Three Hoodies Save the World

Constant moaning and whinging about everything

I had a different kind of Black Friday

Almost an anti-Black Friday if you like.

I don’t ride a real man’s bike anymore. I have a scooter. When I had a bike I used to do all the servicing and repairs myself, but with scooters it’s a lot harder as it required a little less time to construct the Titanic than it does to haul off all the plastic to replace a stupid little £1.50 light bulb.
So I let them do it.
It needed two sets of brake pads, but as I only have single discs fore and aft, £40 quid each I thought.
A new rear brake disc, and I know that only costs £60.
A new drive belt. £80.
So, add an hour or so’s labour for a max price of about £350 and my daughter (alleged) still gets a good Christmas.
Five hundred quid.
I could almost have bought another scooter for that!

I just went down to PC World, missing the sales by about twenty seconds and bought an external hard drive roughly the size of the brick I lobbed at Mr fox the other night. I’m going to back everything up on my clockwork PC. So, as my USB 3 socket’s kaput, I’ll be back in about three weeks.


They’re looking a little jaded but still going strong.
