Does anyone else get messed around at work? I seem to have a face that attracts it, maybe because I am an easy going guy but maybe they just like to take the piss and are waiting to see how long it will be before I loose the plot and start killing folks there who knows.

I have gone from a start time in the afternoon to a morning start time again after being informed “due to a reshuffle your start time doesn’t exist anymore” I mean don’t they realise what this means? I will have to come home in the early evening just like a normal person and see the Wife and kids SEVEN DAYS A WEEK!!! My god the secret to a happy marriage has been only saving that horror for the weekends before so now I will have to listen to the drivel that teenage girls and wives spout on a daily basis! Still could be worse I suppose…I don’t know how yet but I will find something to take solace in as the day goes by.

Time to update the Landy Project costs as its been a while. All receipts were put in a pile so I wouldn’t lose track and I finally got around to totting up what I had sold off of the project and for how much.

I want the costing list to be a true projection of how much money I have into it. What I mean to say is how much of my hard earned cash out of my own pocket so I seeing as I have put back into every penny the project has generated I have classed this as a credit because I didn’t have to earn it (apart from putting a few adverts up but that doesn’t class as work in my book).

The amazing thing is the Landy has given me more money back than I paid for it to start with and I have the thing sat on my driveway! I know that’s a rare occurrence these days but its also left me feeling a bit smug!

So all in all the project costs are still looking good and my aim now is to get it roadworthy by the end of January, it was Christmas but with my new start time at work I don’t think that’s going to be possible.
