    Well, I'm having an absolute pig of a day. None of my office applications are working. None. **** you Microsoft. **** you.

    Possible boom......

    Been offered a crap rate inside role, but it sounds a really interesting role, I am interviewing for a more mundane role on Monday, also inside but for a much higher rate.

    Weekend of thinking is needed

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.”

    Sharp twinge from the stomach and some low-key rumbling, suggests this is one of those rare days when it objects to not receiving any breakfast (other than coffee). So I've had an early lunch of a roast beef bap (wholemeal), and very nice it was

    Scaffolding gone.

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM and into the TD.

    Shirts into the WM.

    Walk walked while the machines did their thing.

    Gloriously sunny morning though cold and brisk.

    Three chem trails present above, rather a surprise in these benighted times.

    Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, bramble jelly sandwich (open) on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea. <- that'll be in a minute, I like to savour the anticipation a bit, and the sun isn't quite over the yard arm yet.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    As with all roles - what other opportunities does it offer / open up after doing it for x months.

    Big walk done (not as big as yesterday), and while it was raining when we went out, it’s now blue skies.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    Just had a message from Son. His works Dell laptop shut itself down and then started updating itself. Same symptoms as they had with a major virus outbreak a while back that he didn't get caught by.

    Phoned the service desk.

    "Not a problem" says the helpdesk guy.

    "Have you got any Xmas decorations up yet?"

    "Err, yes?" says Son.

    "Switch them off" says helpdesk guy.

    "OK..." says Son, but does as requested.

    Laptop starts working again.

    Turns out yesterday was the fifteenth anniversary of Charlie the Unicorn!
