Careful now Con! Falling downstairs left me in such a state that I could hardly do my job for most of last year.
Really hoping your mum is better soon.

Out of interest I googled South M........, Chilli. Nope. Doesn't exist! But judging by the average house prices in your postcode, I can see why the pound signs lit up in the eyes of the developers round there.

Susanne, I'm still counting the cost of the repair bills on my car last year and they weren't close to $2k or the £ equivalent.

Glad you weren't too badly hurt Con but sorry about your mum's complications. I hope you both recover soon.

Nice to see you back Dug and I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of pics. :D

Con, hope you and your mom are doing better soon. Take it easy for awhile!

Welcome back Dug. :D

This is our first big repair on this car. Certainly, I wouldn't be ok with doing this on a regular basis. I should be ok for quite some time (knock wood). Turns out the breaks needed to be done too, but can't fuss about that because the total bill with the additional work came out less than the estimate! :D So, of course, I went to TJ Maxx. :shifty:

You're not wrong there Janet. I live in a 3 bed semi 1950's ex-council house - and even that was expensive- though not as bad as all the new houses being built. Trouble is there's hardly any 1&2 bed houses being built round here. The developers prefer building 3, 4 and 5 bed houses. The cheapest of these go for about 300K up to maybe 600K. So it means that even after buying land and development costs, they will make many millions if they get permission to build on the field. Plus the fact that green land is going to cost less to buy in the first place.
We regularly see old 3/4 bed bungalows with big gardens selling for 400-500K just to be ripped down so developers can build 5-10 houses in its place.
Trouble is, I was born and brought up in this area - I don't particularly want to move away just because it's now been discovered by developers and become an easy route to riches for them.

How do I feel?

Watch this video. About 12 seconds in is how I feel, except substitute 'Super Saiyan' with 'great writer'.

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

:happy-partydance: Don't have to go to the place where I hate working ANY MORE. Sent my resignation about 3 weeks ago effective from when contract ends in December. Letter today says they no longer require my services. Hang on......does that mean I'm sacked?
Bugger!

Don't know about the UK but for social welfare purposes its better to be sacked or let go in Ireland as it means you can get benefits straight away. If you quit it takes a fare while.

I believe it's the same here Pip, but, not to worry mate, I'm self-employed and this was just a small contract I did that I wanted to stop at the end of the year anyway :D

How do I feel today? Like inside, I'm like a Francis Bacon painting, grotesque and perpetually screaming. :roll:

Actually, if you get sacked over here, you are deemed to have "made yourself unemployed" and are therefore not entitled to any benefits for about 6-8 weeks, I believe.
