Not quite sober for 10 years ,nowhere near in fact , but looking after a pub will either kill or cure you of boozing. It's the latter for me now.

Looking through sober eyes at the "amusing" antics that goes on did it for me. I can take it or leave it now.
I drink maybe 2-3 nights a week but as I've got older I'm definitely less fond of hangovers. This could be the turning point :)

I bet the print is won by a smuck. I'll need to explain that you don't tac these things to a wall.

realized I was getting no return on an ISA so decided to buy some shares - looked around - went with what were generally considered safe bets - already two hundred quid down since 26 September :hanging:

...Less than 2 weeks ago? You should see them as a long-term investment.

Just invest in some old stouts. They'll earn more than any ISA.

I know it was just funny that I bought these shares in Rolls Royce and literally the next day the price fell off a cliff :x

Aha. The idea of trading is so much more appealing than investing.

I can't believe how expensive DHL is. It's nice to have a collection service, and it's very hand to be able to pick up your parcel from one of their express stores outside of office hours. But bloody hell the price difference between DHL and Royal Mail is incredible.

For a package being sent with the uk, insured to £350. These are the prices.

DHL - £35
Royal Mail - £12

Granted if you have a DHL account it might be slightly cheaper, but still not justifiable in the price difference

I keep telling my friends about this. If you're shipping anything seriously look into Parcel2Go or Parcel Monkey. I have saved a fortune.

There's a video kicking about detailing the foil edition. It's looks amazing.
Im still going to pass it up though. TB is around the corner and there is zero chance me getting it even if I did want it.
