    My wife had her first one on Thursday and felt a bit off on Friday, nothing too bad, just general post-vaccination grots and a sore arm (they got the extra long needle for her as her arms are a bit on the large side).

    I was hoping to get a message from my GP to go book mine as I am in the same group as her what with being diabetic and all that. However, my GP is..... shall we say, not too efficient... so I wasn't holding my breath. Got a letter through today putting me in the clinically extremely vulnerable group (not sure why, I was in the vulnerable group die to diabetes, but hey). Got mine now booked for Wednesday.

    Playing using my "inexperienced" alt account on a game I'm very, very good at. Scaring the bejeezus out of actual high ranking players, then leaving just as the round finishes so I don't damage their precious scores.

    Much more fun than it should be lol.

    I've been pulling cables through the loft all day and I'm mainly made of fibreglass by this point, but the house is now blanketed with wifi. Finally.

    I totally forgot to mention, I now work for BMW Mini group, specifically Rolls-Royce. My 2nd week starts tomorrow. Really enjoying it so far, and much better than working in retail. It's a long commute for me, but the earnings will soon overtake my previous earnings, and I'll be taking full advantage of that to learn to drive again.

    Still, I have much to learn still, so it's one step at a time.

    Got a job interview lined up for Feb 24 at 2 PM PST time. Let's hope I get this job so I can be able to afford to keep my delivery business running.

    Sam, are you based at Goodwood? The semi underground factory is meant to be quite something.

    Sounds like Chi to me (AKA Chichester). I see the buses for the staff every day.

    We'll do the FOS when this **** is over, Tree. It's only up the road from me.

    Did you guys go for fabric or leather? I'd have preferred fabric but I'm impatient and my better half (who works from home) is having a bad time with her back on the £150 basic office chair I've provided her.

    I went for pu leather and it's held nice, of you've not ordered it yet I can give you a referral which will knock some cash off the price. Need to check my email tho as to how much.

    Both I and my mother are now jabbed. Mother was done a few weeks ago with a Pfizer and I had the Astra yesterday due to being her 'informal carer'. Happy days :).

    Thanks for the offer man but it's bought and paid for. Did manage to wrangle a 10% discount mind, so all is not lost.

    If you want to be really specific, it's Westhampnett, but it's Goodwood really. It's a pretty amazing sight walking around the site.
    And yes, at the time it was built, it was the largest 'living' roof in the UK, may still be actually.
