  1. Just realised I'm actually in that photo!! Behind the clock and to the left there are two 'big' girls, then a small boy, then a lady with white hair, well that small boy was me!
  2. Staff or customers? Not that I know the name !
  3. Yesterday:- Finally picked up my new car (Ordered on August 1st for collection 1st November, but it was delayed as long as possible as it's the new 2019 model, 8 speed automatic gear box and other new 'whistles and bells' I also had to wait for a hoist for my scooter and hand controls to be fitted.................. But at least I'm back driving again for the first time properly in 3 years!!!!) Also got my bathroom finished by my 'bessie' mate, to SWMBO and my spec with a shower screen as opposed to their idea of a curtain (Horrible smelly things!) and cabinets and shelves as the council wouldn't let us do it till the job was 'signed off' ! Got most of the Christmas decs up, just the fireplace and the outside lights to do.
  4. Still got one! (Only used for extra storage now though! although it did come in handy when I fitted the new bathroom circa 2003) We did have an internal one too! Believe it or not it was a big selling point to SWMBO when we bought this house. She pictured kids getting 'caught short' whilst playing in the garden and needing somewhere to go quick, me? anything to keep her happy!
  5. Got to agree that the site you were originally discussing 'owners' are way up their own posteriors ! I posted some of my old stuff on there only to be told that they were the only ones allowed to do so.......................... A couple of weeks later, lo and behold, he's lifting stuff off of my photobucket page and posting it as his own!.......... The first time he did it I pointed out that just an acknowledgement would be suffice, only to be ignored, he did it again (Even being that thick as to leave a direct link to my PB page open!!) I did get a thank you this time and so far he's not tried it again!!
  6. Recently:- Killing Eve.... Quite good but what a rubbish ending! Informer....... As above! The little Drummer Girl....... Gave up after three episodes!
  7. Not posted for a long while but hearing the sad news of the death of Gordon Cragg (Variety Club) bought me on to pass on my condolences. Any how my day? (Or rather past few days) During the summer (Starting early June) I had my bathroom converted to a wet room and a 'through floor lift' put in..................... I've finally got the job 'signed off' today!! There have been that many problems along the way, including at one point the original fitter being dismissed and a new one brought in to completely re do the whole floor as the water was running out the door instead of down the drain! The first fitter had also run my central heating system with no water in it, vis a vis my boiler packed up!! Cost me £300 to get it fixed! I've billed them for it (8th October) they got back to me last week to offer me a replacement boiler at 'cost price' ..... They didn't seem to grasp the fact I didn't need a replacement boiler as I'd paid for the old one to be fixed!!.... They finally came back (Yesterday) with an offer of £100 compensation (Regardless of the fact I've given them the receipt for the £300 I forked out!.... I give up! October 2017 I have a face to face re assessment for my PIP, i was on 'enhanced' for both mobility and living allowances but the assessor deemed himself to be above all specialists and doctors claiming I had partially recovered from Multiple Sclerosis ! (An absolute impossibility) this time my PIP was reduced by £25 per week! Finally on Monday 26th November I had a tribunal hearing at Chester Magistrates Court, to be in and out in 10 minutes having won my case, being told it will take about two weeks to get it all sorted and I'll get my 'back dated benefit' payed with my next PIP payment (Today) Nice and timely for Christmas thought I.....Guess what?..... Yup, it hasn't gone into my bank and I'm still on reduced benefit!.... So I ring PIP to find out what's going on to be told that it can take up to a further 40 weeks for them to get it sorted! "So let me get this right, you can take the money off of me immediately, even going back to the day/date it was wrongly reduced, you can also reduce my wifes working tax credit (By far the wrong ammount too) immediately, but it's going to take nigh on 2 years for you to pay me back?!" "Well we have a big back log" Now that last statement doesn't surprise me in the slightest, as I'm on a FB group that is all to do with PIP and how people being wrongly treated and are all going through the appeals process, which , by the way, must be costing the DSS Millions !! Now up to this past week..... Our fridge/freezer has started making a real loud noise which makes me think it's dying. Oh and my 'riser recliner' chair just died too! I went to see a specialist yesterday about my Crohns disease, to be told that I shouldn't be on a certain medication that I've been on for 10 years as that is not good where Crohns is concerned, she also told me I should be on a Calcium supplement as the steroids I'm on for MS can lead to osteoperosis and cataract problems! So on the whole not a bad few days.
  8. Sorry to hear that Nick RIP Gordon
  9. I've found the thread with the photos of his fathers logbook and a picture of the man himself
  10. I found out through Face Book, where we've been corresponding for a number of years, even doing a video link a couple of times, he was always a very pleasant friend indeed. I have to admit to a few tears last night when I found out but I didn't post on here as I couldn't remember his user name. If any of you have long enough memories it was his photo of his father (Who was a WW 22 Polish Sqdn Spitfire pilot.) That I cleaned up for him , It'll be on here somewhere.
  11. Sad to say we didn't always see 'eye to eye' on everything but he was a true character, a great raconteur, never flinching in his bombastic charge along lifes great highway, and right or wrong he was never afraid to throw his two pennorth into the debates of the day. Nice to have met up on an 'Aviation Day' to Lincolnshire all those years ago and shared a few tales in person. RIP Pete...........................Long may your memories be ours too Ian
  12. We had one on Tuesday Red. Tuesday they do a 'special', a 9 piece bucket for £5.99, add to that a boneless 8 pieces and you get the fries sides and a bottle of 'pop' all for less than £20 ! (believe it or not I've still got three pieces left, even after 4 of us attacked it, then me and the lad had seconds Thursday!)
