    GOTITINGOTITINGOTITINYAY!!!

    I am shit at tax returns and in fact at life admin in general. This is not quite my latest submission but pretty darn close.

    Got a mystery flat. I couldn't find a hole but tube wouldn't hold air. Had patches but no spare tube on me. Decided I couldn't be arsed to replace a flat tube and tyre so I'd just wheel the bike on the back wheel into work. Regretted it all the way, but never quite enough to stop and take the wheel off to replace the tyre.

    Our office is on Portman Square and as a "resident" the company has a few keys which are kept on reception for employees to use during the day. It is a nice perk on a sunny day.

    I was convinced the market was overcooked about 2002 using the same arguments (apart from Brexit).

    What I've seen since, including through the GFC, has convinced me the government will devalue the pound rather than let nominal property values fall too far.

    I have often envisioned something similar, only it would spray blood. Hopefully triggering the thought sequence "ohgodthere'sbloodohgodwhodidIhitohgodI'­mintheshitohg..eh..oh sweet relief I didn't kill anyone, I never want to feel like that again, I'm giving those fucking cyclists a wide berth now"

    Any vegans in N15 could make use of a carton of oat milk and almond milk? They came in a healthy food hamper but we just won't use them.

    (Hamper also had a jar of aquafaba mayo but I'm going to try that!)

    Bit disrupted by Christmas, plus the guys doing the framing worked from an older version of the plan and had to come back and fix it which seems to have thrown the whole schedule out of whack. We've got the framing, boarding, insulation, roof felt and battons in so basically warm and mostly watertight, stairs are in and the first fix is done for plumbing and electrics, but no slates yet so not fully weatherproof and not secure.

    We are going to try and reboot next week and nail DJ down to a list of what needs to happen in what order, and what part of that we need to arrange ourselves when and with who.

    They did recommend a window firm but that's one of the ones that just aren't getting back to us :( hopefully will all start moving again next week.

    When the stairs went in, it felt like one of those dreams where you find an extra room in your house only for real!

    Probably not after wood but if your guy does aluminium I'd be interested. We went with Dan James for the loft in the end, banner is fluttering outside as we speak.

    That would be great thank you. Can you drop me a PM?

    I pulled some recs off Harringay Online but not having much joy - either don't do aluminium or just never call back.
