Anyway, good luck on your course tomorrow (which is likely today, now that I think about it), smokes.

Thanks Jack but after the ordeal I was left feeling violated. It was truly a madam to get through.

I won't know whether I've passed until just after Christmas, I believe. Yesterday I was sad but today I feel that if I have to resit, I can approach it armed with all the measures I have to take so as not to trip up like I was yesterday. I might even look forward to it.

Hit them with a stick. Hard.

That's good advice as most sticks are non-conductive.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

I got the call last week informing me that I'd passed that final exam which cheered me up no end. I needed that too as I'd been coerced back into working at least 3 weeks prior to when I'd intended. I am still having to work now and Christmas is well and truly upon us. It seems no matter how I plan, I will always find myself overstretched and missing out on personal time.

Ok, I know, I'm moaning on. I'll stop now.

Congratulations on passing the exam.  We could use an electrician right now.  I think a switch is out and I don't quite feel equipped to deal with it.  Two back to back light switches that control ceiling lights to kitchen and dining room.  I tried changing bulbs and checking fuses (we live in a 1912 house with original wiring).  The only thing left is the wall switch.  I don't think it would be that hairy to change it but I don't have a voltometer and feel out of my depth.  Electricity isn't anything to mess around with.  I can rewire a lamp but that's about the end of my expertise, so I know how much you had to master to get your certification and I take my hat off to you.

It's because of your skill and expertise that you are so in demand.  Hopefully you can take some time off over the holidays.

With the old stuff you want people who know what they're doing.

For instance, the last house we owned was built in the 1970's, and they cut corners EVERYWHERE. We had to hire a contractor just to unfuck the place.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Ok, all new proudest moment coming up ... my daughter represented Wandsworth in the London New Years Day Parade today. She is part of a small dance school that was asked to parade for our borough and she looked wonderful. Didn't really get any pics as 9 out of 10 were of the back of her head (there were tens of thousands of people to fight through to get a glimpse) but I saw her section on the televised broadcast so at least I have something to hold dear.

Incidentally, there were many American (and other international) troops parading:

That's really cool.  I'm sure you are proud of her and justifiably so.

Well done junior smokette.

Thanks guys.

I just found this online and my daughter is the taller one in darker skirt that does the double spin while going out of shot:

Yep, on the day I was a very happy dad. Must have told my entire phone book.

It was a nice cool afternoon so I no longer had the excuse of the world feeling like an oven.

So I got a walk in. I still miss Goodwill.

The former site of the Jack-in-the-box is growing extremely quickly, and it appears they took the car strike to heart, or maybe it's not going to be a Jack-in-the-box anymore.

They've inset the building quite a bit from the former, where there used to be a few outdoor tables and some grass, it now almost appears they are going to put a track in around the building, single lane. I can't tell where the indoor seating would go, so again, not sure it will be a JITB in future.

The Starbucks across the main road has a drive-thru, maybe they're just modernizing the design or have switched the side of the building the window will be on.

Other than that, I noticed mask usage is more uniform, but I did see several people wait until exiting their cars to put their masks on. I leave the house with it firmly affixed.

Much ado was made about the beaches reopening here, and some guy got bent up by a shark at my old hometown beach. My entire life, I don't think there's been so much as a shark SIGHTING, let alone an attack.

Oh how they've gentrified my former beach, I can't even recognize it.
