The worlds economy is in meltdown.

But not in UAE, which is totally immune to these things. That is according to the parasites at Cityscape anyway.

Is UAE one word?

Took the Deanlette up to univ for the first time............ luxury one-bedroom studio apartment with en-suite etc etc.......... bloody hell, it wasn't like that in the good old days............. in my halls, eight rooms shared ONE toilet and two baths..........

Went to see my Mum as well.............. 'who are you?' she said......... she had a cardio appointment that I went to with her - I'm something of an authority on that stuff, for obvious reasons..........

Yea saw the result............ why are your boys dropping home points?

I'll take a guess.

Some bickering about sports, sniping at new posters, endless discussions of a pub quiz and a mass of flirting.

Same old, same old.

Actually, having quickly scanned through a few threads, I notice the discernible lack of flirting...........

Is this because everyone has by now already shagged everyone else, so it's not fun to flirt any more............??

Yeah, twas like that last year when I took my step son to Leeds Uni. Student accommodation aint half gone up in the world. Also exploded through the roof in pricing - couldn't believe how expensive it was. Where has the boy ended up?

We were off to the flier as usual, but then get found out very early then struggle to re-coup any decent form. Might make the play offs.
