What is Everyone Up To?

AndyGT Member Posts: 387 Pioneering
Hello One and All.  How is everyone doing on this Saturday.  The weather where I am is pleasant.  At least it is dry.  What are you going to be doing with your day?  My main focus will be watching the England Rugby game against Tonga later (other Rugby games are available).  I could type for ages on this subject but I don’t want to bore some people.   So what will you be doing? Rugby or otherwise, 🙂

    Hi Andy, it is nice to see you :)

    I am about to go out to a garden centre to look at the Christmas things and maybe come home with some treats :yum: 

    I hope you enjoy the rugby game.

    I was waiting for the man to come and look at my guttering.
    He arranged to come at 10o'clock but has not arrived.
    I wish people would not say they will come and then turn up.
    I don't know what to do today now. Afraid I don't like Rugby.

    Hi @AndyGT :) It's good to hear from you.

    It sounds as though you're set to have a nice and relaxing Saturday afternoon. It's dry where I am too, but the sky looks pretty threatening!

    What's your prediction for the England game later on? 

    I'm working today (obviously!), but will probably find something to watch on TV once I've finished. I've also been working on a paint by numbers for the past few days, which I've been really enjoying. I hadn't done one in years, but had it in my head so thought I'd give it a go.

    I understand what you mean @easy, don't worry :) Yes, it's definitely really annoying when people say they'll turn up at a certain time and then don't, especially when it's to get work done. Have you been able to get in touch with him to ask whether he's still planning on coming today? 

    Are there any other errands you need to complete? If not, I'd say it's a good opportunity to relax and take some time to yourself. Perhaps you could watch a film on TV, or do a hobby that you enjoy?

    Managed to cut the lawn for the last time before Spring and take my little dog for a walk before the heavens opened and it has not stopped raining since. One good thing it stops the fireworks. I wonder how many night we will have them for?

    Hi Tori _Scope. In fact hello everyone.  I did expect an England win.  However I didn't expect that score.  Watching the game, 2 things sprang to mind. 1. They will gave to play better and tidy up a few things when they play Australia on the 13th.  However they have a week to tighten up.
    2. Also, the problem teams like Tonga, Samoa or any of the Pacific Islands teams.  They produce some world class players but then lose them to play for England, Australia or New Zealand.  I guess that is where the money is.  Sad but understandable.

    I recently had a similar thing @easy. I ended up phoning six builders and only two turned up. One gave me a price for a holiday for two in the Bahamas and the other gave me a sensible price, so I engaged him and job done. I must admit I finished it off but still it was a result. 

    I think builders are busy and wre cherry picking jobs at the moment. No excuse for not even looking though, just plain rude.  😡

    If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.
