Not doing well at the moment

I'm not doing well with Yahoo! Messenger, I'm not doing well with cable Internet from NTL. Last night I got home at about half past ten and then got booted off Y! messenger about six times in a half an hour. Eventually we gave up and abandoned the chat. This is not good.

I'm not doing well with working hours that are too long. Half past ten last night, and something similar on a couple of other days this week. I had to miss jamesb's pub quiz because I hadn't had a chance to catch up on stuff at home. I'm missing out on chat time because I get home from work later than my girlfriend who is five time zones west of me. This is not good.

But most especially Collapse )At least the only thing I got taxed on in the relevant years is salary. And that was through PAYE. I have the simplest tax returns of anyone I know, and I still hate doing them.
