Working!!!

I'm off till Wednesday and then in for my 4 days!
4 days......I'm on call 7 days a week! And by rights I should be retired!

Dunno what's the matter with you young guys these days.....premature baldness, testosterone deficiency, low sperm counts, in touch with your feminine sides etc.

If Steve McQueen were alive today he'd be bitchslapping the lot of you!
3 days of the week I do the same job as you..............



....f**k all by the looks of it :lol:
Got everything ticking over exactly as I want it now! When my boy walked out and left for Poland 3 years ago he dropped me right in the shit. Too many clients for just one.

But natural wastage occurs and the only new ones I take on are large corporates with big budgets......who only work Mon-Fri.

So I've reorganised everything now and got it under control. Cloud Linux keeps the servers under control so no worries there.

I'm trying to redress the work-life balance.

Having said that, I'll be working throughout the Xmas periods......4 new sites to go out by 1st Jan.

Still a way to go yet! Wife wants to move to another area of Spain next year where Winters are milder for her arthritis. Possibly around the Valencia area.

So still a lot on my plate really......but you gotta keep busy and have challenges and goals.

Yeah the missus piped up the other week about us moving in around 10 years time to a bungalow!!

We aren't that frigging old!

She has seen her dad struggle and they can't afford to move so she want's to set us up for old age :roll:

My goes are to stay put my challenge is to convince her :lol:

I think you guys are a bit young for a bungalow Stu. :lol:

The wife could do with one because of her arthritis through......so I suspect that's what we'd go for.

I know.......you think where did that time go?

My pension kicked in 3 weeks ago, so now my aim is to live to 100 so I can screw as much dosh out of them as possible.

Frankly I don't know how Pensioners in the UK can survive on that pittance.......it's not even possible here despite the cost of living being so much lower.

And don't expect it to get any easier Rich! Every year that passes you feel it more........you're on the downward spiral now.

Me and @Fred are way past that point........we've now in freefall! :(
