      In other having-to-get-up-in-the-morning news, I had to tear myself away briefly to go and make a round of toast as I was feeling quite hungry by mid-morning. At this rate, I'll end up turning into one of those people who has breakfast that isn't just caffeine

          A relief for all concerned, speaking from experience.

          Morning (just).

          Dry.

          Cool. 17.1 deg in here.

          White sky.

          Wanly sunny.

          1022 mBar, 30.18 in Hg, 55% RH.

          Tuesday by all reports.

          The scamming telephone bastards are busy today.

          cheers all, but, like i said it's a relief, so hugs not required.
          I'm not a snowflake.
          sentiments appreciated anyhow.

          and multiquote dropped LM off, sorry

                Lunch was some tomato soup from a tin. Heinz.

                  A tortilla wrap with salami and cheese, microwaved for 50 seconds, a cup of tea and two chocolate digestives. And a handful of crisps.

                    Highlights of the hour-long planning meeting we just had included a muttered "So many PowerPoints…" as somebody looked for some important information, and the delivery manager who's taking over getting booted out by Teams for trying to add a note to a task, then loudly declaring "Bloody Teams is a nightmare!" once they'd got back in
                    I told you powerpoint was going to be big in your future, call me "Mystic Vet" !

                    And my 2 hour meeting was resolved by "Oh so we just do it the way I suggested in the beginning & you signed off but then after a staff change decided the spec was wrong? So bye-bye to the way you dreamt up last week"

                    You know I have been trying to make work but can't because a cockroach off its face on crystal meth could have made a better suggestion (I didn't put it that way when I suggested it wasn't my recommendation).

                    Only a week to go live watch the stress grow.

                      Did you have "the talk" in the words of the Clash!
