    Oh dear...guess I've struck a bad chord with this thread... :oops:
    I thought it might spark some interest..hell..I know we work to live and not live to work, but I figured that if you have to spend all that time at work, you may as well try and see some good in it :roll:
    Back to the drawing board :cry:
     
  5. it was a good idea in theory :D ..the problem is that i live on the devon and cornwall border but i work in north devon, not by choice i may add, so most days i spend at least 11 hours at work and 2 of those hours i dont get paid for as its the drive home, so by the end of the week ive done about 10 hours and driven around 600 miles for nothing...difficult to find any good in it all really but it was a nice idea of yours, better luck with the next one :D

    It was a cracking idea but you were just unlucky enough to have a couple of miserable gits replying first and everything in this life is by choice. ;)

    Work is a means to an end for most folks (me included) and you have to pick something positive from it or move on. I have been contracting for many years and every contract has it ups & downs but I always come away with something positive but no pictures :D

    Oi!! - I resemble that remark!

    I really enjoy working - keeps me active & out and about...then usually I get home & get to start work all over again doing paperwork, making calls etc. I haven't even been in business for a year, so the added time I spend working takes a bit of getting used to...but if the economy picks up just a little bit I'll be very happy!!


    Don't have any pics from work as I appear to have lost my camera! :roll:

    What makes my day at work seem better is hammering down with rain, low cloud and strong winds. Fog also is very handy. Craig will agree with me i'm sure

    I'm guessing that you guys don't like the good weather when you're at work...I can echo that sentiment :(
    Nothing worse than sunshine outdoors, being stuck indoors and then when you get a day off it rains :evil:
    Happens a lot up here :roll:

    Commuting to work on the Bike (not my 675 - Yamaha DT 125!) changed my working life. 20 mins there 20 mins back free parking behind the office and keeps my skills up through the winter. No more buses/ waiting in stationery traffic and enjoyable to boot. When I think of all the time I have wasted travelling to work by car or over priced public transport!

    I'll bring my camera to work and post a pic of the scenic road junction outside the office, I sometimes stand at the window and watch all the DAS peeps with their instructors. I also do a fair bit of consultancy work for Liverpool CIty Council. I'm not there again until Thursday when we're having the office chrimbles lunch, so I'll post a few pics of Liverpool sometime towards the end of the week :lol:

    Hubble bubble, toil and trouble!!! :stir:
