....it was a perfect example - only missing a bit of cow sh1tt.

    Afternoon folks,
    Busy day of wfw, managed to wobble in at least. Still utterly knackered, only had a bout 4 hours kip. Way too much going on for my tiny mind to deal with.
    What's the job HD? Can I apply and wfh?

    True, although we need to distinguish between the sticks and where Pinno lives, which is where you get the Morlocks and the Eloi.

    No I don't think it was. My aerial was pointing SE but I think it needed to point NE, great circles and all that.
