  1. Ha, it's not even on Ritherdon Rd, it's on Balham High Rd, AKA the A24. I know Balham is nuts price wise, but this is utter madness.
  2. I got an email about a piece of furniture I had advertised on Freecycle. It was from a researcher for channel 4 asking if I they could have it for a new Kirstie Allsop show in which she shows people how to furnish their homes for free. Bit of a ruddy cheek I thought, raiding Freecycle to make more dosh for Allsop. Any how. I gave it to someone else who didn't have a TV show to make.
  3. Buy some headphones and keep your music to yourself.
  4. Use a webcam to record the entire interaction between you and the firend, and make sure that you ask the right questions such as 'why don't you have an inventory?' Often in these situations, LLs and their agents will make promises that are mysteriously forgotten later.
  5. Ha! My wife has an extentive biro habit, She chews them to pieces, so I daren't leave them lying around anywhere she might see them.
  6. Mods, please move to Anecdotals if you think this is in the wrong place. I was in Asda recently, and noticed that a shampoo that had been for sale at £3 a bottle the week before (not on special offer) was now £4.49 a bottle or three for a tenner. I thought the supermarkets had agreed to stop this deceptive pricing? Also, in Co-op today, I bought cereal bars on a two for £3 offer (£2.89 each), some yoghurts on a similar deal, and a pack of biros for 99p (not an offer). I watched as they were rung up on the till; none of the special offers was registered, and the biros were charged at £1.99. It was only when I queried it that the cashier noticed the pricing errors, and she just said 'It's always like this when they change the special offers', refunded me the difference, plus, for some reason, gave me the biros for free. Thing is, it's not the first time this sort of thing has happened, but there's one thing that's consistent whenever it does happen -the price is always too high, it's never an error the other way. I'm not normally one for conspiricies, but this does seem very odd. Has anyone else noticed the same sort of thing?
  7. See, this crap does have an effect. Here's a house that's been on the market almost two years and, according to PB, has not been under offer once in all that time. However, the owners have increased the price by £35k. I mean, prices are rising, aren't they? Don't want t o give it away! http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-29118538.html
  8. Have posted this one before as I was astonished at its price. Sold for £250k in June 2010, then £370k in Jan 2011 after a 'refurb'. Now it's apparently worth £410k!. It's in a very nice area, but its a small house, totally out of character with the other houses on the road, and sits at the bottom of a big block of flats: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-39948281.html Land reg: http://www.zoopla.co.uk/house-prices/eastbourne/milnthorpe-road/?q=Milnthorpe%20Road%2C%20Eastbourne%20BN20&search_source=house-prices
  9. Found this amusing gem on Rightmove this morning. Don't tell anyone else, though. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-24639507.html
  10. Claims management firms already at it, apparently: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2012/oct/29/claims-firms-mortgage-mis-sellingk
  11. Here's a beaut: This was sold within the last 2 years. Asking was £250,000, but sold price not on the land reg. It has a big tower block just behind it and is not very big. However, the Meads area is nice. This is what £410,000 gets you: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-35133910.html
  12. Radio 4 just said the census showed a 7% increase in the population since 2001. mostly through immigration. Not sure if I heard the next bit correctly, but I think they said that 1 in 6 of the 7% was over 60.
  13. I guess they'll just have to switch oin the spindizzy and head for deep space. (See James Blish for details)
  14. Be fair, but the hours you've shown are (presumably) the hours they spend in the classroom. They're supposed to study at least one hour for each they spend in lectures. Of course, whether they actually do this is another matter ...
