I was happy to do it, they told me no 🤷‍♀️ 

Don't listen to it, who wants to be out there in the pouring rain pulling their boll, oh hang on.

We randomly decided to go to London today....I wouldn't be too disappointed about work being called off, it was a horrendous day!

You went to London and expected anything other than a horrendous day?

 

That’s just blown my mind more than the planet’s being lined up with the far corner pocket of the pool table!


But then my late dad used to say you have to go to London once every few years to remind your self why you don’t go!

Your late farther was correct, only go to London if you are being paid for it.

The last time I spent any time here I was laying land drains in Regent’s Park, horrible place but yes I was paid.

I did my time in London, worst part of it was how early you had to start at the yard to get to the job, the traffic jams to get to the job (A to Z on your lap) parking when you got there, cars parked under trees that belonged to no one, finding somewhere to go to the toilet, clients trying to get you to take their garden rubbish, the public who don’t give a fook about signs. 
I sound like Alan Partridge

It's the same in thamesmead where we work cars under trees no one paying attention to signs luckily enough we stay in thamesmead but that's London for you I suppose 🤷‍♂️

The money is good, but you earn it.

Look on the bright side, after a few years of that, everything is easy.
