Recently, my car was snapped whilst stopped on a yellow box junction in Catford. I know this because I received a Penalty Charge Notice in the post.
TfL sent me a demand for payment and two photos of my car, showing it in two different positions at two different times and taken less than 30 seconds apart. They wanted £130.00 for this privilege, making a yellow box junction one of the most expensive places to park in London. Being generous, TfL gave me the option of halving this fine by paying it within 14 days. continue reading
I’m going to share a little tip with you.
If you do grocery shopping with Sainsbury’s online, you get money off your first order as a new customer (up to £20.00). This is great.
What’s even better is that Sainsbury’s don’t appear to check your delivery address to see if you really are a new customer. continue reading
Perhaps I’m getting old or perhaps I’ve always been very boring, but something has really been getting on my tits for the last few weeks.
It’s a problem which is becoming more and more prevalent, and it drives me absolutely bonkers.
Pointless and totally unnecessary engine revving. continue reading
Sometimes, websites break or need tweaking which isn’t usually too much of an issue as long as regular backups are made. I found this out the hard way but since my previous mistake, Ninja Hedgehog is backed-up regularly and automatically. This means that in theory, I should be able to have Ninja Hedgehog back up and running very quickly should it all go tits-up. continue reading
You pop into the public toilets or the toilets at work. There are 3 or more cubicles in there… which one do you enter to do your business?
Any one which isn’t immediately next to a cubicle being used by someone already, that’s which one.
This, my friends, is toilet etiquette. continue reading
You hear about a new app and it sounds amazing, so you want to download it and sign up ASAP. You know exactly what you want as your username so you eagerly type it in before waiting for that momentary check to confirm that your chosen username is available. continue reading
I know I’m going to be criticised for this article, but if you post something publicly on social media, you accept that others will see it and will potentially criticise you or what you’ve posted. I understand and accept this myself. Facebook has an abundance of bizarre and moronic posts which can keep you entertained for hours. continue reading
You may or may not have heard about a little thing called the EU referendum. It’s no biggy; just a decision that will shape the future for us and for our children. Unless you’ve been living under a rock or in case you have been living under a rock and didn’t get to read Mother of Delightfully Horrid Boys‘ article a few days ago, you’ll know that is the one of the biggest decisions we’ll ever make. You’ll also know by now that we voted as a nation to leave the EU. continue reading
I read an article in the Daily Mirror yesterday about a woman who took her kid to the play park, only to find a couple of undesirables passed-out in an apparent drug-induced slumber. Quite understandably, the mother was outraged and angry- as would most other normal people be. Play parks aren’t the place for adults without children , alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. continue reading
Running a car is expensive and the annual costs continue to rise each year. The price of insurance and fuel is always on the up and there’s always that unexpected repair (which usually crops up at the time of the month when you have the least money or just after you’ve received your hooker invoice). continue reading
