• I’ve had several design appointments today, I haven’t made a hob decision but no one suggested this, as it would have been a decider from a space point of view.
    Though I also didn’t know that you didn’t have to have ducting extractors these days either 🙂

  • I paid 1/4 of my salary to my parents as soon as I started earning at 18.

  • Sardina is lovely

  • yes they can develop. Rather than stretching I’d be inclined to do some strengthening exercises but feel free to take further advice on that!
    When I was having issues I pointed out to the physio that essentially when riding my feet were in permanent flexion/stretch anyway- which was potentially aggravating. Interestingly my feet still don’t bend…[Read more]

  • what causes it I think depends on the person, I have some hypermobile bits and some stiff bits, my ankles don’t have a lot of flexibility compared to my knees and hips, particularly on my left hand side which is generally a bit screwy.

    We are a small team of 5- me and a colleague at the bottomed, the 2 managers then their boss who is responsible overall for the team. My colleague leaves in 2 weeks as he’s had…[Read more]

  • It would be easy enough to explain – I recently moved 25-30 miles away from the office so could potentially use that as my reason for leaving. Ets- I do completely understand where you’re coming from though! Usually I will get on with everyone and not let personal clashes cause trouble but we work very closely together and he seems determined to…[Read more]

  • I am so close to walking out of my job. I have a manager who consistently tries to throw me under the bus, ignores or over-rides any suggestions i make and persistently tries to catch me out (and fails as I’m doing nothing wrong!). I can’t take any more of it. Is it a really really bad idea to just take a temp role until I find something longer…[Read more]
