        Back to reality after a week off work.

        Sat & Sun of the bank holiday weekend, we headed to north Clare for Mrs Lao Lao's best friends 40th. A dozen of us in a huge rented house. The birthday girls boyfriend owns a food business so brought half of his stock with him. We ate and drank like kings for the two days.

        From there, it was on to Cavan for a two day wedding in Virginia Park Lodge, where we yet again ate and drank like kings for two days.

        Back in Dublin for a brief spell before heading south to Monart for a few days. I only got out of my robe for dinner on both days, full on Rancho Relaxo for the entire time.

        On the 1st evening, we ate in the bar which is decent grub and a wine list which isn't too adventurous but is priced very well (most expensive bottle is €40 and everything seemed to be around double off sales price which is fair enough). Second day we ate in the main restaurant which had a slight old school/country feel to it (We were given a sorbet in between starter and mains and each main came with a side bowl of mash and veg). On the flip side, both starters (pumpkin ravioli and pork belly) and both mains (sea bass and fillet of beef) were extremely well cooked plus 2014 Meerlust was on the restaurant wine list for 70 quid a bottle - Keep it old school and country I reckon!! The restaurant wine list was very good. All the bar wines were on it (at the same price) and it went right up to 1989 Mouton Rothschild for a mere 1500 quid a bottle so something for everyone's budget.

        Back in Dublin now and have just made out the weekly food shopping list. Feels a very long time since I had to plan what to eat rather than just having it served up to me!

              Ah absolutely. They really should have made the end result the raison d'être for the big job. Dumbest move ever otherwise.

                I made a solid pitch for Wednesday & Friday as the office days, but Monday & Wednesday was a runaway winner.
                I suppose the advantage of Monday is that public holidays mean we are off for about 8 of them anyway in any year.
                Postponed for a few weeks, maybe til January.
                Wow, people actually chose Monday to be in the office. Surely the nut worst day to be there. The bank holiday thing isn't enough to give it any advantage IMO

                    We've got to go in 2 days a week, which we can choose on a weekly basis, as long as no more than 4 of us are in at any time (team of 8), and monday is my preferred day and quite a popular day, although busiest days in the office are Tuesday and Thursday

                      I have noticed a lot of people using the word "yous" lately and now see businesses using it. Is it actually a real word?

                              I was involved in a small tip in a car about 20 years ago that was a quite complicated scenario to assign fault and settle after all the Dubs involved in a 5MPH tip were claiming they had whiplash and all the usual bollocks.
                              To cut a long story short it one of the parties was a batshit cray cray woman who had been driving a very expensive BMW and spoke in a very polished accent. The case was being heard by Justice Pat McCartan who quickly figured out that her story of what had happened was an absolute fairytale that didn't stand up to the slightest scrutiny, after my barrister had her contradict herself a couple of times she started to get flustered and angry, Pat very judiciously stopped the barrister tried to help her find a way to dig out of the hole she was digging for herself. Instead of taking the help she got even more angry as her face went puce the posh tones evaporated and she roared straight at Pat in the broadest Dublin scanger accent "I'm telling Youse what I seen".
                              The barrister was struggling hard not to laugh couldn't make eye contact with Pat who was in shock, I pinched myself till I drew blood to keep from roaring laughing.

                                      SP proving hes down and hip . Cray Cray ? My niece puts that in her texts. Mainly talking about her mudder.

                                      I'm from Drimnagh originally and the amount of different accents when I was growing up was cray cray . Obviously before the Polish invasion . We had Offaly neighbours who said Shag off a LOT shag this , shagging shag . Cracked me up. . I'd say a lot of culchies settled in the D12 area back then.

                                        I'd say buddy is the word most frequently used in Dublin Creches (after mudderojaysus) . I hate it when they call kids buddy . It's like they are covering something up. Like when a norfsider says hello buddy , nidge style . I dont trust anyone who says buddy .


                                        I think Laz called my son Buddy . GFYL

                                            I found out today that guys is no longer considered to be sexist anymore as an email opener. Will be glad to see the back hi folks which which makes you sound like a knob or hi all which sounds like bad news.

                                            Saying hi goys however is still banned I presume.

                                                Might not be sexist but I’d check to make sure it’s not transphobic
                                                pretty distressing post considering it was international pronouns day only 2 weeks ago

                                                    Reading The Hunger Games as the nighttime read at the moment and its surprisingly not awful. Very readable. I do realise the target audience of readers is a teen girl, but maybe the same could be said about Harry Potter being aimed at kids.

                                                            I wouldn't be so sure that hi guys is actually fine again. It might just be a trap to catch the more gullible male emailers. 'Hi everyone' is where I've gone in life. A bit silly, but there we go.

I hate it when they call kids buddy . It's like they are covering something up. Like when a norfsider says hello buddy , nidge style . I dont trust anyone who says buddy .

Thankfully I have no woke person I know that I can ask. My conclusion was that it's grand.

Wanted to type "that would be lovely". I use the swipe method of texting. Let's just say it's quite easy to type "lonely" instead of "lovely" that way.

To see what the pure comic book form can be. Saga is gorgeous and brilliant. The Sandman also, by a young Neil Gaiman. Actually maybe The Sandman first.
