you mean English. The Scottish equivalent would be knocking back a bottle of Bucky, pissing in the river and wondering how a shopping trolly ended up in there.

I've had the Full House theme song stuck in my head for the last 3 days.

I seem to remember that a huge percentage of all Buckfast (or Buckie) is sold in Scotland, I also seem to remember that a huge part of that was sold in Coatbridge (or "the brig").

You're not missing anything it's kinda syrupy like benilyn or something it's also sickly sweet, blows yer heid aff but kills ye in the morn.

I'm awake as I can't sleep, think I'm stressed. Got a late start tomorrow but don't even feel like going in at the moment.

I'm fucked off, I just put the wrong money in the bus slot, exact fare in Dublin, and now I have none left. Guess I'll be walking home from work today.

Ale and I threw a fancy dress party last Saturday to celebrate our birthdays.
I decided to reveal my true identity as Ursula the sea witch (from The Little Mermaid) in a once in a life time event.

Ale was a garden gnome, but I won't post any pics because I don't know if she'd like it. But we'll soon upload a bunch on Facebook, so if you want to have a laugh, go see. :oP

Thank you! It was a lot of fun and quite easy to make. :o)
Sandy, Ale went as a garden gnome. Something like this but with red trousers and a blue watering can instead of a lantern. :oP

I'm fucking shattered, just in the door, wet, tired, cold & fucking sore.

I started today at 9am and was supposed to finish at 5.00/5.30 I actually finished at 6:40 then had to walk home, the weather has been great for days, except today where there were showers guess who got caught in one !!!

The sheen is wearing off this new job pish very fucking quickly. I'm due in again at 9:00 tomorrow morning, I've dinner to cook, a uniform to wash and dry before I can even think about going to bed.... we'll see how that fucking works out.

Overtime is the new normal now. Unpaid overtime. Crews are down to bare bones and jobs have to get done. Unless you're a factory worker, you're not going to be leaving on time every day or even most days. That's just the way it is.

You are fortunate to have a 9:00 AM start time. I don't know anyone who starts work that late.

As for the uniform--they only gave you one? That's something to complain about.
