    Nice walk with the hounds, work snizzle followed by an appointment with the physio.

    Then the fun bike

    Cloudfare just wobbled, taking the forum and several other websites with it. Are the Russians hacking the forum? :neutral:

    WFH, maybe WFG.

    I might see if I can get an appointment with the NHS physio as I've been seeing the private one through work for months and seem to be worse that when I first went.

    Yay! Physio club! Currently sat waiting to see the physio. Frozen shoulder improving (bloody covid jab) so might not have many more.

    Get your next Covid jab in yer willy Seano - then you can go for the hard or the the soft option.

    'Basking' ? I have a Work lamp in the garage I suppose.

    Today will be... not a lot really. Ho hum.

    Morning. At work, still trying to finish the ball ache of a department review, now ten days late. Dog continues to be a pain at night but is becoming a proper little character otherwise - and is getting bigger! Have to admit that I’m on the cusp of giving in and putting his bed in our room…need to sleep!!! 😴😴😴

    WFC (Work From Cave) due to train strikes. Trying to get our Ukrainian house guest still to be lined up with a job, so if anyone needs an architect let me know. She has a friend er here who's a florist and gardener who's looking for work as well so we might get her to do some stuff in the garden. I'm totally ignoring the point that she's in her 20's and quite presentable.

    I don't think we employ Architects at our place in the UK, but apparently we have a recruitment freeze at the moment in any case so could be a similar story at other large firms.

    Ta Thistle. There's a bloke in Cake Stop who's an architect so have asked him for some tips about where to look (job websites, specialist agencies etc).

    Morning all, just. Usual shizzle at work. Just got company to sign one of the lads up for 3yr electrical course so he will be fully multiskilled. Just need to get the new guy up to speed then I can slow down a bit more. PS blues sky's and sun here.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    That'll cost you a box of crayons and a £10 Toys R Us voucher.

    Payable on success. Good luck if you can get the crayon kid out of BB retirement...

    IIRC he was very short. So if he misbehaves or does a dodgy job, you could slap him about a bit.

    I don't need an architect myself - our Ukrainian lodger to be is an architect and is looking for a job, so am trying to give her a few pointers on where to find one...

    Is the crayon kid taking on apprentices?

    No idea, he's gone totally awol. Even tried him on LinkedIn a while back - not a squeak.

    Still struggling on here, out for dinner with a friend later. This place is owned by an architect, presumably quite a successful one.

    Tis my birthday today and it has been spent filling out silly forms so we can work for a big company.

    I shan't be screening my self first thing tomorrow, that's for sure.

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I raise 2 glasses of Duff Beer to HD. Enjoy.

    The Move is almost complete. A few bits 'n' shillings left in daughter's garage, collect at weekend. An easy transit of M6 today, quite light traffic, no hold ups at all. Maybe people were staying at home given the chaos warnings.

    Cloudy when I arrived but as finished the unload sun broke through and now enjoying a coldie or 2 in the sunshine with the views. 😎
