Yay :claphappy:

Got home from Perth yesterday to find a cheque from the taxman which will cover 50% of my enormous pre order list :bounce:

I wonder if it will last long enough Mick, for the pre-orders to come?   :laugh: Now when's TINGS ?  :laugh:

.. and there you were, Mick, getting all jealous over my 34 from the same bloke!

Well done mate! Pleased for you.  :claphappy:

I have a small inheritance from my recently passed dad and that is being invested in a similar fashion.

Make sure we see *-everything* you buy!

A very nice bloke came and installed fibre optic broadband for me this morning.

I connected my mobile phone first as my PC was not wireless at that time.  Once he was satisfied my mobile had connected he left and I installed a Wi-Fi dongle on my PC which is now connected to the fibre optic broadband and I am getting over ten times the speed I was which will improve over the next couple of weeks  :claphappy:

Soon after that the postman rang the doorbell and handed me the twin pack of Spitfires kits in 1:144 I ordered Tuesday evening, they do look tiny  :goggleeyes:

cheers John.

You may Mick, I use Orange, they supply my landline and broadband but not my mobile.
I have to pay an extra 1.75 per month for the upgrade  :D

Got an email from ERNIE (no, not the milkman!) to say he'd got something for me.

A modest win on the Premium Bonds tops up the 'railway account' that more than covers the couple of MK1 coaches just arrived:   Pullman 'The Hadrian Bar' and a TPO with side lights.

Cheers ERNIE!  :beers:

I had 3 PAYG for years. Switched to their 15.99 contract as I was spending 25 a month on PAYG!
More data for less money.  8)
I just used a lot too quickly, mainly from the numerous uploading attempts with my backscene tutorial.
Still, that was worth doing so I won't complain!  :)

On Friday I was offered a new job in Swindon and after having thought about it over the weekend I have decided to accept it. They have offered me 6500 more than I am on at the moment plus a car. It didn't really take too much thinking about if I'm honest  :)

Many congrats TF.

Swindon to Devizes, wearing out someone else's car plus the terrific extra cash ain't no bad deal!

All the best - I hope you'll be happy in the new job.
