Aye...Easter stuff coming in with a small amount of valentines stuff....on the 27th December. Used to get Jan sale stuff in December, that was about the most spontaneous part of retail..a months notice.


Oh and any Wimbledon purges were poorly thought out too. CBA with thinking of something new, what did we do last year? Pimms and lemonade. Great idea Cuntfeatures we'll do it this year. We run out of Pimms one year so me and a mate decided to go off on one and develop a Manstand with McCoys, Beer and Yorkie Bars. More popular than poncy ol' Andy Murray fuck me stand that's for sure, shit was flying.

Yup. Entering the golden quarter which is when shops make most of their money. Going over strategies and all that stuff.

Christmas dinner in summer? Done that before. With crackers and hats and stuff. :lol:

It was the old manager of the pub we drink in, about twenty years ago and he was always doing quirky things like that. I think he started it because the proper staff Christmas do was cancelled one year. It became a regular thing. Unfortunately he's no longer with us.

No ring sting from yesterdays madras. Though I was speaking to the guy I went there with yesterday and we both feel sort of cheated. Cheated out of arsehole on fire. Next time I am going for the vinderloo. Then I will most likely need a toilet roll in the freezer.

Just come back from Madrid (as you know) so whenever you want recommendations, hit me up.

Had a lovely time with zero aggro.

It was payday, so I've got a damnation ticket ordered, a bottle of nice vodka on the way, I'm picking up some cream after work to make white russians, FIFA should be on the doorstep, and day off work tomorrow.

Living the dream.
