  1. I do the hot pool/cold pool thing whenever I get the chance to go to a thermal spa. Supposedly good for your metabolism. The water isn’t particularly deep mind you, generally chest high at most.
  2. I better empty that savings account I opened for him before he does it then.
  3. I’m hopeful that national service will still be a thing here and the army will teach him the tricks he will need to survive in these situations, as well as whatever he will require to know about getting his dad out the pub and up the road after a 12 hour session.
  4. Took a month off between late June and last week for various reasons(Heatwave, heavy cold, second vaccine, prolonged period of biblical thunderstorms) and my 10k time dropped from an easyish 54/55 minutes to 1:03 last week. Managed another two runs since, brought that back down to almost exactly an hour, and then 57m last night so slowly picking up my pace again. The HM I was due to do in May is in a few weeks. Going to try and get them to register me for next May rather than August, not a fucking chance I will manage it this year.
  5. Boy I know here bought one late last year. He is short, ginger, speccy and built like the side of a fiver, so I suspect some level of compensating for other things going on. That said, he also has a classic Jag, so most likely it’s just that he gets paid far too much money to know what to do with it, which isn’t too uncommon over here.
  6. Not a strong swimmer so tend not to go beyond any depth where I can’t stand up. Been in a few of the lakes over here that are fed by glaciers. 35c+ outside and the lakes are still only 16/17c when you go in. First one I jumped into near fucking killed me and that was despite me standing with the water at chest height. Took a minute to get my breathing right and the dizziness to pass. Absolute fucking fear when my son is older, that he will do the sort of stupid things teenagers do in these places.
  7. 8/10 for Monday. 7/10 for @Eednuds quiz. Strange thing with the cup quiz, wouldn't work on my mobile but worked fine when I done it on the clock(Works VPN...).

  9. Good shout. He might be wearing her trousers.
  10. Done a few different shift patterns. Monday to Friday 6am to 2pm took a bit of getting used to, but was much better than the 12pm to 10pm effort that we rotated with. 2 weeks of each at a time. Worked somewhere else doing 12 hour shifts, 5 days one week, 3 days the next. The way the schedule went you would end up with Thursday to Tuesday off every 6th week which was absolutely tremendous for getting away. Done night shift at the IBM in Greenock when I was a student down that way, was always good for a few quid during the holidays. Took a few days to get into the swing of it but never understood how some people struggled so badly with nightshift, I found it quite easy. That said. I much prefer Monday to Friday and standard office hours.
