  1. He was doing a pish at the time.  If your wrist is bigger than his cock, you've been using it a lot lately . 
    This is the lockdown achievement thread isn't it.
    No longer having fingerprints might be mine now
    I look better than that in a swimsuit, not a difficult challenge mind you
    Go muscles not show muscles 
    Mine used to be from cycling, about 5 miles a day almost everyday from about 13 - 20.
    Seeing the other pictures it didn't look as skinny. But still. Treat yerself to a proper dinner once in a while.

  2. It’s him, it’s not you.
    He's fairly sensitive at the moment, not seeing school friends and today we were meant to be driving from cork to Edinburgh to see family
    Seems easy to trigger at the moment and it the most ridiculous of things
    Probably heard you saying "effin" with your angry voice before, as in there's only one f in for.
    Oh more than likely. It's probably first time I have used effin educationally and it's confused the poor bugger

  3. I suggest we watch a tv programme or film, something that’s usually been recommended or has good reviews. She’ll come out with some pish excuse as to not wanting to watch it, usually muttering that it sounds shite.

    Without fail, a week or two later she’ll come in from work buzzing that Pamela, Louise or Joanna (insert any random name, as I don’t know or give a f**k about any of her colleagues), has suggested watching the exact programme and it now miraculously sounds really good.

    I fills me with absolute rage.
    See game of thrones
    4 years after I suggested it, she decided aye cause all her pals were talking about the end of series 7. Binge watched with the usual explain what is happening in front of her.

    I get the fear over her next brain fart for TV show watching which will undoubtedly lead to me explaining the basics

  4. It is for me, as I’ve been using it as a coping mechanism for some time now. I can’t answer for other people but anyone abstaining deserves credit imo
    I have a 5 year old and toddler under 2. Stuck indoors. No real outlet for energy. Of course a vino relaxo is happening. It's not as if tanning a bottle a night. It's one or two whilst unwinding watching what ever shite she who was be obeyed has recorded.
    Side note. She's dealing with the kids all day whilst I hide in my office.. working.

  5. Good grief man, we've been hit, we've been hit!

    My monthly valuation made for pretty grim reading this morning. March had a fall in value big enough to take the fund back down to its October 2018 valuation, 17-months of savings wiped out.

    Good time to buy, and a good time to cry.
    Fund prices can go down as well as up. A phrase I may have said about 40 times this week alone.

    Some people are hilarious at the moment, apparently given the opportunity to pick your own funds mean I should personally be micromanaging it in order to stave off loses.

    You wanna stick in equity when markets wobble, crack on.
    You wanna invest it all in a cash fund (cash fund does not mean it's cashed and stays same value, see above about fund prices...) Crack on
    Just don't come whining to me when it's dropped in value as if I can actually do something.

  6. Successfully worked around work IT settings to install my home printer and scanner to scan documents for a massive project I am working on.

    Expecting some bother down the line if they do a program check but I get the feeling that as the director of pension admin is project lead my ingenuity might be a saving grace towards delivering project on time and it will be brushed under carpet once I promise to remove when project/ lockdown is over.

    The joys.

  7. No call for Dyson?
    Dodgy as f**k him, backs brexit then moves hq to Singapore, applies for contract to provide respirator machines despite having never made them... And wins.
    Ok Branson is the fudd paying no tax, got a 20bn NHS contract and still paid no tax and then tried to sue NHS.
    Tim Martin is a genuine c**t, from brexit to covid I hope his pubs all die.
    Ashley is a greedy twat but he has Dave king in his pocket and will no doubt end the mighty morphin Glasgow rangers with winning his court cases and costs.

  8. Keeping up my consecutive days making my 5 year old cry.
    Apparently being told not to jump on the couch is today's winner.
    Past winners include:
    Deleting duplicate recordings of paw patrol
    Sitting on the same chair I had been for the last 2 hours because his kindle needed charged and the charger was beside me.
    The microwave being turned off (1 year old discovered chairs can move and be climbed)
    His pizza not being ready.
    Ah the joys of being locked down

  9.  I never spent much time in them but there was one down at Kirkgate in Leith that me and the Mrs popped in to once and I remember being immediately alarmed by the repayments being on a weekly basis and over such a long period of time. The price you would pay for every item would easily be 4 times more than it was worth and almost nobody goes by weekly repayments on any item they buy. Strange how they lasted so long!
    I remember seeing one in westerhailes and seeing the repayments and the shop was fairly busy.
    What got me was people buying laptops etc from there.
    By time they paid it off at an inflated price it would be practically obselete (most were near it anyway, low powered celerons) and the process would need started again.

  10. You should have thought about that before and locked an IT guy in the basement, what were you thinking?
    We use display link on laptop, not many tvs have a display link po try.
    The it guy gave me a displaylink to hdmi converter but the TV is a rear projection bravia. It's 50 inch so one screen being laptop 15 inch and then second being a washed looking 50 is a smidge too dis proportionate for me without a decent length hdmi cable.
    Company ordered a few monitors for staff so I just need to bother my arse into the office to collect it next time I go printing.

  11. We are on week two of this, my wife has lost her job as her workplace is closed for foreseeable.
    I turned the kids toy room into an office. The main door is locked. The second door to the bathroom is locked on my side so I can use it and wife and eldest can use that bathroom (using upstairs bathroom involves stopping daredevil toddler racing them up the stairs).
    I had tried the kitchen as an office but as alluded to elsewhere on the first day the toddler decided to sit beside me, toddler speak at me, shit himself and continue toddler talk. All whilst I was trying to explain to the hard of thinking that investments can go down as well as up.

    I have tried to keep to the same routine as pre work from home. Up shower, dressed, coffee and head to work.
    Just now I get proper cooked lunch and the commute has gone from an hour each way to a minute.
    I get to pop into the office once a week for posting. I'm midst a massive project and dropping to one screen is a pain in the tits. The other option is get the long HDMI cable I have and try and use my old TV as a second screen.

  12. Currently doing that self isolation guff as has roughly 36/32 counties in Ireland are doing and the youngest has been my shadow over the day.
    Wife said he's really taken to you at the moment and I joked it was Stockholm syndrome.
    Is that like autism or down syndrome she asks...

    I may be spending the night on the couch after I stop laughing
