    Default Getting flooded out

    Due to the severe rain today the room above the site office has flooded & it’s coming through (at least in 14 months we rip that floor out so who cares about the damage) so after much deliberation the design team has instructed the operational guys & we have deployed the high tech flood defence system of a bit of tarp & a bucket

    Simple, ugly but it works & kept 4 grown men amused for a couple of hours

    And you supervising as to not break a nail?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    I thought you were a permie so just sat back and let someone else worry about the important stuff?
