I just noticed that I'm now a salmon! Crikey! That's cheered me up no end.

I used to have a bigger sig but Robert kept moaning about it so I have been reduced to this now. Sad

no  Cry I'll probably know by the end of tomorrow though, and certainly by the end of the week.

Probably doesn't apply in this case but I think tomorrow is the last date to give 12 weeks notice for departure at the end of August. About half of the guys (if not all) in our place will prolly get their papers tomorrow because of that fact. Shocked)

Not smiling at his death, but at the notion of secret kung-fu assassins

I know in reality they are murderers just like the Somali pirates aren't Jack Sparrow, but some phrases are just joyful.

Finding out this afternoon that my job is safe - for the time being - unlike those of 9 of my less fortunate colleagues. Work is going to be a bit grim for the next few weeks, but at least I still have a job.

Good to know Catherine.  Feel for the others tho.

K made me smile - we have one of my developments quite close to our house and usually when we drive past K says that's your work but this morning she said "they had better put a roof on that or the wolf will get in"  Grin

I'm relieved for you Catherine.

I'm been made redundant twice myself, and it is not a nice feeling.  I feel for everyone that goes through it.

From the mouths of babes, eh?

A few things made me smile to counteract the "Things that made me Blue" -

1. A presentation I gave to a client in San Fransisco this afternoon (via the internet I hasten to add - I did fly to San Fran for the day) seemed to go very well and I got the impression he was pretty impressed with the work I'd managed to crack out in 4 days.

2. Apparently someone wants to have a look at my house this coming weekend.

3. I realised that in 2.5 days I'll be in Sweden for just under a week, spending some quality time with Moni. And for that I am truly grateful. And happy.

Today is a good day.
I have accepted a sensible offer on my house and the vendor of the house I want in Wiltshire has finally accepted my offer. We are good to go!

Mitch Benn of "The Now Show" fame etc. was doing some kind of stand-up gig via Twitter this evening.

He posted this lot, which raised a smile for me....

Hello tweeps! (leaves appropriate length pause for imagined response.... that'll do, continues)
As some of you will know, I'm principally a composer and performer of FUNNY SONGS (faint groan of dread resounds around internet);
Normally I never write funny words to old songs;
Ö but today Iím making an exception. The words will appear here and youíll have to sing them to yourselves. Now you DO know this tune
but just to make it more fun Iím not telling you what it is. Shouldnít take you a minute to figure it out.
Everybody ready? Here we go

Mama ooo-oo-oo-ooooo,You might want to get some help/If I still havenít moved this time tomorrow/
Twitter on, twitter on, as if nothing really matters(bong bong bong bong BONG bong BONG bongÖ)
Too late, Iíve wet myself/Sends shivers down my legs/Boots are catching all the dregs
Goodbye everybody, Iíve got to go/I can always use my iPhone on the lav
Mama ooo-oooo-oo- (send out for a pi-zza) I donít want to tweet, I sometimes wish Iíd never logged on at allÖ
(Go Brian!)
(Still Brian!)

Gallifrey-o Gallifrey-o Gallifrey-o Gallifrey-o Gallifrey-o and Skar-o PUNTASTIC-OOOO-OOO

I am not on TV, will you follow me? BISMILLAH NO! WE WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU Follow me! BISMILLAH! WE WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU
Follow me! BISMILLAH! WE WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU (follow me!) NEVER NEVER NEVER FOLLOW YOU-OO-OOO NO NO NO NO NO NO
