Fuckin' Weather

It's 30 fuckin degrees here on the vendee. Not a goddam cloud in the sky to break up the constant sunshine which is practically blinding me.

the only way I'm going to cool off is to crack open an ice cold lager and then jump in the sea for a surf.

 

:D Post a picture for the folks in the north!

Every time I look at the forecast it suggests the following week will at least be drier. And every fucking week it's not.

Yep, yesterday's BBC weather for Swansea was sunshine all day. It poured down. I would not have minded a shower here or there but it poured down.

Since I posted my last post the rain decided to rain more and the grey sky has got greyer.

With the greatest respect for all your many excellent posts on this forum, especially on things like the current inheritance thread, living in Wales and complaining about the rain is a bit like living in Death Valley and complaining it's a bit too warm.......

Today was my 'well sod this for a lark' day.

The weather has just been utter, utter crap for weeks. I'm making 20 quid some days. I've decided to punt out my CV and just see what's on the go as the British weather is a fickle, temperamental, shit boss to work under and, after about ten years of it, I think I've had enough.

 

What you gonna do sarge? Fireplace fitting, good time of year for it ;)

Yep.

However check it when we get a few days of the winter wind that blows down the lake at 50mph with an air temperature of about -10C and covers everything with ice, it'll cheer you up! Happens once every couple of years and really it's best not to go out of the door at all.

It's a good question. I'm not too sure really, might have to start a thread on it at some point.

Fireplaces can FRO. Never again.

 

It's a pickle.

I went from corporate in my 20s to outdoors in my 30s (in the UK and in sunnier climes), got to 42 and thought "fuck this for a game of soldiers", been bimbling about office jobs since. Miss the sunshine (when it happens) and the physical fitness, but not the rain and the aches that only at least one bottle of red can assuage. I watched guys in their 50s and even 60s fall to pieces and eventually struggle to stand up straight. Mind you, the white collar world presents its own problems - chiefly politics and wankers of every shade.

There is no definitive answer, I have concluded.

Great post, are you me?

I'm the wrong side of 35 now and I am really starting to feel it, I'm necking too many paracetamol and I have a feeling that my back is gearing up to fail me in a big way in the not too distant future so it's a bit of a worry.

When it's good, it's great but being so reliant on British weather really is popping down to the casino with your life savings. Trying to organise jobs around it is becoming a nightmare and standing in the pissing rain trying to dig a hole is bad for the soul. The weather is too shit too often.

That said, I remember my last office job and it was utterly hateful. Utterly. If I could find something that combined in and outdoor work, that would be nice but I'm very aware that's most likely a pipe-dream. 

I'll fire out the CV and see what's occurring. At least I mainly know what I won't do now, I suppose.

 

 

I'm not as funny as you...

 

Marquees? Mainly indoor cleaning and repair work and sales in the winter, putting the fuckers up in the summer? Don't expect to make any money though.

Self employed in an indoor, non-manual job?

That's very nice. 

I tell what wasn't nice. About 30 minute before that I was at the end of a 6 mile run in all that rain. 

Just yards from my car I slipped and my foot went sideways. 

Swellings gone down a bit but still hurts a lot today

Right foot:

Why are feet disgusting? To me they are, at least. Even most pretty ladies have horrible feet.

Your feet are nearly as disgusting as mine. Not as big though, I am Sasquatch in human form.
