I didn't realize the story was so closely auto-biographical. Will take another look, and our best wishes go with you!

{{Sorry shouldnt be here, really shouldnt I'm at work, still at least I have somewhere to be 2 nights a week! And yes sadly it is based on actual ongoing events, if filtered through Forumshire and the journalism of the NotP for better of worse. Its really personal therapy, a way to find humour in a situation that doesnt feel too funny to actually be in. }}

The humor has been wonderful. I don't think I could react so brilliantly to whatever exactly you are going through.

That's a thoughtful offer, Figgy, but given his need to commute to work I might as well offer my sofa in Manhattan.

{{Figg that is super kind of you but sadly not practical as I have my work here and I'm full time carer to my mum, but the offer is greatly appreciated.

Humour Halfy is all there is left to fight the gloom off with. Fotunately whilst our world is often cruel and unfair, arbitary and semingly without care, it also goes about it in the most astonishingly stupid and convuluted ways, making almost any situation funny in some fashion. }}

I have to suppose you own the place. If it weren't for needing a crash pad when you go back it would be nice to rent out.

No, I don't own it Halfy, I rent it. I need a base in England for when I go back for long extended periods.

That's quite an expenditure when not there.   It's like you're a secret agent, having a place like that.  Do you have ones in Paris and Istanbul? :brows:

Its as cheap as chips so its not expenditure that costs much, I have kept it for 10 years. otherwise I would have to rent an apartment or get a hotel room and that would cost way more. Its a seaside holiday town and holiday Airb&b lets go for premium prices, and one month in a hotel is just not feasible.

I think it is Lance who has rooms in Istanbul and Paris along with his burner phones and secret escape routes. pale
