Morning,

Got to drop R off with his dad, then shopping, then the dozen or so tasks I haven’t been able to get around to in the past fortnight because R’s dad kept cancelling their days. Maybe a nap too (I will probably drop half of the things I should be doing for the nap). Then pizza for dinner, as per Friday regulations.


#6

Wfh as I’m not feeling great. Main job today is to write a very detailed later explaining to someone why they’re being a prick. Quite looking forward to it.

Might get a :pizza: in tonight, as is traditional. That is the extent of my weekend plans.

#9

Invited my parents up for the weekend and they actually accepted this time so I’m gonna have to clean the bathroom today. Done myself there haven’t I.


#10

Help out a total n00b here, what does TV stand for, see it used a lot. Also ATB?

I’m currently sitting in my big coat in work trying to warm up a bit. Nothing really happening until dinner. My wife found some hot and spicy chicken goujons in the back of the freezer. I don’t know why I’m so excited about this but I actually can’t wait to get them into a wrap with a bit of cheese and barbeque sauce. Might even get a few onion rings on the go and live life like a proper child


#11

Morrrrrning. Couldn’t get to sleep until 4am :weary: I am very tired now. Might snooze on the sofa later.

TV = thinly veiled = girl/boyfriend/partner

Comes from the idea that someone would say “Oh, my girlfriend…” and another would repond with “thinly veiled brag that they have a girlfriend”.

@hesastopsiiiiign

ATD? All time dog; bff, best mate


#15

Urgh.


#16

Day off today.

• The plumbers coming round to fix the major leak in the bathroom.
• Get a hair cut
• Might stick a lamb casserole in the slow cooker
• Might go to the gym for the first time in ages.

Or i might spend all day watching Black Mirror


#17

Just all the being-made-homeless admin etc.

Busy day at work too.

Whyyyyyytttttttyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy


#18

Morning all.

cba levels: critical

Weekend plans: tbc

Solar panel update: still hanging off. Estate’s solution is to put up a bunch of tape and have a load of guys in hi-vis vests standing about saying, “can’t go down there mate.” Classic estates.


#19

The fuck have you got against disabled toilets, “pal”?


#20

Morning all. Going back to the Midlands today en route to the Merseyside derby tonight (could have done without reading that Everton haven’t lost a cup tie at Anfield in any current competition, but hey ho).
