    Having a bit of a moment. Deep fried some strips of chicken breast in a dredge of egg/flour/salt/shawarma mix (fairly old that I pre-made but wasn't sure what to do with - black pepper/cinnamon/Aleppo pepper/coriander/cumin/little turmeric), popped them in a toasted bun lined with mayo and some crisp iceberg.

    Also made some chips and triple deep fried those.

    And I cooked some corn and shallow fried that (after it had cooked, I'm not a monster) in butter.

    I can feel some kind of heart failure coming on but 100% worth it.

    @aggi and @hoefla
    Thanks both - guess it didn't save - not to worry. Weird as it made a camera shutter noise and then an icon saying 'screenshot' appeared bottom right. Will remember Windows + Shift + S / Windows + printscreen for the future.

    Not a big windows user: If screenshots aren't in the 'Pictures' folder by default, where are they? I just hit printscreen (i think - mac keyboard) and had a sound saying an image was captured but I can't find it. Where would it be? I can't seem to paste anything into Paint

    ooh - yes, oven chat. Our oven (80cm wide smeg thing left here by previous owners - electric with a gas hob) recently started taking about 5-10 minutes of fiddling to get the light to come on / get hot.

    The interior light comes on but the tiny exterior light next to the dial doesn't appear until much fiddling/banging takes place, so consequently doesn't get hot. Sometimes even when it's on it fickers on and off quickly. Is there an easy fix? We're loosely trying to do a kitchen but not sure it'll be sorted before Christmas at this rate and I'll probably do murder if I can't roast the fuck out of some shit over winter.

    My oldest client just gave us the flick. Can't justify cost blah. We've actually had a really busy month which has helped get us back on track a bit but we've had these guys on a monthly retainer since 2016 which, although relatively small, did a lot for cash flow and sleeping well. We're doing another project for another department of theirs worth 3 months and another one in December for the same but lower margins as more work involved. First world probs etc
