Not sure where to put this, but, went to watch my future son-in-law play cricket today, 10 miles away. Got there for 1pm, game started at 1.30pm, back home by 3.30pm. It didn't go well  :o :o :o :o

Sounds like son in law’s side were bowled out for not very many!

Could have been worse. Depending on your opinion of your son-in-law that could have ended up in the Angry thread or the Happy thread ;D

I think the world of him, and he did score 4 of the 28 so the unhappy thread [for the team] seemed more appropriate, I think  :D

Huzzah!
Finally got the above mentioned chappie round and he can get a couple of his guys to me next week. He appears to know his stuff and talked me through what was needed. All access is from the outside so no dismantling required, and all for the cost of an N gauge loco :)

Well the chap was going to phone me last Thursday or Friday to let me know when it could be fixed this week. Needless to say the weekend came and went without a call so I phoned his landline and left a message on Monday night. Still nothing heard from him so this morning I called his mobile from my landline which costs me money (I'm a tight wad but get free anytime calls to landlines) and, lo and behold, got to him straight away. After many feeble excuses I now have (supposedly) 2 guys coming round at 07.45 tomorrow morning to cure the leak in the mancave.
More news as it comes off the telex machine.........................

That's just wrong on three counts:

1: Breakfast TV

B: Getting up at 7am

4: Going to the gymn

Absolutely, I get up at 10am, have freshly brewed coffee and fruit for breakfast and take my wife to the gym. 

I play BBC News on my computer, best comedy show on. :thumbsup:

Depends on the quality of the company, Joe.

Well behaved and just like my mum = Hardly ever/never  :(

Occasional a bit naughty = 19:00 ish  ;)

Quite often naughty = 17:30 ish  :D

Very naughty and therefore my bestest pals ever = They're open!  :claphappy:  :beers:
