Work ethics, or lack of a work ethic, comes from the family.

Parenting is an underestimated job today.

No, but it sounds like you're getting your quips out of them.

I don't suppose that anyone used to British sanitation likes the Greek sewage system but it's not that bad.

We rent a villa in Kefalonia most summers and take nappy sacks with us so there is no smell or lack of hygiene.

You may not care about clogging up someone's sewage but the people we rent the villa from are a very nice couple and I would hate to land them with a substantial bill to clear out their sewage just because I couldn't be bothered to fit in with local customs

Imagine putting your pooey rags in nappy sacks and then having a go at someone for acting civilised.

I was having a laugh anyway mate, although I appreciate observation humour doesn't go don't too well when it's all true.

I've been to the middle East and didn't feel obliged to take part in stoning women accused of adultery just because it's a local custom.

I'm always positive.

As stated I love Haven, Cyprus and being British. Just pointed out a few facts that you saw as a negative because they are.

I nearly mentioned that but didn’t fancy one our ‘talks’ again

I am a civil servant, contrary to public belief some of us do work long hours, I usually work about 60 hours a week and get paid for 36. I regularly fail to take all of my leave to boot.

Maybe I should have sold my soul to the devil...

So you're the one!

Great stuff. How's that pension and retirement age holding out?

Interesting post from an interesting poster.

I feel Work is a deep rooted issue. If I look at myself for example, a self confessed workaholic.

I came from a humble background and worked my ass of for years to
better myself (whatever that means) I’m nowadays far more
comfortable however I don’t really know how to relax or switch off, in fact, I am never really happier than when working on something which, will in my eyes, push me further forward in life.

Love my kids and family etc, love Palace but I constantly feel compelled to be working on something.

Aww Tom I will take that as a compliment I think.
I suppose just that explains the interesting bit.
