How to impress people – especially your boss (aka: how NOT to be a numpty*)

So yesterday was my nemesis (you know – Monday).

Now for some reason, over Easter we get a lot of bank holidays in the UK.

And that, your honour, is my defence for not coming into work yesterday – I thought it was a bank holiday.

No really – I did. I got up early and everything, pootled about the house and garden doing stuff – I even got some of my DVDs sorted.

Well, the boss laughed (at me!) today when he got in…

A new week (albeit somewhat shorter)

So, I’ve been in the office almost 2 hours and STILL wish I was back in bed. Not because I was up all weekend partying – oh no, I didn’t even leave the house Sunday or Monday – and only left Saturday to watch the early football game, then back home to stream the Spurs game over the ‘net.

Yes indeed – I’ve had a very quiet bank holiday weekend – just me and my cabbage and carrots πŸ™‚

I must get a chunk of money saved up, so this kind of thing (minus the veg!) will be happening a lot from now – at least for a few weeks anyway πŸ˜‰

But – what to do while I’m stuck at home? well, there’s always housework…

But no – I’ve managed to pickup a second BT Vision box (think Sky+ box), have already opened it up and found some notes on t’interwebs about modding it. Ideally, I’d like to upgrade the hard drive, and merely interface it to a PC, but I’m not sure this can be done so (while looking into this more thoroughly), I’ll probably end up turning it into a networked media centre.

As well, as this, I still have to finish the patio (put on hold due to V and holiday in Poland – I’m not going to Poland now), fix the washing machine and cooker, tidy the gardens…it’s never ending when you start writing it down.

Oh well, keeps me off the streets πŸ™‚

But wait – if I was on the streets, surely I’d be having fun somewhere?

EDIT: I like to see where I’m getting my hits from, and I’m a bit confused by a visitor from town, a Virgin Media customer with the IP: 81.***.89.84 – who are you? make y’self known!

Remember me?

Well, that was another bank holiday weekend – did exactly what I was gonna do (absolutely nothing – no housework, no gardening – just vegged in front of the TV all weekend and ate loads).

The original plan was to borrow Harriett’s campervan and maybe go see a festival (Gatecrasher was on…) but she didn’t want me to go alone (yes, it DOES look like a collar and lead around my neck).

Still, back to work eh?

EDIT: And here I am – back at ‘Mission Control’. First in, all alone – just me and my coffee πŸ™

Oh well, at least it’s not Monday πŸ™‚ although, having said thatr, Tuesday’s ARE fast becomming the new Monday – weird huh? I find it easy to get up on a Monday morning (yesterday I was up about 5.30am), but come the first day back to work and I dragged my sorry arse out of bed at 6.40am.

Oh well, onwards and upwards – must make myself busy so the day goes quicker…wonder what I should do for dinner tonight?
