Silly season

In the spirit of keeping this thing ticking over until I launch the full website for real:

I've had one of the best weekends in a long time. I sat in the sunshine on my decking and did a whole lot of nothing. Well I cut the grass and went to the supermarket, but that was it.

On the down side it made me see that I really need to finish off the decking, and rip the garden out and re-do it ;(

Oh well :) 3 weeks to go until my holiday. The down side of that is that I'm getting those "I wish I was on holiday now" blues and I'm fighting very hard to keep motivated at work. If you loose motivation here a 7 hour stint in the office seems to stretch to about 24. I'd be tempted tap into Iain's "things to do in the office when you are board" list, but within a 8 meter radius of my desk sits the my team leader and the IT director :) or should that be a ;(

What a mistake.

Well this Sunday we (my wife and I) couldn't think of anything to do and were being driven crazy by out 18 month old little angel (ahem), no really she's a darling :)

Eventually we went to kill time by looking at new cars with no intentions of buying. Well, now I want a new car. I know they are a bit of a bus but we looked at a Renault Espace and it had more buttons to press than my computer, even little buttons and readouts for the rear seats. One problem: I don't have £28,750 :(

Oh well, perhaps next time we'll just play cards.

Well it's new but if you are 30 or older it will bring a tear to your eye.

Thanks to Iain for finding this one: Hey Hey 16K
