Finding out the planning permission to build 4 new flats on top of our (just 2 year old) block of flats so that the leaseholders (who bought it a year ago from the developer) can make a few mill has been rejected. Early xmas present to us residents. I am so pessimistic I thought it would be agreed. laughing

Driving home from the game today, I passed a Hillman Imp on the M27. That pleased me. Not passing it, just seeing someone pootling along in a Hillman Imp. That said, I'm happy that it was someone else driving it - I wouldn't feel that way if it were a Citroen DS.

Waking up to the rain hammering on the windows, snuggled under a warm duvet, in the knowledge that Mrs_CS and Teenage Mutant have to go out and I've got the day off...

When you'e had about 8 hours sleep in 3 days

The wife arranges the Xmas karaoke night.

So you wear your Xmas jumper get on stage and absolutely nail Driving Home for Xmas and bring the house down...

On a night where every other singer is John  Legend/Bonnie Tyler/ Journey/John Bon Jovi etc and are actual professional singers.

Damn who needs drugs/booze.. the accolade of an audience when you know you can' actually sing but something just "happened 

Wow

So was a bit worried about the traffic this morning.   Wasn't doing the normal run.  I had a meeting at 10:30am in Poole, so swerved the A35 and Christchurch in general.  Didn't bother following the satnav - just followed the road signs, once to my peril.   For some reason, there are a couple of roundabouts that you have to go straight over, but the signs point you to the first exit.  Perhaps zey are confusing ze Germans   Confused the fuck out of me as the country lane I had to u-turn on looked like it was heading nowhere but a cow's arse.

However, I got there eventually, and my keen(ish) sense of navigation brings me in on the road that skirts the lake.   

It was not unlike OutRun.

Yes!  Science proves that men having a cold is worse than whatever women moan about,   like childbirth and shit.

 Of course it’s worse than child birth.

Ask yourself how many times you have heard a man say “wouldn’t it be nice to have another cold?”

Have some respect @pap, that's the Holes Bay that is, it's not a lake!!

Did you notice the reduced 50mph speed limit around the bay? That was because twats in their Subaru Imprezzas (are they still a fashion item) decided to leave the road on more than one occasion. Obviously the gently curving roads are too much for an Imprezza doing 100mph!!

 We get 2 payments a year. One colleague resigned last week, another today. I don't think my manager could cope if I did. Though I am applying for another job. Ahhh don't tell him.
