Why do hurricanes get a name? Does my head in.

I don't remember Tsunami Colin, Drought Mabel, Heatwave Bill or Ice Age Susan ever getting a mention

Leaving a job I love purely so I can have weekends off. But it's because my sons at school all week and then I work 12-15 hours on a Saturday so it's justified. I wouldnt do it for anyone else!

The Guardian and the Jeremy Corbyn supporters and far left men children who think that swearing and personnal insults are a good subsitute for reasoned grown up argument... Far left communists internet warriors who find Corbyn likeable, with his stance against anybody who governs, but it seems like most of his followers are loathsome. This belief that everybody should see the world there way, and those that don't are either stupid, deceived, or dishonest. Perhaps the world could be a better place, but believing everyone else is stupid seems like a bad start..

Marksies have had a Christmas tree up in the shops since beginning of September.

Absolutely ridiculous.

Depression.

Just when you think it's been beaten after a few years you feel it slowly taking over again :(

People are buying christmas stuff now though. It's kind of a chicken and egg situation, do people buy it because it's for sale, or is it for sale because people will buy it.

Sorry to hear that mate, depression is an absolute bastard, I've lost someone I cared a great deal about to depression recently.

But you've come through it before & you can again, you know the warning signs & can get the help you need to kick that goddamn disease in its stupid face.
