Bastard ...

Lawlsie - 19 Jul 2020 15:20:06 (#4861 of 4879)

Did you enjoy having it done Fleur?

Tagyourit - 19 Jul 2020 15:24:37 (#4862 of 4879)

LadyTag is booked in for Wednesday, to say she's looking forward to it would be a massive understatement.

Oh God, yes! First my colour - goodbye grey roots - then the cut!

My hairdresser says she’s really enjoying her job at present, as everyone’s so grateful!

Lawlsie - 19 Jul 2020 15:57:46 (#4864 of 4879)

Awwww that’s great. Had mine done couple of weeks ago but want to go back now just for a wash and blow. It so lifts the spirit.

Happy new year to the real CMM thread!

Merry new year!

Hey money mad mates. I finally get my state pension next year! Can't come soon enough. I am exhausted! Been in some kind of paid employment since I had my first Saturday job at the age of 14. Worked continuously since then even when I was at college tho I got a full grant.

TauCeti - 02 Jan 2021 16:50:07 (#4868 of 4879)

Happy New year Lawlsie retired and healthy.

Lawlsie - 03 Jan 2021 09:35:55 (#4869 of 4879)

Thanks and to you and yours

Problems with the Revenue self-assessment screen - the button for "Start Here" doesn't work on Firefox browser, so had to go in again on MS explorer. Eventually got it working. Yes, it's that time of year again.

LemonGrass - 08 Jan 2021 18:01:41 (#4871 of 4879)

If you need any help then I’ll charge mates rates.

HerrWalrus - 08 Jan 2021 18:03:19 (#4872 of 4879)

If you need any help then I’ll charge mates rates.

That's why I always get this done in advance - so I don't get forced to miss deadlines by dodgy web browser issues etc. Get it done!

TauCeti - 08 Jan 2021 19:18:03 (#4873 of 4879)

I've been trying to do the Settle Status thing half a dozen times through half a dozen years, and got nowhere. Every time they ask for a special number they haven't given me. I find this annoying to say the least; must be them 'bots roaming (charging) the internet and doing things. Will end up having to spend a dozen quid + postage to sort this out, or the Capitalist in charge will kick me out of the country.

Actually... now that I think of that... mh.

LemonGrass - 08 Jan 2021 23:29:23 (#4874 of 4879)

HerrWalrus, thining about it, you could have got away without paying me. I haven't been further than a mile since February!

HerrWalrus - 14 Jan 2022 17:26:17 (#4875 of 4879)

Ooohhh, I'm getting later each year at doing this (the tax self-assessment screen).

It seems a tad easier this year - fewer strange questions like "Do you qualify for fishing tackle relief on nets bought between 1887 and 1976?" And they've worked out how to link to your paye earnings automatically.

Lawlsie - 14 Jan 2022 19:33:57 (#4876 of 4879)

They've given us more time this year

Lawlsie - 20 Apr 2022 15:37:56 (#4877 of 4879)

Well hello thread. I'm now a pensioner!!! Got my first payment today. A partial one. Get the first full one in four weeks. And get this, because it's paid every four weeks rather than per calendar month you get one month a year when you get paid twice! That month is November this year. Double bubble right before Christmas. Pension paid at beginning and end of the month oh if only was same every month. Still, it's nice to finally get my pension.

I've only been working for 50 years without any breaks so really it was about effing time! Still working though. Which feels very odd. Also I'm now officially an OAP. Which feels even odder.

I shalln't be going for a bus pass on account I never use buses as there aren't any here so far as am aware. But could be useful if I ever go back to ThatLondon.

Congratulations Lawlsie. I presume you'll now be voting Conservative too?

Lawlsie - 20 Apr 2022 15:52:40 (#4879 of 4879)

But of course! And getting a blue rinse.

Speaking of blue rinses... did you see that Sybil Ralphs, former leader of SMDC, now 80 - EIGHTY! - and been treating it like her personal fiefdom for 16 years has finally be ousted! By her own party. Couldn't come soon enough. So many of us have had enough of her mini me Thatcher tribute act.
