Barnet,
Morning all, touch of frost outside. A nice walk with the dog shortly and then a few domestics to do. I bought some vintage black bluemells mudguards to go on my 42 year old Falcon bike, so that will be a little job fitting those this afternoon.
The heavy rain is due this evening followed by the winds, the fields around here are saturated and are not draining. The water table must be very high,, I'm glad I live on a hill.🚣‍♀️

Morning all. :hello:

Yay...its Fish Friday! :hungry::cheers:

Checked my state pension forecast on Gov.UK yesterday.
Think I'm going to buy some missing years of NI contributions since I retired early. Did the figures and it seems like a no brainer as far as return on investment goes. Will double check over the weekend and sort it out on Monday.

I'm hopeless with financial stuff. I paid NI contributions for 34 years. I presume that is enough for the full pension?

Just googled it. Seems to be 35 you need. I had just over 34 so shouldn't make much difference.
