Thanks all.  The 'little ones' are a short ways away yet, as for sorting out a date, preliminary discussion is next fall.

as aluded to above.  went to see the new version of War of the Worlds in brum last night.   :thumbup: I like it, its different enough to the origanal version to show, the music is rescored slightly and the dialoge subtley differnt, the stage has more "effects"  like the tripodes heat ray now belching flame ( i kid you not!) the new cast work well, Liam Nealson has the gravitas to carry it and his voice and manerisams diffent enough to Richard Burton that the part is his own.  Marti Pellow was ok ( im not a big fan of his from back in the day so.)  Both Ricky Wilson and  Will Stapleton were good as the artillery man and voice of humanity, and Jason donovan does Parson Nathaniel well. needless to say both parts passed very quickly and im a bit tapped out on the merch, ( new version CD and Vinal t shirt program and mug).  And the best bit is that it was a much apreciated chritmas pressy from my lovely wife from last year.

"I got a couple of ready-tied bow ties for the Christmas party at work next week."

"Cool. Hey, we should put them on the dogs - Rufus and Alfie'll look like James Bond!"

[...]

"Aah. Shame we've only got two, Star and Millie are being left out."

"Well, we've got the Santa outfit and the Liverpool shirt..."


And that's how we ended up with this photo:

Got a Christmas bonus again this year.  Smaller than last year, but hey, a bonus is a bonus.  On top of that, I also go a raise.  Woot.

Bonus is always good. Being employed by the government I never get a bonus... I do have a six week break though, interspersed with needing to go back into work for prep for the new year.

Bonuses ? 6 weeks holiday ?  I'm working 9 hrs christmas day, 8 hrs boxing day and New years day  :roll:
Having said that It's treble time and two lots of double time so I work 25 hrs and get paid for 59 - nearly another weeks wages for doing nothing - no brainer really ! :lol:

not quite "things that make me happy" but more things that have made my co-workers happy.  I was planning on getting douhnuts for the office i work in ( theres a greggs on site with the multi buy i was reconing abought 10  for doughnuts for everyone)  one of my coworkers won a bit of cash on a scrach card and mentioned that he was also thinking the same thing this morning, so we split the cost half way and all afternoon the office has had a wonderful suger fuelled bon homme to it.
and as i dont mind a day  old doughnut there probaly gonna be a couple left tommorow as well.

So, as yesterday was Friday, as I posted earlier, we had donut day.  Being the last weekday before the holiday, we had a number of customers bring in treats.  We ended up having about 5 dozen donuts, a meat and cheese tray and a fruit and dip tray.  We still have donuts left.

It got to the point where we couldn't give them away.  There were still around a dozen at the end of today.
