My team leader's not in, her boss isn't in. Loads of people are on holiday. Friday afternoon, I thought "I could just leave now and go and get a coffee, no one would know or care, it'll be fine. I'm going to walk out the building and go an get a coffee".

Walk back in the office 15 minutes later with a coffee in my hand. Colleague says "did you just go and get a coffee?".

Dammit. Rumbled.

"No, no, so and so got me this on their lunch"

"It's got your name on"

:mellow:

The correct response to your colleague would have been "**** off nosey"!

Mine would have been:

'Well, no one's in, it's Friday, go out and get yourself one. I'll cover for you if anyone asks.'

I'd have asked before I left if anyone wanted a coffee.

Same here. I've always been able to dive out for a coffee. In Vancouver there was a Starbucks (yeah, I know) directly opposite the office and at Nike they have them on campus.

Starbucks and Costa on site at JLR. Unless you went at an obscenely ridiculous time, nobody would bat an eyelid.

Guys,

I mentioned a while back that I was doing the 3 Peaks Challenge in memory of my Dad to raise money for Cancer Research.

The challenge was yesterday (running into this morning). All three mountains climbed, although slightly over the 24 hour target (some people are slow!!)

Anyway, we've managed to raised nearly £1600 (nearly £2000 if you include gift aid). 

Still taking donations so if anyone has a spare tenner they want to put to a good cause then feel free to throw a donation my way using this link

Probably a bit of water weight there. Your weight naturally fluctuates too much for a couple of readings in isolation to be taken too seriously, keep at it and see what the trend looks like in a few weeks.

Good job though, keep it up :P

According to the scale, I lost half a stone this week on my diet. I haven't been starving myself. That seems way too much.

Sounds like Bad Aids to me.

What have you been doing? Losing half a stone without starving is my perfect diet!

1500 calories a day.

For example today (i actually went over to 1586, but I blame my rota as I have a big gap around 4-5pm and I had a cereal bar) :D

Breakfast -
30g cereal + 100ml milk - 186cal
small juice - 50cal

Snack - banana - 74cal

Lunch -
Thai curry
565cal

Snack - blueberries and cereal bar - 130cal

Dinner - Corguette burger, sticky rice and corn
600cal

And I've 100% cut out everything except water and the odd zero calorie soft drink. It's all about portion control for me. I'm weighing everything out to make sure it's accurate. (with some rounding of calories to make it add up better)

I recently heard about 2 straight men who were marrying each other for financial reasons.  They were passengers of a taxi driver mate of mine and they were on their way into town at the time on the pull (for lady people).  It's certainly a conversation starter.

After a quick Mooney the tax benefit of getting married is between £300-800 per annum as long as neither earns above £42k. 

Its a bold move for a modest saving or more likely an amusing made up in to chat ladies up.

Always drops off the first week or two. Don't worry it'll level out.
