Bloody weather…

It’s been lovely lately – as you can see from the latest Flikr pictures, London had warm, sunny weather over the weekend b) and since then it’s been really nice…

…Except for today – it’s raining, cold and miserable πŸ™

On the bright side, at least I hadn’t planned a trip to Cambridge today (don’t forget your wellies Harriett! πŸ˜‰ ), but listening to the rain drum down is starting to annoy me.

And so, I took a trip to the painters next door to check on some jacks we’re having sprayed. After discussing what needed masking off and such details, I said “You DO know these are to be blue right?” (we ALWAYS spray in Golden Yellow πŸ™‚ )

The look of total panic on her face was a picture, and it was a nimble footed me that skipped out of the way from a right hander…

Passes the time eh?

70 hours…

And we’ll be taking off for Morocco πŸ™‚

I really should start thinking about packing I guess…so much to do: get a haircut, have a shave (although I look kinda Muslim with my beard I’ve been told). Got to give Brian (lodger #1) instructions on feeding Gif – the cat will try to get extra food, greedy fat bastard!

And tomorrow is Ewa’s (lodger #2) birthday – Dennis will be back so we’ll go out and celebrate that, then Saturday to recover a little and off Sunday morning. Poor Harriett – she said she’d drive us to the airport, but didn’t realise the flight is 6am – that’s messed up her Saturday night out, she’ll have to go out Friday instead πŸ˜€ I’ll have to see if she wants to come out with Dennis, Ewa, me and whoever else is coming tomorrow…

I’m definitely in FULL HOLIDAY MODE now, and that’s not good – I have to concentrate on my work for the next day and a half to make sure nothing goes wrong while I’m away. I have instruction books/parts lists to finish, few quotes to chase up – should make the day go fast though πŸ™‚

Oh, did I mention I’m off to Morocco on Sunday? πŸ™‚

EDIT: I booked my holiday week off back in November so everyone here knows I’ll not be here – wasn’t a problem 😐

Until…Air Seychelles called the other day – they need their jacks tested for the end of next week. Now, we’re absolutely snowed under in the workshop and can’t afford anyone to be gone for a few days, so this is the one time I would have got to go to the Seychelles…but I’ll be in Morocco πŸ™

I’m toying with the idea of asking if they do a flight from Morocco to Seychelles so I could take a day off to test the jacks…

But NO! I’ll be on holiday…

And the week I get back, I’ll be down testing in Bristol.

Recession? what fecking recession – we’ve never been so busy…
