My short contract finished and I have no work, thus far, this week. Something will come along, I have no doubt. I had an interview yesterday and another, different company, today. I will be job hunting as I go this week. Today I also had a Uni... Read more

Another snow day today. The road to Lincoln was open but our PCSO chap said to maybe not risk it as we are having more snow tonight and he was worried that I wouldn't get home again. I took his advice. The main road opened, closed again, re open... Read more

Today is as good as any, I guess. I am taking a snow day today. I can't get off my estate in my 20 year old Nissan Micra with no traction control, ABS or any other mod cons. ... Read more

Boy, it was chilly out there today. Poor Toffee was shivering all the way around the walk this morning. We didn't get up until gone 8am having been watching Kill Bill last night, round at Ken's flat. He has a big TV and I have a little one. Also... Read more
Saturday ride

Well, 35 miles in 2 and a quarter hours is not bad. I took the roadie out, Bluey not the older but far lovelier steel bike. I have a wee braking issue with him. I couldn't face riding Eric again today, he needs a service and I cannot motivate my... Read more

The Thursday assessment didn't happen. I am more hopeless than I thought, the assessment was Friday. Its the works diaries as they are Sun - Sat and they throw me a bit. Anyway, sat with Manager and said that I didn't want to hear my calls ... Read more
Assessment training day

Today at work I have a 1-2-1 training assessment with the manager of our team who thinks that I am a bit silly really. I am good at what I do, I know I am as the NPS (net promotion scores) tell me so. However, I am 22 years older than the next y... Read more

Wow, tempus fugit and all that. I had a D&V bug all last night so staying off today and getting on with some admin. When I was at the NHS, a D&V bug meant a mandatory 72 hours off work. Call centres have no such ruling hence why I feel like th... Read more

It's a bit windy out there today. Probably not taking the bike out. I did yesterday, for 9 miles or so, but not today. I have bronchitis at the moment, so riding was probably a stupid thing. Heigh ho. I haven't even walked the dog yet and a... Read more

After a bit of a rubbish week, I was ready for the weekend. I am feeling very old at work. The 20 somethings are really annoying me. Every time something happens they whoop like kids and are generally very noisy. I can't work like that and fin... Read more

I have set my target for 3 1/2 hours a week of riding through the winter challenge again - or 16 hours for January in case of inclement weather. I am up on the drag curve as I have ridden for 5 hours this week, over only 3 days. I must be main... Read more
