Shocked and disgusted

I had my day completely ruined yesterday  along with the rest of Newcastle's football fans.

As a friend of mine said yesterday in an email rant (and I think this sums the matter up nicely - on the one hand for Chris, and on the other for fans of Newcastle United):  "throughout society, working people have to put up with complete shitheads as their management, who know nothing about the job they're trying to do, and who bugger them about with impunity .... and then they have to suffer it in one of their favourite escapes from work as well."


Goodbye and good luck, Chris - we're going to miss you!

The show must go on...

...even if it's a little later than planned!  Linda and I have postponed our Open Studio event because of the crazy amounts of snow around Linda's place.  So we'll both be there next weekend instead (11th/12th Dec), although Linda assures me she wont turn away any visitors that do happen to make it to hers this weekend.  There'll still be beautiful paintings and a warm welcome!


And in other news:

From next week, I'm working a 3-day week.  So, when I leave work on a Friday evening now, instead of looking forward to the weekend break, I'll be looking forward to 4 long days before I return to my desk...  Lovely.
