Good morning, everyone. Weather is damp and dismal.

Moonie, good to see you were able to pop in again last night.

Squiggle, I hope your parcel arrives early this morning and you don't spend another day, hanging around waiting.

Summer, is your willpower holding out with your calorie counting? I bet it is.

El, I hope you don't have any client visits today as the forecast isn't good for being out and about.

Have a good day, everyone.

Good morning everyone, it's very windy here too EL.  They have updated the tracking info on the website to show the parcel will be delivered this afternoon between 2 and 4.  I did try ringing but usual story, kept on hold, costs a fortune to ring and no-one ever actually answers you, and of course no freephone number shown on Say no to 0870.  I shall, I suppose, do just what they want me to do, go away and don't make a fuss, as long as the parcel arrives today.

 

I hope the weather brightens up for everyone, I know the forecast down here at least is for a wet weekend

Squiggle, your parcel had better be delivered this afternoon. The delivery company doesn't seem to have a clue about customer service.

The forecast in my area is nearly as poor as yours though I think Sunday should be less bad than tomorrow. Although rain is forecast throughot tomorrow it looks as if the heaviest persistent rain is before 6am and then it's heavry showers.

I hope your major meeting goes well next week EL, sounds like a biggie.  I hope the day is treating you well moonie   Thanks Yogi, I hope so too.

 

The guy is here scarifying the lawns (I always get a mental picture of someone going boo, but that's just me )  You should see the dead stuff that's come out, I reckon they needed doing

Just had a phone call from a reporter from the local paper asking for my views on this news story today:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-27328069

Apart from hearing about it on the radio this morning I know no more about it than the rest of you so I said I didn't want to make a comment about it for publication. The reporter has been ringing other accountants in Gloucester and has yet to find any prepared to comment.

(and it was not mentioned at the tax course the other day)

My eldest son did my front lawn last year and it is much improved.

I think you are wise not to comment.

Nine bags of thatch Yogi, can you believe it - huge bin bags too, my poor lawn looks awful now but I am sure the best is yet to come.  He scarified it, aerated it and put down moss killer, so it will look worse before it looks better, the moss will all go black.

Me too, I can see endless problems with this.
