Good Morning All, Bin day again, recycling this week with garden waste, so last night I spent a few hours cutting the estate. Still need to do the front but the bin is full.

Morning all. After a chaotic, albeit successful day yesterday, it's a day of not doing much at all (I think).

Sun loungers are in the garden, so will make the most of the fine weather.

You have just reminded me...I am suppose to be off next week. Forgot about that. Suppose to have been in Italy, Garda.......May still take the week off to spend with the family though.

Good morning all.....
Ditto - we were due to be leaving today for Garda and the Dolomites today putting in an alpine pass or five en route - a run out to the Forest of Dean will have to suffice

That's where I spent most of my childhood the Forest of Dean. . St Brievals to be exact.

Morning you lot. I think the hedge needs cutting. No chance of the council doing it at this point I fear.

Have a great day, all

Morning all, blimey Loz; Lowestoft is the sleepy fluff filled navel of the UK. It takes forever to get anywhere from there, are you sure that is where you want to end up?

Not sure what I’ll do today but it will involve seeing more than the study.

Have fun all...
Haha agreed mate , its sort of family orientated , the missus brother lives down there , and Kaz is fully retiring once we move , whilst i continue to finish and wind up affairs in Africa if i can eve get a flight out of here and avoid a double self isolation period. At least she will have company whilst im away and as most know im not adverse to clocking up a few Maserati miles attending events etc .

Morning all going to be another glorious day once the sun comes over , stay safe out there , appears there a glimmer on the horizon of things improving pinkies crossed and all that

Good morning everyone. It got too hot to work in my temporary office yesterday. I deliberately positioned myself in the conservatory at the start of the lockdown as the natural light would help me work. But yesterday got a bit much by 3pm and its only May. Just today to do, as I might be back in June.

Well its cloudy and looks like rain up north today. Mind you we could do with some. Rivers in Cumbria slowly drying up.

Morning, denizens of SportsMaserati. Started sunny, cloudy now, due to brighten up again later.

We're keeping our office in London closed until the end of June and planning for a far more home-oriented way of life after that. We'll need to keep some meeting space and likely there will be a number of people who simply prefer working in an office, but our future business as unusual will involve a much lower expectation of being in a traditional office. Suits me fine. I've been nomadic / home-based for years.

I think this will be the norm for many businesses, and all the better for it.
The challenge will be as churn in teams happens, maintaining (or even forging) a new team remotely is a challenge that most are ill prepared for. **** most leaders can't create a good team when everyone's in the office.
