Today while working from home I have

a) tidied up some clothes
b) gone to office to do a mileage claim form
c) sat in garden reading book
d) inputted about 20 bars of music to Sibelius
e) gone for a 20 mile bike ride in the sunshine

I could get used to this!

You're all about the 5 point lists aren't you!

yeah I guess so, maybe it is easier than writing paragraphs. I might set myself a challenge to do everything in lists, rather than have conversations or write emails etc

I worked from home today. I got up at about 11.30am, had about 5 cups of tea and half a packet of biscuits, then inputted some grade pieces to sibelius (that was the work component of the day), then I went for a run, had my tea and went to band practice. I am working from home tomorrow too.

169  General / The Forum / Re: Interesting jobs on: July 24, 2013, 01:56:35

One word of warning, be a little cautious in making a real love of something your day job, if you have a passion for music or art or writing or a sport, and you turn it into the thing that you HAVE to do to earn money it can kill the joy for it a bit (personal experience), so maybe leave it as a well-loved hobby that you may earn a bit of cash from as a bonus, or maybe find something that includes it a bit or works near it, but doesn't comprise it entirely (if that makes sense).

Do you want me to draft a reply on easyjet's behalf?

i would like this  Cheesy

hmm.. poacher turned gamekeeper

Dear Mr Evs,

I am so very genuinely sorry to hear of your relatively recent disappointment with the admittedly poor quality food & drink provided for some of the especially gullible passengers on our shambolic low budget trans alpine jamboree air flight back into UK from random european destinations. Do you think we are mugs? Because we certainly feel that way about you and your British ilk. for your own well-being I should like to advise you never to purchase food or drink at the following locations:

i) airports/on planes (e.g. Easyjet)
ii) motorway service stations (except the ones in Italy and sometimes France)
iii) supermarkets before 7.59pm
iv) late night take aways or curry houses that permit entry after 10.45pm

Were I feeling especially charitable I might also advise you to purchase one of our lottery/bingo cards on the flight. You have more chance of winning 250,000 than getting a decent sandwich and coffee, to be perfectly honest.

Should you wish to enjoy a relaxing low budget european-style break in the next few years, I would highly recommend you continue to fly Easyjet to a myriad of destinations which are all basically the same i.e. there is a beach and some fat women from south wales, bringing your own sandwiches and thermos if you're going to be fussy.


I would like to give you my very best regards. Unfortunately I am not able to do that in this instance. But have a good holiday next year, and be sure to let me know how it goes.

Yours in sun sea and sand.

Mr E. Jett. (no relation to that I love rock n roll woman)

running - is free and good for you. also good way to kill time if you are unemployed

I can't stand running for the sake of it, sport all the way.

When I was unemployed in Bris after returning from Aus I used to go on big cycle rides to pass the time...

Could always enter a race and train for that.

is cheaper than buying a bike tho
