This is clearly something I need to rectify.

I know what I do, but no one's asked me to do it today, and I can't do it unless someone asks me. I know that this is because there was no one in the office yesterday to accept requests for me to do any things today, so I'm doing other things instead, like finally getting around to weeding my mailbox and some of them useless on-line courses that they want us all to do, but that we're usually too busy doing our proper tasks to be able to find time to do them.

That sentence got a bit messy towards the end, but I can't be bovvered to apply the 5 Cs to it.

My phone has started acting weird when it's on WiFi. It's almost like it's being throttled somewhere as it takes ages to connect to Web pages and download images on Twitter.

I've reset my router a couple of times and turned my phone off and on too. It's really quite annoying as the 4G signal in my house is pretty patchy too.

It's the Russians. They started faffing around with my TiVo a couple of days ago. We were watching McMafia on the Beeb and suddenly it swapped to a Netflix splash page and I when I tried to swap back to channel 101 it just swapped back again, and again, and again. I could only fix it by doing a hard reset.

I worked on and off over Christmas but the kids were back today and so a 2hr meeting this AM really kicked things off. Got to make 2018 my best year yet.

I ate a load of seafood and got sick so had to miss a day of work, I still got paid though, and didn't die, so I guess that is first-worldy.

Do you have to wear a black suit to a funeral? It's my next door neighbour's tomorrow (cremation, and double check that apostrophe placement) and although I think my attire is the least of her concerns, could I get away with dark clothes and a jumper?

I don't always. I wear a black tie and blue suit, or black suit and coloured tie.

A suit's the easiest way to look suitably dark and sombre.

I was once at a funeral where some idiot in-law rocked up in a black top with "FCUK" across the front in rhinestones. Don't wear something like that, it *really* doesn't go down well.

It's like a wedding: you don't want to wear anything that draws attention away from the day's stars.

I think you'd get away with dark clothes. I'm sure you're not going to look inappropriate so I wouldn't worry too much.

As long as you wear dark and smart clothes you won’t raise any eyebrows from the older generation. I doubt you’d choose anything inappropriate. If you’re at all uncertain though, and have a dark or black suit to hand, go with that to avoid self-doubt.

Don’t glide in on a pair of adult heelies, either.

I'll let Jem tell the story about her brother's funeral and the behaviour and dress code that was apparently acceptable.
