Last night I left work at about 5:30. Because of a crash and bad weather on the M62, I got home at 7:15. It usually takes about 45 mins. Watched the football but also had to help the little guy with his homework throughout and so didn't really watch the game. Then spent some time trying (without any joy) to fix my PC. At 11pm I went to iron a shirt for today. Plugged the iron in and about 30secs after I did all the sockets went off. So had to fumble about in the garage to get them back on. Then at 11:15pm had to set off to a 24 hour asda to buy a new iron. Ironed the shirt and then went to switch off the tv. It was then I noticed that my HD box was no longer getting a signal. Checked the cables and eventually swapped it with the Sky + box. It gets a signal fine. Went through all the usuall steps of doing a reset, checking the LMB things and reinstalling the software backl onto the box with no joy. Best of all I bought the box off a sky engineer on the cheap, so I doubt very much that sky are going to want to have anything to do with it.

Had a shower and went to bed at 1am, ready for my next 6:30am start.

I had a mixed day. I caused a huge tailback on the M62 when my Porsche skidded, but luckily some dopey git dropped £40, which paid for a night down the pub. :banana:

Buddy,
Lack of investment.

Buy a GPS Nav and traffic indicator.

Only buy easy-care shirts and pants, cool wash and drip dry, no ironing. When I am in a hotel I wash the shirt and it is dry and ready for use next day.

Organize your wallet.

A few things

"Buy a GPS Nav and traffic indicator."

I have GPS but there are not a huge number of alternatives going from Leeds to Rochdale. All involve a trip over the Pennines on cr@ppy roads and in the rain showers last night, not something I was keen on.

"Only buy easy-care shirts and pants, cool wash and drip dry, no ironing. When I am in a hotel I wash the shirt and it is dry and ready for use next day."

I only buy non iron shirts, but they don't seem to work - I wasn't really expecting for the iron to give up on me - but then who does.

"Organize your wallet. "

Agreed, but it's a bad habit that I have of just stffing my cash in my pocket.

"£40 for lunch?!!! WTF are you eating?!"

I wasn't expecting to eat through it in one sitting! I took £50 out for spends through the week. It could have been 30 actually - not sure on that.

But my SKY HD has kicked back into life so that's good and I've finally fixed this bleedin computer, so that is good also.

"she let me do the full monty"

I hope you used the curtains correctly on the way out!

You can always rely on Billy-Bob for straight talkin', no nonsense advice..:D

Apart from that - my sympathies, Tony. Sometimes you just need to let someone else know that occasionally life sucks...

Buy the lottery
The last winner was made redundant and won the lottery the next day

... woke up - fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up - I noticed I was late ...

Found my coat - grabbed my hat
Made the bus - in seconds flat ...
