@zain611 good luck on the training. Unfortunately you've started a bit too late for me otherwise I could have been your first customer :laugh: .

I exchanged on my flat on Friday and the legal completion is now set for the 30th October. Need to sort out plenty of things for the end of the month now.

Thanks zico and no worries 👍. Yeah it looks like a good job and pay seems better compared to me working as a scientist. The main struggle is getting a trainee job. Trainee mortgage advisor roles there are a good amount in London which is good compared to trainee biomeds which only pop up once a month. Hopefully my degree and masters helps even though it's not in finance.

 

Also waiting for a dry day to install these 8000k HIDs. These are brighter than the LEDs

I do like that after this Christmas everyone will have experienced an awkward Christmas in there lives;

Meaning myself and plenty of others will no longer feel unique for not really enjoying the season 100% as other years family which could be there didn't want to be; this year they most likely won't be able to be there either way. Which is easier and everyone understands the feeling of absence at a time where the media hypes it up with the impression that all families come together and get along all of the time. 

All said though; Christmas is a very important time for children everywhere; 

Every family in the world has been affected by covid19 in some way this year; hard working people have been stopped working aswell as those always seeking employment, people won't ask for help and kids will be writing there dreams to Santa, 

Santa needs to wear superman's Cape this year to help ease the impact of covid19 in the homes of children which will also help mental health and future development as it is very important to know that Santa understands and cares, 

Personally; I'm lucky to have maintained employment throughout the pandemic as I'm manufacturing active pharmaceutical ingredients and were lucky to be manufacturing some of those which are being used in the development of vaccines,

However myself and my family are not immune from covid19 or its impact; I've had to prepare the home with an additional computer and two desks to facilitate our three kids learning from home, aswell as providing good quality Personal protective equipment,

I have a mortgage and the usual bills associated with family,

However this year rather than treating myself to some designer cloths or a new gadget I'm donating €700 worth of toys to a local toy bank; for distribution to families in the local area.

Few popular examples: LOL, fail fix dolls, Rainbow High dolls, hot wheels monster jam, Lego, nerf guns, playdough, 

And I'm writing this message to those whom perhaps don't have any kids themselves; in which case they may not think of doing such thing; 

I don't donate money as it may not reach the target; I'm encouraging everyone to purchase some toys and donate them to the Christmas toy collection box in your local supermarket or toy shop; 

They will then be bagged and delivered to hard working families which have found themselves in need for the first time in there lives through no fault of there own in your community.

Thought I'd share the idea, I have my three kids involved; I've told them:

when the toy banks start; were going to the shop to fill a trolley and help Santa because some elves are in self isolation this year; as result they can't go to the shops for santa to gather orders, so we're going to fill a trolley and put it in the shipping box which then goes to Santa's warehouse for processing to the order lists,

I'll pay in the shop with my bank card and send Santa a picture of the reciept; he then refunds my bank account, 

Thanks for reading; help future generations from some of the covid19 impact if you can.

I do like getting a message on Messenger last night 2 hours after I had started ripping our old washing machine to pieces asking if it was still for sale! 😃

 

I had it for sale on Facebook for £20, no-one enquired after a couple of days so I got stuck into it. 

 

The finished article 🔥🍻😎😃

😃😃😃 Quite impressed on how long that ran for! Took me longer to remove the drum the normal way 😆 mind you it took me even longer to get the steel drum away from the plastic drum! Looked like the plastic was moulded onto the shaft and had to be cut away with an angle grinder!

When sister takes a picture of me 😂. Just was checking the headlights to see how bright the HIDs are compared to the LED. Definitely can see the beam on the HID when the LED beam is faint in the day.

I do like booking the Volvo in for a new set of rear tyres!  The closest match to the fronts (Pirelli P2000) I could find was the Pirelli P4 Cinturato, so we shall see how that does.  The front ones are next on my list but as they still have over 6mm of treads and cash ain't exactly abundant they are still safe for now.  Hopefully the P4s will impress me in the rear (oh matron!) and I will get a couple fitted to the front too.

I do like ordering £1450 of merchandise from an online store and using a 25% discount code to bring the cost to under £1100.
I ordered Friday night as the code was due to expire on Sunday and according to the tracking information, it was all picked and packed Saturday morning. 
There's a separate post in the things I don't like section relating to this order. 

Update: It seems that only 21 of the 75 items have been shipped out so there will be more deliveries due at a later date

It was a very good deal and apparently they gave me the discount due to being one of their best customers.

Watchdogs Legion does look good. My nephew wants it as it's set in London and he played the other Watchdogs games but he also wants Crash too. 
There aren't many PS5 releases coming up yet but at least PS4 games will be playable on the PS5 (when I get one).
