Progress

I may have been a little premature yesterday. Last night we were due to eat some of the burgers left over from the barbecue. We’d discussed it the night before and G wasn’t going to eat meat, but implicit in what I said – implicit I tell you! – was that I would. So I went into the kitchen last night to see G removing veggie burgers from the grill and there was no beef in sight! I stammered out “but… but… I thought I was having a beef burger…” and G looked at me blankly and reminded me about not wanting to fall off the veggie wagon too rapidly to which I said “but I’ve always been a carnivore”. And then I ate my veggie burger and it was very nice. I also know that I should be grateful that someone makes me my dinner and my lunches etc etc etc. It was just a shock. G has promised me beef burgers another evening though, so the cow did not die in vain. G did also offer to catch a moth that has been flying about recently and put it in my lunch, so that there was a bit of meat in it. I declined the kind offer.

My team is running about five weeks ahead of schedule at the moment, which is really good news. We are just beginning week 11 and have already reached the mid-way point in our target with about 16 weeks to go. I am just hoping that they don’t start to feel a bit worn out. Anyway, there progress to date has been marvellous and now it’s about keeping them on track. We have achieved far more than I would have expected by this point, so I’m really impressed with that they have done.

Still trying to figure out what job you do.....

Oh, and if G cooks, then G gets to choose the food!

But then again I cook, yet Mrs K gets to choose... I think I am doing something wrong somewhere?

Kahless - I am not sure you'd ever guess. It's quite interesting work though.

G is merely my slave and doesn't get to make decisions!

One day you will go a phone call. The phone will ring.
You will answer with
"Hello"
and the voice down the other end will say in Essex slang...
"So what is your job?"
And then you will know it is me!

Ooops; typo.

Go should have read get!

Kahless - I shall have to make sure that I start to screen my calls!

Perhaps I will have to answer any calls with my finest Radio 4 voice just in case it is you.

Moths taste of chicken, or so I've been told.

LKSN - I am glad you explained how you know that piece of information. Maybe I should try one to confirm though...
