@Gracii Guns you failed your driving test 5 times !! Is that just this year?? :wow:

Congrats at the job stuff :)

Yes, had tests in April. June, August,October and November.

The first three were anxiety. I failed on one fault on the fourth after taking beta blockers. Then failed the fifth after the beta blockers spaced me out!

Health wise everyone was okay, but money wise not so much.

The world is one big mess and I don't see it getting any better.

I'm just trying to keep my head above water, but it's hard.

Sorry for laughing, but it is a bit funny;)  my youngest failed 7 and passed on her 8th but they were spaced over a few years. 

Honestly, i think she failed more than she told us about :lol:

I failed a fuckload of times, I’m sure it was 8 or 9, even when i passed it was by the skin of my teeth, i got like 12 minor faults which is absolute minimum you can have.  Got banned for a year within the first week of driving too :lol:

I got 20 minors, 7 majors and a dangerous in my first test. Sounds like a description of a Tory party paedophile orgy doesn't it? :lol:

I promptly got 2 speeding tickets three days apart and lost said licence because they were three days before if held it for two years. 

That was back in 2010 and I didn't bother driving again until I took my test again a year ago.

I think i got flashed today.  Not in a 2am in a trenchcoat whilst taking a shortcut through the park sort of way, I mean like speed camera.  I googled it and apparently its a ton fine and points on your lisence, I fuckin' hope not, was just about losing the effects of those two driving bans on my insurance and now this comes along.

@Len Cnutyou’ll have to get a bike like @Dazey has.

I can't ride a bike :lol:  Foot patrol over here.  I'm pretty much the definition of 'good for nothing' :lol:

I can't believe you still can't ride a bike. Maybe that should be your good intention for 2019. Learning to ride a bike. Maybe your niece can help you.

It's not like I'm trying and I just can't, I've just never bothered and at my age why would I?  I work 9 hours a day and drive, what do I wanna learn to ride a bike for, to do what with it?

People like me and Luke are why this country is such a mess :lol:  The multiple choice GNVQ generation, crippled by exstacy, bad diet and short attention spans :lol:

Here it's unheard of for a grown man not to be able to know how to ride a bike.

If it's within reasonable distance (under 15 km), I usually take my bike and not the car. It's cheaper and healthier. And I go for bike rides just to clear my head and for exercise.

You live in London, right? It's probably not as suitable for riding bikes as it is over here.

I live near a lot of nature, so it's fun riding my bike through the forests. I could be walking, but that's too slow for me.

But on the other hand, Len can ride a donkey like it's no man's business.

Replaced camel with donkey to hopefully make it completely accurate.

Lost both parents in a four month period. Dog escaped the fence one night and never returned. We fear the coyotes got her. 

On the positive, published a book that has sold about 600 copies on Amazon. And bought a new house that is my wife’s dream property. Five aces, big horse barn, three car garage and two mother in-law apartments. Plus it’s in the country, away from the city!  And we got a new baby beagle that is the cutest puppy in the world.

So a very up and down year.
