    yeah, but the wing gets used for years, and sells for close to cost, whereas the Malta trip is soon history :)

    Memories last a life time though big@Dave Whitlow.

    Anyway, onto today’s gripe:

    Having driven to the bottom right corner of the country, motored out to sea and started to kit up, I discovered that the twisty part of my suit dump and whatever gubbins sits under that had taken it upon itself to fall apart at some point in the not too distant past. Arseholes, tits, cunts and bollocks, as they say in Scotland.

    I’d be alright with my BSAC insurance though.

    My predicted text / autocorrect has gone mad on my phone and started changing words to random gibberish. For example:

    CanCanyoneCguess wbatwi amatrying to. Type?

    SerioisltSthoughS can you actjaact sees U derneathdwhaf iiam typingtinihere?

    (I didn't even type that wrong)

    Erm, that ‘random gibberish’ is Welsh.

    The buyers of our house withdrew their offer today. The offer was made on 16 November and completion was planned for next Wednesday. In a funny way, it is a relief as they've been pi**ing us about for weeks. The annoying thing is that we don't understand why - their solicitor was very guarded and eventually said something on the lines of their concern about the ongoing costs of maintenance. Our cottage is 150 years old outside and 9 years old inside - from derelict to no expense spared, we were going to stay for the rest of our lives. Their surveyor left, telling us that he could not remember going over a house that well looked after.

    So, it is back on the market and we are surrounded by boxes. The good news is that we've got a first viewing tomorrow. Just deciding where we are going away to and for how long - Cyprus or Madeira currently

    Bloody tyre kickers; probably changed their mind and were looking for an excuse. Very annoying that they messed you around for so long.

    Sometimes wonder if other countries have a better system; I believe Spain needs a 10% non-refundable deposit (aside from specified contractual conditions) when they make an 'official' offer.

    Frankly, pretty much fucking everything.

    I've damaged my knee that I've previously had surgery on
    I've been made redundant
    ... both the above mean no skiing this year, and diving is looking pretty iffy in the short term.
    My van was hit by an uninsured vehicle who's driver (and vehicle) fled the seen and is untraceable, so that's going through my insurance. In order to get it to a point where it can be repaired, I've had to strip most of the modifications out of the back of it - soul destroying and time consuming. I've now had to return the van back in to the repairer as I wasn't happy with the repair.
    As if that's not enough ... the sodding courtesy car has been keyed along the entire drivers side, which will result in another claim against my insurance (unless I sort it out without involving them)

    To say that I'm rather fed up ... :rage:
