  1. Yes I'm an introvert and my productivity has shot up wfh. Even if I work a long day I'm still at the most, only half as tired and stressed as I was doing a normal day in the office.
  2. Likewise ours has been put back to 31th August if you don't want to go in. We can work 3 days home/2 days in although the email we got it assumed everyone had been vaxxed. I haven't so will be interesting what they do with me!
  3. At least you had the option of a NHS dentist! I had to go private and funnily enough I've looked after my teeth a lot more since. I have a Turkish Cypriot dentist who has 4 kids and he now only works Mondays & Wednesdays! (no - he doesn't own the practice)
  4. DMT is good! A low dose of E is all I need for social functions. Need to be careful though as you can easily use it when your bored, feeling a bit off etc just like alcohol. E reminds me of Soma from Brave New World...
  5. I've think I've drunk a total of half a bottle of wine in 15 months. In that time however I've grown nd taken magic mushrooms, tried LSD, extracted my own DMT and now a convert to Ectasy which is a god send to us introverts who have to attend any overly long social events😀
  6. After a few year of living together my girlfriend suggest she should have her name on the deeds of house. I pointed out ot her that I paid the mortgage on my own and we just shared the bills. She then wanted to move to a bigger house as well with me paying for it all. I said to her raise x amount she can the be on it. It shocked her that she expectedh to pay anything! As for moving you need even more so start saving or tough. She was on the equivalent of minimum wage a the time and I was not on the best of wages either (this back in the early 90's when you afford you're own place in London Surbubia). A couple of years later the deposit for the new house was saved . She now earns twice as much as me and I now ask her to pay any unexpected bills!
  7. Scunny has a claim to fame.. Ted Lewis wrote a book calls "Jacks return Home". where the said Jack returns back to his hometown of Scunny. A year later the book was turned into a film.. Get Carter!
  8. My childhood was all about strikes, British Leyland, railways, printers, miners, dustmen (I remember the 3 day week going to bed with a candle), if there was a union there was a strike.. In those days you could have wildcat strikes, you had to join a union as it was a "closed shop" in some workplaces as I did when I joined BT as my first job. So the first time I could vote no surprises where that was going..

  18. I did in 1983, that was my first GE. I was sick to death of stroppy unions bringing misery to every one. Imagine a Bob Crow in every workplace calling wildcat strikes at a drop of a hat...
  19. Yes I've learnt from others on (how not to)retire and seen how some of them just vegetate and have no purpose in life. Ain't happening to me gov💪! I agree it can be lonely but that's up to individual to go out and participate in community actvities. I will be the first in my social circle to do so and rest are probably 7-10 years off. Saying that I'm already drifting away from them and I suspect there is an element of jealousy on their part that I can retire early.
  20. Agreed! Now definitely retiring in next 2-3 years instead of a maybe. Have got used to these 4 walls 24/7 with no problems at all. Haven't spent a lot of money so I know exactly how much I need on a monthly basis for spending on essentials and luxuries. Would have retired earlier but the house needs some doing up first...
  21. If you're buying a few tons then yes a guarded vault maybe a preferable option. If you're buying a few ounces you can hide them at home..
  22. 55 - been offered - won't have it until I'm actively discriminated against.
