    My mate has been contacted by one of his clients requesting a copy of his detailed pandemic response plan by Friday.

    My mate runs a small property maintenance company.

      He should send them the patient information insert from a packet of supermarket brand paracetamol.

        Though to be fair being small is a higher risk factor here - if one person in a business of 5 gets infected then the chances of 100% infection are far greater than in a larger business. Though quite what a company could do to do mitigate in that situation is anyone's guess...

          Two out of eight companies have said no so far.

              Officially official in that I'm leaving the bright lights of Coventry behind at the end of next month.

                Unless your next gig is in Wokingham, that's surely not an annoyance.

                  I did six straight hours at one virtual job today, an hour at another, thankfully the boss in NYC has decided to take his wife out on V Day because I am KNACKERED.

                    Well, I liked working with them. And I'm leaving them in a better place - which is kind of the idea I know but... sometimes it is sad to move on.

                      The Parking Eye appeals people said no, so now I am appealing to Popla. It's all online. They must have loads of people appealing to have such a slick online process.

                        Kerb Gherkin has been cancelled today, due to weather warnings apparently. There's a bit of drizzle.

                          We are doing some work for a government agency. The drop dead date for completion has always been April 1st (oh the irony).

                          Right up until Christmas they were unclear on their exact requirement. It wasn't until my scheduled utilisation topped 150% that they signed off and I was finally able to begin. It's been tough going but I've worked damned hard and on our side we are in a good place. However today the government agency have announced they won't be ready and the project is to be delayed. They really are shit.
