Re: The Johnson Government 2019-202?

My wife works in a primary school, starting off as a reception teacher and working her way up to deputy head. Although there are 13 weeks she is not in school, about 3 or 4 of the 5 days of half term are used doing stuff (I don't exactly know what but it is to set up things for the next half term). ...

Re: Cost of living crisis

Trying to arrange a new mortgage fix. I've had a mortgage since 2004, and I'm pretty certain this is the first time I've taken out a new fix and the rate has gone up since then. Looking at 3.14% for 5 or 7 years, which is a lot more than the 1.89% I'd been paying since 2017. Scary times. I've just ...

Re: The Queen

Not a fan of the Royals myself, although not really against them per se but the interest in them in America is HUGE. Whether that brings in $$$ I don't know but they're a huge talking point. I think it works out about a quid per person per year being put in to their coffers, including everyone, so ...

Re: Allison Bailey

If one woman is described as a ‘CIS woman’ it’s one too many. The term was coined back in 1994 I believe, so has been around for nearly three decades, although I appreciate not as frequently used as nowadays. The problem IMO is that the science is changing/bettering our understanding of what is man...

Complete bugger all. If people are well off enough to save regularly that's a reward in itself. I have never understood the whole oh you should save to earn money on your savings. Im lucky to save and im just grateful to have that behind me rather than oh I should get extra money for no reason It's...

Re: Allison Bailey

I'm not sure if I'm way off the mark here so no offence intended, but couldn't the woman who felt offended in this case have just left when she saw there was a transwoman there? The transwoman has every right IMO to be there(?), so to ask her to leave because of one person would seem rather harsh. I...

If nothing else for the SNP it will establish 8 years as the once in a generation number for re-running referendums
They do have kids young up there though.

Re: Little things in life that make you smile

8lb 4oz :shock: I bet that made her eyes water! Congratulations! It sounds like you'll be a brilliant grandad. It's quite amazing how it all works, even knowing the biology side it is absolutely mental watching it 'live'. Our boy born last August was 9lb 12oz, looked like an effin toddler waltzing ...

Re: Gareth Bale signs for Los Angeles fc [non WHU]

What a player in his prime, was almost a one man team in some games. I don't get the hate for him, he prefers golf to football, so what. Real Madrid is a club in a world of its own. I can't remember what game it was but I think it was bale involved, scored two goals but missed a sitter for a hat tri...

Re: Little things in life that make you smile

Not to take away from DL's fantastic news, but got an email today from the solicitor sorting our 10 year fixed mortgage, saying they will be paying us just shy of 2 grand for the difference. Should all complete on Friday. Then we get 500 quid cashback (no idea yet how I claim that though). Was half ...

Daughters? Bloody hell my Mrs still does it! Same here, drives me potty! She leaves the TV on when she goes out. It's annoying hearing it when I'm working upstairs as it's faint enough that I'm not entirely sure until I check, but more annoying is when she has casted Netflix or something so when sh...

I liked him, thought he did a cracking job with the resources afforded to and agree with some others that he didn't get the credit from a portion of our fans that he deserved. Given the squad he had to work with and the budgets available to get players in, there was always going to be a limitation o...

Re: Little things that irritate you

I had that picture in a frame when I was about 16. Bought it from Ikea for about a tenner.

Always liked it for some reason (the picture, not Ikea).
