    Good morning all.

    Another cold damp morning here.

    Great win at bowls last night, 12 - 12 going into the last end ..... then we collected a single to win. Everyone [including the opposition] bowled extremely well.

    Friendly veterans match today ... so hope last nights 'luck' stays with me!

    Have a TNT delivery arriving today too ... just hope they come when I'm here.

    You can't take it with you, as my Gran would have said...



    Very windy in Co. Down overnight but a nice clear, dry morning. Threat of snow later but it'll not come to anything.

    Off to work

    Morning Mo and Steve.
    Good win Mo but handle that TNT delivery with care, I beleive it will be marked as fragile. Speaking of deliveries I should get a few here today, including my VAGCOM cable from the US. I'll have to pay import tax on that.

    Morning Jimbo.
    A lovely day here this morning, dropped the car off at the garage then walked back in the sun. The Volvo is now dry and shinny so I hope this chap turns up at 11am with a wedge of cash.

    I'm waiting for TNT .... has my timber order from a joinery in Blackburn, Lancs.

    Can buy locally at 4 x the cost. It's worth me paying £80 in shipping fees and still save £200. Mental!

    Yep, I found that when we lived on the IoW. I paid half as much for lawn turf for it to be supplied from Newcastle, rather than going to the chap 5 miles down the road.

    You also hope he isn't as tight as you when it comes to haggling over the price of a car?

    Ha ha.....!
    I'm willing to take up to £600 off just to get rid of it but he doesn't need to know that. I've got another person lined up for Friday and it's a nice car so I'm quite hopeful for a deal.

    The chap came early and liked the car, it's for his wife so he needs to tell her what it's like but he thought it was worth every plenty (yeah right until he makes me an offer) - he was a nice chap and said he would phone tonight confirming if they want it or not. He asked what my best offer was and I just reiterated how much I'd listed it for but he can make me an offer if he likes. I've been watching too much wheeler dealers.

    We'll see Jimbo, I think he was keen and genuine - an architect no less.
    I've got another chap who has asked to come now to see it today. We'll see if he does.
