Going to ask HR. The regular desk chairs are better but not amazing.

You would more than likely qualify for a special chair :) Definitely talk to them and see what they say.

I found my UK store to rival Target. Dobbie's Garden Centre.

It has a Lakeland Kitchen store, Cotswold, Edinburgh Woolen Mill, Farm Food store, Home goods, restaurant and garden centre.

I'm very happy.

I was in stimulation overload!

I was in there for 3 hours. Even had a haddock tea and an ice cream cone.

I stole the car from my husband today so I could do what I wanted.

Dobbie's, TkMaxx and Waitrose.

I wanted to hit Lidl and Aldi but the access roads are shut because of a bridge removal and reconstruction and I didn't want to drive 20 minutes around when it is almost right across the street from TkMaxx.

Wow, that Dobbies sounds huge!  :o :o
I do love Dobbies , but ours only has a tiny "Mountain Warehouse" and a tiny 'The Works'  in it.  But we're Dobbies Club Members (the one you pay for) and the deals you get on plants and seeds are on members day are cracking. 
I've never gotten food on my underpants!

You're stuck with me!

(this thread shouldn't be in the Airing Cupboard, should it?  ??? )

ICED TEA HAS COME TO DRUMCHAPEL!!!
I am so happy!  Iced tea, of a sort, has slowly made its way into various places in the Glasgow area, but it's always been the horrible lemon or peach fake flavoured stuff.  But this morning I went to Starbucks out of necessity because Costa's card machine was broken and I don't carry cash.  And there it was on the menu:   plain, black iced tea, and it's very good!

Starbucks is slightly out of my way when i'm going to/from work, but I'm going to be factoring it into my journey from now on!!!  ;D

I imagine it probably shouldn't be in this sub hahaha but I think this was the default as it was discussed in the IA thread.

Some of their Green tea refreshers are actually quite good and I'm not a massive green tea person. I like their Berry Hibiscus tea but was not really a fan of the Pineapple refresher they're doing at the moment.


Every time you guys keep mentioning "dobbies" I either think of Peep Show or Harry Potter lol
