Headed to Iceland tomorrow for birthday treat. Having purchased thermals, coat that keeps you warm to -40, new walking boots etc, they're experiencing the tail of that Caribbean front that's moving up from the south so not only am I unlikely to see the northern lights, I'm going to be significantly overdressed... gah...

If I died and went straight to hell it would take me at least a week to realise I wasn't at work anymore.

    Can I hope that it is a happy retirement?

    It is indeed wonderful. I have been retired for three years and I HAVEN'T done the gardening, and I HAVEN'T taken up a new hobby and I HAVEN'T taken on a new occupation and I HAVEN'T found myself "busier than when I was working" and I haven't regretted a moment of it.
    Just once I woke up thinking "Shit I haven't ordered the allan keys" but that was it.

    It's taken all of the three...

    ..... years to stop fingering people's windowcills and front doors but some things take time.

    You are a full time grandad.
    I hope that your retirement is as happy as mine is right now.

    Earth is too... earthy; fire too lurid and water seems dull compared to air.

    You've given it to us! Except our plumber has made it worse! Fortunately he hasn't charged us but we've now got to find someone else.

Feeling very stressed and in a rut. Deadlines are looming and I've allowed depression to get the better of me... urgh :/

    I always find the best way to deal with deadlines is to aim to get stuff done well in advance if possible. Saves a lot of hassle later on. Not always practical, know.

    If I hadn't let depression get in the way, that's what I usually do - get the bulk done first :/

Does anyone know any good relaxing techniques? I've got a hospital appointment next week that I'm getting anxious about

    Breathing exercise. Just concentrate on the rhythm of your breathing.

    ^^^^ This. Breathe in for a slow count of 4, hold for 4, out for 4. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. And best of luck with the hospital.

    Breath is very important. You can add magnesium and the 'Rescue' from Bachs flowers

    I'm not bothered by the sexuality of my ice cream. Perhaps I'm bicesexual...

Heard back today from the graduate scheme - unsuccessful.. ah well. Hopefully I can find something else around the corner :)

    I'm hoping so :) thank you, it's kind of the way I'm thinking - missing out on this opportunity for a better one would be brilliant. Looked up a few new opportunities today, and I should hopefully apply to them over the next few days x

Apparently I've got to write Christmas cards. I had hoped to get away with it this year...

    It's the writing to which I object, rather than whether it's Yule or Christmas.

    I believe there's a postal strike next week - so it's too late to send any cards now. You can legitimately lay down your pen
