Questions for self employed people

Posted: 07/03/2013 at 21:40

I can't work for myself, but I work for a partnership, so all the top guys work for themselves having previously been employees of the partnership.

The biggest thing is that as soon as you become a partner, you become unemployed.  You trade in all your employment rights.  No sick pay.  No holiday pay.  No unfair dismissal.  The irony is that the best way to get rid of an underperforming employee is to make them a partner.  The day before they become a partner, they are entitled to something silly like 12 months pay on redundency.  The day afterwards, nothing.

I couldn't become self employed

That's a pretty impressive improvement Franny - 25%.  Well done.

Thanks Ecky.  Not sure how Moo is doing now, but he seems to be getting used to the idea of being tube fed late at night.  He woke up a bit last night but he seemed to settle when I went in.

Just worked out, I was 117kg on 18 December 2010.  That was 115 weeks ago.  On a loss of 30kg, thats 250g per week, including six months when I couldn't exercise and several periods of stagnation.  I reackon about half of those 119 weeks were going up. 

Just looking at the stats, I had 26 weeks of stagnation early on, then some loss, then 16 weeks of gradual gain (3kg), Then some loss.  Then another 14 weeks of gain (another 3 kg), and down from there.  So actually, I've lost 36kg in 56 weeks, just with a lot of going nowhere or slight gain.  Which is just over 500g per week.  I'm quite chuffed, and long may it continue.  If I can find my Norwich shirt from 1994, I might see how well it fits, as I think I will be able to get into it again.

Love you hun.  In other news, my weight is now down to 87kg, so 4.5kg off target.  Yay.  However, I have not done any serious exercise in about a week, and I am concerned that actually the weight I am losing is not fat, its muscle.  What chances? I seem to be losing a bit round my gut - if I hold it in, I can now do up a pair of 30" jeans, but that leaves little room on the legs.  Think I might end up with a more expensive pair that is thin waist but generous on the legs.  To the extent that 30" can be considered thin if it is accompanies by a bit of a muffin top...

For f@ck's sake.  This is a communal toilet.  If you are going to 'moult', please wipe rather then leaving your pubes on the toilet seat for the next guy to find.

Do we count husbands?

I'm quite happy to declare myself a child.    Mentally anyway.

My pics are all too big to load - don't know how to make them fit the size restrictions.  When I've tried editing they just end up even bigger


If you can email them over to me, I'm quite happy to play about with them.  The pictures, not the ladies.  Unless...

Saddle 'numbness'

Got rid of the gel cover fairly quickly.  It was pretty useless.

and not sliding off the saddle

That's why I made a slight cant backwards.  I kept slipping forwards.  Get cover probably didn't help.
