Last night I spent my evening setting up some of my Ikea specials and only after finishing the bedside cabinet did I realise that i had infact managed to put the bottom shelf in upside down. Fixing this required ripping out most of the nails on the back of the cabintet, and to be honest, after I finished mutilating it im glad it was hte back with the nails in.
Today I made yet more money on my BG. shares, im not sure when the whole thing is going to collapse though as im sure it must be overpriced by now.
Work has been the same old, got tomorrow off so I will be shifting furnature into my new place and building up the remaining flat packs ... go me!
Sarah popped round to see me last night, just to say bye, should really arrange a pissup round selby to celebrate my escape but since most of my mates are still in uni there would probably be a turnout too low to bother with. So yeah my new place is going to be right in the middle of York, it will give me easy access to reastraunts bars and pubs, not so many decent clubs but since its a train ride away from sheffield leeds manchester newcastle etc I dont forsee that being a problem.
Im fairly surprised, my new shop has just gained me SEVENTEEN WHOLE PENCE, if it wasnt for the fact that id spent £4.50 advertising it on google I would be really happy about that!
For those who havent read my previous blog - http://www.thebargainbin.co.uk - spend muchly, and if ya feelign generous just send me money, the site has dvds for upto 80% off though so its not too shoddy!
Leeds festival tickets are on sale oh so soon, anyone else off?
Last year was pretty good, Iron Maiden kicked ass pretty well, wish they had stayed on for a little longer though!
The lineup this year hasnt been released yet, there is the annual rumour of AC/DC peforming, find it pretty doubtful though! If anyone has any info please leave a comment, ild love to know what I have to look forward to this year =D
Along with the moving house another huge life changing decision has come into play, which pub wil be my new local?
a year ago this woulda been easy, Scruffies hands down, pool table cheap beer, nothing wrong. Now I have the following candidates
The Priory - Pool table, cheap booze BUT a load of townies.
The Artful Dodger - Know the staff, all kindsa people, women flashing later on BUT no pool table
The Windmill - My local after work, not much going for it! does have bullseye on the machine though! no pool table and only know one member of staff.
The Nags Head - Very Cheap, but crowded, usually a bit of trouble on saturday nights, right opposite my house though!
Brigantees - Also very close, Serves very good beer, from york breweries and forgein beers, no stuff like fosters carling etc, no hangovers in here! Downside is its f very expensive for food, and fairly expensive for drink, (Charged me 90p for a packet of crisps!)
So vote, find me a Pub!

I have just set up this new blog to pass a mundane lunch break at work, also I will be using it to plugn my new affiliate shop, so if you ever want to buy anything - http://www.thebargainbin.co.uk
So my first post, should be monumental, fantastic, and memorable to all who stumble upon it.
But im lazy,
So yeah, for all those who dont know a load of people who work for our government have been on strike because their retirement age was going to be raised to 65 (inline with the rest of us) I have to agree that the fact they can retire early is a bit of a pain in the arse, this is matched by the french who hear about a change in their law and start throwing petrol bombs at police. While not quite as subtle as our 1.5 million man march i think they encompass how upset they are in a much more graphic way. Personally a lot of the french population (especially the richer ones) Hate the british, hence why they got rid of our EU rebate dispite the fact they take way more than us out of the rebate budget, and give us sweet fck all. Im all for kicking them out till they get their ass's in gear.
On another note, the government is saying we should save more, this is pretty good froma government that has been lieing about inflation to stay in power, meaning that things keep costing more and more but our pay rises stay incredibley low, this shouldnt happen, but with easy access to credit nowdays I think the 30% increase in bankrupcies shows where the money is cmoing from to keep inflation rising. Of course the end result of this is that we have no money to buy stuff, and the economy crashes, + we have no spare money to save!.
Lets face it, whatever the government does, inflation is so high nowdays that people living with their parents till their mid 30's is not only common, but the average, who can afford to buy a house nowdays? 10 years ago a nice terrace would be £50 grand, now its £150 grand, and mortgages are emant to be three times our yearly wage? that gives me just under 40 grand for a mortgage, which should just about get mea portaloo nowdays.
Of course if the market crashes, which it inevitably will since people wont be able to afford to live, the pound will drop in value, making our good old savings worthless. Gold and silver seem to be the obvious choices to avoid this backlash, but they themselves are fairly expensive nowdays!
Anyway, back to my job, suppliers ringing me up asking why we havnt paid, then me not only pointing out that we have paid but telling them where in their system it is, providing a split and telling them where money should be, some cmopanies seem to employ people who have been around the longest, not who actually know what they are doing.
