It’s a tough job, but . . .

by NobblySan

. . . someone’s got to do it.

Ah well – it had to happen eventually, I suppose.

An email came round work this afternoon suggesting that those who could do, may choose to work from home for the foreseeable future.

Barely had the cheering died down, than there was a rumble of shoes on carpet tiles, as the assembled dedicated mass of company-focused engineers made their way to the car park, with all the decorum and subtlety of a Le Mans start.

My own crew collected their stuff and were out of there faster than a ferret up a drainpipe, trailing HDMI leads and monitors in their wake.

Whilst generally viewing as a good thing the chance to work from home, without the need to spend 2 hours a day stuck in traffic and swearing at politicians on the radio, I do have one serious misgiving about this turn of events.

I will now have to perform certain vital and unavoidable daily tasks from home rather than at work, and thus be forced to use my own supply of toilet paper, rather than the company stuff.

I loathe weddings AND dresses but I binge watch this show

The humor, the positivity, the Essex sassiness of the proprietors of this UK store…I just can’t get enough.

They call him the Bob Ross of bushcraft

by allthoughtswork

In actuality, Andrew Davidson is a carpenter with a degree in filmography who posts his short UK leave-no-trace camping adventures in a series of soothing wilderness videos.

Soft spoken and genial, he uses calming background music and most of his footage is stable rather than bouncing along at the end of a selfie stick. (thank god)

Brits surf the River Severn bore

by allthoughtswork

Hundreds of spectators line the banks of the river Severn in Gloucestershire to watch surfers and kayakers riding a 4 star bore, September 30 2019. Bores are rated up to five and reach their highest peaks due to many factors including when the moon is closest overhead.

Fewer shark attacks, but a much higher chance of swallowing farm runoff. Surf bums must pick their battles.
