The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: What's annoying me today
As I'm sitting around in a coffee shop doing boredem, quick.update re my brother.
Still a way to go but is making remarkable progress. Out of ICU and relatively lucid now he's off the morphine. Feeding tubes etc all gone...even walking short distances down the ward with a frame.  Bizarre to think he was in a coma and in very real mortal danger just a week and a bit ago.

In all seriousness  people can knock the NHS all they like, but I'll call those who do ignorant c*nts.

Cheesecake Shop update: 

I've just ordered another large black coffee. But resisted further fat b@stardry.

Although I expect I'll be buzzing my bollocks off on caffeine shortly.

In other bored mundane news, my phone has just cheerfully beeped and informed me that the A1 sized canvas typography print of an excerpt of lyrics from Ian Brown's F.E.A.R. (white text on a 'walnut' background, since you ask) that I ordered from ebay on a whim is ready for collection from sainsburys ebay collection point thingy in Arnold. 2 days earlier than expected .

Which is nice.

No sausages.   It was a weird sort of take on a full english, featuring loads scrambled eggs, grilled tomato, a f*ck ton of quality bacon and large toasted ciabatta.

It was very nice.

Anyway, I might be in here for a while. Tentatively eyeing up the strawberry torte.

Must. Be . Strong.

Sitting in the cheesecake shop in Mapperley waiting for my MOT.
I meant to order a black coffee but before I knew what happened the words "I'll have a black coffee and a big breakfast please". Even though I've already had breakfast this morning.

You fat b@stard.

Sadly it all went wrong  with my brother and they've decided not to revive him just yet after all as there were complications (he already has a heart condition). Yesterday was a bit of a scare but he they stabilised him eventually.
The fact he's a heavy smoker hasn't helped,  but still.

So for for now he's still under and still on a ventilator.  We don't know how long for. Life can be  really f*cking sh!t sometimes.
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Sean Watch
I bought a new watch just yesterday funnily enough.

However, thanks for the concern but really rather busy between here and Lincoln, nothing more exciting, I'm afraid. Quite how Seán Snr is still going is marvel of modern medicine. He's a tough old boy.

Also having a bit of an extended leave from work so not at a desk all day pissing about on the internet when no one's looking.

My first 'grown up' current account was with TSB.
It would have been c.1987. 

I didn't have online banking, did have a snazzy blue folder thing and a pen as part of the welcome pack thingy. 

True story.
