Well that would dampen one's ardour, spesh at this time of year, brrrrrr
 
I was thinking as I drove home tonight - bad habit - thinking and driving- it's only just over a week since we were enjoying a pint of Doom with you - well BM was, I was on the grape juice.  Doesn't time fly? .............
 
Hark, what was that?............there it is again - a hoopoe.  Oh, it's BM playing with his Birds (no, not Byrds) CD, now that takes me back to sunnier climes in Portugial, but I think I'd prefer to be in Cornshire at least there you know you're likely to meet peeps from all over the UK. some of whom are OK ( present company included natch!).  Most of those we encountered in Portugial I'd rather not have met, and anyway their kids should have been in skool, that's why we went at the time of year that we did.
 
Are you still doing split shifts?

But nice and refreshing after a stinking hot day in a stinkingly hot kitchen.
 
Tell me about it. I've already reverted to having to work out what day of the week it is!
 
Why do you play CDs of burds? Is it to tease CM by fooling him into thinking that a whole flock of feathered snacks has just wandered into the house? Yes, people down here laugh at the 'cracking down on truancy' theory when we see swarms of sprogs being towed around St. Ives during term times. Teachers swear blind that you can't just take your kids out of skool whenever you feel like taking a holiday but the evidence seems to contradict this somewhat. Maybe exams are now so easy that pupils only have to attend on a part-time basis.
 
Aye, lad. Split shifts is the norm but at least you get a decent snooze break between them. That said, the whole world and his dog are getting married at t'Castle next week. So, what with that and the non-workers bank holiday I don't anticipate seeing much of the outside world in the near future.

If you can't stand the heat................I've been splashing about in my natural element this evening.  Come on in the water's lovely, and hardly anyone else there, unless you count some rather blobby sprogs.
 
How do you do that when they're all the same - get up, go to work, go home, go to bed? Or in your case get up, go to work, go home, go to work, go home, go to bed.
 
It really must be getting to you again.  Laddette perhaps, but not lad - especially after your concept of a contour map.

Beaches starting to fill up down here. Weekend will be sardineville on 'Meor, 'Gwidden and 'Minster this weekend.
 
Precisely. Now all I have to do is work out who I am and then I should be able to start guessing what day/month it is!
 
It was only a theory. I could never get the hang of map-reading anyway.

Well in that case I'll stay here.
 
So life is back to normal again?  A bit of deja vu.  I didn't like it when you were not gainfully employed.
 
Theory is all well and good but I'm a tactile person.

A wise move. Typically after a week of blazing sun it has gone grey and moist for the Bonk Holiday. And some people say that god doesn't exist and others say that god is a kind person. Clearly neither group is right!
 
What's a life? More like reja-vu as I get the distinct impression I will have already done this yesterday and tomorrow. That was just schadenfreude on your part because you did have to go to work!
 
Well, having done a fair bit of refurb work a couple of years ago I can assure you that tacking tiles on is the easy bit, it was the grouting that drove me round the bend. Hence I am definitely a plasterpaint not a tactile person.

See, you've done it again, missed the point I was endeavouring to make.  I didn't like the effect that being unemployed was having on you.  There are days when I would prefer not to go to work but mostly I have to confess that I enjoy what I do. What a strange person - but then you already know that.

But it didn't have any effect on me. I was just the same old sad act I was when I was in the Slop Slave Pits!
