16th November: Better than yesterday

Had a lie in this morning. Got to work at 9 ish, drank tea, sent some emails then went on site visits to look at bits of road with Tim. I was a bit concerned that he was going to lock me away in unit 10 (highway's equivalent of hanger 18) in order to stop me talking to Kerrie (the lovely), but my fears were unfounded and we returned to the office safely. An extended lunch with a good friend made a change from the usual Friday fishcake butty. The day was finished off with another site visit to Sheffield's notorious Manor estate - though it's not nearly as bad as some areas of the city. I returned to the car half expecting it to be on bricks but it was still intact. I went home with the thought of an exciting weekend ahead, but I think I was having someone else's thoughts as mine was going to be shit!
