    It makes me sad too but needs must. It is proving harder then I thought to find a job round my way that pays ok and Is what I want to do so as our monthly fuel bill is around £500 it makes sense to try and bring this down a bit. A derv each will help a lot.

    Yeah it will! £500 is a lot of cash each month for fuel alone! Plus other maintenance costs.

    Do you need the cash from the car or can't you garage it up and wait until you hopefully have a job closer to home?

    The lads at my old work have placed bets as to how long it is before I sell my S3 in favour of something derv... Can't imagine it happening any time soon, but then my commute is only 35 miles per day, so nowhere nears yours Westy... Can't say I'd be overly happy paying £500 a month in fuel. Fingers crossed you find a suitable job locally soon so you don't need to get rid of your S3. :)

    I'll swap with leigh.
    He seems to do bugger all, even less than me.

    But then Dave's job might be a bit more interesting even though it would be busy.

    Jay, I'm like that every day mate.

    nothing interesting happening on the weekend lads?

    Management guys. Looks like I'm doing nothing but in reality I'm doing loads keeping my team of well oiled cogs working as they should.

    I went out to a party on Saturday. All the way down in borehamwood and dressed like fat Rambo.

    Westicals, what derv you after?

    The rain and the wind was back this morning.
    Made for a interesting ferry trip.
    When its like this in the morning it really makes me question my idea of riding to work.

    Hows everyone?
    Good weather?
    Good feelings?
    Happy days?

    Lovely!!

    Scott, you won't need to cycle every day though right? If you have the car surely you can drive on days like these? When I commuted to work the average day for weather was nothing like this. One year I went a month in winter without it raining, this year is just particularly poo.

    Poo weather, good mood, but tired.

    Frikin auto correct!

    Just watched the Robocop reboot, wasn't a bad film in all honesty! :gun2:

    No. it was good, not brilliant, but watchable. I enjoyed it, it's not a patch on the original, probably because it's just not an original story. Ending is a bit weak though, preferred the original ending than this one.
