Nobody died

We had a games night a couple of weeks ago and towards then end of the night we gave Throw, throw Burrito a go.  As expected it ended up in carnage, but it was fun.  We had to move all of our drink glasses to another room before play commenced.

6 months done

Another 2 and a half to go.  I'm now been at my current contracting role for 6 months.  It's flown by.  The last couple of weeks haven't been tremendously fun but the project will end eventually...  The rest of the time's been great.  I do turn up an hour early each day but also get to leave at 5 so they get an extra half an hour of Stu time for free.  Bargain.

My contract ends at the end of October.  We will see what happens after that, you never know, they may extent again, but the current plan is to start looking in a month or so's time.

Work away day

We had a departmental away day last week and it culminated in us all going on a bbq boat.  Urgh.  I don't like going on boats at the best of times but this time I was still hanging from going on the booze with the rugby nights the night before.

Luckily it was on the flat waters of Canary Wharf.


We bought a new (second hand) sofa and chair from a charity shop on Saturday on a whim.  It still needed a bit of a clean but resulted in nearly £4 in change down one of the sides.  $1.50 in Aussie $ too.

Chili twig is producing a lot of chillis

It's been on deaths door for years now but still manages to produce the odd chili.  The latest harvest has yielded 10!

Missed the charity shield on Sunday

As I had to go to a friend's daughter's 3rd birthday party.  It was meant to be a really good game.  Urgh.

Saying that it wasn't that bad, there was a bouncy castle and plenty of booze.

Easy like Sunday morning

She finally likes swings

She's now 21 months old and she finally likes the swing.  This is the best play ground apparatus as apart from the occasional push you don't have to do much.  Although she can generally climb up most slides you still have to help her and make sure she doesn't plummet down too fast (she's done that once already and took a face full of dirt).

So good I bought two

I bought this mug for a friend's birthday a couple of weeks back, I also bought myself one.  Unfortunately it came all the way from China so arrived late.

Our fat cat

Josie's doing well in her new home but despite being on a strict diet I don't think she's losing much weight.  I do treat her occasionally, but surely she'll be able to fit back through the cat flap unaided at some point.
