I mean, it has occurred to me that we might be buying in July 2007 here and maybe we should... renegotiate, but it's not a house that's likely to go up and down loads in price so not too worried there.

We are currently awaiting mortgage approval but I think we may just sit on it for a few months if we get approval

an exam I had scheduled for Monday was just cancelled which means I don't have to spend three days this week cramming a mind numbing 300 page textbook to pass a tickbox exercise for future work progression.

Few rascals for the weekend :) The brewery deliver their own brews if anyone wanted to support. These lads were on sale, 24 x 440ml beers for 45 euro, and 7 delivery.

Second note on the above is that I'm finished by horrible job today! Still working for the most evil man on the planet, which is a dose, but I have a new role that's mostly remote/wfh and my closest geographical coleagues are in the states. Werid time to start a new role, but sure it is what it is.

ANYWAY hence the celebratory beer

Well done Jonah.

In regards jobs, I'm writing fear-mongering coronavirus copy so my company can sell people VPNs. Can't say i'm delighted about it but at least we're only ripping off people with too much money.

Got made permanent in work and got promoted.

My mam found my old Walkman so I can play tapes again.
Congrats pal! What a nice thing to happen during this mayhem! I'm sure well deserved.

I've been playing with my childhood Talkboy, on walkmany subject.

Is the Talkboy the yoke Macauley Culkin uses in Home Alone to trick everyone into thinking he’s not alone?

Also, saw a red squirrel today in Wicklow and it was magnificent. The last time I saw a red squirrel was in Poland about 15-16 years ago. Don’t know when I last saw one in Ireland.
