I hope I can find the others on DVD someday. When I first saw it I was a bit too young to understand much but I remembered that time measure at the top left corner and of course the opening theme. When I was at secondary school I found the show was being repeated and taped it - it was the Cathedral Builders - and it had me in stitches at points. Watched the rest after that if I had the chance.

One of the voices in it is Ger Smit, who died in 2021 but who did such a plethora of brilliant voices that, when he passed away, I couldn't be sad. I remembered the time I heard him as Greedy Smurf saying "my poor soufflé" that made me laugh so hard just from the way he said that, that I couldn't hear the word "souffle" for weeks without bursting into laughter.

Rough day - was given a senior task that ended up being such a Gordian Knot I spent 2 hours untangling it. It involved a client who found bookings in her account she hadn't made and another client who found her bookings got cancelled and there was a strange name in her account.

Turned out one colleague had merged two accounts of people who didn't know each other - and unfortunately had shifted payments around between them, so that a refund on a payment of client A was issued to client B, and client B's payment was on a booking from client A.

I hope I never have to go through that again.

I understand you, Bonny, it's the kind of thing that could have been easily avoided but takes time to resolve. Without taking the customer's impatience irritation into account.

As for me, I've got sooo much work I'm exhausted and go to bed around 9 pm, these days. But I've got a pretty good looking tan and I've met quite a few enjoyable women. :D

That sounds good Aqua!

Doing relatively well considering one of my co-workers had a brain infection and another one had a stillborn child. Will be visiting my BF tomorrow.

Unfortunately for me his family is football-mad and the EC has just started.

Back from the in-laws!
BF was sweet enough to limit his football watching to just the Dutch team. Poor guy had terrible shoulder pain.

Glad you had a good time at your in-laws, Bonny. What's wrong with your bf's shoulder?

He's quite stiff everywhere and with his work being PC-oriented his shoulder muscles have gotten so tense it's caused chronic pain. He's got stretching exercises now, hope that it'll be fixed after the physical therapy is done.

You should massage him, it would do him good.;) But I get it, we've got that kind of problem too in my line of work, carpal tunnel syndrome, backache, etc, etc. Hope he's gonna get better soon. Does he work out?

I've massaged him a lot of times - when he stayed here for a week, and when I was with him for a week, I massaged him daily. Same with his foot which appears to have a similar injury.

I guess with all the colleague issues I'm seeing, with one with an aneurysm, one with a brain infection, one with a sister who died from Corona and one with a stillborn child - being sore is hardly something to complain about. Like the heat rash and fallen off toe nail I have.

When I was at the office on Friday, the guy with the stillborn child dropped in to talk with my team manager. It was good to see him again, although odd since you just don't know how to behave.

I’m not sure what to say about your work situation Bonny. That’s pretty grim. I hope you are okay. And you too, Aqua?

Thing’s are good with me music wise, having made an important qualitative leap with the production side of things recently and creatively I’ve had a burst of new material. Health wise also pretty good except for a run of migraines after being migraine free for a couple of months.

Nice to hear your music's coming along! My music's been at a standstill since Belvilla.

My work was generous enough to send all customer service and home owner service colleagues a box of brownies. Sweet!
Very sweet. I tried the blondie and it was way too sweet, with weird white chocolate chunks. It's being consumed in very tiny bits - and then I have to wash the flavour down with water. :D

I have a Steam account with precisely 1 game I bought last month - Clue / Cluedo. I love Cluedo! So happy to be able to play it so frequently now :D

Also, yesterday I finally had the results come in of the AIVD puzzle I did last Christmas and new years. It's fiendishly difficult and I'm pleased with the result - in the top 3rd (just) and one of the puzzles I solved - and I solved myself on my own - turned out to be more difficult. Usually I can only solve the ones in the "easy" category.
