I think the Experian jump is because I got a credit card about 5 months ago and it's finally caught up to reflect me paying off in full every month. I think credit karma must see having a credit card as a bad thing whether you're paying it off or not.


PastorSalad

Didn’t even register it was Monday until I saw this thread. Day 8 of 12 at work. 10 hour shifts, except Sunday when I did 12 because money. Didn’t get paid at all last week thanks to an archaic timesheet system at this place. Actual paper timesheets. What. Of course one or two disappear each week and last week it was me. So bumper pay this week, some of which is already earmarked to reimburse a friend who put some food in my fridge bless her. Why is it so hard for me to ask for help is my question. I’ve literally gotta be moments away from disaster before I reach out. Gotta work on that, my friends and family love to help but I just feel like such a burden sometimes. Roll on payday.


david_25_r

Not sure if this is the place for it or if anyone can relate but I play football every Monday night and am bad to average but I like the runaround and to just have a good time. I have a good group I play with and this week we had a proper cunt come and join us who was obviously the best player, but spent the whole game openly criticising every bad pass and move I made. Ruined the experience tbh and I’m going to keep an eye out if he’s playing in future because honestly it wasn’t a fun experience. Half tempted to write to him to tell him he was an arsehole but I know I just need to cool off and blow it off, who cares. Any tips on how to deal with someone like this?


Confident_Resolution

Had one of these back in the day. Takes a kick about waaaay too seriously. Advice is to take the laugh up a couple of notches. Make it very obvious you're there to have fun - joke with the lads more, be the loudest one laughing at yourself, and make it obvious you dont give a shit about the score. Ignore every instance of his twattery. This bellend will look like a right cunt acting like he's Cristiano Ronaldo on a plastic 5aside pitch on a Monday night.


TomF94

Was going to suggest [This](https://cdn.resfu.com/media/img_news/nigel-de-jong-kick-on-xabi-alonso-in-the-2010-final-was-only-given-a-yellow-card--twitter.jpg), but this is probably better advice to be fair.


david_25_r

Thank you, this is great advice and also exactly the type of person I’m referring to. I’ll do exactly this 👍 the guys know me well so I think as long as I keep it light and keep having a laugh they will see what a wanker he is


AonghusMacKilkenny

I don't know if it's because we're shit at the sports or poor publicity by our media but I can't name anyone on the Team GB winter Olympic squad. And I'm a sports fan.


tmstms

Is 13 cats in a 2 bed house too many? Mrs tmstms had This Morning on and was thunderstruck to see someone we know on ,,,,,and her 13 cats.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpqfecHFca8


Teh_yak

I think the number if cats per m² of house does put her right in the centre of crazy cat lady territory.


PastorSalad

I have 2 in a 2 bed flat and that feels like too many sometimes.


stuckinacycleandsad

Started the day badly but it perked up around 2 pm, it usually does as it's not too long until we head off home in the van, This Friday is going to be good me and my partner get paid on the same day


FakeSchwarzenbach

Getting made redundant. Bit of an arse start to the week tbh


Confident_Resolution

Sorry to hear mate. Never a nice experience.


FakeSchwarzenbach

After much upset and rage throughout the day, it may be a blessing in disguise? I’m horribly underpaid, and seeing as this is the third round in 2 years in a small company, you wonder how long they’ll be around for


1b7_

For the first time in a little while, I simply feel very relaxed and cozy. It's really great! Also, went to see a studio today (am a student, so not too stressful); it looked pretty good! I'm not doing anything until I've slept on it and properly worked out the numbers, but I might just go for it. It is only the second one I've viewed though - it's also fairly pricey _and_ it would mean I'd have to walk 20 minutes each way to uni. At least it has an oven - the last one I went to, did not; it just had a 2-ring hob and a microwave!


Dark_place

McDonalds have officially called the end of the breakfast Bagels and wraps. Absolute bastards.


AnselaJonla

Went to the National Running Show on Saturday. Bought a... few things. And my entire body is letting me know just how unappreciated that idea is. [This selection](https://imgur.com/a/5uceaoM) is what most horrified my mum. She harps on and on that I need to wear colours other than black, yet when I _do_ buy something colourful it's all "I am _not_ being seen with you if you're wearing that." I just can't win.


Calciumee

There is far too many black running clothes! So all up for more colourful clothing. Recommend Happystride if you like a good pattern.


ReceiptIsInTheBag

I once saw someone running in an Um Bongo vest.


AnselaJonla

Yeah, I think that's from the same company as the Love Hearts vest.


X_Trisarahtops_X

I love your new vest.


AnselaJonla

Thank you. I thought I'd picked up a t-shirt tbh, but a vest works too. I can wear it solo in summer (and the people who get arsey about shaving can suck it) or over a base layer in winter. I think it'll go particularly well with the feathery skorts.


ahoneybadger3

Things are coming up Milhouse. All the lads have been talking about going out on the 4th Feb but my rota's are so all over the place due to staff shortages and airlines changing their flights so often that for the last couple weeks I've been a maybe. New rota got released an hour ago. And I finish at 6pm on the 4th, might even be able to push it to a 5pm finish depending on the day, depends if there's any delays on the Emirates and I can just make an hour up the next week when it's needed. Off on the 5th too which is crucial for the hangover. My current four days off has turned into 6 days off. So not back in work until the 30th. Out of the last 9 months I think its been, there's been 2 instances where I've had more than 1 day off at a time. Once in November and once last week when my holiday allowance for the year started to get allocated. 6 days off though, heaven. My shares have dropped another 6% today mind so it's not all rosy. The last couple weeks has just seen fall over fall. But the alternative is I don't have my future rent tied up in stocks and instead keep it in my bank. And if I did that I'd be sat here with a new expensive coffee machine.


partaylikearussian

Double dipping today. I popped in here super early to complain about it being Monday. Well, I've had a good day. I've gotten a lot done. This is a shocker to me, as I've done nothing for two weeks, and I think I've figured out my loss of motivation. As you've probably gathered if you see me surface in these daily threads, I am absolutely baked 16 hours a day, including throughout my high-flying role as a project manager, which includes, *right now*. Anyway, mostly, it helps me survive the awful year my wife and I had last year (lost a kid and others in the family - it's OK, we've had so much sympathy from everyone, and that's not what this is about, so don't feel inclined to say you're sorry on our behalf). I didn't really get any time to grieve, so I started doing the ol' drugs instead. Mostly, I've been pretty functional, but recently, I've not been able to do anything for weeks and I've gotten super behind on work. Both full-time *and* client work (and I haven't published much in a long time - I run three 'jobs'). Turns out, I can't handle the edibles while trying to function. I ran out now, so I'm back to vaping the stuff. As it turns out, the vape seems to keep me productive. I Just need to stop eating stuff. By the way, I got rejected from an interview today that I had last week. I sort of suspect that it's because I ate a brownie about an hour before it, forgetting I *had* an interview, and it kicked in halfway through. ahahahahaha. I'm not alright, to be honest.


TweetyDinosaur

You already know this, but you need some time off everything - work, drugs, all of it, to let yourself grieve. If you aren't already in counselling, hop to it, pronto. You're a wonderful person with an amazing life that isn't worth ducking up. Best wishes regardless.


WireWolf86

Third week in of my new job. Not really being shown much. Made a bit of a mess today and the client kicked off to the PM who has then decided to complain to my manager. Dreading tomorrow when i have my incident review.


partaylikearussian

"Incident review"? This is what I hate about corporate life ... just accept that a new human being made a mistake and move on. Sorry this happened to you. This has been the attitude at so many companies I've worked for. My most recent employer turned out to be surprisingly great. I made a GDPR error right at the start, and the director took it on her own back and pretended like I had nothing to do with it. That said, she's turned into a much less supportive person lately with certain other stuff. Hopefully, they're just following (some stupid) internal process and you'll just be given some training.


MajorBedhead

I thought I was early for a doctor's appointment this morning because I showed up at 8 instead of 8:20 AM. Turns out I was even earlier than I though. By three days.


TweetyDinosaur

I am so sorry for laughing.


MajorBedhead

It's fine. I was laughing at myself.


Flatulent_Weasel

Still alive and we have 3 DnD sessions penciled in for this week. Looking good so far.

Don't understand baguettes and why people enjoy them. Far to hard for a sandwich, only good use for them is garlic bread.


Multigrain_Migraine

Me neither. I don't like having the roof of my mouth shredded when all I want is lunch.


Amuro_Ray

First week of German class started today. First class was OK but I am very out of shape. Walking there and back (3 km there and another back with a 2 hour lesson in the middle left me tired)


EinArmGuY

Hallo mein Freund, wie geht es Dir?


Amuro_Ray

seas! Heute es geht nicht gut. Ich habe eine Artz termine und ich habe keine zoom link fuer meine kurs. I have a doctors appointment today during my german class so I wanted to do my german class from home but I didn't get the zoom link and it seems after a phonecall I'll get the link tomorrow...when I'll be able to be in the class.


ahoneybadger3

Wouldn't think it was January in this flat. 24 degrees at the moment. My chilli plants must be loving it though, 4 of them just sprouted up from the soil this morning after 2 weeks of being planted.


Multigrain_Migraine

Can I come over? I'm freezing. Just had to put on an extra jumper and a wool blanket over my legs.


ahoneybadger3

The beers are in the fridge ready.


RedditIsRealWack

Just dropped my milk frother in the sink and killed it. So sad.


ahoneybadger3

First of at least 4 days off today. Rota only goes up to Thursday so who knows if I'm rota'd in for Friday or not. Kind of hoping I've more holiday allowance allocated. Just left it up to management to pop me in for days when available as I've something like another 150 hours plus 3 days off in lieu to use up by April. Absolutely zero plans to do anything too and I love it. Not leaving the house today. Just lying around watching shite. Also have half of last nights pizza left so don't even have to bother cooking. \*Edit\* It's 6 days off. Get in.


letthemhavejush

Was on my way to a spin class when all of a sudden struck down with horrible nausea, had to turn back and come home before barfing happened. Turns out a lot of people have a problem with the pre-workout from a company and it causes nausea and vomiting. Safe to say, won’t be using that again. Making my way through the Marvel universe as I’ve not seen any of them (apart from the Ironman movies, first Guardians of the galaxy and the first Avengers) I’m enjoying them! Not my usual thing but I’m impressed! Currently on the second Captain America (I had to Google the order 😂)


revolut1onname

Winter Soldier is probably my favourite of them, enjoy!


Feisty-Site-6261

Love the Thor movies but I need to catch up on Marvel stuff, still haven't watched anything that came out in the last 2 years.


_sallyvate_

Got my booster later, I'm hoping it doesn't make me feel horrendous like a lot of people I know. Even if it doesn't, I might still tell work that it did so I can have a quiet day. Trying to track down a reference I can give for my previous company - they got bought out just as I left so everything is different there now. I've got a generic HR email address so hopefully that's enough, especially combined with a real person reference for my current place.


Shipwrecking_siren

Day 2 of covid isolation for my daughter and me. Both under the weather. She was super unwell after Christmas and just had a nasty case of constipation and other hospital appointments, and now this, so I’m starting to feel like I’ve always been the caretaker of the Overlook Hotel. In better news we ordered really good curry and I made delicious chocolate fairy cakes yesterday, so that has boosted morale.

Busy morning at work so far as we're up to our eyeballs in campaign launches over the next few weeks and my manager is on leave for two days, so I'm holding the fort. Taking a quick break for some lunch (cheesy spaghetti on toast) and a walk to buy milk, then will get back to it. Tonight will be pasta bake for dinner, then Quizzy Monday. Going to try and do a bit of reading as well - I fell off the wagon with regular reading last week due to family visiting so will see if I can carve out an hour later. Also need to book my laser treatment (as mentioned on yesterday's thread) as the patch test seems to have gone fine so just trying to work out a suitable date to start. Hope you all have a good day :)


Shipwrecking_siren

Ooh the final of Only Connect tonight, I got completely lost with all the specials. If I’m still awake I look forward to getting none of questions right. I wonder if we could get a Casual U.K. Reddit team together, I’m excellent at missing vowels and average at the wall. Not sure I’m selling myself at all.


folklovermore_

If you do get a team together I'd definitely be interested in taking part! I'm pretty good on missing vowels and OK on the wall and sequences. Though I also fully expect to struggle tonight...


Shipwrecking_siren

I feel a plan is a-foot. I’d expect to go out first round but absolutely wouldn’t care. If they tried to make me sing I outright refuse and have to cover my ears and close my eyes every time.


folklovermore_

Honestly I'd be thrilled just to make it onto the show. And I fully volunteer as the singer for Team CasualUK (even though I'm not very good at it...)


E_V_E_R_T_O_N

At the pub last night, it quickly became clear that my friend (21 years old) did know have any idea who Paul McCartney was. How do I process this information?


ReceiptIsInTheBag

Let it be


WufflyTime

By compiling a list of the best of McCartney's work, or alternatively, compiling a list of his most spectacularly awful work, and share them with your friend.


ollymillmill

Went to check out Feeder tickets (the band obviously) and its £89 for one ticket down my guildhall. I get they’re not a niche indie band anymore but £90?! Havn’t been to a gig for ages but that seems a lot. Aren’t acts like Ed Sheeran and other huge popular mainstream acts not even that expensive? Edit: ahem…not too sure what i was looking at but they’re £31.50 😅😅


ReceiptIsInTheBag

Probably how he affords a Jaguar with a CD player (player ^player ^^player^^)


Multigrain_Migraine

Yikes, I was going to say that seemed quite steep! Even the Cure's upcoming shows weren't that expensive.


revolut1onname

I was fuming at the weekend about Parkway Drive being £50 now, I first saw them in a fucking basement for £10!


bickering_fool

£90 to book out the hall, no doubt.


folklovermore_

Blimey Charlie. As others have said that's a lot for one ticket. You're not looking at super-premium seats with special add-ons or anything like that are you? But yeah, gigs are getting ridiculously expensive. I'm a tightwad who will happily sit in the cheap seats but a lot of times now even the 'cheap' seats are £50+ with all the fees etc. I appreciate most artists make their money touring these days and Covid etc has made things a lot shakier in that regard, but unless you're going to tiny venues increasingly people are being priced out of live music.


X_Trisarahtops_X

Jesus. I would expect to pay that for 2 tickets for a band. Tickets have increased in cost. Even before the pandemic hit, they were at all time high prices, but i've especially noticed it post-pandemic. £90 (plus the fees) is excessive for one ticket for one band.


ollymillmill

Not sure what i was looking at as i went via the actual guildhalls website and its £31.50


X_Trisarahtops_X

Massive difference! That seems more reasonable!


[deleted]

That is utterly ridiculous


TrojanGoldfish

Things I have learned today: Feeder are still going (yay) and gigs are fucking expensive (boo!). Last time I saw them, it was at Leeds Cockpit and the tickets were £6iirc.


ollymillmill

I never really do anything extra curricular cuz i don’t have much spare money after the standard nights out but thought id check the gig out. £40 i could maybe stretch to but £90?!


dawson2000c

Woke up feeling like the ex will never come back. Floored me. Utterly floored me. Not moved from the bed. Stupid to say but she was really the only happiness in my life. Without her seems so grey pointless and lonely. The tiny hope of her coming back keeps me going.


partaylikearussian

Sorry to hear that. Did things end amicably or at least in a salvageable way?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Acheron20q

Similar situation here (so you arent alone feeling like this!). Find myself lifting up the phone in the morning with some sort of weird hope that they would have messaged me to see could we work things out. Then of course you have the urge to want to reach out, just want to talk to them again. We must be strong, it hasnt worked out for a reason, and they havent messaged us for a reason. Feel free to give me a shout if you want, can try and keep eachother strong through this


Shipwrecking_siren

That sounds really tough, sorry about that. Worth reaching out to local NHS/charity therapy services, there’ll likely be a wait but if you don’t need it when it comes around then you can say you’re OK and you’ve not lost anything. I hope you can find some peace with it, and if it’s not her then the right person will come along.


TweetyDinosaur

Morning all! First day back after a few days off, and frankly just want to crawl back into bed. I am very behind with some fairly urgent stuff, plus trying to keep on top of the daily stuff because otherwise that gets very problematic, and my brain is all "nope. Don't want to play". Meh. So that's my Monday - hopefully you are all doing much better.


Chuckserious

Back at work after a week off with gastric flu. Only been in the job two months as well so expecting some stern looks


Greymatterbutnothere

I have the day off work and I am getting over being ill, got my little boy ready for school and dropped off. Sat and watched the rest of safe place on Netflix. I am about to do something tiding.


Own_Air_5945

Hosted a birthday party at mine over the weekend so spent the entirety of Saturday getting the place tidy. Naturally it's trashed now so time for another 'big clean'. I never want to see another cupcake in my life.

i had a day like that a couple of weeks ago. i just had to take the afternoon off and go for a nap, i was completely useless! hope you feel better.


TweetyDinosaur

I felt like that last week. Any chance you can call in sick?


SpecialUnitt

Man, already looking toward the weekend. I only work 4 days weeks but 3 days still feels quick.


revolut1onname

Having to explain to Microsoft that it's their servers that are causing delays is the most frustrating thing I've had to deal with in some time. They keep giving me bullshit tasks to attempt to resolve it, I point out that they won't work but do them anyway as box ticking, yet after every one I then have to wait up to 24 hours for a phone call. It's just so fucking stupid. Weekend was fine, had a bad day at work on Friday so decided to pop to the pub for a couple on Friday night, which was nice. Saturday was mostly relaxed, invited our new neighbours to the pub on Saturday as we've still barely got to know them at all, that was lovely fun. Watched the football and did some shopping yesterday. All in all, not bad. This week involves a couple of meals out, and a weekend away from my wife seeing friends. Hopefully should be great!


Somau5

Discovered just how unfit I am after a gentle 5 mile walk yesterday, and this morning to my horror the scales read a number I've never seen before. So I've decided I've had enough. The only way I can reliably keep myself on track is to calorie count, even though I hate it, but that's what I'll be doing from now on. I have many many kgs to lose but I'm hoping to lose around 10kg by our holiday in March. I reckon it's doable. Slightly annoying as I would normally swim for exercise but the local pool had its roof ripped off in a storm recently so I'll have to come up with something else until it's fixed. Ringfit? Daily walks? I do have a bike but it's icy at the moment.


TweetyDinosaur

r/losit is a wonderful and supportive subreddit.


Somau5

Cheers, have subscribed!


Shipwrecking_siren

It’s great! I was exactly where you were in august, with the scales and the “enough” and have lost 17kg since then and gone from obese BMI to healthy BMI. The food tracking apps like Lose it or Myfitnesspal are extremely helpful for the reality check of how much you eat and where you are going “wrong” (for me wildly underestimating the calories in butter and what constitutes a portion of carbohydrates!). I can still have treats and you can set how slowly or quickly you want to lose weight too, and if you have a fitness tracker it works with that to give you extra calories from your exercise which you can bank or eat if you want a treat (always the latter for me!)


Somau5

17kg is fab, that's amazing! You must be so pleased to see your hard work paying off. Myfitnesspal has always been really helpful for me for the same reasons, underestimating portion sizes and putting my snacking in black and white. My main issue is snacking and myfitnesspal stops me doing it because I don't want to record the calories!! But you're right, it's not all or nothing, I can still have treats I just need to learn some moderation which I am sorely lacking in.


Shipwrecking_siren

I’m definitely in a motivation slump, I really need my exercise to counteract my greed, but I’ve had awful lethargy since Christmas and now have covid, so I’m not doing amazingly at logging or keeping a deficit.


nobody-likes-you

missing an e btw /r/loseit


TweetyDinosaur

Thank you!


Greymatterbutnothere

I’ve lost two stone my doing a smaller calorie deficit. The weights coming off slowly but the main thing is it’s staying off. Just inbox me if you need to chat/rant x


Somau5

That's great, congrats! It's such a good feeling knowing you've worked hard and are managing to keep it off. I know I can do it because I've done it in the past, I tend to cut to 1200 for 4 weeks and then aim for 1500 afterwards and it usually works, it just takes a long time. My main issue is that I struggle to stay motivated for more than 5-6 months - I find it really upsetting knowing I'll probably have to count calories for the rest of my life, so then I feel demotivated before I even start. Combine that with my emotional eating habits and it's a recipe for disaster!


flyingman6046

Does a nearby gym have a pool? Also has the benefit of stable weather while inside a gym if you end up doing a land based wormout there as well.


Somau5

Unfortunately I live very rurally so facilities are limited. I never find much I can actually do in the gym but I do enjoy weights so maybe I could try doing that until the pool reopens and then a combination of the two? There is another pool 20 mins away but they don't offer any adult lane times which I find a bit ridiculous in this day and age! They have 'open swimming' but there are no lanes and in my experience it's mainly kids so you can't really swim properly.


zeddoh

Checked my work calendar this morning and I don’t have a meeting in the diary until Thursday, bliss!


TweetyDinosaur

I am deeply jealous.


McCretin

Second week of my new job. And the last full week of Dry January, thank heavens. I don't really feel any better for it but it feels like something of an achievement to make it all the way through. Maybe I do have self-control after all. I'm spending money like I've got my new salary already but I only started the new job halfway through the month so it's not going to be a full paycheque...At least I'm saving money on booze, I guess. That can be quite an outgoing in London.


flyingman6046

Best bit about a new job is getting that forst paycheck. Especially when its for 6 weeks of work instead of the usual 4


Gingeeer28

My Nan is in hospital again, so trying to ring around and find out what’s happening with her. I’ve been for my hospital appointment this morning, always good when a consultant says they are ‘concerned’. Tbh, he was absolutely lovely - and I’m just hopeful we’ll get to the bottom of what’s going on with me/that I’ll stop feeling like shit at some point in the future. So I now have a manic rest of the day with a dentists appointment, getting both dogs walked, having the gardener in at some point, attempting to get my shit together and then I have a 5-10 shift tonight. Very glad I’ve got a day off tomorrow and I have not foolishly offered to do overtime. I feel like I need a day to just sit and stare blankly at the ceiling atm.


Shipwrecking_siren

Sorry to hear about your nan and your own issues. Have a proper lazy day tomorrow, sounds like you need it.


Gingeeer28

Thank you! I really do, I have absolutely nothing other than walking the dogs, and eating chocolate planned for tomorrow!


Shipwrecking_siren

That sounds heavenly!


Hydrangeamacrophylla

Started feeling unwell last night - bit of a fever, achey, very tired, so off work today. Negative LFT last night but will do one today just in case. Got to deliver a full day of training Wednesday so I'm hoping to shake it by then. Tea and naps in the meantime though!


_MildlyMisanthropic

casual reminder that if you have symptoms you're meant to fuck off the LFT and go straight to a PCR site. I know most people don't, but the official guidance is unchanged.

BFF coming over later with the new series of Fraggle Rock. This is going to be my best day since 2001.


Multigrain_Migraine

Finally got around to watching the very last episode of *Blake's 7* last night after putting it off for ages. I was very confused by the ending and kept dreaming about it, then waking up, so I slept very badly. But I managed to do my morning workout for the first time since New Year's so hopefully I can get that going again. I hate doing it and I never feel better afterward so I find it hard to make myself do it.


TweetyDinosaur

Blake's 7 is my very favourite sci-fi show, and the ending is epic, in a wtf kind of way.


Multigrain_Migraine

I really didn't understand why it happened like that, other than everyone involved was tired of it and didn't want to leave the possibility of a crappy sequel.


KungFuPup

Weekend was a mix of my neighbours being utter twats and us being so excited because eldest can now ride her bike. We've been practicing lots with eldest on her bike and she's finally had the courage to just go for it. She's got the hang of it now. This week I'm drying my blanket I finally finished, hopefully delivering it, working and trying to sell some crap in the house so I can make a bit of money to move.


PeskyEskimo

Weekend was good, visited friends, ate a roast dinner, moved some furniture around in the house, barely slept last night though so struggling a bit today.

Does anyone else do a thing when they have somewhere to be, where they absolutely cannot do _anything_ other than basically wait until it's time to leave? Like I need to set off somewhere at 11 today - so I've spent the last hour idly wasting time. Proper annoys me but I just can't focus on anything else!


[deleted]

I'm the same way. Appointments are the biggest struggle and I'm always anxious that I'll lose track of time and be late, which is the Worst Thing In The World.

Yep, that's exactly it for me too - it's so frustrating!

I’m off for a scan today that will tell me if the pain in my chest is a life-changing condition or just a minor ouchie. Feels like I’m on the brink of two very different paths in life and I’m pretty nervous. Whatever the result is I’m treating myself to some Jaffa cakes afterwards. 🤞 edit: JUST A MINOR OUCHIE! EVERYONE ROUND MINE FOR SOME JAFFA CAAAAAAKES!!!! 🎉🎉🎉

I've got to go to our Manchester office tomorrow, which i'm proper reluctant to do, but nobody else wanted to do it so someone I drew the short straw! And to top it of, my manager's manager tried to get me into our local office today. I made some choice remarks to my manager which set them into a laughing fit during our team meeting. Definitely brightened my morning!


Greymatterbutnothere

There are some nice places to eat in Manchester treat yourself on your lunch xx

january is too damned long a month.


TweetyDinosaur

It's approximately double the length of any other month.

Went to IKEA on Saturday so we could get some storage boxes for the changing table we’re being gifted and then went to Mama’s and Papa’s and got our pram. Super annoying that they didn’t have the colour we wanted and the others were more expensive as they weren’t in the sale. Then Sunday was tidying the house and making it a bit more prepared for when the little one arrives


Srg11

Also been taking advantage of the mama's and papa's sale this month, despite not being due for ages. Seems silly not to.


futurehead22

What the fuck is up with credit scores? According to credit karma it went down 8 points but on Experian it went up 46points. I feel this basically shows they just make it up as they go.


g00gleb00gle

Checked what changed ? Missed a payment. Taken out credit ? It’s a history more than anything. Long as nothing is missed and your not using to much credit it’s ok


blahblahscience1

Ignore the score for the most part, so long as the history is all good then it is what it is.


nobody-likes-you

They make it up to try and get you to take out credit via their site so they get the commission. How do you think they pay for the expensive tele adverts if you don't have to pay to log in?

> I feel this basically shows they just make it up as they go. they do.

They're mostly bull shit.


GaZzErZz

I made a lasagne on Thursday, it's still in the fridge now. I suppose that's probably for the bin now.


bickering_fool

If the meat is cooked...you're good to go.


GaZzErZz

Aha then we are on to a winner because there is no meat


pharlax

5 days? You'll be fine. Assuming it doesn't smell weird ofc.


GaZzErZz

BRB just going to go sniff my lasagne


Petrunka

Went for a walk yesterday, ended up doing 11.5km in unsuitable shoes and feeling it today in the old thighs. Still, nice to get out, and due to the urgent need for a pit-stop stumbled across an excellent looking pub that we now are trying to find an excuse to revisit. Last week of being stuck at home, hopefully back to the office next week where there's already talk of a team lunch and I am super looking forward to that. Should be working but I'm home alone and I really want to polish off Breath of the Wild before the new Pokemon games comes out on Friday...


bickering_fool

Impressed with your 11.5k walk. Nice going.


Petrunka

It wasn't what we set out do, but we got to the halfway point and decided to chose the longer route home over the short one. It felt good, but the pub stop was definitely vital.


_MildlyMisanthropic

after starting running for the first time in my life last year, I moved from my morning jog to do my first park run on Saturday and came in 1st in my age category (35-39) which probably means I was the only one in my age group. Still happy though. Then we walked up a mountain. so yesterday my legs were a bit tired. this morning off the back of my good success in park run, I added a bit more to my usual 3.75km morning jog and ended up doing 7.75km without feeling like I was going to die, so I guess I might be getting used to this running lark.

_MildlyMisanthropic

Funnily enough I too started at the back because I was worried about my pace, and then spent a lot of time waiting for appropriate opportunity to pass those going slower than me. I reckon next time I might squeak out a better time.


[deleted]

Ahh, Monday. Next door's toddler is currently having an absolute meltdown and I can completely relate to everything she's saying. I don't want to do anything either.


VicDazzled

Dreamt that I was out on a proper sesh last night, nightclubs and everything, then woke up with that hungover fuzzy head feeling, that’s so not fair that dream me gets to have fun and real me pays for it! Luckily I’m off work for a few days so can spend the rest of the day slobbing in front of the telly!


Farquar-lazs

Already been called a twat by an 84 year old Patient before 9am. Excellent


bickering_fool

Considered turning off the IV?


NunWithABun

Woke up in a panic that I was late for a Zoom appointment at 9, but it turns out it was actually 11, so I gave myself a heart attack for nothing.


worldworn

Trying to be a bit more organised this year, especially with the push to get back into the office. I (reluctantly ) only go in when I have meetings that can't be done online. I've been really good so far, everything organised in advance, scheduled things that suit me Only for muppets to cancel right before hand, meaning several more trips .


Tramorak

No work until Saturday. Off for a walk shortly then not really sure. Champagne Monday today so there is that to look forward to.


paroxysm17

Job application in, and feeling a bit better about this one. Got a while to wait for any results. Currently acting as line manager for the team while our actual one has been out for two weeks. The previous deputy was shocking so I'm desperately clearing up all their mistakes this morning


nobody-likes-you

I've got a major case of the CBAs.

Cataracts? Glad it sounds like it’s gone well, anyway.

Argh that sounds awful, I hope the procedure helped, then.


EFOF

Milk it, when I had eye surgery went back to work after two weeks off wearing shades and then said I needed to go home as wasn’t used to being in a well lit room looking at screens for so long and it was straining my eyes - got another week off!


ReceiptIsInTheBag

I don't think the words "casual" and "eye surgery" belong together. Hope it goes well.

No thanks! I hate just going to the opticians, never mind anything more


buy_me_a_pint

Waiting to hear back from the hospital for the next step to deal with my frozen shoulder, had x-rays, he wants to confirm it before getting me an injection as I had my frozen shoulder and causing me a lot of other issues, the specialist I saw also had a frozen shoulder he is on month nine I do suffer from health anxiety, too much googling, but I do see the doctor


ukbabz

Feeling pretty tired today after a good weekend, hopefully avoided picking up any bugs but just want to go back to bed. Saturday morning was a bit of one on one time with my daughter. It was chilly but dry so we went to the park and then went shopping - she spent most of the time leaning back in the trolly laughing her head off. Yesterday was my first **proper** ride on my bike with the local club, 100km at just over 30km/h (62miles/19mph) and a PB on one of the big local climbs. Legs had quite a bit of strength still but fitness down a little. Shoulder held up well and started aching towards the end of the ride. I finished off Sunday by cooking a roast for the family & inlaws and got it all spot on (pork with roast potatoes, roast parsnips, yorkshire puds and mixed veg).


Lysabetalle

Despite somewhat enjoying my job, I've gone into a 'don't care' mode and especially with working from home. I work for 7.5 hours a day, but realistically I most only do around 4-5 hours of actual work, then the rest is procrastinating or playing games. It's not good I know, and I probably should start looking for new work to prevent getting complacent, but after being so burnt out over the past year I've figured out that I don't really care and will take advantage of WFH :/


Liquor_D_Spliff

Meh play the game I say. It's just work, a necessary evil. If you can do your job in near half the time and buy some of your life back then what's the issue?


leskenobian

The first week where I'm really on my Todd again, romantically. All thrown me for a loop a little. Back at uni, hopefully I'll survive somehow.


StardustOasis

Will it be another week of doing two jobs for the same pay or not? Let's find out.


Uncle_Leo93

After being at work all day yesterday and having zero sleep last night, I've found myself in hospital from about 5am. It's my only day off and I'm in the fucking hospital. I'm fine if I remain stationary but any form of movement makes my chest feel like it's in a car compactor. I had to have both paramedics heave me off the bed because transitioning from laid down to stood up reduced me into a screaming wreck. Did I mention it's my only day off? Fucking Monday.


__Thomasin

You really really don’t sound like someone who should be at work tomorrow!


Uncle_Leo93

Considering they've just pumped me full of morphine to shove a plastic tube into my lung I'm going to agree. Also they're getting me more morphine. Morphines great.


sideone

Sounds like you need to self certify for the next five days to recover.


nobody-likes-you

You can self certify for up to 28 days atm, go wild.


Uncle_Leo93

If I wasn't the only chef in the building then I would. Or I could throw myself in front of a car to remove any choice from the equation.


sideone

Sounds like management's problem, not yours


kawasutra

Oh mate! Sorry to hear this! Hope they can sort you out soon!


Uncle_Leo93

You have no idea how much I agree. After a straight ~~27~~ hours awake, a couple of joints last night and a couple of cocodamol about 4 minutes ago I really should get myself home sooner rather than later. Just waiting on results from the chest x-ray. Edit: Pneumothorax, morphine and a tube in my lung. I love my day off. Edit II: It's 37 hours now. I usually need amphetamines to stay awake this long.


FigureItOut50

The weekend is always too short and I don’t do anything with the time that I do have.


FigureItOut50

Wow it has almost been 2 years since I started my current job. A lot has changed since then.


ASK_IF_IM_PENGUIN

I need a playlist for the week. I've started with Frank Turner - [Get Better.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB4Avdlz3lk) Any others?


MajorBedhead

Haven't Been Doing So Well by Frank Turner is great, too. I'm also a fan of The Lottery Winners Start Again.


ASK_IF_IM_PENGUIN

It is. Most of his stuff is fairly decent. Not all of its for me, but it all serves a purpose. The only one which rubs me slightly the wrong way is Wessex Boy, and that is largely because of the video, where I find myself fuming... "THAT'S NOT WINCHESTER"

I usually pair that with I Wanna Get Better by the Bleachers to make sure it really sinks in

About to take a dump then trial my new walking boots with a decent length dog walk. They were on offer on Amazon for £15 from £50, and went back to £50 the day after buying. My old ones have been absolutely battered so iv been due a new pair, price is a bonus.


Shrinkingpotato

First day of readjusting sleep routine. My alarm has a "gentle waves" sound, but at 7am it feels more like the sea is crashing through the walls. Oh well. Can have a crumpet in an hour (got to wait cos antibiotics).
