the tuesday thread

morning everyone, i hope you have a good day (and if you’re in scotland, a good primary school strike day).

first day at work at my new job went well yesterday, bar a few IT snafus. Already on my first job with a deadline of literally next week, which is a good amount of pressure that i geunienly do like. discrete tasks are my jam. also, the location is absolutely baller, right in the city centre of glasgow. excellent.

i wish you a great day


Working from an office? Woah.

Running the first session of this tonight with my D&D guys.

Mainly unsure if I can get my US accents good enough so it feels like crazy Aliens marine madness but here’s hoping.

Any chance you could record this t-man?

I was awake before my alarm, maybe my sleep patterns are getting back to normal

2 days a week, at the moment. it was quite refreshing! i got to listen to some music on the commute, and the bus was comfy and warm, and then the office is a small service office style, never worked in one of them like that and it was very nice. plus, whisper it, being with the team actually physically was quite nice



What a miserable day it is, too. Windy. Rainy. Horrible.

Could do with going down the shops but probably spend the entire day indoors.

On an emergency 3-11, which is both bad and good (bad because who wants to be working til 11pm at late notice, good because I get out of my late shift on Thursday and my wife has virtual parent’s evening and would’ve had to juggle that and dinnertime/bedtime).

But… It’s currently raining and the buggy rain cover is in the car, which my wife has taken to work. So gonna have to do a slow walk into nursery with B instead.


No chance at all!


Sad to see such a rookie mistake for you. Good luck with that slow walk!

Dog has been out in the rain for his morning wee and gone straight back to bed. Don’t blame him.


Just remembered we have a McLaren style umbrella buggy, so will take him in in that.



Today’s my last day before getting back to work proper. I’m lucky that I was able to take this much time but we’ve either been ill or shut in by the rain for most of it so it hasn’t been the relaxing, culture-filled week I was hoping for.

However, last chance to change that today, so we might do a parent & baby cinema trip, otherwise we might go to that horror exhibition at Somerset House. Then I’m off to a private view this evening being put on by a new client, and where I will see one of my oldest friends for the first time in ages so that’ll be nice, just need to avoid a hangover for work tomorrow morning.

Morning all :wave: on my way to London - got an all day meeting then work drinks after. Nice to be away from the laptop for the day I guess?

Speaking of which, there’s no internet on the train so I’ve not been able to connect to my spreadsheet for the :sun_with_face: DAYLIGHT UPDATE! :sun_with_face:

Nevertheless I think I’ve worked out how to do it. Prepare for shambles though:

Very proud of my boys at King’s Lynn for making it through the two minute barrier. It’s been a long slog but we got there, now we go again :large_blue_circle::yellow_circle::large_blue_circle::yellow_circle::sun_with_face::sun_with_face:


First time, no shambles!


8am sunrise here, not that you’d know through the clouds. I know you aren’t going to add any more, and that I already had a Brighton request denied, but 8am! We can get through this!


Anyway, might get a haircut today, hopefully pick up my new lamp to brighten up my dull room

Everyone’s stuck the wrong side of 8am… We can do this though :muscle:


Another day in the cloud computing mines. Cba

Woke up several hours too early, feel like shit
