Thanks guys!

Unfortunately he's had some hopefully minor medical issues (I'll spare you the details but he once made a topic about it) that was extremely painful for him. H's on the mend but not a happy bunny,

Dad's sort of recovering but still grumpy. I'm trying to hang on but work and Dads situation are making it hard.

Dad's almost back to his regular eating pattern and I showed my "good side" at work by doing a bit of overtime. Desperate times and not enough people.

Got a rent increase notification today - a pretty significant one. Not happy.

Spent an hour talking to BF on the phone. I'm planning to stay over at his for a couple of days during Assumption.

I'm covering the emergency hotline this weekend - never looked forward to Monday this much. I'm basically stand-by outside office hours.

Back in the 2003-5 when I worked at North Star we had a pager that one person had to wear on the weekend to be on call for an account out of Germany that was providing internet service world wide.


You got paid more to wear it but you had to respond to a call on site within 2 hours. No matter where you were and what you were doing you would have to up and leave.


It was great if it didn't go off because you got paid to wear it, but if it did you could be in for a long day or night or both.

Last evening I had 5 calls in one hour - I thought "if this keeps up the like 25 euros I'm paid for this are no way near enough". May 4th is WW2 remembrance day and I was worried I couldn't be silent for 2 minutes at 8 o'-clock, but after that the calls stopped and I didn't receive any others the rest of the night.

Unfortunately I was called at 2AM today...


with a stupid question.


WHich may be preferrable over a client who's in deep doodoo at that time of night, but still annoying.

We became grandparents in January. They live in London, but have just been over here to visit family. We had them here for just over two weeks, it was great to see them and interact with our granddaughter, but things have now returned to normal. I still got plenty of practice in while they were here, but I need to knuckle down to get my first album finished by the end of June.

Apparently bands in the UK only get paid £350 for a gig and even then only if they're doing covers.

It doesn't seem like a career for working class folk.
