We insure Ronnie for less than £100 a year. His flea treatment costs us more than his insurance does. 8]

My son paid over £50 for eyedrops only to find out they're the same as human eye drops which cost a couple of quid in chemists.

As you may know I have until recently had one of my ex racers at home.

I know compared to “normal” pet dogs it may be slightly different but I’ve heard that many tales about Greyhound owners taking out insurance, happy to take money for years, and then when a bill came about they were claiming it was linked to a previous race injury etc.

I’m not surprised she’s feeling sorry for herself. It’s all happened so quickly for her. I hope she gets used to it fairly soon.

Is she scratching it much? I wouldn’t think there was much you could do to prevent it. A cone wouldn’t work, would it?

Yeah she has a cone on kenners, she has to keep it on for a couple of days. I've not seen any sign of her wanting to scratch it.
I took her into the spare room with me last night, she was out like a light.

Got up early this morning, took the cone off so she could get to her water.
Already starting to come to life. :thumbs

Bless her. I’ve never liked the cones for dogs. Our dobe couldn’t walk through a doorway without clattering it when she had one on. :lol

Agreed Fenners. You can’t explain to them what happened.

Really? That’s some career change.

Don’t they pretty much drive themselves? You’ll be sat on your arse all day with your feet up.

I’m sure I read London Underground drivers are earning shitloads each year. It’s a shame you’re so far away from there!

Get yourself subbing round some big local building firms instead. The main joiner on our site is on the books, and earning over £80k a year. All he does is first/second fixes, soffit and fascia, and trusses and joists. If I had a week spare I’d learn how to do it myself! :lol

The plasterer is £100k. Fooking madness.


My board has changed colour. Is it just me or did it happen for everybody? I’ll have to suss out how to get the orange and black back.

This was posted on the Forum Maintenance thread yesterday

The Puntersmate board has been updated overnight.
Please let me know if you have any problems.

Once again we are faced with the issue of the board style not being available, as the author no longer updates it.
So still working on that. But we will have to change to a different style sooner rather than later.


So there will be work going on with the styles for the next while
If anyone sees any style changes please refer to that thread.

We are on a bit more. Our apprentice is just starting his third year (that has flew by) and I think he’s probably laying £500/£600 worth of work a week for us. When you take in the laboring he does too, he makes our life very easy.

In a years time he/we will have to make a decision on his future. If he stays with us then he’ll want a good wage, which will mean our wage will have to drop a bit! Or he could start his own gang and still stay with the firm. I’m still not sure which I’d prefer just yet. He’s definitely distorting our wages at the moment though.

We’re getting to that time of the year now where we can get random days of because of the weather. Every morning can possibly bring you that nice little surprise.

Could be a day off tomorrow. :clap :clap

I don’t know if it’s Brexit concerns or just a bit of a lull, but apparently house sales have dropped fairly rapidly amongst our sites (25 of them on total). They’re putting a few more sites on hold for now, which should’ve been starting very soon.

I’d imagine people are holding off buying until all this bollocks is sorted out. The last thing we need is another recession.
