Road works

October 6th, 2008 tj No comments

Is it too much to ask for the planning departments of Tameside Council and Manchester City Council to talk to each other?

There are two main bus routes I can use to get home from work.  Last week Manchester City Council opened a massive hole on one of them.  A hole that won’t be closed for at least 8 weeks (that in itself, on the run up to Xmas, is fucking mental).  So I started using the other bus.  Now Tameside have decided to start roadworks along that route.  So whichever way I choose to leave the city I get stuck in traffic.

Yeah, fucking rain.  It only seems to really bucket it down when I need to go out!  It was raining all the way into work and then as soon as I got off the bus it got about 10 times worse.

Ah well, I dried off eventually!

The common cold

September 29th, 2008 tj No comments

You would think in this day and age that ‘they’ would have come up with a cure for the common cold.  We can get into space, land on other planets, send data as light and do all manner of cool things, but the common cold still stops us dead in our tracks.

But I’m a man, I’ll soldier on through!
