    Bleedin' elf and safety.

    Want to get an old dead tree felled right at the bottom of my garden and contacted the brick works who own the woods behind to see if it was ok for the fellers to access their land.

    They sent two guys down a flat path just to take a look and they were dressed from head to toe in high viz suits, had safety helmets, heavy boots, caps, thick gloves and goggles.

        In with the hoi polloi

        It's a Lego(tm) morning again.

        Stone me it was noisy.

        Then one of the brats starts throwing books about.

        They've all gone now thank feck.

        In other news it rained on me all the way down to town.

          The "mild banter" sometimes isn't exactly banter and it's a shame that a certain vote 4 years ago is still creating such bad feeling and division on here and in the country. I sometimes wonder if the posts made in the B**** forum were kept anonymous, would the same posters who go after each other in there find that they actually got on fine outside it.
          I tend to promote twats to the ignore button.

          It works well.

          Some threads have entire pages that are unreadable.

            Unfortunately I can't ignore them ... but I can ban them

                And it’s suddenly gone for torrential rain and strong winds instead

                    Role advertised, quoted, offered and accepted outside IR35. Not all is as it seems, however... (Ziggy, catch my drift?).
