    salmonbuddie got a reaction from faraway saint in 4 Day Week   
    I've been working a 4 day week for a good few years now, 0730-1715 M-T. Best thing ever and if I need to work on a F/S/S I get double time.

    Working from home was the icing on the cake, saves me a 45 min drive each way.

    Next step in the process is getting the total hours worked reduced but since I've got less than 2 years to retirement, I suspect I won't see it happen before I'm done.

    As much as I am not a Nicola fan there are big differences here to Boris that the Tory media will try and skip over .
    Boris Johnson has been called to resign as he lied to parliament not because he had a birthday cake.
    Nicola claims to have slipped up.
    If Boris had put his hands up and been honest he would have broken covid rules but not ministerial code. 
    The reason he needs to go is breaking ministerial code not the parties.

    If Robinson takes us down he has to go. 
    If we survive I think he will get the chance to build his own team, we've made our bed or rather the board have choosing him so strap yourself in this could get very scary... 
    Personally I've just never felt he was the right fit for us just don't feel it with him..  Had the same feeling with Oran Kearney Alan Stubbs Alex Rae Ian Murray and Davy Hay back in the day... 
    Of the candidates that were mentioned my only choice was Jack Ross he said no I believe my next choice would have been Stephen McGinn with a experienced coach like Danny Lennon to help him out

    Thankfully our season will never be defined by results against Celtic/Sevco

    Sadly I’ve come to expect nothing from these games despite other teams certainly at least giving it a go against them

    I don’t mind missing top six either

    I’m more concerned about 8 defeats in 9 ?

    We seem to have completely lost our way

    I don’t believe we will finish lower than 10th probably 8th is my guess

    Working where I do this type of stuff is endemic. A few years back we were buying an off the shelf ultra high pressure washer and spec'd stainless steel nozzles in lieu of standard carbon steel. The QA Engineer decided that this change meant that we would need a full engineering report on the effects of the changesbon the original design of the unit. Until I pointed out that we didn't have anyone qualified to do that and that essentially the change was akin to speccing alloys on a Ford Fiesta instead of standard. In fairness, he backed off at that point...

    I should add, technically, you are correct, but I support someone with COPD and another with severe asthma, and as such, exclusions apply.

    Nope
    Guidelines for care staff in homes and centres are different and very clear.

    She came in to work.

    I was the one duty bound to send her home.

    I trust my team. No chancing of the arm here I can assure you.

    I'm keeping our daycare centre open on a wing and a prayer.

    Despite sticking to reduced numbers and maintaining a social distancing and mask wearing indoors policy, I have 1 of my team off with COVID.
    He tested negative and came into work but had to be sent home after a couple of hours.
    His eyes were rolling and he simply wasn't fit for work.
    His partner is as bad.

    Another of my team is off self isolating for 10 days as her partner tested positive and is very unwell.

    My volunteer admin worker is off as a close contact.

    Someone who attends our centre is unwell with COVID. His wife is in hospital with it.

    What I am seeing first hand would strongly suggest this is far from a harmless cold and far from over.

    Sitting where we are in the league with a game in hand on a number of clubs might we top off Tony’s time with us by being in the Top 6 when he retires? Now that would be something. A lot to play for however.
