Last leap year was insignificant, but I'll leave a reminder of this one.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Handed your notice in at the University yesterday. You're just about to tell the other lads in the team. Good luck!

4 years ago my wife would have been 4 months pregnant with my eldest. I'd have been working in a job I hated while looking for a new one and I would have probably also been in regular contact with a friend who I am no longer friends with.

Today I shall be doing some filming for work and then I shall spend the rest of the day looking for a new job.

If I'd had known this thread would pop up again, I'd have planned something special today to talk about.


Hello old leap year Vision... Best do something this leap year so in four years time, you'll have something to look back on.

I shall be filming a wedding all day tomorrow. That is it. Deb and Michael for those keeping score.

If he got a message, then it didn't work.

Looks like I had a bit of a purge of my emails so mine only go back to May 2008. According to Paypal I had a refund for some batteries (exciting!) and looking at my bank account, I got paid about £400 less than I got paid today, so that's progress. Mind you, look at the historical entries, about £600 then went straight out to a gambling site. Oops.


Thankfully, 2020 devilman is a little more financially responsible than the 2008 version. Slightly anyway. Although the 2020 version is probably fatter

Indeed. Next week will be a year of no gambling, so at least that side is under control for now. Just need to stop eating so much now. :D

Message to Findus Fop next leap year:

Today your youngest climbed into bed with you, called you fat and punched you in the face. Your eldest is walking round the house with a black eye, given to her by your youngest.

Hopefully in four years' time, they've brought back borstals or conscription.

No idea what I was doing last leap year. Gaz and I had been together 9 months by that point, which - looking through my emails - I compared to the length of my pregnancy with Oliver. How bizarre.

Anyway, for next year: today I've managed to not shout at my daughter despite the fact that she's being vile this week, and I'm currently doing invoicing because it's the end of the month and I like being paid (eventually).

Because you spent the whole 9 months throwing up? ;)

You are waiting to see the aircraft carrier park up outside your work, and have the hair and wardrobe of a televangelist.

Last leap day I couldn't go to my class reunion because I was running a course in Stevenage, which suited me very well.

This year I'll be on call until 9.00pm, so may not get to this one either.

I can be very lucky sometimes.

You’re asking if the reminder for tomorrow worked?

Yep. As everyone was talking about leap day, my brain assumed it was the 29th.

Last leap day we were celebrating my eldest '6th' birthday, so tomorrow we are celebrating his '7th'!

So, here we are.

As I've been keeping a journal since 2016, I thought I'd check that to see what happened four years ago.

A slightly younger Kern wrote:
Too many meetings at work! But pleased with some calculations I did.
Queue at petrol station.


Thanks, past me!

However, email records suggest I spent the evening making holiday plans for a trip in May to northern Germany and Sweden. So at least something productive happened that Monday.

Happy Leap Day everyone!

Final: Note for next time: On this day I went to M&S Manchester Fort to fix something that wasn't broken and that the staff should have known about, Handforth Dean to replace an HHT and an RTC, the latter not needing a replacement because it just needed debris cleaning off the media sensor, Co Op Ashton on Mersey to replace a PED because some Muppet says that a socket error is caused by hardware, while my experience has been that it's a config error that causes these and should have been fettled remotely and swapping the PED didn't fix the problem, and Co Op Skelmanthorpe for a 'jammed' server printer which turned out to be users who didn't know how to set the paper tray guides to A4.

I didn't go to my class reunion.

Seventh birthday celebrated at the local pub. The Stoke contingent have headed back and I am already in my pyjamas and about to pour a large glass of red.

Joans has nipped out to stock up on snacks.

*Hunkering down*

Never seen the Tigers at Chester zoo, either. Nor has my colleague. We think they don't exist.
