Re: My First Steinhart Has Arrived....

Thanks Neil, I would probably have paid the £7450 for an LV if you could actually just go and buy one!!

Re: My First Steinhart Has Arrived....

I have not been here for a while since the whole Corona thing prompted me to opt out of all forms of media as it was irritating me beyond belief.......

Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

It is difficult to see too much good in this situation, especially as we are being urged to avoid company rather than seek solace in it. One possible benefit is time. Time to reflect and to address some of the things that perhaps we neglect or brush under the carpet when we are very busy. We are th...

Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

Started new job on Monday ( after just under 2 years of early retirement I was getting a bit bored and needed to widen my horizons ) and completed day 1 which was mostly admin.
