I hate it. I’ve got the use of a company vehicle – a Ford Galaxy. It’s great, heated windscreen so it’s easy to defrost. The fact it has a seperate key for the doors and ignition means I go out in the morning, start it up, go back inside and have a coffee, then go out 10 minutes later and it’s all de-iced and toasty warm* 🙂
Of course, the other day I had the van (no heated windscreen 🙁 ), and left a friend’s house at 4am so I had to de-ice it, drive home, then de-ice it AGAIN when it was time to go to work 😐 – bugger…
Still, 8.5 weeks until I’m off to Morocco 🙂
Work is going well – hopefully we’ll keep getting the orders in and general repair work seems to be consistent at the moment so (at the moment), my job appears to be fairly secure.
I’m glad I paid off my credit cards so I have minimal debt right now – you can never tell what’s gonna happen around the corner – seems businesses are failing here almost daily and I want to get my savings up so I have a ‘buffer’ against the unknown.
Whoa…reading back on that, I realised I might actually have picked up some maturity somewhere…
Well, the weekend starts tomorrow. My plan is to have a quiet one, do stuff around the house, and maybe goto the cinema to see ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘ – the trailers look pretty good, all I have to do now is get someone to go with (nothing sadder than going on your own) – I asked Harriett if she’d like to go, she’s pretty down at the moment so it might be good for her too – and there’ll still be time to grab a few beers afterwards 🙂
That’s me – a man with a (short term) plan.
Oh, and I got the best possible compliment a few days back – kept me smiling ever since 🙂
Life is good.
