I’m not very good at clothes shopping. My favourite pair of Levis has a hole in one of the back pockets. It’s caused by a little zip on my wallet that lives in that pocket. Over time, it’s worn it’s way through.   I decided to get a new pair of jeans so today I […]

Is it asking too much to expect people to do what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it? I ordered a part for my car on Friday. The bloke on the phone said it would be couried out to me, using an internationally well known courier […]


Enviro-mental!

21Jan15

I was left with no choice but to do something very bad for the environment on Sunday. Shopping on a Sunday afternoon is never a good idea.

Shopping on the high street is so twentieth century and let’s face it, a bit rubbish. I tried to buy a laptop computer on Saturday but the big department store I went to were out of stock of the model I wanted. It’s not an unusual make or model that I’m after, it’s the one […]
