Back working from home again. How to cope...
at 16:05 17 Sep 2020

We were informed this morning that one our colleagues has tested positive for covid. Chances are she's been carrying since last Wednesday, but the symptoms didn't show up until Sunday night. Many people (myself included) have been in contact with her in the days leading up to the weekend, so our boss decided everyone who can work from home should leave immediately.

This is the second time I'll be working from home this year. The first time was from the beginning of lockdown in mid March, up until the beginning of July. This was a bit of a struggle for me as I'm also type 1 diabetic and spent those 3 months shielding, meaning I did very little outside of work as well. It was also the first time I'd ever worked from home in my near 20 years working life. I found working on my own with no interaction a real problem and if I'm being honest, affected my work performance massively. I've also found that I get bored easily and when I'm bored I'll snack way too much, something which showed up badly in my last diabetic blood test.

I guess this is a long ass way of asking how you guys who work from home all the time manage. Any help or tips would be appreciated as I'm more than a little worried (maybe overreacting) that this will be a lot more challenging than last time...

Cricket - Day 2. What's gonna happen then...?
at 10:15 9 Jul 2020

It's really looking like a series that'll be won and lost by the bowlers more than the top order at the moment. Both teams have fantastic attacks.

Still rather bemused at the decision to bat yesterday. Think we'll do well to get to 250...

Apple airpods...
at 07:45 9 Nov 2019

Does anyone own a cheaper alternative to these they would recommend? Want a pair I can use on the train and occasionally in the office.

I mean yeah, airpods are pretty good. But they're not really worth £150 +, are they...?

Cricket ticket ballots (Steve M, Facters etc may know the answer here...)
at 13:30 7 Oct 2019

Went in for a few ballots for next years internationals and had an email from Trent Bridge this morning telling me to "Make sure you're ready to snaffle the international tickets you requested in the recent ballot at 9.30am tomorrow"

Anyone with any experience of this know if that basically means I've managed to get drawn in the ballot already or is it more of a "Have your card ready in case you get tickets"...?

Work advice...
at 15:59 4 Jun 2019

Barely use this site anymore, but have always found people to be pretty good at this sort of thing so asking for a little help.

I’ve been in the same trade since I left school. I’ve always been good at my job and always thought I loved what I did. Until the last month or so. I’m 34 on Friday and I’ve realised that the job I’ve done for nearly 18 years is not for me anymore. I’m completely disillusioned with it. For the first time in my life I’m considering switching to a new career. My one small problem is, I don’t know what that career is. I have no idea what I would want to do with my life. There’s nothing I’ve ever considered in the past. Is this being naive? Maybe a case of reluctance or scared of the unknown?

The other issue, as we all find with life is finance. I’d say my job pays me a comfortable wage, which allows me to do the things I enjoy (travelling to watch Town, gigs and festivals) and keeps me happy in life. Obviously there’s no way I could jump from one job into something I’ve never done before and expect to carry on living the same way and being paid the same. However, I know that if I had to give up the things I enjoy outside of my life, I’d be pretty miserable. Work to live and all that.

So, am I being too naive? Am I looking at the short term, being selfish and no more than that? Am I just having a mini, slightly early midlife crisis? Has anyone ever been in a similar position and what did you do to change things?

Like I say, I barely use this site nowadays so if I come back to people then there’s a chance I won’t be relying for a couple days. You’re all good eggs on the whole and hopeful some of you will have some decent advice...

Cheers in advance...
