Well that seemed to work. Another £4K now and a review in April plus he is trying to get 50% of my bonus paid before Christmas.
Does seem to listen to what I say and what improvements I would like. Looks like Asia will have to look after themselves soon.

You have outed yourself as a cunninglinguist and no mistake -all subsequent outbursts of xenophobia will be treated accordingly

Yes a total of £6.5K since July.

He wants me to sort out problems in Europe mainly now. Though did tell him the Japanese guy wasn't capable of doing it. Strangely enough an email came in from India 10 mins after the phone call. The Japanese guy is in bed and didn't know what to do.

Evening all. Dark and coldish.

Yes, I noticed this evening that a nasty rash of fairy lights had broken out all over houses along a road near me.

I also got a flier from our local posh jeweller in Blackpool today. He made the mistake of showing the prices on all the items, whether that was to encourage his posh customers to spend or keep us hoi polloi out of his shop I'm not sure.

Village Christmas lights were switched on last Saturday (just gone).

I have to say they look very good - nothing fancy, just strings of coloured bulbs along the eaves of properties and a few strings of white lamps around the Churchyard and the Pele Tower.

In our family, the tree was only brought indoors on Christmas Eve and decorated after the Nine Lessons and Carols from Kings.

The concept is that the youngsters start with a few decorations then the full decoration is done by the adults.
The children only see the full result in the morning after breakfast (they get their stockings on their beds).

Which buffoon decreed that the World Service should become Children's School Programing (acting out some nonsense from the Nutcracker Suite - "scary mouse army" when I stomped out of the bedroom) for a couple of hours in the middle of the night ?


WTF is that all about !


All hope of sleep now out the window !

We have a sulky cat. We went away for almost a day and a half and left her all on her own. This is the very first time
in her 13 years that she hasn't had either human or feline company and she has made it very plain she disapproves.
Oh well never mind at least the neighbour dropped by and left food for her.
