    Not interested in the slightest myself, only interested cuz the kids love it. Until I watched Murray - man, he got me hyped. Guy was wicked to watch. Was painful watching that woman fail in the doubles so hard though.
    The other half and the kids are going to watch the paralympics in September, which will be cool. I get a whole day to myself :p

    Good luck with that man, my understanding is if you have a 1/2 decent reason you will get your money!

    Should I go out TPU? I've had like 6 beers (chilling etc) and the likely place is reasonably busy on a tuesday and about 10 mins away.

    other option: go to work and be shit hot again tomorrow :)

    edit: until 11:05 to decide !

    edit2: I'm going to be good. It's a freaking tuesday after all :)

    Indeed, good luck. 5K is a lot for that role.

    For those wondering I got what I expected in my recent promotion - more than the original offer and I am pretty happy with that. 4.5K up in 1 year.

    It's only inline with what good account manager roles pay, I was actually underpaid in my last job. Did you go out?

    Nah. I have to be good - I've been late a good 5 or 6 times in the last 4 weeks (not just 15 mins late either...) and I was pretty out of it just this friday. I have been doing this job for a while but now it's official I don't want to appear to be slacking off (any more).

    This is not typical I'm actually pretty good at this job just been on a "bit" of a bender lol.

    LONGSHOT WARNING

    I recently got some 1/2 decent leather shoes (light colour). I thought I would spend a bit on keeping them looking good and as well as some suitable soap I bought some of this (but off ebay):
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rucanor-Grease-Leather-Protection-Wax/dp/B003XII2KG

    So the thing is - I think I got ripped off. There are no instructions and I can't find any on the web. Also looks like I paid full RRP (damnit).

    How do I use this stuff? Is it just the usual buff in, polish etc? thoughts?

    PS apologies in advance I'm almost as bad as last night at 11ish but at least I did more exercise today

    You rub it on evenly and fairly thinly all over, leave overnight to dry in, buff with a dry smooth cloth, it won't get very shiny, then add some decent polish, brush and they will come up a treat, and be softer and waterproofed.......... the military use it sometimes on their exercise boots.
