I’m just wondering how God communicates these plans to everyone👍

I think that there are signs, to be honest I would say that everyone is so wrapped up in themselves, being their own gods, to actually have the spiritual capacity to notice them or even understand that there is god that has left them.

We all have free will to choose a path to travel on but IMO god sees every path and knows where they lead. If we believe god has a plan for us then every choice we make leads to the same path eventually, it is where we end up that counts not what is in between.

Had some tool in a bronze coloured, 20 plate Suzuki Swift go flying past me on the inside lane this evening while I was going 70 in my work car. He shortly slammed the anchors on due to two cars in fr

That’s intriguing especially on a Sunday.But then I still don’t buy it.Each to their own What amazes me, is that all the different religions of the world; all man made and they all think they are right.👍

My electric bill's so expensive because everything's broken here. Inefficient electric heating that costs a huge amount to run but doesn't actually warm the rooms.  Overnight storage heater in the bathroom which is freezing by the evening and even on full whack only managed to get the bathroom to 16c max during the cold snap.  Windows and doors that might as well be left open for all the good closing them does. Broken cooker that seems to put more heat into the kitchen than the food so has to be on for longer than it should.  And I'm not allowed to change to a cheaper company either.

Seeing as this is the the don't like thread...  I don't like that I still can't find any understanding landlords after 6 months trying...  I've got more than enough income to afford a more suitable place now but they just don't want people like me in thier properties and keep coming up with more excuses and loopholes to keep us out.

It's so frustrating as being here is making my health worse...and the only hope I've been clinging on to is moving somewhere more suitable.  But it just doesn't seem likely at all now. :sad:

 

 

If you have 'more than enough income' then why not buy your own place? No broken windows, heating that works, a cooker that works....all pretty standard.

It's not possible to get a mortgage with my circumstances unfortunately, renting is the only option I have currently.

I wouldn't say those things are standard though.  When I was at school my parents owned our house but we had single glazed rotting wooden windows with and aging night storage heaters that never worked properly.  We lived there over 13 years before Mum could afford to have uPVC double glazing put in...  Must admit, I've been surprised by just how many places still have single glazed wooden windows now...not talking about tiny studio flats either, suburban 2 bed terraces demanding £800pcm+!

Those overnight storage heaters are expensive and rubbish.My advice is to turn them off.Keep one room warm that you use the most.There are some economical ceramic heaters that you can buy to heat one room up.Don’t laugh, buy a sleeping bag or blankets to keep you warm as well.Then like you said keep searching for a better place.Sounds like a nightmare.You have to think about all the positive things that are going on in your life otherwise you go crazy.👍

I dont know what 'circumstances' you refer to of course, but if all these things dont work or are broken then at least you wouldnt be waiting for someone else to fix them if you had your own place is what I mean and is pretty standard.

If not, just rent somewhere better?

Bathroom is 22c this morning now the weather has warmed up, was only 16c during the snow...what use is a heater that only works when it's already warm! :laugh:  Obviously no other choice in a bathroom though, can't really trail an extension lead through there.  Heated towel rail might have been a better idea but a fan heater with a pull cord to use as and when needed would have been the ideal choice originally I reckon.

I have a convector in the living room which I use in the evenings (storage heater hasn't work for over 12 months in there) but that's what rinses through electric.  Soon as it's turned off the room gets cold again as it only heats the air.

As sad as it sounds there really isn't much positive in my life at moment...music and FOC forum is about it lol!

Perfectly fine to have an extension lead in a bathroom. Go for it!

As far as 'sounding sad' about your life...it could be worse, you could be dead.

Yes, that's a fair point and I totally agree.  The cooker for instance - I could go on AO.com right now, order one to be delivered and connected within the next couple of days, and then that'd be sorted and I'd have total control of the warranty if any repairs were needed.  Last time I had a new cooker fitted through the agency they spent weeks messing me around, sending people in trying to repair it etc before finally fitting a new one - exactly the same model as the previous one (and the one before that!).  Of course, that one broke again quickly because it's just cheap, low quality rubbish.  I've tried explaining that I have to rely on it every day - can't eat out or get takeways or microwave meals so it gets much more use and will inevitably break much sooner than the same appliance in the other flats.

As I said in the earlier post, I've spent over 6 months trying to rent somewhere better but my circumstances mean I'm tarred with the same brush as those that wreck properties or fail to pay the rent.  (For reference, I've never missed a payment, been in debt or damaged anything).  Despite a change in discrimination law last year there are still so many ways around it for them, leaving few options for us.

That wouldn't be worse for me.  And it wouldn't be worse for all the people I burden either.  Or those of which I'm taking funds and resources with no future prospects...  I won't take that particular topic any further on a public forum though. :smile:

I positively do not like the people going around stealing our wheelie bins, this is the second one that has gone missing in a year. It might not be so bad except the council expect you to pay for the wheelie bins.😬

Well funny thing is our bin had numbers on it too but it seems even that is no deterrent for the dumba*ses around here.

I would like to say we don’t own it but unfortunately when you are forced to pay over £100 for one when it goes walkies, you most definitely do own it in that case. The next one that comes will have a gps device hidden in it.

Wow, what a day we have had here. We discovered we had our bin nicked and now at 3:30 am I have found someone has gained access to my credit card details. 3 transactions have already gone through, including two transactions through paypal, and a netflix subscription. A £65 transaction for next was blocked.

Unscrupulous individuals will get what is, over duly, coming to them. I mean how can they think they can get away with things when it can so easily be tracked. Talk about dumb criminals, I hope they enjoy their time in prison, because that is where they will be going for quite some time.

Hopefully the bank will give you back the money. My grandad some time back was at a ATM machine and I think he had trouble with it not taking his card out. This couple came up to him saying he needs to put his date of birth in which didn't work so he went into the bank just next door then realised after he got out the card was gone. Very likely the couple took it. Had £1000 taken out his account but luckily the bank gave that back to him. Sadly there's lowlifes out there. 

Funnily you mentioned about the Wheely bin. My grandparents had a recycling bin left outside their house. Realised their recycling bin was already there so just left it on the side. Yesterday the bin was still there so it's owner hasn't got it back yet

It was actually a recycling wheelie bin that went walkies, should have mentioned that.

I can leave my car keys in the ignition with the car door wide open around here and it wouldn't get a second look. In fact, a neighbour would remove the keys... lock it up and post them through my letterbox. 

 

Is ghetto if bin stolen 😛🥰🤣😅🤣🤣🤪😘
