  1. Weren't they saying not so long ago that babies and mothers were at risk unless more midwives were trained and hired?
  2. I felt sorry for the american woman. Imagine hearing the words : "flexible accommodation", "en suite" and "townhouse" buzzing around you when they really mean: "sitting room in the same floor as your spare bedroom, you will never watch TV again while your baby sleeps" and " we have cut a corner of your master bedroom to plonk an bathroom so anything bigger than a double bed will never fit" and "only two rooms per floor, you'll be up and down all day" I DETEST those new builds, I think they are an aberration, I can't see how anyone can spent the best part of 300K to buy a "dining room" which is a square the size of an average table and chairs and thats all. I went around seeing some of these houses, once, measuring tape in hand, and couldnt find one with a bedroom where I could fit a king size bed "and" have space to open the door at the same time. And at least if you are buying them brand new, you can argue what you in lose space you gain in "shiney brand newness". but these houses were 6-10 years old and already had 2 owners! (People who realised they had to choose between storing some odd pots of paint and a broom in the garage "or" the car and moved out while they could.) I felt sorry for the IT guy too. Normally you want to punch these people (espesh in Beeny's shows), but I just felt sorry for them.
  3. I must be strange, but I'd rather have a reallistic asking price than someone's job thrown in the deal.
  4. Oh, absolutely. I also have a husky voice*, been told terribly sexy. (*)it's catarrh, actually
  5. I am another one that doesn't understand the Krusty hatred. I remember Beeny used to make my stomach churn. She used to advise people on TV to spend the minimum possible renovating houses and just do cosmetic changes so they could sell for the maximum profit. Profit profit profit, every time she said it when we were priced out of the market it used to make me sick. We were the losers then that had to borrow an extra 20-30K to pay someone who had painted walls magnolia, changed some cabinet doors and brushed a disgusting loo with bleach for their "hard work". Krusty and Phil helped people find homes (sometimes investment properties, but mostly homes) like St Beeny of the Our Profit, they used to tell people to lower their expectations and be realistic wih what they wanted. Beeny has inspired thousands to raid their pensions and savings to buy to let and to renovate and sell. I actually agree that Krusty's new show is a bit of a joke at best but ever so slightly insulting in the current climate. It's all a bit patronising. "Oh look at this wonderful mirror I got for absolutely nothng" Err Krustz babez, you got it free because you spent 1K in the shop and the shop owner said you are a "good customer". All sounds a bit "I saw you coming" (harry enfield) to me. But I still think Beeny has done more damage, convincing a nation the only job worth doing was "property development" Also Krusty looks she could be pregnant/just had a nipper in the second 2009 photo. Perhaps I don't agree with the majority here because I am not that keen on tits.
  6. I bought a house in October for 250K that was priced 299K originally. It had been on the market for 10 months. It can be done, but be patient and just try your luck, and keep on trying. The EA with wriggle like worms but who cares if you get a home.
  7. I have just shown it to my husband and he said: apart from the music...that's what the outskirts of Madrid look like to me anyway
  8. Whoooooa Brutal, me parece brutal. I am also Spanish and have been living in the UK for more than 10 years and I knew it was bad..but not THIS bad. Estoy acojonada. (Translation: I am starting to get a little bit concerned)
  9. We've just sold (fingers crossed everything fine, completing in a few days) a 2 bedroom terrace in a street in south reading full of noisy students and dead mice for 210K, asking price in April 215K. I reckon we've been lucky.
  10. That blonde bint that sits in the desk next to yours doing telemarketing, who spends the whole day reapplying MAC bright green eyeshadow with a brush that costs 30 quid while she browses the internet looking for cheap flights to go to New York for Christmas shopping. On 16K a year.
  11. My favourite is rightmove's Low Call Rates. 0845 numbers are non-geographic numbers that charge a "local" rate as opposed to 0870 numbers that charge a "national rate", 0800 "free" etc I've also just got a letter from the most annoying EAs in Reading explaining to me, cos I is thick, why a 20% drop in prices means that if I am upsizing I will be "saving" money.
  12. Maybe you dont live in a street crammed full of multiple occupation terraced houses where no ones wraps rubbish carefully, uses biodegradbale bags or bothers to close their lid? I try, but then the bin men move the bins again and I am stuck with the one full of maggots once again. I think it's disgusting
