And before the spectacular, never to be forgotten, lunch planned for the afternoon I'm going to peruse Harrods.

I may be gone sometime...

Sorry as a contractor I fail to understand the principle of "a day off" can someone explain it to me?

I've always found Harrods rather vulgar, I've never seen the appeal of the place

It's a really a place for rich TOWIEs these days

I hate 'perusers'. When I closed my shop some lady came in and said 'Oh what a shame, this was my favourite shop to come into and browse'. :mad

Lunch
Coffee breaks
Doodling
Surfing
Posting on cuk

Its when you are dragged into court for the divorce settlement after the wife has left you because she never sees you.

Mmmmm, lunch :happy Might see you down there :wink. And even if there were some sort of mods meeting, we all have mobile devices (registered in the company name of course) so don't go getting any ideas...

You've muddled it up again.

Sasguru is the harridan who works at the Wimpy back door.

Oh you never told me - I had the day off too!

Spent it in the Central Criminal Court watching justice being meted out to some crooks.
17 years for one of them. And he took it without even telling the judge to ..... :devil

That's the whole point of Harrod's, shopping with a sense of theatre.

And the mercentitle consultant's are lovely. Particularly the gay ones.

Anyway I came away happy with a lighter purse so a win-win on my side.

Lunch for me was leaving at 11:59 for a quick pint then down to the music shop to try out Roland's flag ship new TD-30 drum kit which got released this week. Wow is all I can say. When I got back in 90 minutes later an urgent prod issue email was in my box at 12:01 and everyone looked a bit pissed off. Do I care?

Yes, cheers for the cocktail RH, last time I let you pick a drink for me :spank: When I said I didn't want the one with "nuclear" in it's title I should also have said I didn't want the one called the sodding "zombie" either :laugh

Just spent the last two hours or so clearing up the trojan that Nick found and got another hour or so before I can hit the hay. Could do with another one now to keep me going!

Hmmm, I started by saying obviously Beethoven, but then changed my mind and now am having an internal argument about which it was. Let me know who the winner was with your lot and will happily go with that. Could def do with another drink now :laugh
