    I also bought 100 quids worth around 12 years ago with the idea that if I won anything I would invest more. 12 years and absolutely nothing :blush:

    Spent an entertaining 30 minutes pulling stuff out of the loft storage cupboards - under the eaves - to get all the Christmas decorations out.

    Morning all, wet and windy here this morning .after a breakfast of fruit and Greek yoghurt I shall be out with the dog for a couple of hours and then I am meeting my son in the local burrito shack for lunch. Then maybe a couple of pints whilst waiting for the weather to die down.
    I was going to put a new layer of felt on the shed roof as the summer temperatures seem to of made the felt permeable and the shed has small puddles forming. There are no rips or tares visible. But that will now be a job for tomorrow.

    On a different note, has anyone else here ever done jury service? I got called some months ago and have to be at the Royal Courts of justice in the Strand on Monday morning. I'm looking forward to it.

    I did it years ago in Birmingham. Quite boring, interspersed with interest when i was called into a case. Aother boring time spent doing nothing after the case, then another short case. I spent more time in a room with a lot of other people doing nothing. Might be ok if you have an interesting case.

    Good Morning. Very windy here but little rain. The high winds (40+) we had forecast at 10.00 are now not due till 18.00 but lasting till Saturday evening. It's going to pee down as well. :angry:

    My garage roof is leaking. That's a big problem as it's slate and I can only get up there in the dry.
