    I fucked up two 14' long pieces of plywood. Plywood doesn not come in 14' lengths so I now have to cut 4 more pieces, scarph them, glue them together, mark out the panel shape and recut them. Then I have to chamfer the edges, the right way this time.

    Rain is forecast for the next couple of days as well but I'll hopefully get a dry hour or so to cut the blanks. The weather is irrelevant to the rest of the work but I could do without it.

    There’s another one landing next week as well according to the tea leaves
    I did that, I was leading a mahoosive contract bid for a well known PLC and it was a given that we'd win it.
    Then I jumped ship and joined another big PLC and won it for that company instead - you should have seen their faces

    The old mob did offer me a decent salary increase to stay, but I'd been asking for one for 6 months and they kept saying there wasn't the budget, then suddenly they found the budget when I decided to leave, but by then I'd had enough.
    And two years later they offered me 3x my old salary to come back but I'd taken the hump and said it would take more than that.
    That'll learn 'em.

    Popped out this morning to get some shopping bits then fuel with the wife. The in-laws then pull into the same forecourt with a puncture so spent the next half hour changing over the tyre. Range Rover tyres are bloody heavy!

    Well worth a visit.
    our mam & I quite often go to London to see whatever is on that's supposed to be any good on the art circuit. Mother being an artiste, dahlink. We quite often take a quick sweep through the Tate after, esp if it's been a dissappointing exhib**. You know-get one's faith back kind of thing & a dose of awe.

    ** Not been up with mum for a while, but she says things are getting worse. There's a bit of a vogue for 'padding out' exhibs, with works by other artists which are meant to be complimentary, historical contexts, counter points etc. But most of them aren't relevant or performing that kind of role. It makes her quite angry really-she says it's almost getting to a level where the curator or organiser behind the exhib is the 'branding'.

    Today I have mostly avoided trying to take apart a screen on a laptop to get at the seized hinge mechansim which has pulled the plastic clean out from the base of the laptop. It's my mate's. Instead I found an old coventional hard drive & have used that to install good old windows 7 onto my own. Good old windows 7. Never had it on mine-went stright into 10 on a SSD.

    D/l drivers for it off the dell site ATM. Unlike 10 the updates etc don't pick up or give you MS ones.

    Huge hugs to you and yours. Horrible to deal with as an adult, but to have to tell a child and try to help them through must be so hard. Love to you all and his best friend and family xxx

    This was actually Friday but we got back at 5am on Saturday morning and I started work at 7.40am!! Long day yesterday





    The plan was barefoot in the snow and repeat on the beach. (Well, it turns out someone had planned for a full on swim 😱😱).

    We didnít end up near enough to a beach so aimed for the quay, then they found out how cold the water was!!

    So we just posed in warmer attire - no one expected it to feel colder in Marseille than in the mountains!! LOL

    Possibly my least favourite pastime, car shopping. Now I'm back as a PAYE monkey I need to sell the company van and buy myself a car, it used to be simple but now I'm trying to work out what is better value- second hand or PCP. The difference is much closer than I expected and makes the peace of mind of a new car attractive. To make the argument closer low payments over the next 2-3 years are far more important than how much I'm left with at the end.
