    Morning all,
    Slightly slower start as I'm taking the girl to physio this morning. Unfortunately this means I'm in the car on a sunny day. Rats!

    Why?:
    Are you on the run?
    Are you in Swansea?

    If you get lots of money it solves everything. Which doesn't explain why he's still f*cked up.

    If being the operative. If on the other hand you spend your life working for rich folks running around at their beck and call but never quite get there yourself although you are obsessed with money, that could mess with your head.
    Sure you get to use the rich kids play things, but they're not yours so it's not the same. Much like renting a trophy wife from a website and accusing others of looking at spurious sites. All speculation of course, what do I know?

    Think you have a point. The root problem is aspiring to the wealth in the first place. If you think speculatively buying bottles of Chateau Lafite is a long term investment, you're not really 'there' are you?

  • Just taken a sleeping bag back to decathlon after my son cut his kneck open on the zipper. Bought a camp table from Argos on my energy points. Took it back as they gave me a completely different table. They gave me correct one got it home and one of the telescopic legs has been diverted on backwards so it doesn't lock out.
    Argos is an anagram of complete and utter basterds .

    Its a pretty good bet that someone like this isnt nearly as well off they would like to be or make out to be.

    Nice day out in the sunshine for me. Now enjoying my last evening of holiday before work tomorrow. I will at least pedal in tomorrow.

    Spent 3 hours after work , under a 23 year old ( unfortunately it was a Vauxhall Corsa and not a nubile Swedish model) with an Angle grinder, Various spanners and a mallet fitting a new back box.

    Because unlike you plebs I am actually a boat owner ( £100 all in with the trailer ) result I m calling her " Echo Beach "

    Unfortunately the quote to fit a tow bar ( I only live 100 yards from the river ) to the Mitsubushi 4x4 we brought last September was £1200 and Mrs W wasn't too fond of the idea of me reversing it in and out of the Trent anyway.

    Long story short a mate at work was selling the Corsa with only 56'000 miles on it and a new tow bar fitted for only £300. No brainer in my eyes, £18 for a new back box, and the first bit of proper man work I ve done in years.

    I m off to Find Yachting Radar .com Forum.

    That's good, because I'm sure there was someone on here who knew of a great decal maker.

    I don't think I ever saw any of them though.
