    Anybody still at work?

    I've got a big project on at tht moment its pretty good fun so the days go past too damn quick, I suppose these are the times that you realise why you earn "decent" money ;)

    Had about enough now though as I'm starting to go cross eyed!

    I'm averaging about 50 hours per week at the moment but that's crazy! :eek:

    Although the most I can do is a 12 hour shift these days, which still feels great when I remember Murf and I used to do 16 hours or more in a shift sometimes :)
