    Hot day. Really hot. 39 deg C in places...

    had a job interview, which I think went well, but hard to know. Interviewer has mastered the inscrutable look, dammit. Had another job offer, but declined, because it would have meant dealing with programmers. In Spain FFS... As if!

    Home for a swim, and several cool drinks. Did I mention it was hot?

    Morning all,
    Working from home again, glad I didn't have to ride in as the mercury was showing -5'C this morning. Forum goes down at 11am so I should get a fair amount of work done. It being Skynyrd day I shall have to go to the pub later, I could use a drink.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Spinner, send some heat.

    Looking at old rustic houses in Oulx, Italy.

    Other than that I'm making funny shapes on a computer screen and idling the time away until I go skiing.

    Boy passed his driving test, now trying to get insurance. Current insurer upped the premium by over £3k!!! Got it down to £1400 at best so far.

    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Good news V68, now he can drive you to the pub (and back hopefully). Make the most of a cab-happy teenager. And no, it's not child exploitation, it's payback time.
    You probably know, but some multicar/family deals may enable the youth to build up a sensible insurance history.

    Old hat.

    I've been concentrating on my own tax planning - just filed my 2014/15 tax return and was wondering how to spend my £13k refund, so any suggestions welcome. As you're an upstanding liberal type who likes people to pay more tax, I guess you won't mind paying a bit more to take up the slack :wink:
