I've been told they'll review when I can get off furlough by the end of this month.

Furlough was great for a week and for the odd day it's been decent but I'm glad to be working again. I'm actually on less money now than when I was on furlough as I've gone back on slightly reduced hours but I really don't mind. Not working just completely killed my motivation.

Love winning an argument with a Vegan. Got into a conversation about meat as my uncle works for a butchers and how black pudding was a superfood. They were like “I’ve never heard so much rubbish” and I was like it’s not me saying it, it is actually a superfood so went on to explain how much iron is in it (they were like how can it be a superfood, it’s blood...).

Then they started saying why don’t you just eat dark green vegetables for iron. A quick google shows that per 100g or broccoli there’s about 0.7mg iron, per 100g of black pudding there’s about 6.4mg of iron...so f*** off vegan <laugh>

I don’t actually have anything against anyone who wants to be vegan, and I’m pescatarian a lot of the time, but it pissed me off the ones who think they’re above everyone else and know it all.

Bloody love Lorne sausage! My uncle is sending me some, pretty hard to find it in the Midlands.

Oh and apparently we shouldn't have dairy because it gives us cancer too...

The route we used to take up to the in-law's took us past the Green Welly at Tyndrum which does amazing breakfast rolls. I'm pretty sure we can't get Lorne sausage here but I make sure to eat plenty of it when I'm in Scotland <laugh>.

It's good stuff as well, I've had that and the protein box before. Delivery is about £6 I think but if you get a few bits then definitely makes it decent value.

Stamp duty holiday: no duty paid up to £500k. My partner and I are looking to move and this should hopefully save us about £6k. <diva>

I'm not normally a tory voter but it has to be said that Rishi Sunak has done a brilliant job with his handling of the coronavirus. The economic support packages he initially put in place and his announcements today have by far exceeded my expectations.

Probably like those intentionally bad memes they put out, draw more attention to it for further spread

It's been so long since MiniOT left the house, she forgot which direction the centre of town is.

I saw her stand out the front of the house and had to bring up Google Maps <laugh>

Cars are f***ing s***. I've had to shell out several hundred this year on my 57 plate Mondeo that cost me £1000 <laugh>. Hopefully that means I'll get another few years out of it providing nothing else goes wrong.

My other car is a 61 plate Laguna <laugh> I bought back in 2017. I crashed that twice which cost me about £1200 and then the electronic handbrake got stuck which cost about another £700. Other problems included snapped coil springs, the front nearside tyre constantly going flat and stuck calipers.

However, I will always continue to buy cheaper second hand cars as I can afford a couple of big expenses a year. My garage also has a 0% interest payment scheme so I just use that. I couldn't afford to chuck £300-£400 a month at a car on finance though.
