Morning all. Two separate school runs to different schools an hour apart, one at 8am one at 9am. Have to come back home in between. It’s a ballache I won’t lie.
I do actually always think a lollipop stick would be really handy on my tours. This might be it. My career is falling into place.
Morning, the boiler is fucked AGAIN. It’s making me despair, to be honest with you. Fella came and changed the ignition and all seemed fine for 2 weeks, then last night I noticed it didn’t light and it hasn’t this morning, did a forced +1 hour of heat and nothing. So fucked off with this, going to have to get him out again.
vegan patty’s sub of the day on humpdays so I’ll get a subway for lunch
Did your wife come upstairs looking flushed and satisfied?
It is for this exact reason that the greatest TV chef of all time is Ainsley Harriott. An absolutely exquisite broadcaster in his pomp, you cannot visualise him actually being a chef anywhere outside of a TV set or a cup-soup packet, although he did once work as a restaurant sous chef for a period. Could you imagine the stress of working in a kitchen with him? You’ve just seated 10 covers and the orders are flooding in: “Five tasting menus, three monkfish and a côte de boeuf, medium rare.” You’re concentrating on getting that fish à la nacre, but Harriott has just started to salsa, completely messing up your mise en place. At the pass, your hard work has just been undone as Harriott, gurning and wielding a comically large pepper grinder that he definitely brought in from home, has over-seasoned everything
Seem to be working my new job today even though I don’t know what it is, haven’t signed anything etc.
First thing I’ve written to my new team? That they all need to keep in check the fact they come off like white saviours in their marketing materials.
At least they know what to expect from me now: nagging
Your kids trying to shit you up.
I’ve got a day off - they cut the power to do maintenance in our building So I’ve taken it as a sign.
Off out for a walk then I’m recording for a friend’s record all afternoon when they turn the power back on
Laid in bed for 2 hours playing a very basic silly American Football game on my phone and now will have to work til stupid o clock
I have one of those days I’ve put aside for catching up on thankless crushing admin before it overwhelms me and destroys my life.
Hard to get motivated for that sort of shebang. Luckily there is a new episode of Monday Graveyard to help me through though.
My bf keeps putting my clothes away when they’re slightly damp so they then smell!!
I don’t think I can marry this person!!!
I’m at a (virtual) conference all day. There are regular “networking roulette” sessions, which I’m pretty sure are just randomised webcam chats with other attendees.
I may have urgent work that needs to be done during all those.
I used to put my wife’s clothes away and she would complain that I did it incorrectly so now I don’t put them away and she complains about that.
Flying back to Ireland, been a good five and a half years Scotland
Told my wife it was probably a ghost child, from Victorian times (where all ghosts are from) and it isn’t kind to be unfriendly to children. Welcome to the family ghost child!
Are you able to be there? Hope it all goes as well as it can.
