Let's play ball... - The Paranoid Android

Let's play ball...
Last night the Finance softball team managed to secure themselves a position in the semi-finals without my help.  since moving the washing machine on the weekend (or carrying the wet laundry to the 'rents) my back has been protesting.  By yesterday it felt like I had several very hot needles digging in my spine around the small of my back.  It's not fantastic today, but it is getting better.  Playing softball with a bad back just seemed like a bad idea.

Someone set up a meeting with me at 9:30 this morning.  This is a little harsh considering I don't start until 10:00!  I would have made it in on time (for the meeting) except both the District line and Central line had delays this morning.  This is typical!

Last night a conversation with my guv'nor prompted me to check out TFL's alert service.  You can set up your usual route (across the London Transport run systems) and times and it will send you an SMS with any delays or problems.  Sure enough at 8:30 this morning I was informed that both the District and Central lines had delays!  I wonder if there is a day that goes by that I don't get a message from them...

There's another England game today.  My place of work has decided to cut its losses and provided big screens in the canteen to watch the game.  They are also providing free food and beer.  That's one way to ensure half the work force doesn't throw a sicky today!

As the beer in the canteen is usually a bit shyte, I have gone out and purchased a few bottles of my own.

The game looks to be an easy one on paper... but T&T managed to hold Sweden to a draw with just 10 men last weekend.  Hopefully our performance last Saturday was just starting nerves and we will play more confidently today... I'm not sure my nerves could take a repeat of the last game!

TFL is a beautiful thing. If you remember to use it. Which I never do. ;-)

What happened to your washer/dryer??

Well - we have ordered a new belt... so if I can just work out how to attach it we should have a working machine again for the weekend...

::fingers crossed::
