Alright you 'orrible lot. Whats been happening since I was last here? Anything interesting?

Me? More surgery, changed car and what else was it........ Oh yes, I won the UK lottery - seriously. Still in shock. Bank manager was most amused when I told him.:D

ps... I will try not to be so grumpy this time on here - can't promise though but will try to be on my best behaviour.

Thanks guys. The amount on the lottery is something I had better not disclose for fear of being inundated with begging letters, lets just say I was very pleased indeed. It is a heart stopping moment when you start checking and one by one you realise you have them.

Surgery was on my spine again. oldtimers on here will know what it was all about. Anyway, still in pain but that is usual for me. Getting about on a mobility scooter for now as the old hip has gone too.

Huge VO project I am involved with at the moment. Major production, 26 part documentary and I am doing the main VO for it. Hard graft and involves a lot of travelling to Central London for sessions 3 times a week at the moment. 1,370 pages of script!

Thanks. Yep, the bank manager was most amused after giving me a cup of tea and a custard cream AND his own leather chair when I said I wanted to pay in my lottery win. When I pulled the crisp 10 from my pocket he suddenly had a sense of humour bypass and I was unceremoniously escorted from his office.

I did enjoy that as they had ripped me off for years. I actually went in to close the account, but as I had 3 numbers on the Saturday (and yes, they were the first three to come out) I was in the mood for some fun.

Work is draining, but profitable.

Radio station? With 10? Don't be silly Arthur. Some people!:D

Hope 2010 is good for you too.

ps people. I never said it was a lot of money. I am still a lottery winner.:P

Hey Fin, I never said we could do it for a tenner, I'll throw f a fiver in too, and all I won was a cold for Xmas!!!

I too have been thrown out of my bank!!! They decided to charge me for keeping the deeds for a 2,000 overdraft facility!!! You can imagine what I told 'em to do with their 4.75 a month charge......... bleedin' Wan**rs!

Look after yerself Fin, us ol' sodz need some warmer weather to make life a little less achy!!! ;-)

My advice is still the same, dont spend it all in one shop. You can have that advice for free.;)
