    My shower broke yesterday, my Tivo died today (losing 48 recordings), my server keeps crashing, my mother is coming on Monday (the house looks like a war zone), the tax man is dragging out my tax return for all its worth, my bath has a leak, the binmen didn't take my rubbish cos it was 6 foot from the collection point, and finally, i missed out on Foo Fighters tickets in December!

    :( :( :(

    My sky plus broke down for the fourth time in the last eighteen months and I have to pay £ 65 to repair it. Have they not heard of the word reliable?

    The world is against you , our mollycoddled cushioned society merely blinds us to the fact.

    We are the irritating grain of sand in the oyster of the world. It does everything it can to excrete us but ultimately this is what will spur our transformation into pearls.

    All hail the bearded clam!

    As long as your fridge is still working, just have a beer and try and relax.

    Well, the guy came for the shower this morning (he got lost while coming on Thursday), fitted the new shower, but it doesn't work, not enough water pressure or something!

    And now my TiVo has decided to "lose" its network connection!!

    not that i want to compare but: someone crashed into my car last week, someone else is claiming that i have run them off the road at some point in the past month (NOT TRUE) and am currently waiting to see if i need an operation or not.
    On the upside -
    At least i have a working home cinema and my wife has finally agreed to a projector in our lounge :)

    I've finally come to realise that it's all down to perception. You can either 'view your glass as half empty or as half full'

    At the end of the day (excuse the cliche expression) we are all in the 'same boat'.

    Some of us are cleverer then others...

    Some of us are richer than others....

    Some of us care more than others....

    and some of us are more sensitive than others.........


    Good job we're not all the same as each other or we'd be bored stiff and nothing new would ever be created....

    We all have good and bad (sometimes very bad) days (or even weeks).

    I have come to realise that life is far, far too short to let it affect us too much!

    I find being as open and friendly as possible seems to work for me, but even then sometimes sh*t happens.....

    At least we live in a country where we can do (to a great extent) whatever we want....

    :clap: :clap:
