Mrs ghost has bought a load of 'heavy duty garden refuse bags' off the internet and they're roughly the size of pillowcases. Don't think we're going to be getting all the soil from the old flower bed in them but you never know

While a grain platform can be used for corn, a specialized corn head is ordinarily used instead.



Finding old bones when digging things up is always a good day. Means we get to stop work and wait for police and archaeologists and all the fun stuff.

generally you don't want really huge bags if you're going to fill them with dense, heavy stuff

I fully utilised the late night feedings to maximum effect to play games late into the night.

Until the wife worked out what was going on...

What games? I did the late shift, went to be after the 4am nappy change and feed. Perfect timing for launching fleets, and organising defences, in Planetarion.

It was a while ago now, but I sunk a lot of late nights into Dayz over the late nights mixed in with some Eve online, Deadrising 2 and guild wars 2.

My kids are 9 now, and I still play the same list of games. I think I need to pick up something else to mix things up a bit. Was looking at satisfactory recently. That looks like something that I could enjoy for more than 10 minutes haha

Shoes are, as of yet, undelivered.

Car seems ok, just a few things for me to sort out with my zero knowledge of cars, wiring or technology

It's got reverse sensors, but they don't seem to work so it just sounds like Morse code whenever it's in reverse which is mega annoying, so hoping to get that fixed or if not pull a random fuse and hope that does it

I just got a second key cut for it... £75 for the non fobby beepy one 😩

Going dark here with work corpses and spoilering because of suicide

I had the police asking for access so they could cut someone down from a tree on the site, that was pretty grim.

And, we had someone walk into the river wearing a backpack full of rocks.


Oh and the half dead vulnerable missing guy we found and rescued. That one was good though.

I think this was his parachute account, which explains the 9 year gap.

Its a pretty weird move to autoban anyway, just don't post if you don't want to post. Pissflaps at least had a pretty funny thread.

I'm still a long way off retiring, but it's not something I'm looking forward to. I get bored far too easy and having 5 days of the week accounted for already leaves me with far too much time on my hands.
It might even result in my wife going missing and me becoming a member of the patio pals

it's certainly something to make yourself miserable working a job you don't even need.

Chatted to my neighbour briefly this morning who was fully retired but was going a bit loopy so now does two days at a GP surgery

I'm all for keeping busy but I cant imagine ever enjoying GP reception work. Even the receptionists clearly don't, as evidenced by Google reviews of every GP in my town all unanimously saying the doctor is good but the staff are cunts

So 8 years on, her brain and wetter organs are long gone, her tougher organs are likely bloated and rotten, and her skin is likely at the stage where it becomes what they call grave wax.

Another 3 or 4 years and she'll be a skeleton.
