I gave A neg for years over 70 donations then received a letter saying last donation failed 'non-specific' failure. Do not worry your doctor it was probably our testing chemicals but don't come back.  >>:-(


I do other related stuff to help medical research now.  :-))

I'm ashamed to say I've never given blood except for the 46 yrs at work. I'll look into it  :-))  and big hats off to you.
Having not worked the last 5 weeks anyway and now officially finished I've noticed a significant reduction in overheads. Changing to a Euro6 Berlingo from a 10 year old petrol Berlingo means I'm not even using a tank of diesel per month. Last two weeks has gone from full tank to 3/4 if that continues it could be near two months per refill.
I'm busier modelling than ever as the jobs people find me to do are getting less thankfully.
Looking forwards to the travelling this year without time constraints

That was the sowing of the seed that is now reality  :-))
Pretty sure I've signed off completely from work now. The pin money was nice but life is too short.The bonus is I don't have to consider getting up in the morning anymore and if I'm inspired I can play all night

Perplexed but quids in
Just received a letter and a revised P60 for tax year 16/17 from my Pension fund.
Following a review of tax deducted from customers they realised they did not take any tax of my personal allowance draw down that year. So they have paid HMRC £3,500 on my behalf at no cost to me as it was their mistake. I don't know how they arrived at that figure as it ought to have been 20% if anything at all but its almost 32%
On HMRC website it acknowledges receipt of this money last December but it is too late to revise my self assessment now so I've had to write a letter for "overpayment relief"  :-)

FYI
"Overpayment relief" as subject title will get your claim processed with more priority than other types of correspondence.


Always make a declaration that the above is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and sign it! if you ever need to deal with them

Am I the only one who thinks his memory is getting worse ?
How many times have I gone upstairs and forgotten what I went for  %%
This morning with my coffee in the space of only 10 minutes I could not remember if Iíd taken my tablet or not despite having them in front of me  :embarrassed:
Anyway Iím posting to encourage the use of Apps to make life easier and remind me of things
A most useful one Iíve been using is called ďvehicle smartĒ
In this you add all your vehicles details and it reminds you of important events.
I currently have 3 in the app garage but could add my family members vehicles too
It updates via WiFi when you have passed an mot or renewed road tax all by itself too

I have a simple rule - 1 place for 1 thing, every day the items I carry are always left in the same place to reduce 'losing them', although there is the odd day where circumstances screw that up, in the wife's case she is always losing things and she is 9 years younger than me and should have no excuse.

Strangely late Sunday afternoons I still get the occasional flashback to when I'd be thinking it's work tomorrow  <:( <:(

Ever tried to find a working Biro?
If I manage that, I've usually forgotten what I wanted it for.  Or lost whatever it was I was going to write on.

Retired on Friday following working part-time for 4 years. Tomorrow would be my first working day of the week and it will be great waking up and thinking that I won't have to do the 20 miles each way commute and being stuck in traffic which has got worse year on year.

I enjoyed work though but the time has come to leave it behind and have more time for my wife, interests and hobbies etc.

Thanks Andy. Work up early but didn't get up until later. Had a look at what next to do on my Fairey Huntsman 28 build and will do a bit later. I can get used to this!
