  • This is certainly the case for me and my missus. Saves about £600 a month, and is the only way we are able to save.

    That’s all well and good, but young couples sharing a house is ideal for orgies and s*x parties.

    Of course, the obvious method around this is to get your partner pregnant then ‘leave’ the expectant mother. Girl applies for social housing and is informed by local council that their stock is in short supply and advises her to find private rental accomodation. Girl duly finds a two-bed flat which meets the LHA maximum allowance on a two-bedder. Bloke moves back in without notifying authorities and finds cash-in-hand employment. Couple live happily ever after in their love-nest.

    What’s a sax party MW? Some sort of woodwind instrument fetish; very niche indeed.

    Very good TT, the sister-company could be http://www.rightperv.co.uk

    Anyway, the thought of tunelessly blowing down an instrument, getting all red in the face, for no discernable benefit doesn’t really do it for me.

  • I haven’t had a ‘Party Six’ since the 70’s.

    Don’t think I could take on so much now and if I could it would be self defeating.

    Age sucks!
