  1. I would have left home earlier if I'd know it was happening before I set off for work... [as it happens, I didn't get caught up in it because of where I would have joined the queue, I realised something was different and had the option to find another way round. But I'm just making a point :-)]
  2. I'm pretty sure it was open again as I came past about an hour ago, saw a car turn down there (from Catch Bar Lane)
  3. I love this! Every day's a schoolday 🙂
  4. That could explain the noise I heard the other morning around 3 a.m. - my neighbour has a gate that clangs like a bell when it moves (great for me when they leave at 5.15 a.m. :-/) - I didn't see anything when I looked out though, maybe the noise frightened them off...
  5. I've cycled through without being charged. I thought the charge was for car parking.
  6. Sort of what I said on the first page... Plus apparently lithium mining for the batteries isn't very good environmentally. How it compares to oil production, I don't know.
  7. My friend has a PHEV, she knows all the charging points she can stop off either on journeys or to leave it whilst she's at work! She has a driveway of sorts though. I live in a terrace, so won't be going electric anytime soon...
  8. Or even gay people of either gender? I'm still not getting the point of why mixed gender changing facilities are unacceptable to some of the people on this thread, as they've not really explained. Presumably sharing changing facilities is offensive in case you see someone of the opposite gender 'en deshabille', but if they are segregated and a person is attracted to their own gender, where does that fit in?
  9. Wednesday have a calendar thing on their website, you can download all the home fixtures to your own calendar. You could check if United have the same.
  10. I'm really glad I'm not working today. The area round Endcliffe Vale is in my patch!
  11. My bike is cheaper and more reliable than public transport. I always look for the alternative to driving if I'm going out (not least so I can have a drink 😃) Unfortunately, I have to drive for work, so there's no getting away from the car yet...
  12. Or ask SCCCC's if they could do it - they seem to be able to do most things!
  13. It's a good time of year for "Angry People in Local Newspapers"! I love my uniform. It means I really don't have to think about what I have to wear each day, it does give me a sense of belonging/achievement - I've earned the right to wear it - it sort of identifies my role as well, and even though I definitely work to live, my job is part of who I am as a person. Uniform rules at work are at least as strict as school uniform rules, so school uniform is a good preparation for working life!
  14. My edit (rather than having the whole post quoted) You think being distracted with these activities is comparable to being distracted whilst driving?
  15. Try SCCCC's. They do so much for older people, befriending is one of their services. Also, depending where you live there might be something focussing more locally - there's certainly one in Crosspool - it's called "Care in Crosspool" if my memory is correct, there may be others in different areasl
