    And now the fuse is lit... 25th Sep 17 at 6:40 PM
    Well...

    I have a house. And a mortgage. Took years and cost a fortune, as Batman said once.

    Don't talk to me about surveys (though this one at "so so" was better than many). Or surveyors (I wouldn't use this one again - seemed scared of ladders). Or vendors (though this one was great). Or estate agents (this one was truly dreadful). Or solicitors (though this one was great).

    I don't suppose this diary is going to be much about finances or mortgages, because let's face it, apart from a little kerfuffle once a month (when I get paid) nothing much seems to happen. It'll probably just being rude about things, and encouraging others to be rude too...

    Welcome aboard the mortgage diary. Hopefully it will be an express elevator to hell - going down!

    Twenty five years seems a long time otherwise...

    Ooh...don't annoy Butti, Beanie - or she'll get the whips out.

    And I'm sure you don't want that.

    So does that mean you're staying Bob?

    I have just unpacked a magnetically-shielded centre speaker...

    When was the last time anyone needed one of those?
