  1. What is it about Annan and Hamilton. Last time Annan won 1-0 time before 4-1. Seems to be a bogey fixture down there.
  2. Remember a guy I worked with taking a contractor to do some work on the prison grounds. He took him round and had to stand with him all day. He said he told the contractor about this area being where the last man to be hung in Scotland was. So he took the contractor down to the staff room for his lunch, he fucked off to the kitchen and got some bones that were taken out of what ever was for lunch that day. Buried them roughly where the guy was working. Says the boy about shit a brick when he came across them. Proclaimed it in front of the staff room to us all and the usual types went straight to management whilst the rest of us found it quite amusing.
  3. Really disappointed not to have won that. Can’t help but feel what could’ve been at the draw. Hearts looked really poor, only clear chance was the penalty. If I was a hearts fan I’d be concerned at what the rest of this season holds. Bonus, I though Buchanan and durnan looked really good at the back. And I’ve been a big critic of both, so was happy to see that. Sammon was utter dross the whole game.
  4. As an snp voter I’ve never been a fan of Mackay, but within the party such statement gets you hounded.
  5. After the shite of getting fired last week and feeling alright about it, and not how I thought I would, I got an email today saying I’ve been accepted into the PGDE in secondary education. Honestly haven’t felt this good in a while. I hope it will last.
  6. Just had a google of that, what a colour that is btw. Much nicer than the shade they use now.
  7. Just a random thought, as a Falkirk fan I do like our colours of blue and white. But, and I don’t know why, I’ve always felt white should’ve been our dominant colour and blue or secondary colour. What about any other team? Or your own? Right colours or what alternative?
  8. Saw this. I know it doesn’t work for everyone but I know for me every Saturday football has been a release from the stresses of life...aside from the stresses that come with being a falkirk fan. I just wanted to say I hope everyone is doing ok, I know January can be a horrible month. New year, same stressors, linger wait for pay etc. I hope everyone has made it through ok.
  9. That’s natural mate, your pet becomes such a big part of your family that when they sadly are no longer with us it that it leaves a big hole in our hearts. I hope you are all ok, as it’s not an easy thing.
  10. You know something, having been fired from my job for taking my second sick day in 9 months, I feel somewhat liberated. I’m on a high not a downer. It seems mad to say it but it’s how I feel. I think probably because it gives me a couple of weeks to get ahead of everything for uni etc. But still, I actually feel great. After the cursing my former boss for a few hours straight haha.
  11. This is our house cat, lovely wee thing who becomes a catty wee bitch at feeding time [emoji23] And this is our wee playful outdoor cat.
  12. Aye mate I was a warder no a con [emoji23] just now looking at anything that comes up, can’t plan too far ahead as I’m waiting to find out the outcome of my PGDE interview, and as teaching is my first choice I can’t really start pressing onto anything else until the Uni’s have got back to me.
  13. Union basically said I have no rights as I’ve only been there 9 months, still, pissed off at a 30 second phone call saying it’s no working out cause I phoned in sick... Bright side, I’ve an interview working nights in a rehab centre. I worked in care during my first couple of years in uni after leaving the prison so feel like this is a good chance to use those skills learnt from both.
  14. I had an interview on Monday for PGDE in modern studies, fingers crossed but it’s a months wait to find out.
  15. Well tonight I was “let go” via a phone call due to me taking my second sick day, flu, in my 9 month tenure at my employment...fair to say I’m straight to the union in the morning.
  16. Aye I’ve a mate in Alford and use it when I go there to visit him
  17. Thank you mate, worked in Peterhead long enough but commuted from Aberdeen so never got to see what was in it. Enjoy the game, just not too much
  18. Aye I worked in the old Aberdeen prison then Grampian. Never had the joys of old Peterhead but given they still had slopping out i don’t think I missed much. My grans grew up in Portsoy so think that’s on the cards for Sunday. ETA: is there any soft play centres nearby or other things for kids to do? She’s not coming to the football so she’s going to do something with the wee one.
