    My suggestion is don't eat for a fortnight and spend double that. Your back will thank you.

    Depends how long you spend at your desk. My shitty dining room chairs get the job done now because I'm pottering about every 20-30 minutes.

    Is ‘BW’ a commonly known way to end an email, that I don’t know?

    ‘Thanks for this.

    BW,

    Abi’

    It better not be a shorthand ‘best wishes’ cos jeez that’s lame.

    I've not seen it before. I have a colleague that does KR which has always seemed odd to me.

    I did used to work with a bloke that used Warm Regards, but it was done intentionally for the bantz.

    If you can't even be arsed writing best wishes or kind regards then leave it off. I basically stop saying hello / kind regards with people I know (especially in a chain - how weird is it to keep saying Hello!).

    I greet everybody in the email chain individually, and then give them each a personalised farewell at the end of my email. It's only polite.

    "Kind regards" is just part of my signature. I changed it after I accidentally sent "King retards" a few years ago.

    One of my wanker clients signs off with "rgs", which is probably the worst thing ever.

    "King retards" has amused me far more than it probably should have.

    I am unimportant enough that I can put cheers, igor, and get away with it. My job role wasn't even allowed email until about 9 months ago.

    Regards for proper emails, Rgds for quick internal ones.

    The real problem comes in Spanish, where I tend to go Saludos ('greetings') but many customers put Un Saludo ('one greeting'), suggesting I may have some kind of inferiority complex when it comes to weight of greetings offered.

    So....

    Back in March, I was ineligible to be furloughed, init. So I've been campaigning with others since then. In that time I've had about 4/5 pieces in various papers , had MP signed EDM, had the debates in the House of Commons, had the biggest APPG in parliamentary history (now stands at at 280), spoke on LBC, spoke on BBC Radio Wales, all that twitter business which @phonics said is pretty good numbers, 1 in 4 people visiting my page, this week, we've had the mayors of Liverpool and Manchester get on board, Keir Starmer finally speak up and tomorrow.....

    Tune in to Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan around 7.15am if you want to see my ugly mug. BOOM!

    I presume it'll be youtube-able when I wake up at 9 because I'll be fucked if I'm downloading the ITV app.

    This is your chance at primetime TV, don't waste it with some run-of-the-mill cameo that will have no impact. You got to go viral in this day and age to actually make a point. I'd suggest:

    - practicing breaking down in tears
    - making up a powerful sob story
    - digging up relevant dirt on Piers and confronting him about it
    - "FUCK HER RIGHT IN THE PUSSY"

    I'm pretty sure it was David Sullivan he did the people's eyebrow to.

    Quality smiffy. Hope you finally get it resolved (or ask Marcus Rashford to help).

    Thank you. That's not all though!

    I've had a number of zoom meetings with Plaid Cymru to get more involved which has led to further meetings with local candidate, the MS for my region and that's where I hope to take myself after this campaign is over but better than that just yesterday my local MS and I had a zoom meeting and he's linked me up with a mental health and social change charity to work alongside us to help those who are really struggling with the mental health strain of it all.

    I think if I was to take a positive from this year it's that it's opened my eyes up, I've met some fantastic people, received help where I least expect it and now I want to try and push on further after all this and do what I can. A few of the business owners who are part of our group want to help me set up on my own etc so it could be a good end to a bad year. For now though it's a case of continuing as I have been as I feel we're finally get somewhere.

    One of my tenants has had to be moved out of Essex after getting in trouble with a Romanian gang. I'm equal parts annoyed that it isn't an Albanian gang and that nobody I work with would get any of my jokes on the subject anyway.

    There's zero chance in hell you'd get me on tv, so you can chalk it up as a win regardless. The rapid blinking and shaky voice did make me smile though.
