Well I enjoyed that coffee in ages ! Sadly better make a move though or will be late for work, have a good day all !

Caffeine and matchsticks for me too.  Busy day here, I'll be in for gin with Bridget later, I hope.

Meanwhile, I am waiting for the IT service desk in London to sort out whatever is causing me to be unable to connect to my work email and files. Having them email me and ask if I am sure I have entered the correct username and password and to confirm that the internet is working correctly is not helpful. Terse email reply sent....

Good evening. Is it too early to ask for a glass of wine? Went for a lovely 9.5 mile run after work today and quite fancy a glass of wine.
Sweetest thing, hope the IT guys managed to sort your problem. The reply we always got from the IT department was... "Google the problem"...

The sun is over the yard-arm somewhere in the world, so wine you shall have, Jindalee. Red, white, rose or the bubbly variety?

No reply yet from IT. Ironically, if our IT service desk had been oursourced to India, I could almost ask them to come and sort it out personally

Thanks sweetest thing . Please can I have a glass of rose? Well, where I am atm the sun has set so I think it's ok to have some wine.

Lol, IT departments... hope they get it sorted for you soon.

*pours glass of perfectly chilled rose*

Enjoy! I've given you a little dish or nuts as well, just to heighten the virtual pub experience.

IT have sorted me out - my account was locked so they've unlocked it. I am back in touch with the Mother Ship

I've had an extra clinic sprung on me, so have been tea-less all morning! Twinings everyday, milk, large mug please *flump*

Whereabouts are you Sweetest Thing? I'm envious of the weather! *brrrr*

22/10/2014 at 12:13

Tea coming right up! *puts kettle on*

I'm working in Bangladesh for a couple of weeks, Bookie. It's hot but it's not really the kind of place where you can take advantage of it! A white woman, on her own, is an object of much curiosity and interest (nothing threatening) and there isn't the same amount of freedom that I have in the UK. Sleeveless tops are a no-no, legs and upper arms need to be covered up, modest necklines etc, and it is still pretty humid (although at least not the 98% levels I experienced in September!).

And the heat makes smelly things smell hear what I'm saying?

Aww thank you sweetest thing

* pays for the wine and the nuts and takes a little sip of wine*

Very delicious wine! Weather forecast for tomorrow is 26 degrees ( Celsius) over here and 28 for Saturday . Wohoo

oh I was just passing and noticed you were open - its it too early for a G&T?

22/10/2014 at 13:09

And would a B52 be just a little too extravagant for this time of day?


22/10/2014 at 13:26

Where are you, Jindalee? I'm thinking Australia or NZ?

Never too early for a G&T in the Runner's Arms, Jenni-far-far

Mr Puffy, I like your thinking - combine coffee with alcohol and give it a fast name.

I just fell asleep in the chair and so need something to keep me awake for the next 7 hours please....

22/10/2014 at 13:37
Spot on sweetest thing. I'm in Australia atm.
Getting late here now so have to leave you for today. Night nite, and thanks for a lovely evening
22/10/2014 at 13:40

KKNN, Jindalee - I am hoping to visit Australia in January with Mr ST (if we ever get around to booking it!).

Seren, industrial strength coffee and IV drip being set up for you right now.

I've drunk just about everything in sight today.  Luckily there was no alcohol within reach so I have stuck to water, juice, tea and coffee.  I estimate about 4 litres in total and I'm still thirsty
