I'll probably plant a tree to offset my use of tissues this week.
... I'm sure you can do without my self pity and moans of perpetual sneezing.
Still suffering from my man flu- haven't felt like tweeting as I'd have only offered miserable self pity...
This sounds crazy but I might take the opportunity to design an alien thingy. It needs to light up brightly.
Today, however, I am off work. Flue symptoms started last night and I feel terrible!
On the boat yesterday taking advantage of an available ROV & found something interesting! Not sure what it is yet. Will return!
It's getting pretty cold up here in Scotland. And it's going to get colder, that I'm sure of. I need thicker socks.
Just tried the game app Coindozer. Appropriate name- involves coins and dozing! It's not a game, it's an egg timer!

Even better - we're going to have a McDonalds! Can't wait. And NO lectures please ;-)
I think we're going to catch a bus today! Actually a bit excited. Is that too sad?

Right, things to go, places to meet, people to do etc... later.
And unexpectedly free today and for the weekend... might take family somewhere nice.
Anyway, moan over, but yesterday really was odd. I feel better about it after a sleep.
You work hard to impress someone you respect and somebody else screws it up in a most peculiar way. Typical...
I also felt embarrassed that my judgement was initially wrong dispite the 'powers that be' having a friendly giggle...
I think that was one of my most bazaar experiences to date, and actually a little hurtful in a strange way...
Told yesterday, by someone I WAS organising a work placement for, that my CV isn't impressive! Talk about blowing it! Next.
Computers! Wasted days trying to fix the software, thinking it was a virus and all the time it was a manufacturing fault.
So I called the laptop repair man and the hard drive was dead...So yes, I'm waiting for a new part. Annoying but it'll be fixed
The Wee Lad has one of these inset days so he's home today, yay! I imagine it means it's 'bring a bottle' day for the teachers.
And, when's my laptop due to come back from the laptop mending man?
You can never tell what challenge your going to face next I guess?
What a freaky day today has been!? An odd and disappointing start followed by an almighty stroke of good fortune...
I can't keep awake! Good night all.
And now I'm on land everything is swaying. It's cheaper than alcohol!
Having a great time and the weather has been good to us :-) (so far) 6am starts and 16 hour work days- I'm quite tired!
I'm still alive folks! Not been active on Twitter these last few days - been on the boat ROVing...
Off shopping for food as soon as the supermarket opens. Well, 53% food, 40% chocolate & crisps (potato chips) & 7% Pot Noodle
It's a beautiful morning. Spending next 9 days on the boat - it'd be great if every day was as fine as this. Unlikely though.
Typos are mostly OK. It's auto correct that's most dangerous. Some of these are hilarious: damnyouautocorrect.com/13603/
...as there was no way I was going to be outdone by this fella. (Tower of London on Tuesday) pic.twitter.com/N3xKZ8OLrZ
I gave up on my laptop and took it to the store to be fixed. John Lewis in the UK are the best when it comes to warranties :-)
I feel at a bit of a loss without my laptop. I keep looking mournfully at Dave (my lonely Ikea desk) and wishing it was back.
Up early this morning to spend the day preparing the boat. I've a big list of things to buy and do.
You know that you know an album too well when you expect the next song and it's disappointing when it doesn't come.
Woke up to 'We will rock you'. The wee lad is listening to it. Good motivational song to jump out of bed to 'til you stub a toe.
Being ugly and reliable is better than being ugly and unreliable my toothbrush said pointing a bristle at me.
After the evening I've had I half expected my electric tooth brush not to work. It's ugly but reliable.
I am, of course, talking about computers... but you can apply my last tweet in any way that suits you :-)
If your going to spend your life with something that'll cause you years of misery it should at least look good...
Owning a nicely designed computer half compensates for the misery it puts you through...
I already have a million to dos tomorrow. Now I have 1,000,001. I hate computers. Love what they can do, but hate them.
I'm even tempted to leave Microsoft behind entirely and go completely to Mac.
Not wasting another 48 hours pissing around with Windows 7. Taking laptop back to the shop tomorrow as it's within warranty.
Guess what... Yep, Windows 7 has let me down again. In fact I'm certain it's the hard drive is screwed.
