Massive rises in utility costs here, vat went up to 23%. Resturants have had a vat hike from 12% to 23%. They are closing everywhere.

I just did some steelwork for a company who has a contract with the new Conrad Hilton 6 star hotel here and the builders are bankrupt !!

Not going to race on sunday now, gutted. The cost plus the dry and heat (35) has killed it.

Going to the beach with a cool box instead.

I cant justify spending what £40 race fee £40 fuel + food etc for a one day meeting thats without wear n tear, So far this year i have been an "Arm Chair" fan.

Im hoping to scrap together enough money to buy a cheap 125 to do the vets next yr, im owed some money so if/when that comes in i'll be looking to spend no more than £1500 and get out and rip it up.

I added the entry fee, the fuel for the bike cos its 5 mins down the road and the tyres cos they will be shredded.

Then the dust and the heat.........the beach is getting busy and the thong is I like it there with my mirror shades on.
