One thing I love about spring

The experience of having a bath becomes pleasant again. Having a bath would seem to be a very simple event. However, in the winter season it has to be done with military precision. Even with the central heating set to full whack you have to be conscious of the water temperature to avoid the freeze-thaw effect once you get out of the tub. Drying off venomously, wrapping up sharpish and, on the most chilling days, diving for the sanctuary of the bed covers.

None of that for the next eight or nine months. Relaxation all the way.

This is Ddot, enjoying the little things in life.

Would you admit to taking "sickies" on National TV?

An intriguing news clip appeared on the BBC today. In celebration of Easter Monday the Beep thought it would be a good idea to do a piece on pulling "sickies". What interests me is the couple of young women they had confess to feigning the occasional illness.

I can't believe it is a stroke of genius under the guise that if they reveal their sin in front of the nation then there is no chance they would stupid enough to pull the stunt again.

A couple of line managers will be keeping their eye out one reckons.

Every Cynic's Dream

I do love April 1st. The one day of the year where natural mistrust gets frequently rewarded.
Thankfully it is only once a year.
