    and then I had the message I was sort of expecting from Errant child who has run out of money already and wanted a loan

    I have loaned him money previously so when he was back last summer and waiting to start his new job we thought it would be a while before the first pay day. We set up a standing order to pay the loan back in instalments each month.
    So far 6 repayments and this standing order is still in place so at least it will go through this month with no issue.

    Yes I am an idiot for loaning him money in the first place as the entire mess is of his own making and yes I hate myself. And yes the other 2 kids wont be told as they don't agree with my methods but I've been skint and in trouble with no one to help when I was in my 20s so I know the misery.

    I've sent him my terms and conditions, that the repayments continue and the money is for living costs until he is working again

    and yes he only gets in touch when he wants something and it suits him
    “Create all the happiness you are able to create; remove all the misery you are able to remove. Every day will allow you, --will invite you to add something to the pleasure of others, --or to diminish something of their pains.”

The school he teaches at owns a lakeside camping ground with chalets etc and we can stay there free for a couple of nights and explore that ares as well.

    Thanks Anon. Still catching up here, but thought I'd mention it while I saw your post which prompted me to pass on what I got.

    I've been on yearly sim only contracts with o2 for yonks, getting them to add more minutes etc at the beginning, then when I started to get smart phones asking them cheekily to add data which they obliged.

    I've been getting messages that I'm up to 80% of my data allowance with over 2 weeks to go to my next bills. I think it's because I've been hacking my data while I've been out and about. Only thing is, my latest contract doesn't end until Aug '17.

    I looked at different providers and Three was coming out very cheap, 12 month sim only 'Three Essential Plan' contract for just £9 a month instead of £17. This is for 4GB data, and all you can eat minutes and texts.

    Still wishing to stay with o2, I went straight on their online chat. They said at first that I would have to pay a fee for ending my contract early, asked to be put through to disconnections, long story short, no early release fee, they've reduced my monthly bill by £3 a month and increased my data from 1GB to 5GB

    Thank you for thinking of him hampy. He is still one armed at the minute. The pins in his hand will be there for a few weeks yet and it's driving him bonkers. He can't wait to get out on his bike again. The fine weather is driving him mad. I'll mention this to him. He certainly has time to kill

    Oh, i definitely know its Friday

    Hidden Restaurants with Michel Roux Jr. It was on Channel 4 at 8pm on Wednesday, so should be on catch-up. It is all about ones in the North East.

    Defo worth a watch on catch up
