🎂 Sotonians milestones

:birthday: Sotonians milestones


Always thought she was a Norf Lundun gal tbh.

I don’t follow popular beat combo music much these days.

Is she famous or something?

Didn’t she sing something about umbrellas, Singing In The Rain, or something like that?


I don’t think I’d know her if she sang at a Karaoke bar or the title of any of her songs.



She ain’t spinning around that pole.


When I close my eyes she is.



Asking for a friend like :lou_eyes_to_sky:


No, I’ve got my dressing gown on.


So after @Goatboy saying the Enmore and me saying the Versailles, I’ve gone for the Port Morant(more in the bottle, so no real choice).
I’m now going to do an honest review(with @lifeintheslowlane in mind).
So first thoughts: fuck that was expensive(i’m as big a mug as anyone).
Packaging looks good, but being honest i’d rather it was cheaper and in a plain bottle.
First taste. Oh, that’s weird, it tastes like i’ve brought up a bit of sick(i’m not joking).
It’s a bit like tasting fish sauce, when the closest you’ve been to these flavours is a supermarket battered cod(it cost a lot, i’m going to defend it, ok).
So i got past the weird bit(second glass) and i’ve got to be honest, it’s beyond me to describe. Best i’ve got, is the earthiest rum i’ve had. Loads going on, but not the grassy kind @Goatboy
A similar after taste to an excellent peat whisky, which is a wonderful thing. It’s quite a weird but ultimately enjoyable drink.
At the price, i wouldn’t bother, unless it’s something you really want to try(it’s getting better with every sip), but is a special drink ,if you can get past the initial taste of your own vomit, but that means there’s probably something wrong with you.
I’m off to think about that last sentence(and finish the bottle).


Think you just described our Bullfrogs at Rock Bottom there.
I’ll miss those.
But won’t miss the morning afters


Last day of work in my current team. Going to miss them as we had a great bunch, we’d helped each other out and also had lots of laughs. My manager although sad to see me go encouraged me to go for a job I’d be happier in. I even got a big hug and a kiss on the cheek from him!
I have a week and a bit off and then I will be in the team sending them work. Ek. Hopefully they won’t hate me then!


Insignificant in the context of global events and forum life, but in the context of what should happen this year personally, a pretty major step
Yep, I just cooked my 1st Bacon & Egg sarnie here in Poland.

Tomorrow hopefully viewing somewhere to rent, bloody growing City, places to rent are like clean sheets for Saints, not an easy job finding anything!


Most people cook bacon and egg sarnies far earlier in life :smiley:

Still, better late than pregnant.


Its a bit late for breakfast ?


Ok you got me. Mrs D_P was out, told me to fix my own lunch. I couldn’t face Chicken Soup again…


did my first day in the new job. Lots of just sitting there and watching. They may want me to actually do work tomorrow. I have lots of questions about processes and wondering when I am able to start suggesting some changes…


Suggesting changes deffinately 2nd day on the job wait for the “ but we always do it this way”

“Yes not the right way is the reply”


Yes I was always asking stuff in old job and always told that’s how we do it.
I just want to do less unnecessary work. Already seen loads of stuff that shouldn’t be recorded and wastes time.


New eyes in a new job if your in charge tell them what you would like them to do, If they dont comply tell them its my way or the highway


For the next 4cweeks I will be Dubish Phil.
Yep, after a hugely stressful 3 days chasing shadows & viewing shitholes we have finally found and rented a place. Not perfect but it’s modern, warm 300m from a bus stop in a village between the in-laws & the airport in the western side of Krakow.
About 4 weeks until we get everything sorted, but such a relief.
Now to get some business going.
Oh and after 2 years of construction & dust, THIS is the view.

The stress was I need to be registered at an address by 19th March and not finding somewhere on this trip could have caused nightmares 're residency.



Nice. Good luck Phil. Now get the fucking guest room ready.
