telling a colleague at 9.30 this morning that you'll be in touch as soon as insurers have responded and so far he and his colleague have chased 4 times

Have currently been sat on a motionless Met Line train for over half an hour, in between stops so we can't even get off. The number of days with delays vastly, vastly outnumber the days where it runs smoothly. At this rate I'll be asking for so many service refunds that they will be paying me to travel with them.

Mate. Its bad. That failure is one of the worst , infact it's the worst failure possible.

All of the computers that control the signalling system are offline, they can't run without out.

I hope you get off soon but soon as your moving get off that train your going nowhere .

Big fire at farringdon apparently has burned out the cable.

We listening to it on the incident channel. Not good.

Was looking like it was going to be a bit warmer this week here down in the south…and our builder had great hopes that this week they’d be able to finish our new extension brick and block work and get the roof on.

But no. Freezing. Looking like little progress going to be possible until Wednesday earliest.☹️

We'll get off the forum and sort it out man! ?

Yeah after 40 mins they eventually crawled to Kings Cross and let us off. I went one stop to Euston on the Northern and am now sat on the Overground which takes forever. Might make it home by 7.

And yet my director doesn't want us working from home. What an utter waste of life.

At my daughters birthday party she invited a few friends to the usual inflatable place then on for a KFC. Thats all fine but when we are actually in the place and the kids have been playing half an hour we receive a text message . One of the mothers inform us their daughter has epilepsy and to look out for any signs.
Is it just me or is this the sort of thing we should be told before we take her out. I wasn't pleased about it.

Weekend before last I injured my back playing golf. Yesterday I tweaked my calf when out for a run. Not liking this getting old malarky!

TV channels that are louder or quieter than others or that have the ads at a higher volume than the program you are watching. Surely this should be standard, fed up with constantly adjusting the volume.
Definitely not funny when you’re wearing headphones

Some tv’s have the option to adjust differing channel sound outputs to similar levels,my Pana has:)
