Making involuntary noises is the real signs of ageing. You go to get up and this odd death wheeze comes out of your mouth.... "where the f*** did that come from?!"

Tweaked my shoulder at a water park last Monday, it's no big deal I've done it a couple of times before. Put a heat pad on it towards the end of last week and since then my actual shoulder is fine but it's like the pain has moved down my back to the bottom of my shoulder blade. I think I'm getting old.
Classic sign of ageing.

As you get older the pain can only escape your body via your toes. Or I might just have gout.

Made a slight faux pas this afternoon.

I've got the office window opened and I heard the blinds rattling like mad in the breeze so I stopped work to have a glance outside. The blue sky from an hour ago has vanished and all I can see are very heavy, dark rain clouds so I uttered aloud, "You bastard!".

I hadn't seen the stranger standing right by the window who overheard my utterance. The same stranger that has just walked into the office reception and is here for an interview...
Love it. <laugh>

So, had a ‘should we stay together’ talk with Mrs BB today. Been together 16 years or so and the last few have been a struggle tbh. Seem to irritate each other most of the time rather than make each other happy. Neither of us are perfect but we just seem to go round and around in circles. Going to work at it and see what happens.
Been there before chap with MrsOT and we both made a conscious effort to think about each other more. In fact, we've had the chat twice in 19 years and knowing we chat and opt to make the extra effort to be better means we both still care about our relationship.

It's not supposed to be cake and flowers and fluffy bunnies. It does take work to maintain a relationship and sometimes you both need a kick up the arse to remind each other.

All the best.

Oh, I'm not saying leave it as a shell, but there must be other restoration options that aren't quite as expensive. I also read something that the current wooden structure in the roof is only about 160 years old or so as it had to be rebuilt after the French revolution, so it's not even as if we're restoring something that was 800 years old and original. The anticipated cost just seems mind-boggling.
Aye it's pretty eye watering isn't it. I know the square root of bugger all about building restoration, I'm just happy for people to throw money at it until its fixed <laugh>. A lot of the roof was still the original medieval timber, though, for what it's worth.

I know what you mean about other causes needed the money, but there's a whole lot of money flying about the world and this is one place I'm happy to see it go.

For the next 3 weeks I'm covering 4 senior roles whilst they are off on hols/paternity/medical.

Piece of piss so far and was told by CEO that today was hectic.
Offer to do all of their jobs permanently, in exchange for all of their salaries of course.

Realised I've not posted in here since last August. Time f***ing goes. <urgh> Damn adulthood, getting in my way of procrastinating on the internet.
This is my first since last November!

Whilst it’s a shame, I find it a bit obscene that over half a billion (probably far more) will be spent rebuilding it considering the multitude of other issues that could be addressed with the money.
So disgusted was I with this post <mob> <grr>.

But nah I do disagree though. I'm sure I read that somewhere between 50 and 100bn quid is wasted merely through public sector inefficiency, maybe it was even more. And Notre Dame is one of Europe's most important symbols of the kind of long-term human endeavour and respect for preserving what is good that underpins civilisation. If we don't put up the money to restore it right away, and instead leave it for decades as a burnt-out shell covered in tarpaulin and scaffolding at the cultural epicentre of France, watching funding freeze up every couple of years, the implicit message it would send to current and future Europeans is that we just don't care enough any more. Often I reckon its important to sacrifice something (eg. money) for future benefits which seem merely abstract in the short term (eg. ambition, morale, identity, etc.). Especially since these abstract things are values which make it even worthwhile addressing the multitude of other issues you mention.
