I don't mind assembling flat-pack. It's one of those things that I find oddly therapeutic.

Besides, it's like a cheat mode vs ye olden days of actually having to build things or design furniture in workshops and build everything from scratch without a handy instruction sheet!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I got more drugs and changed a watch band to a summer friendly Nato, really bored of being out of service now.

Speaking of
TODAY my bike chain snapped about 10 miles away from home, I didnt travel with my wallet, still I found out I can get it in the back of my mums car. (After taking of the wheels)
Also
My brother went to Spain, caught Covid along with my nephew that also went over there.
I mean, bloody hell, I know some people are desperate to get away for a bit, I thought they where smarter than that

Today they offered me a full job, its less money (about a pound less PH) think its less hours (Might of misheard), more things to do, but with more perks.
The major problem im having is there is no banter between the staff, know its not a very mentally stimulating job so that might be a problem, other staff say its "Hard work" im finding it easy

Had to turn the offer down as the pay was considerably less (About £1.20), same with the hours, not really worth it to me
