Morning Losers!

The deal was done yesterday. I signed up for a new car! I'm slightly worried as I remember being excited for getting this car, but it's caused me nothing but misfortune and rubbishness. The new one, a Volvo V50, should be more reliable, and the company is a bit more reliable. I haggled a good bargain, they wouldn't knock any money off the price, but they did up the amount they gave me for the Astra from £150 to £400 :mrgreen:

Today I need to get a load of documents together so I can get the deal sorted. Will need to hand these in after work on the motorbike as the Astra has no MOT as of today.

Busy day ahead, oh yeah, I have work too. Some training or some bo11ocks.

It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    Morning all,
    Still half asleep after being kept awake by foxes for what seemed like half the night. Glad you finally got shot of the Astra old man Mule, enjoy the new motor. I will be driving a hire car to places beginning with R today, first stop Rugby. Tea first though.

    Mornin snifty saddle sniffers,

    Off out to site to look at a poorly war goer, needs some TLC!

    Other than that i'll be laughing at doddering old gits failing to drive their volvos up and down the roads.

    Pip pip.

    Should have read this thread before replying to the Monday thread, doh.

    Look forward to you doing a bit of ditch digging, mule :) Average day at work but beers are on the cards tonight, so not too bad.

    I'm back! Did I miss much?!
    Might have time to post more often now I've got a bit of work/life balance back.
    Today I am mostly pottering about in the new job with no clue what I'm really supposed to be doing.

    On the ride home I am stopping in at the pub to meet best friend, then onwards to the house and teh cat and some leftover paella while the roadie half is out with the club.

    Thought of you lot on my way to Sherwood Pines on Saturday when I passed The Limes Cafe.

    Work is happening to me, no matter how hard I try to avoid it. Dinner at the girlf's parents tonight, and then she's off to choir practice so a couple of beers and some vidya games, I think.

    Same here. Done more work today than I have in months and only just had my lunch. Not liking it. Suppose I can't complain too much though, after next week I'm back on easy street.

    Home after driving around in a German taxi for the day. I now have various options. Go into town to buy stuff, get my ears lowered or loaf. Hmmm...
