    It's almost like companies will take anyone who can string a few buzzwords together.

      I don't know why but this morning I decided to put a bit of make up on. In practical terms, I've given myself another task to do before I go to bed.

        Sometimes these little things can make one feel good about oneself. Lockdown is difficult. Treat yourself!

          AS BP says it makes you feel better - so what's the problem.

            I save clients money and allow them to cut costs which allows them to automate things and so remove annoying people from their organization.

            On the upside after a few weeks they then only need to speak to me occasionally or when things go wrong (so removing 1 annoying person from their organization).

                  Post from the Llandudno Facebook group: -

                  Just wanted to say a huge thank you to HM Coastguard cliff rescue team, who spent four hours setting up and absailing down a 150 foot clifface on the Gt Orme this afternoon, to try and save a week old Kashmiri goat kid, that had been stuck on a ledge 40 feet down, for about 24 hours. Putting their own safety at risk to save an animal rates very highly in my book, and such a shame that the kid took fright when they were so close to rescuing it, and sadly lost its life.
                  Well done everyone you did the best you could, and I know you were terribly disappointed with the outcome.

                    Morning

                    Cold damp

                    Very quiet around this morning....

                    That's because it is half-term plus the hole is further down the road...
