- What have you achieved today?
Played footy for the first time in weeks; scored one and set up one in a comfortable 4-2 victory. 🙂
Shooduv had another right at the end, but lacking that match fitness and the old sharpness ain’t quite there. Team-mates squandered a few good chances and were guilty of holding onto the ball too long, rather than playing quick passing football, but then that’s not uncomon really bunch of glory merchants some of ’em; always looking for something they ain’t really quite got the talent for rather than playing to their actual strengths. And Andrew needs to watch his mouth always complaining but can’t shoot straight and thinks he’s a striker when really he’s a defender. 🙄 Woon’t mind if he played half the game he talks.
Still, job done, enjoyed the game, had a good time.
Which is all that matters really.Posted 7 years agouphillcursingMember
Had a wisdom tooth removed. Bloody thing cracked in half, straight down the middle eating a seeded bread roll.
So what I have achieved is to replace one cause of discomfort with another. What I gained is a chance of comfort in the more medium term. Work could go hang after that.Posted 7 years agosamuriMember
Three things I’m quite chirpy about today, they may seem small to the rest of you.
1. I’ve been bitching for months about the ridiculously crap solution we’ve put in place at work for ipads. It’s so shonky. I hate it and I’d take the ipads off all the directors tomorrow if I could. So the Information director invites us all in a meeting today. Strategy architect was sat there looking smug thinking he’d won, director tells us to stop messing about, get a proper solution in, points at me and says ‘whatever he wants, make it happen. The door’s the wooden thing in the wall’. (Which was an awesome result as far as I was concerned)
2. Proof of concept for a new strong authentication system started about 11am, finished and succesfully working at 4pm. Very happy with that.
3. Got home, no curtains in the master bedroom. I’ve spent all myu time since putting up a new curtain rail with this massively complicated pulley system that only works if the gap in the rail is exactly 5.56543654mm the entire length. After much tolerance adjustment with a bastard file, it now runs the entire length like silk.
So, yeah, mostly happy.Posted 7 years agoianpinderMember
Dd, just a small bike ride planned for the beginning of the year, nothingto hard.
De – still a way to go, 3 months left till the ride. 30kg to shift. 3 more weeks of work to go. Then hard training and massive sales of pretty much everything I own. Should be an interesting 3 months followed by an even more interesting 5 months.Posted 7 years agohandymanMember

Morning – submitted to the full city council including mayor how to rebuild our city better than it was in the past.
Afternoon – Worked out a way to save a significant heritage building from demolition and give it a new life (hopefully).
Typical sort of day at the moment in a totally atypical environment within a devastated city.Posted 7 years ago
