You'll be right mate

Nearly 40 degrees on Monday and Tuesday. I used to do a day labour in that in North Queensland and that was the heat by 8am.

With that said you could always stop off in a room that has aircon, where as buildings in Britain are built to retain heat so it will feel even hotter than 40.

It drives me bloody barmy when people a chuck an apostrophe when writing out decades. It isn’t 00’s, the 00s don’t own anything. One could write  ‘00s or ‘90s; because those are contractions, but an apostrophe before an S isn’t pluralisation, it dictates a noun’s ownership.

I see it all the time in professional writing and official documentation.  My grammar isn’t perfect but that is definitely a pet peeve.

It would be hard to find someone who disagree's with you, the chance's of people actually using apostrophe's correctly consistently would be rare.

Has this been the case since the 80's? Or earlier, in the 70's?

Did you notice it in the 90's and 00's too?

“Check your PMs” definitely belongs to the 00’s

It was acceptable in the 80’s

Typical, at least put a little effort in it instead of bottom of the barrel jokes.

Also it is because I had just woken up to a bunch of smartarsery, my mental banter shields weren’t ready 

I am a victim of injustice. @Whiskey please report this to the cyber police

A friend of mine is a season ticket holder for the Chicago Fire and today he and his friend won bonus pitchside seats as a perk of being season ticket holders, and he invited me to come. The problem being it is in few hours, and Soldier Field is really hard to get to where I am. Unfortunately I had to turn it down because I don’t think I could arrive on time. It is really stupid for the Chciago Fire to do this on the day of.

So i am back after roughly more than two years away? Lot of things happened to me good and bad over the two years. I moved to Germany in December and recently found a flat and now waiting for a Visa for my wife and the new member of the TB gang my one year old son. Yeah became a dad too last May, so that is exciting. My mum also passed away a month before my move to Germany last year in November and i had so little time to accept it all if i accepted it at all. Currently in a transition period as i look to move to a different job and connect with my family. The last year and a half was filled with ups and downs so much happened in a short period that put so much pressure on my mind. However things are starting to click, my hard work and efforts here are paying off in a way. So looking forward to the future for the first time in quite some time.

Hope you guys and your loved one's are well

It's been two years!?

Welcome home Blue Boy, this place is still ticking along with a lot of handbag fights at 40 paces but other than that we are all still in the land of the living, congrats on the newborn son, a baby True Blue in the making. :D
