    Thanks VT yes it's a good idea ordering the coals themselves I hadn't really thought about that doh! The garage door is broken too and the well maintained lawns are a mass of soil and weeds but it is probably better if they keep their heads down and fix these things themselves. They should keep the broken garage door and when they leave put it back on!! It must have been someone else with the dirty oven.
    Thanks for the advice I'll pass it on tomorrow.

    What does it mean for Thailand?

    Just loved reading all your stories today....apologies for the lack of thanks.......unsure whether it was someone's suggestion about maxing out your pension contributions but anyway I decided to do that today....should have done it yonks ago.....but better late than never.

    I'm lucky that I love my job and want to work for a long time yet. I haven't any great plans to tour the world or climb mountains......as if....I'm happy with the simple things.....good food, a nice bottle of wine, my allotment and a happy healthy family....but planning for the future is important too and great to see so many of us have plans in place

    I would quote Di in as well but on previous page.

    As some might know my last home was rented and owned by the notorious Wilsons. It might have been their house but it was my home.

Their "empire" was already growing even when half the staffroom at this school were completely stressed out most of the time because it was when the interest rates were going through the roof and peoples mortgages were doubling even trebling and some were loosing houses etc. I often used to wonder how on earth they survived but I guess the rules are different if you "know" the ones in power. Always a not so faint wiff of corruption around them..
