    I ordered mine (silver proof)and got the order confirmation at 10.10am and got a dispatch notification yesterday afternoon so I would have thought you would have had yours notification before me. Cheers DK

    Lets talk watches!

    I paid £640 for a GMT Master II, but it came back like new, anything goes wrong within 2yrs you are covered. Cheers DK
  4. We go through periods where we look at potential savings, in the last 12 months we made a couple of changes: Binned Virgin, £75pm, accountant told us we could claim internet through the business from home, so saved from the household bills (although a smaller bill still needs to be paid via the company), we then got Netflix at £9.99pm and I have to say I am pretty impressed, wish I hadn't given my password to half the family though! We have been in our house for 5yrs now and haven't got a reason to move, so we installed Solar, just over £5,000 for a 4.4KW system, been in 10 months and on average saved us 60% on bills (we set the timers on the Washing machine and dishwasher to take full advantage) Our local M&S does the reduced food around 6.45/7pm so always have a look if we are passing and freeze any suitable purchases. I dont buy in lunch, just make a sarnie or nuke a soup I also like my wine, I tend to prefer St Emilion (£8-£12) or Chateauneuf-du-pap (£13-£20), but this is more a request for Bday/Chrimbo pressies, I dont drink as much as you so lasts me a good few months.....If I do find myself short I can always buy decent wine for "clients"...... Cheers DK

    Yeah seen that. I got an e mail from the Royal Mint saying they have received my order (for the silver proof) but it is subject to availability, this was 10.10am, took me from 9am just to get that far.

    Thought this was a good price....till I realised its not for the Silver proof set! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Celebrating-50-Years-Of-The-50p-2019-Kew-Gardens-Set-PREORDER/303029204427?hash=item468df2b5cb:g:zy0AAOSw6PxcPGM2:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true Cheers DK
  7. As others have said pay the mortgage. I was fortunate enough to be mortgage free by the age of 36 (now 42), I cannot stress enough how different I looked at life knowing that I didn't have the monthly repayment. Everyone is different and I obviously don't know your circumstances, your job security/transferable skills etc. I had my first mortgage at 18, got repossessed at 21 so had a huge incentive to get rid of my mortgage, really didn't want to go through that again! Cheers Dk
  8. Worst Car VW Scirocco 1991, really liked the look of the car, that's about all it had going for it, nothing really worked, even turning the ignition off the car kept going.....I had to rev it all the way then turn the key off, bizarre! Best Car, Toyota Soarer imported from Japan, 4l V8 goodness, only sold it because I had to remortgage everytime i passed a petrol station, in 3yrs of ownership only had to change the wipers.
  9. Don't often took at my change to be honest, but got £2 change today... Cheers DK

    Today I Received.....

    Picked up my group order from @BackyardBullion this afternoon. Also ordered one of his Seahorses and took advantage of his Intermediary Service to get a a couple of 1/2 oz tiger sharks that seem to be sold out everywhere. As ever very well packaged. Thanks DK
