Yep, don't bother coming the beaches of Essex - Canvey Island, Clacton and Southend are much more appealing! Who wants to lunch at Broadbeach all the time anyway???

Spending hours hunting for dishwasher salt in all the shops, only to be told the water's so pure I don't need it - they don't even make a hole for it in the machines.

What do I do with all the time I've got left when I'm not hanging upsidedown in the dishwasher trying to funnel all the salt out of that stupid bag into the tiny hole?

We use (like most things cos we're poor) 'Home Brand' dishwasher powder from Roley Coles and it works superfine! ...

... oh you'll find something. Maybe go visit one of the horrendously boring beaches and just sit and listen to the waves crashing down. Boring as hell, but I like to do it ...

And the complete boredom of hanging your washing

outside...

and its dry in about 45 mins....


I loved my dryer back in Wales, it was on 18 hours a day... which probably didnt cost me a lot more when the electricity went up by 22% AT ONE TIME!!

Ok, this one's from my Dad when he visited last month (only he really meant it) :curse:

"this beach is too noisy - I keep hearing the waves crashing really loudly"

Must be cos there're no other people within 100 yards.

Families eh - that's a whole other topic

What really really winds me up is shop assistants having the cheek to pack my shopping whilst having a conversation................................with me! Who the hell do they think they are? I go to the petrol station and the guy behind the counter has a joke with me, he doesn't know me, how dare he?

I know, it drives me insane too!!! I mearly called to the pharmacy for my prescription and not only did the pharmacist AND the assistant remember me from the week previously, they asked how I was feeling and if the stuff prescribed had worked!!! Nosey buggers!! I MUCH prefered the grunts and huffs back in Blighty!!
