    Covid - Being forced to work in the office

    Same happened to me. Small family firm, no HR and one of the family wanted me out. As BoroFur said, "they went low, I went high'. Bided my time until I got accepted for the perfect job, I documented everything and when hauled in front of the Directors after handing in my notice they conceded...

    China gives USA diplomats Anal Covid tests.

    Yeah apparently once anal|y tested, they use the same swab to sweep the nose and throat. If you can taste and smell it, it's good news - you don't have the virus (y)

    Nothing beats my either lashings of golden syrup or my mams made up one, which is a filling of mashed bananas, double cream, pinch of sugar and a squeeze of an orange - as a kid we'd smash these until we couldn't move

    Famous people you've seen in random places

    On my honeymoon, chilling in the pool and literally within minutes saw Ray Parlour and El Hadji Diouf. The latter was an absolute t!t , treating both his lady, kids and I’m guessing nanny like sh:te. Went for our evening meal and saw Kelvin Fletcher (Emmerdale) and Robbie Savage with his family.

    The truth about education

    My experience is not great - I have two kids, one in juniors and one in seniors. They both get sent work to complete on their respective online platforms, neither of which are ideal for learning and comprehension of the subject matter and are pretty much left to their own devices to complete...

    While we wait to be vacinated, is everyone taking Vitamin D3?

    Yes, I began taking it about 2 months ago - super strength (4000iu) daily. Apparently, if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it is recommended that we start taking it for the period of daylight saving hours if you normally work outside or take it all year round if you work indoors.

    WFH with young kids

    Cut yourself some slack is my first piece of advice - it really is an absolute ball ache! Secondly, sack any idea of educating if you haven't got the time! You need safe, fun resources to keep your young one entertained. Don't feel guilty about sticking her in front of an iPad or the tv, when...
