We’ve got the grandkids for the weekend. The grandson (2 years old) has woke up upset. He won’t go back to sleep without granddad cuddles. 
I’m now sat with him on the couch, cuddled in and he’s dozing off.

 

I know it’s cheesy. But I absolutely adore these moments.

Wow - a woke two year old!

:vrface:
They’re starting younger these days!

We are in the process of implementing a new system in work. We needed a lot of information to go onto it but there was guidance to say that a lot of specific information was NOT to be added right now and a decision would be made in July. I was asked if I had put the specific information on the system, to which I replied no you weren't to until the decision was made in July, I even forwarded the guidance to them. This was overruled by management and I then had to put it all on, which took at least a week. 

 

I was in a meeting yesterday and someone mentioned that a decision had not yet been made with regards to that specific information. I relayed this back to the management who are now chasing their tails wondering who they can blame. It won't be me as I managed to retrieve the email conversation where I challenged it and was overruled, which I have put on the back-burner for any subsequent meetings.  

 

All very :pleasing:I must say.

Oh I have no doubt they will. I spoke to one of them on the phone this morning and she was all nicey-nice. At the same time I could hear the cogs turning as she thought of a way how they can pin this one on me :laugh:

Down visiting family. Walking along dalry and gorgie and having a couple of pints in some classy establishments. Then popping into he hearts store to buy the third top. Walking along here always makes me feel like I'm back where I belong.

After a bit of a wait (not that long in the grand scheme of things but it felt like ages) and a last minute delay knocking things back by a week, finally moved house today. So that was nice. Well, the process wasn't, but the ending is.

Great stuff, all the best in your new home.

 

My best mate got the keys to her new place yesterday too. I’m being summonsed today to help remove wallpaper or whatever other job she has for me.

As a kid I used to quite enjoy scraping off the wallpaper. As an adult someone else can do it.

I've had hand problems and had to give up drums last year. Yesterday I got a parcel through the door - my mate had ordered me these things that go on drum sticks that give you something to hold so I can play again.

I spent a very sweet and sweaty couple of hours in the practice room yesterday, superb!

It wasn’t too bad but I’m knackered now. 6 hours straight work. I’ll be sore tomorrow.

Sure I had a picture of Paul Ritchie in that strip on my wall, might have been from a program

Looking forward to a Saturday out in the Pentland hills in the sun, with a few pints at the Allan Ramsay as a reward for my efforts. Yay.

Gave blood this morning, for the first time in over a year.  Was pleasantly surprised to see how many people were also doing the same, was 5 people when I was in, and 4 more in the seating area waiting.

 

I actually got a text to say they were looking for A+ donors because the stocks were low.  You can check them out here, might be that they need what you've got : https://www.scotblood.co.uk/about-blood/current-blood-stock-levels/

 

Got up, had breakfast, drank a shit load of water and went to the gym, then popped in to let them steal some blood.   I was in and out in 20 minutes, didn't feel faint and that's me for another couple of months :)

 

Anyone who is squeamish about doing it, the needle doesn't hurt, and they'll sit and talk to you to keep you distracted.  As long as you're well hydrated, you should feel fine afterward!

Finished work and now on 2 weeks annual leave. On Sunday I go on holiday. Not my usual holiday in the sun. 5 nights in a cottage in East Lothian. I’ll take it though.

I gave blood a few times. Never fainted but looked pale enough to have them putting my legs in the air on several occasions. Eventually they banned me.

My folks took me and my brother with them when we were wee. I ended up on a bed as I nearly passed out.

 

Tried to give blood 3 times myself and they sent me away because I was a state before I even got near a needle.

They were right in fairness as I struggle to stay conscious when I ever need to give a blood test.

Well done. I used to donate regularly, but they haven't been able to take it for years because of medication I take. Do they still give you badges when you've made certain numbers of donations?

I worked with a guy who's surname was Stone and would you believe he had the most difficult time giving his blood donation! Didn't put him off though!
