1st November


3 bloody hours to get to work this morning!!!!!
There was an accident on the M6 between junction 7 and 6 going North!
Well, sod's law...that's the way I had to go.

Over the past 4 days, there has only been 1 day when there hasn't been an accident!!!!

My bladder, as you know, needs to empty when it needs to empty.
I know that I can manage 2 hours...(and that is making sure that I know that there are services on route!)

Well, 3 hours was just too much, I was in tears for the last half an where to stop....I was in agony!


Ah! I feel so much better now that I have got that off my chest!

Only another 2 days to go before I get my results.
I am feeling so positive about them, that it is scary!

Lets hope that positive attitudes work!

Hi Aaron,
Great to hear from you.,
I will email tomorrow evening, although for some reason, my emails just sit in the out box for yonkers these days!
Any way,
Sod's Law,Murphy's Law or Sod's Law?

While I admit that the name of Murphy's laws is a pleasant one as is the story of how it came to light, but the original name for 'if anything can go wrong it will' was sod's law because it would happen to any poor sod who needed such a catastrophic event the least. It also removes the ability to say "I coined this phrase!" because sod's law has been around long before any living man and has existed in many forms for hundreds of years. In the English County of Yorkshire I know it to have been around for generations because it has been passed through several Yorkshire families I know. But this original name is dying out because sod over here is a cursory so is not used much. Murphy's on the other hand is nothing insulting or lacking in hope I hope this clears any problems up and while this maybe hard to come to terms with, think about it, would such an obvious piece of logic have only come about in the second half of the 20th century???? as follows:

Murphy's Law means much the same, but it was 'coined'
in an engineering factory. It was a man called Murphy who said about one of his engineers:
if anyone can make a mistake, it will be him....
(not verbatum)!
I can send you the story behind it if you like....
