Actually nothing could be further from the truth. Yes if I am doing remote support, I can do that without getting out of bed or from the back of the van with a laptop. I migrated my biggest client in a huge building over three floors recently to a new system over a long weekend without leaving the house. However if your onsite doing such things which thankfully doesnt happen as often these days your seldom sat on your backside long and end up running around from desk to desk, floor to floor and probably under desks and in cabinets all day long. Its like spinning plates sometimes. I Cant do it anymore anyway. Im just broken.

Barry

Iím with you love

Knackered knees and gout take no prisoners

Floor to floor Iím well out

And of course Iím a year or two older than you

But I doubt the pain feels any different

I couldnt agree more Barry. Today I had to reload Firefox on OH's laptop which he hadn't used for 6 months. Went and made lunch and ate it while it was downloading via the thin straw which is used as broadband here.


I firmly subscribe to the principle of 'pink jobs and blue jobs'.


Blue jobs include bin duty, dishwasher duty, washing machine duty, his ironing, basic grocery shopping, repair anything that requires tools, phone for handyman, gardener and car washing supervision. etc.


Pink jobs - money management, birthday cards and gifts, disposing of personal garments which are past their sell-by-date, repair and alter clothes, acknowledge missives from family, bathrooms and toilets, cooking, buying fancy foods and complementary items for the basics, planning 'her' motorhome trips, sort out defaulting suppliers, insurance companies, receiver, technology training and management, change sheets and towels on cue, etc.etc


Funny my list seems to be twice as long!!

I feel so sorry for you.

What happened to work satisfaction and enjoying what your doing to earn a living +.
If I was fit enough and needed money I would still be working. But I'm not and I don't so I'm retired, although still working.

I'm Jan
We learn something new every day.

Luckily for you Jan

Like me you are retired

I imagine you have some pension or savings supporting you both

As we have

Barry is the same age as my son

He needs his health

Me I can stagger around like a pregnant duck

And still have enough money to live on

I used to really enjoy it Jan before I went semi retired nearly ten years ago now. I had a fantastic career. I do what I do now because I cant really afford to pack it in completely but ive had to take a backward step in the sort of work I do. Everything is so much harder as its like walking around with your legs in treacle. Hands on stuff in IT is a young mans game really. There is nothing I could do that would pay anywhere near as much though so I wont complain. One decent two day job can pay what most people earn in a month sometimes so a career change would be crackers. I Cant do anything else anyway. Ive tried being a Rock Star and I was sh1t at it. Well the playing bit, I can do the lifestyle quite easily.

From my own observation women get distracted as they start one job and then go onto the next completely forgetting about the first job. Then they have the cheek to tell us mere males they are brilliant and we are useless. Repeat often enough and we come to believe this fallacy.

I came home the other day and almost fell over the vacuum spread across the floor, saw the ironing board up and the iron still plugged in, shopping half unpacked, fridge door open and my wife was out deadheading.??

Ray.
Don't get me started Ray, don't get me wrong, I like wimmin, we should have two, then at least some blokes will have a happy life, but when did they get so uppity about everything, most of them are okay around the house, but they think this entitles them to know everything about everything else, they talk down to us, make jokes at our expense (try doing that to them) they have mood swings any clock would be proud of, seem to get worse as they age too.

I'll step back now

They mostly do know everything Kev

Never make jokes about the opposite sex

Why would they?

The truth serves well enough
