    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Urgh!

    Just made myself a rare coffee, and I made it too strong, but am watching the RAF thing and couldn't be bothered to go downstairs for more hot water. (I drink it black, you see).

    Bleugh!

    I'm sat on a bollard in Chesterfield. Not sure how the rest of today is going to pan out.

    Decidedly chilly in comparison with yesterday.

    I should have stuck to green tea with lemon!

    Morning all

    It's a much better day here today, nice and cool, just right for taking fence panels down and repairing them

    I'm actually a bit sweaty now due to struggling with that panel

    Got to dig a bloody hole now

    So many posts ... is there an 'auto-thank' setting somewhere?

    I did sort of read them quickly ... honest!

    Corporate Hostility? I used to have plenty of that where I worked. The only Corporate Hospitality I got was to go to see Watford play football.

    Then the (dis)organisation that I worked for decided that it 'wasn't proper' to accept these things. The Head Of Department then went on an all expenses paid trip to see the Monaco F1 ... one rule for them and one for us.
