    Windy here.

    I had to go into my garden and rescue things. One of my pots has broken so I need to find another. I inherited from previous owners.

    Too many meetings.

    Simpsons-esque in Harrogate. Out for the monthly comedy night tonight, with the rather nice Majestic hotel being booked to provide a nice lie in tomorrow. Except, Big Consultancy want me at End Clientco in Liverpool at 9am tomorrow, so it's an even earlier start than normal with the added insult of passing home an hour into the journey.

    I'm avoiding a trip to Vienna this week due to "zero hours" left in the project....

    In other news because of that its Comedy night in Durham tonight - Gary Delaney....
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    Home!

    Finally; traffic's been crap both ways today

    And my doom has come upon me. I mentioned that there were only two more weeks to go after this one, which came as a surprise to the chap at ClientCo - he admitted he'd had an email about it, but hadn't really registered how close it was

    Anyway, he wants me to stay on until it's all done, but can't guarantee how long it'll be for, as the concept of "done" is a bit nebulous; but it should be before Christmas at any rate. I agreed on the basis that I want to take a couple of weeks off, and he's got to run it all by his boss, but that's probably the way it'll all work out.

    I'd be perfectly happy if his boss just decides not to bother keeping me on for the remaining work, or indeed cancels the whole thing; but while the money (which is pretty good) is on offer, I suppose I'd better take it

    It's a mistake that I made at AB Automotive. Got me another 5 fecking weeks of purgatory.

    And this morning the train was cancelled & I waited half an hour or so for the next one (see above for tedious details), while this evening the Manchester train terminated at Swansea due to "trespass on the track".

    Apparently it was a close call & the driver decided to call it a day.

    So it was a case of catching the Chester train instead.

    Interestingly, they joined the empty Manchester train on to the end of the Chester train & off we went with 5 carriages instead of the usual 2.

    It's not been a good day on the railways.

    The ZeitTea was lentil <pfffft> soup followed by some sort of twisty chocolatey bread thing from Morrisons (reduced of course).

    The Neath fair is being its usual pain in the arse.

    Never mind, it'll soon be gone.

    By Sunday all that'll be left is litter.

    I'm currently stuck on a train. Earlier there was signal failure.

    Sounds like it's raining out.

    *Looks out of window*

    Um, the pedestrian crossing is flooding where the kerb dips - yes, definitely raining
