Tf Hell

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

Home Shopping Win

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

Technical Issues. Possibly.

Technical ResponseSometimes, 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

Monkeying Around

FuckoffI 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

Fuck EU

ReferendumYou 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

Angry and Outraged

 

SmileI 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

Insuring You Get Caught

HeadlightRunning 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
