    Ruddy 'eck !

    So I managed to cadge a lift over to mum's so I can finish up a couple of projects. Her mate picked me up (shielding, as am I). Got over. She said "I can take you home next Weds". I thought "yasss, no £15 each way for cabs !" so readily agreed.

    Got here and fired up the PC. Looked at the date. 16th December. WTF? next Weds is the 23rd, when I was coming back over. WTF happened? I thought it was like, the 6th today ffs.

    Panic started to set in, as I need to be here from the 24th on any way (going to aunt's and they like to pick me up from here). Went on Iceland... Good old Iceland ! got an order in for Friday.

    That means I can now chill the F out for a week finishing the Chungus and my other PC, then enjoy Xmas without that oh so stressful journey.

    I am also on my last day before the Christmas break. Unlike most years, I do not have 16 hours of work to get complete today so I'll be leaving the office when I want :)

    One of only a few people left at work, its extremely peaceful, I can get a load of stuff done without someone bugging me. I can listen to music without worrying my headphones will bug someone and best of all I can fart without fear of judgment.... with everything going on in the world it can feel pretty suffocating at work sometimes with people badgering on about the same things I'll go home and get from the news.

    I've also ordered pretty much all I need to build myself a computer, just on the lookout for a GPU and get Windows sorted and I'll be good to go.

    Got everything we need for Christmas nom a noms.

    Going turkey instead of ham this year, got tonnes of pigs in blankets and of course the Finnish boxes (no Dave, no! Too easy!) will be topping it off.

    Oh and sprouts of course.

    And yes it'll all happen on 24th as per usual. Don't think that was banned after leaving the EU.

    I was working with a man this fall who like to say, "I use to cough to cover my farts. Now I fart to cover my coughs."

    I'm having a hard time quantifying that taste combo. Hope is was refreshing.

    Are those stay puft ones sweet, or is it and undernote?
