I think I'm beyond help mate; I just can't seem to crack that low thirties barrier, so irritating...:rolleyes:

I need a large dollop of Jack's laid back attitude as it seems to stand him in good stead.

I don't get the practice like I used to when I was working at home; Do some work for a few hours followed by a couple of hours in the garden with the NJR, then a spot of lunch followed by a few more hours work, etc, etc. I used to be able to shoot for about 4 hours a day every day which makes a huge difference....:grin:

Luckily they're still at the toy stage so shoes and handbags will come later no doubt.

 

Unluckily for them when they get to the stage of being old enough and wanting stuff they will be getting Saturday jobs or not having, simple as. Sounds harsh but when I grew up if I wanted anything I had to work for it or sell something. So for instance when I went on a school trip to the Baltic on the Uganda in 1976, I had to save the £144 from washing cars, selling paintings etc and pay for it myself.

My Mother was absolutely beside herself with fury when she found out I was 'wasting' that money on a 'worthless boat trip' but I was adamant that I wanted to go and see a bit more of the World so I went. Her revenge was to swap out my clothes so instead of taking jeans etc, I was the only kid on the boat who had three changes of school uniform. Nice.

 

Still, I'm a great believer that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, so even though those times were tough they taught me to be resourceful and independent all good qualities which then benefitted me through my later teens when I finally managed to get away from home.

 

Needless to say Christmas's at that time were a very sparse affair with a chocolate orange if I was lucky....:rolleyes:

My Mum was a championship skater back in the fifties, in fact she met my Dad roller-skating when she floored him going backwards to show off, funny old World....:grin:

Took the kids roller skating for the first time last weekend and they loved it. Pretty good value as it was £6 for all day so they were well knackered after four hours falling about so result.

I’m sure that somewhere some nutter has roller-skated around the World, or could it be the last frontier ready to be broken for Holly Guinness Glory....:grin:
