Is anyone else working really really hard for really great pay today or is it just me?

(I am a self-employed plastering woman who keeps confusing other tradesmen by being a plasterer by trade and having boobs, apparently this is Not The Done Thing in the North East)

I am not working for no money. This is a marginal improvement over all previous employment which was working very hard for poo poo money (and even shitier people).

I spent a lot of last year and this doing no work for no money and once I was doing that properly I felt much better because I no longer had to deal with the 'wonderful' company I was working for.


Now I am working for me and I am sad because I am still not earning the average female full time wage for my area. However I'm not working full time so it balances out.

Please leave some sheep for me, I could go for a joint of mutton with lots of roasties and goddamnit I've just eaten.



Anyone got any recommendations on how many painkillers you can take without damaging yourself or should I just take the normal amount and have a gin and tonic to go with it?

you can mix cocodomol/ibuprofen/aspirin at all their standard doses safely afaik

already taken painkillers so no getting pissed I suppose then. didn't know you could have ibuprofen and codeine-containing substances at the same time...guess that's how I'm getting through tomorrow then...


also no weed, haven't had any since I lived in london because once you're out of london you don't really need it to cope with the day to day horror of our wonderful capital...

Organic food's ridiculous, expensive and pesticides are still used, just not the ones which people whinge about when they refer to pesticides being bad for the environment.

Currently I drive a VW Golf, but it's not a GTi at least.

My favourite car was my mark 2 vw golf gti (2l) - it was a grumpy old man and I drove him very nicely, though enthusiastically.

Also the whole 'pay us 2k to drive a lovely car because you're young' is awful and I'm old and remember my first insurance on a 1.8l car being about 350. I knew someone who really did write off several cars (and lose her license) in the space of a year when she started driving because she loves audis and is a complete twat so perhaps the high insurance is justified in some cases?

What did he do?

The things party boat said. However just saying it like that doesn't do it justice as it meant party boat knelt in front of the wrong table and downed a warm bottle of lovely alcopop, in front of an extremely confused bunch of family and friends, then everyone got an eyeful of nekkid groom, still looking pretty drunk (hidden genitals, thankfully) as the groomsmen held up a poster about 4' high.

My family still occasionally remark on these things if the subject of weddings come up so I think my grump is at least a little justified...

Kluliss start posting in the running thread again so Ive got someone else who doesnt do 100 mile runs in 3 hours to post with.

If you do in return I will give you the greatest gift - I will allow you to tell me Party Boats deepest darkest secrets so I can make fun of him while you chuckle along safe in the knowledge he will never know who told me his secrets

I'm not posting in there again, they'll make fun of me for having dodgy ankles and doing teeny runs (I ran a whole 1/4 mile this morning but I didn't stop (except to cross a road when there was traffic) which is good?) and wondering about shoes because my feet hurt and not really caring about running as much as everyone else in the thread...

As for secrets, he's a civil servant, he's not old enough to have a string of mistresses (or for anyone to be concerned if he does (except me, I'd be concerned, possibly with an axe)) not in the right position of authority to be able to embezzle and is far too honest to do so anyway, and isn't important enough (you'll get there eventually PB) to have caricatures made of him in political cartoons.

So what I'm saying here is that he has no patio under which to find any skeletons. Just a few sad paving stones in the front garden.

Park runs: need to get back into them, don't think I want to do them with anyone I know because I pretend to be a train when running (for breathing purposes) which would make me feel (even) more embarrassed about running in a group.

It was one of those sporty prams with the big wheels. And i didnt even do that badly they must have hust been really good at pram running.

Ah, if they're designed for running they're pretty good - you even get to use it to put a little of your weight on, though obvs lose the use of your arms whilst you're running so swings and roundabouts.

Also, you're not me, you have an arm pouch for your phone, I use a belt.

Also also, wondering where I can get a sporty pram, maybe I can put the Dog in it and push her round the course...might help my time...

This is the purpose of parkruns, they're specifically so you can eat everything in sight afterwards but still feel good because you ran with a couple of hundred other people.

I hope that you didn't actually say the first part of this sentence...the second half (waiting until after christmas) is a sensible idea. It is always sensible to allow yourself to get something nice every now and then, otherwise saving for a house just feels really rubbish because you can't see any return on not having shiny things for the 5 years you're saving up...if she's been looking at anything shiny and pining as well, then you could make a pact that you both get to buy the shiny thing but no more until the next year?
