      It seems there's a mortgage lending place that specialises in only (pretty much) lending to public sector workers. Presumably quite a decent business as the risk must be low. You'd wonder why the other banks have let them get away with claiming that niche. The big thing they do is they use their annual flexibility in exemptions to lend to public sector at two points up their salary scale - giving them a nice little boost on everyone else.

        Younger brother (48) just announced that he's getting married for the second time. No idea why he'd be bothered.

          The best thing about WFH is the mini breaks:
          - Do some dinner prep.
          - Laundry
          - Quickie.
          - Hoover and tidy.
          - Kid pickup and drop offs.
          - Bit of golf chipping out the back.
          - Water plants.
          - Mow lawn.
          - Mini workout.
          - Washing up.
          - Overdue phone calls with friends and relations.
          - Nap in front of screen.

          I could go on. Mad what you can achieve in 15 or 20 min. Can get loads done during lunch break too.

          In office it's difficult to get out of work head for a 'break' but getting off the chair and away from the screen for a while during the day is essential.

          One thing I'm strict on is minimal leisure screen time during work hours. Time can slip away very dangerously.

          May not sound it, but I have been super productive with work stuff since I started WFH.

            Who are they Hitch, brother is currently going through the process on his second house but think he is using TSB due to cashback or something, i would be weighing up the APRs myself.

              One aspect that I like about going back into the office is simply changing the physical geography of my life. I like going places, seeing things, meeting people - it's stimulating. So I can pop out of work, nip up to town and do stuff, which in itself is beneficial to my wellbeing imo.

              I just don't think being stuck in your own house for pretty much all day, every day is desirable long-term and could lead to bad psychological effects. We're not wired that way as a species.

              Hotspur can explain why this is nonsense.

                    Yeah probably depends on peoples situation but I do this during working from home, and go for a drink in the park. It is very important to do. Our office isn't in town so I get more of a chance to do things around town now since I live there. Definitely should be getting out of the home if you're going to be there long term. Also when the pandemic isn't around people tend to do a lot of social stuff in the evenings so it will be easier.

                        Mia starts work tomorrow supermacs €8.80 per hour and 12-7pm next three days. I think that's fantastic money for a girl who practically just turned 16. She won't know herself from getting an odd 20 quid here and there to checking her acc and seeing prob 150 min every week.

                        Delighted for her, great to get them working young. Weird looking at her in the uniform, like she grew up overnight!

                          That's great Michelle, for personal experience and also the auld CV down the line.
                          ​I'd say half my graduating year in college didn't ever have a job, never mind relevent work experience and they were in for some shock when it came to job application time at 21/22 years old.

                              This sums up my feelings on Oz exactly. I headed out there first in 1999 for a months holiday and then head a few years later taking the long way there via Asia for the working holiday visa.

                              Am disappointed I haven't got back since but with in-laws living over there, we may get back sooner rather than later.

                                I’’m on team duke. Can’t wait to get back into the office a few days a week to get a nice lunch out and have a bit of chat with my coworkers.

                                As for productivity when I’m having a very focused day work from home is much better but on a day when I’m less pushed I am going to eat a lovely dinner but a lot of work is going to be left till the next day.

                                Days when I am not 100% on the noise and atmosphere in the office compensated for the lower motivation. I can’t imagine I’m alone on having good and bad days motivation wise.

                                    Had an uncannily timely Joycean moment this evening after swimming out at Monkstown when I'm drying off there was a young wan changing beside me more or less gives up on the towel and leans forward bending right over as she struggles for like a minute to get the filmiest knickers imaginable on, then when she's dressed she gives me a knowing smile. Maybe she's a fan of the book and was channelling her inner Gertie McDowell in celebration of the day thats in it and while I didn't soil myself as the Leopold Bloom did when Gertie put on a show for him on Sandymount strand the moment will make a refreshing new deposit in the oul wank bank

                                      I was starting to think I was becoming a bit agoraphobic and would struggle to get out again at all.

                                      Last weekend I got to go down to Leitrim for a day and it was great the first time I've been anywhere at all this year.
                                      Then this evening I got a bit of inspiration about a work thing I'd been struggling with and could only try out in the office so I broke the routine and drove in late, it worked. Ended up going out for a swim and had a stroll in town grabbed a burger and it felt great to be out and about. City felt good buzzy but not too busy or at all messy.

                                                In fairness my experience is that they deliver everything except the pizza ovens in fairly standard time. Maybe a week or so.

                                                How much of a wanker though would you need to be to buy this?

                                                        Can't beat a nice dosa, its odd that more Indian restaurants don't do them.

                                                        Hiring the van @ 600 for 50 meals or 1K for a 3 hour service of 100 meals sounds like great value.

                                                        The location link on their site doesn't work, where are they parked in Dublin?

                                                          Sounds great.

                                                          Cricket can get you a long way. Whenever I make a new work contact with an Indian person, I make sure to bring up a cricket reference straight away. If they get it and are clearly a cricket fan, then you've got a friend for life.

                                                                Hiring the van @ 600 for 50 meals or 1K for a 3 hour service of 100 meals sounds like great value.

This one restaurant was open til the wee hours because it was the only place in the city where you could watch cricket. If a big match was on it would be hopping at 4am on a Tuesday and I'd be the only white person in there.

When I took the first test that failed a whopping 20+ years ago it seemed to be obsessed with hills. Hill parking, hill stopping, reversing back around a hill. While that all seems more or less gone now in favour of roundaboutapolooza. Would that be about right? The first test was in the UK also, so maybe that accounts for some of the differences.

This current generation are really being brought up to honour, love, and never harm, the humble bee in a way in which we were thought to honour, love, and never harm, the spider. Its great, the bee seems great, lovely chap. But what about the poor spider that used to be top of the insect-care pyramid. Who's thinking about the spider? It just shows how fragile your place in the ecosystem can be. One minute top of the walk, the next a mere spider. Some lessons there for any bees in the audience. Always put a bit of honey aside, you never know what might happen.

                                                                                                        That has always been a possibility even under the old structure. You could have had a situation where a group was 4-4-1-1 going into the last game, with the two teams on 4 points playing each other.
                                                                                                        And the 2-2 Scandinavian draw in 2004 which froze out Italy on head to head was an example of a mutually beneficial outcome, albeit is was a fairly played game.
                                                                                                        But it's definitely more of a possibility now with four 3rd placed teams qualifying, and an advantage for teams who play in the groups which are last to finish.

                                                                                                                    As for productivity when I’m having a very focused day work from home is much better but on a day when I’m less pushed I am going to eat a lovely dinner but a lot of work is going to be left till the next day.

                                                                                                                    Days when I am not 100% on the noise and atmosphere in the office compensated for the lower motivation. I can’t imagine I’m alone on having good and bad days motivation wise.
                                                                                                                    I think the nature of your job and personality is important in this debate.

                                                                                                                    I'm an extrovert and on down days I could go missing and have a lack of productivity like you say Richie. However, my job doesn't allow that as I have clients and colleagues on my case looking for things to be done which means that even on relatively unproductive days I get at least some shit done and it keeps me from having a complete write-off of a day. Like today is a day when I've found time for posting on IPB and a two hour lunch break which means I'm not exactly productive and yet I've had three client meetings and I'll do at least 6 billable hours which is all that really matters in my game....If I was in your sort of role and having to bring the motivation each day myself then I could see WFH being a challenge alright.

                                                                                                                    Now I know other folk who are more introverted (a few actuarial types for example) and they are finding the WFH just more suitable to their jobs. Less distractions and can sit looking at spreadsheets and running models to their hearts content. And not having to actually interact with clients as much and make small talk is a gift for them. I'd say a few of them are dreading a return to the office.

                                                                                                                      Will genuinely never buy one again. Probably never a petrol car either.

I haven't upgraded my car as planned last year and I'll probably wait until next year now. Looking forward to seeing what second hand electric cars will be in my price range. Won't go over 20-25k as I just can't get my head into the space for spending big money on a car* to transport me around. Happily spunking money on my house though at the minute!!

Co-com on RTE match at the moment seems quite good for a start (hopefully i dont bbv her whoever she is)
