did my driving theory this morning. turned up at the school and was asked to get into a car driven by someone I don’t know to this really weird semi dilapidated complex on the outskirts of town, where the test was being held.

thought I was gonna get shot or something. definitely something that would happen to me.

ffs @japes don’t keep us waiting!!!

Hullo everyone.

Just been on a tour of my old secondary school with my daughter. WFH now so just brewed some coffee. Have to test software upgrades and prepare for a big presentation in Manchester next week (and again, same thing, same place the following week).

Any Mancunian DiSers with recommendations of good places to grab something to eat and a decent crafty ale place would be gratefully received and probably receive a like.

School run again this afternoon, take the kids swimming and out for a drink this evening.

It’s full on, boy. Full on.


there’s no mirror in here for me to get a decent photo so you’ll have to use your imagination

black t-shirt, black jeans, black denim jacket, black lipstick



knew i forgot something


That does sound like me tbf

Seeing as I’m in here now I might as well tell you about my day:

Meeting a pal for lunch before getting the bus down to London, playing in Beer Merchant Tap F.C. 5-a-side team and then going to see Idles!

Loads of places do burgers :man_shrugging:
Solita, almost famous, hawksmoor, ‘luck, lust liquor and burn’, mr thoms chophouse might

Thai - not sure if Siam smiles is still there, chaophraya is nice but a chain place, Thaikhun is alright if you’re near spinnjngfieds, phetpailin is a decent BYOB.

Nice - really appreciate that, thanks so much! :+1::+1:
