Mine was only 2 or 3 years later. I used to love the smell of peat in the air, much reduced these days - hard to get it unless you know who to ask it seems. Best winter fires ever IMHO.

My Uncle lives in rural Tipperary and always has a shed full of cut turf.

This would be a nice photo of his cottage if some bellend hadn't parked a Viva in front of it😂

Sounds almost too good to be true. Any downsides?

Only the 6 month probation being a risk, I guess - but I can't see any right now. The current job has been somewhat underpaid and it's a very small company - so to improve matters, I needed out. I've been there 9 years.. wow that's a long time.

5 days car rental with any of the big 4 in USA for 5 days in Feb

3 were 700+ one was a grand forks r a compact)

Ffs- not gonna do what I was gonna do then when that's twice as much as the flight

 

Car rental is absolutely bonkers at the moment. When we were up in Edinburgh the other week, we thought about hiring a car and spending a day going out of the city to see a few sights. Absolutely horrendous. I don't think we could find anything under a ton for a day. Many places had a minimum of 3 days booking too.

had a couple of nights camping, was supposed to be going back home in the morning, but I've just seen the forecast and it's heavy snow all night.

If that's the case I can't see me getting the van off this field (I'd be struggling without the snow tbh!) so I'll simply have to stay here til the snow melts. There's plenty of beer in the fridge and it's 45 minutes walk to Monyash for a mega breakfast. Suits me.

The Rotterdam ferry is quite useful.

The university has some nice buildings - I particularly like the chemistry dept which has three floors on one wing and four on the extension side- same height buildings though so the floors are ramped to meet up.
