How bad is today?

The Frenchman at La Tratteur Cafe still has a full complement of lunchtime baguettes for sale. It's 4 o'clock.


  1. Cheer up. Days like these prove you made the right change of career choice.

    You could've been on your hands and knees in the mid-morning weather on a roof terrace overlooking the river checking if/where the f**king lead flashings failed while on the floor below you is a displeased wizard emptying out buckets that are filling up with rainwater ruining his books and then you realise the problem is actually coming from the Lord's side (who lives next door, and is away on hols)...

    and then find out your Oyster card is empty after waiting in the rain for the bus...

    yes my son, you made the right choice.
