yup and it still goes on :x :evil:

any who last week I put £10 into my account but due to a computer error
they couldn't find my account but took my tenner and my details to put my money in
so I followed it up to check that everything was okay and I was taken into a office I thought my account was flagged for a bit of light over spending online
but in the separation of Lloyds TSB my olde saving account was unearthed with
£130 still in it from 17 years ago Image

Does that include the interest? ;) Seriously though, it's always nice finding unexpected money. :D

Gee...any way that I can be transferred to your parallel universe? :D

Don't leave me behind Raisin! I found it very hard to get out of the Casino business when I was young (always got asked "why would anyone want to leave such a glamorous, jetsetting lifestyle <bloody James Bond films have a lot to answer for> to work somewhere else?"). Now I'm fifty, I'm finding it impossible.

i bought a broken ladies pocket watch in a car boot for a pound so i could take the mechanism apart, when i was dismantling the case i discovered a hallmark showing the case was 18ct gold, so i weighed the case in and got a hundred and twenty quid, plus ive still got the mech to play with :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

I picked up the judgement from tenancy board today. They are awarding us about $1400, which is about $1000 less than we went in for. They gave us 75% of the cleaning etc and 50% of one month rent; plus we can keep the $500 damage deposit. The tenants still have the right to decline the offer within 10 days. If that happens we go to small claims court.
I thought it would be a little bit more, but we're pretty happy with it. :)

Hey, that's excellent Con. What offer do the tenants have the right to decline?

Harry's a gorgeous little boy, Pip. I hope you're proud of yourselves.

They can only decline the entire offer of paying the $1400ish. If they do that, it's off to small claims court. That mill cost their lawyers time and we will ask for more money as well, since we lost out on 4 months rent.

Oh, Harry. You are going to break a lot of hearts when you get older!

Not so much biting but waking up crying which is not fun.
