    ...those bloody adverts on TV this week are so bad! Fathers Day is approaching and advertisers think it is a licence to tell children that dad will really want all kinds of crap - no!

    I do not want any compilation CDs of rubbish music I have never heard of, nor a DVD of motorsport crashes, nor a DVD of Ewan McGregor riding his motorbike, nor a book about cars, etc, etc

    All I want is left in peace...:biggrin:;):sad:
    (which is good as I will not be at home as I am away cycling)

    I'll be doing the L2b like usual.
    I don't want any tat either... and as most of my family hate me most of the time, the day is likely to pass unnoticed.


    Mothers day, Fathers day, Valentines day... It's all bollocks really from the bloody greetings card industry colluding with florists. Bugger-em!

    Unless I get peace, a few beers and a pie or two I would agree. :sad:

    True, True.

    Hang-on... what about beer and hairy pie?





























    second thoughts... beer and pie's just fine.

    And a beer and a pie will cost less than a card! :biggrin:

    I'll suggest to Mrs Noodley that I am being pro-active in 'saving money' and she should dispense of a card in favour of a beer and pies...:biggrin::tongue::becool::sad:
