    When I worked, I never worked over Christmas but I was always happy to go in between Christmas and New Year - the most dismal few days of the year.

    (y) as team leader i generally put myself down for xmas cover - has the double benefit of avoiding most of the festive b*****ks and making the team think i'm such a great boss for selflessly taking on the cover so they don't have to.

    WCMUT : noticiong that in tesco all the restocking cages were labled as isles 1-15 , but some slighly more literate person had added an A to each label in sharpy marker

    I'm on a massive diet so what cheered me up today is a massive irony, that I ordered £250 of bloody nice chocolates and I'll likely get to eat about £5 of them :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: but I will get to given a lot of them away as gifts to some people that have done a lot to help me over the last 18 months or so

    Again going to prove expensive but I've just booked my car into the village garage to have it fully serviced, any work that needs doing done and then a shiny new MOT done for it, that should then see me finally back on the road

    So, what cheered me up today?

    I learned years ago to take pleasure in the small stuff and to find at least one thing each day to be cheerful about.

    Today I successfully scanned an old photo of my nephew and converted it to B+W for my sister's B+W photo wall.

    I'll get it to her in time for her birthday on Thursday.

    A Range Rover will do. (y)

    Not strictly Warwickshire though, unless I'm mistaken.

    Yeah, it was down to the boundary changes when the West Midlands was created.

    My Mother never accepted it. "We're not Brummie yow yows," she used to say.

    The irony of a post pointing out a misspelling containing a misspelling itself - they're Sharpie markers not sharpy. (And the spell checker picks up sharpy...)

    There is no spell checker on the forum...it's on your browser or device so maybe Pete didn't have a spell checker also it doesn't show as a misspelling on my iPad so I'd have never picked that up

    and the double irony is pointing out a spelling mistake in a brand name and missing 3 in very often used words :(:thinking:

    not strictly speaking today but this week I sold l the bike in my avatar, not ridden it for 5 years so I thought it better go to someone who is going to use it. I will soon have a big wad of cash to spend on glass and a new body.

    Beautiful gin-clear day, sun shining even if it was fairly cold, and getting out on the bike for 20 miles at lunchtime without feeling as sick as a Northallerton Donkey when I started to climb a hill larger than a Railway Bridge. Little things, yeah, but as I've been on Dr's Orders to take it easy after a rather nasty Chest Infection for the last month, frankly it was just wonderful to be out there.

    my keyboard is knackered - however theres a difference between a typo or 6 causually poosting on a fourim , and making the isles/aisles confusion whilst preparing printed signs for a large supermarket chain

    Keyboard knackered or not it really is no excuse for being hypocritical and not even attempting to correct your own mistakes
    when pointing out someone elses.
    Strange how the recent posts you have made show no mistakes apart from in this one :thinking:

    Isle bet there are many more than 15 tbh, but maybe the initial label was for a delivery driver & his route covers 15 aisles?
