Rang virgin yesterday to cancel my dongle and mobile phone,unusually helpful both cancelled no problem and the guy sold me a sim only deal on a 30 day contract £5.99 a month not much actual credit just 50 min 50 texts 250mb Internet which is ok as its just a another phone on a different network for camping the main benefit is it also has the 3000 virgin to virgin min and Nancys daughter is on virgin so free chatting.

The internet wouldn't connect so rang back today and it just needed a reboot,what i found funny was the options when i rang virgin you know the press 1 for this 2 for that it was 6 that made me laugh press 6 if your phone isn't working lol!

Bit of over kill maybe but we have 3 mobiles covering 4 networks,bet i still dont get a signal in Norfolk

Today I can confirm that Molly is self healing. I've not driven her for two weeks due to lack of fuel, and today we filled her tank ready for our trip on Saturday, and her oil light now works, it's not worked since we bought her nearly 7 years ago. Shocked

She must have the dogs magic vibes, or has our luck turned cheers cheers cheers

Back from Dent

Lots to report but lots to catch up on as well.

Was going to post stuff but as well as no phone signal forgot the charger for the laptop, so WIFI in pub (only reason I went in honest) wasn't a lot of use.
Knackered, a bit ill and supposedly of to Goodwood Wed AM. May need a while to catch up.

Yesterday went from one end of the spectrum to the other in less than five minutes ........ son was told he had landed a dream job, double his current wage and he gets to travel abroad regularly. He wasn't looking for a job but someone he had dealt with through work asked him to come in for an interview and within two days has been offered the position. cheers

Daughter telephoned just after I put the phone down to say hubby had just received a letter to say that 'we will keep you on file' and that was after two interviews so hopes were built up again. Sad
Over three hundred applications and only a few even bother to reply.

I got a 3(three) 3GB preloaded dongle, I have 3 months to use up the allowance which I don't think I'll find hard. I can then top it up but as it cost less than the 3GB would normally cost from 3 I will probably just buy another if I'm happy with how it performs.

We would just like to say The twitter thread - Page 24 115684958 to Cazz and W for picking up a sink / cooker unit for us after we won it on fleabay and taking it to the Woodhall meet. We would also like to say The twitter thread - Page 24 115684958 to Eilis for then ferrying it back to us.

We hope to now soon start building a kitchen unit for our new Dandy 6 that we got a few weeks ago. The twitter thread - Page 24 2792229418

Arrived at Goodwood and the variable phone link for the computer is working. Well had to be re fired up three times.
This time last year 40% full at best on the campsite. This year 85/90% full.
Try to take plenty of pics this time and post daily.
Will help the insomniacs with sleep if nothing else.

It is going to cool down over the next day or so, we have thunderstorms forecast for today so it should lighten the air a little. Hope your day improves Eilis.

Would like to say thank you to a very special friend - thank you so much for what you did today - many would have walked away and I'm glad we share the same views....You are a star!

So.....I have spent the day rolling around on the floor either being a victim or treating a victim....Lets hope its not all in vain and I will pass the assessment tomorrow.
Doing the course has really opened my eyes how easy it is to actually save someones life or even just help them hang on long enough for the emergency service to arrive.
Definitely something everyone should think about I reckon....

Baring Helen I imagine you have all wussed out of camping this weekend.
So what are you all doing then?
Admittedly the weekend starts here as a TV programme used to say at this time on Fridays and you might be doing something now that is more fun than tryping on here.
If however you can spare a minute or two do say what you have planned.
It seems awfully quiet I expect a hotbed of camping, buying or modding projects at this time of year.
Has the rain put everyone off everything?

Mr Itch, we would normally be away what ever the weather, but we've been invited to a Birthday party on Sunday. The twitter thread - Page 24 1394192591 Playing in the soft play is optional though, I think I might pass on that. lol!
