  1. I have a shop and it has been strange. The build up to Xmas over Dec seemed quite good given the circumstances and pretty consistant as in every day about the same amount in the till, above last year but that expected given inflation. Xmas week which I took from Wed to Wed takings down a lot on last year (again taking inflation into account) however customers up!! Shop is established (not building up new business) however we get more "bums on seats" but not spending as much!! I think this next year will be very unpredictable. Gonna take every day as it comes.
  2. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7777205.stm Cash boost for North East homes The North East of England has received a multi-million pound funding boost to build thousands of new homes. Under the Government's Growth Points scheme, Tees Valley will gain £6.1m and Newcastle, Gateshead and North Tyneside will share more than £7.2m. Housing Minister Margaret Beckett also awarded £3.2m to south-east Durham and £2.7m to south-east Northumberland. Regeneration, improved transport links and at least 60,000 new homes will be built across the region by 2016. Mrs Beckett said a growing population, coupled with people living longer and an increase in more single households, meant more housing was needed. She said: "In these difficult economic times we must not lose sight of the long-term need to build more homes. "This money is targeted at those local authorities with the most ambitious growth plans. "As well as helping to build the new homes we need, it will ensure we have the support and infrastructure in place so that these homes become part of the existing community, not a burden on their resources."
  3. Smiffy, This thread plus the job thread identifys the fact that you are flapping. Hold back a bit and don't rush ahead with any decisions you may regret later.

  8. U obviously aware boiling of the blood is a good and rather old saying statement, not a perception on what I believe will unfold, "jesus my bloods gonna boil", my backside. Vicmac, you and Mr B are the exact opposite of Sibley, go and bait him with your extremes, have a bit of fun, in fact I will add to my Sibley topic that he bait you two. Stop worrying in the next few years all will be on the up. CYCLICAL property, shares, savings like it or not.
