Go the F**k Home

As regular readers of this blog will have gathered, the theme of the blog for this month has been PLAY. Every day in May (so far) I have written a post on this topic.

It's been pretty easy really. Since I decided to give up working for a living a few years back, pretty much everything I do is play.

Sailing is play.

Running is play.

Blogging is play.

Gardening is play.

Playing with grandkids is playing with grandkids.

Sitting on our deck with my wife on a Wednesday evening, enjoying a bottle of wine while we watch sailboats racing and the sun setting is...  well, it's a lot better than being at work.

But I realize that many of my readers are still working to make enough money so that one day they can go home and play.

I also know for a fact that most of you read this blog during the hours you should be working.

This video is for you.

The bit of it I like best is the part where she says if you can't name at least two things you are doing outside work then you don't have a life.

And the way she keeps saying, "Go the F**k home!"

Now that deserves a like button. Alas her theory doesn't work if in an SME and client gets bolshie but a good objective.

Note: didn't watch at work as went home on time today :)

People whose work IS sailing are en exception to the rule. They shouldn't ever go home.

She says there's plenty of things to do in Philadpelphia?


You can always go and look at that bell with my name on it.

Wednesday was a nice night to be watching the boats and sunset on Mount Hope Bay. Way nicer than the previous FOGGY wednesday ; )

Tillerman said...

It certainly was.

I watched that fog bank come in on Wednesday last week and cover the whole bay while the fleet was racing. I hope everyone got home safely!

It was interesting, to say the least, I had neglected to check the batteries in our handheld/ONLY GPS and it was in operative ;(

All racers managed to return safely home after the race. You should join us some wednesday night, allways room for extra talent :)
