Yep, you're all coming to Weardale aren't you ;) We're known as Weardalians here but don't let that put you off.

I agree. However, we will have to make sure you get some when we meet up in Manchester at the DW Convention. :D

Crazy Morning.
Picked up a paper on the way into work only to read that the main project I've been working on has been shelved.
The article was a bit vague and seemed to be making a lot out of a few statements so basically confused the hell out of me as I'd only been talking to the clients yesterday.
Got into the office to an email saying keep going with the work but theirs a cloud of confusion and uncertainty descended.
I work remotely from a Dublin office while most are in Cork so I'm not sure what the general feeling or atmosphere is but this project generally took up about 60-80% of my work so no clue as to where i'll stand if the project goes.
Fun times. I'd only signed a new contract a month ago.

Oh sh!t, Pip.

Sorry to hear that. Any chance of other projects raising their heads?

Still not sure if this one is gone yet to be honest. And theres a few things in the pipeline that should come my way but its not 100% on a lot of them yet.
April on should be very busy for me but I don't know yet.
Waiting on a definitive feedback from the powers that be .

So sorry Pip. That's got to be frustrating and confusing. I hope things work out.

:lol: Chilli! If I have to, I can try making it.

Janet, we'll be in York. Is that close? Otherwise, I'll make sure to have some with Penfold while we're in Manchester. :D

Pip, hoping for a positive outcome.

Pip - sorry to hear about the job and hope it turns out OK for you. I'd be inclined to just keep going and collecting the salary cheques.
Susanne - you'll be in York? You'll enjoy that - great little city! Make sure you have comfy walking shoes. It's a goodly hike from here (about 100 miles). I might be persuaded to join you there :think:

Well I have a contract for at least 6 months so barring a big downturn I should have that long at least. :D

I feel like it could be a busy day. Got to take H to a friends for a couple of hours this afternoon, Got some new chilli stickers for the camper....just got to think where to put them! Shopping to do if we want to eat this evening :roll: Some gardening to finish, the shed could do with a major tidy up, and I may be required to pick up one of D's mate this morning who live a few miles away so he and D can catch up. Not quite sure how it's all going to fit in. :lol:
