Oh bloody hell

So here I am about to feck off up the canal, when I pop into the doc with a small problem. (It took me a week to actually get an appointment). I now have to go to to the Breast cancer clinic at the Churchill.

I have been there before for my right breast, and had a biopsy, which turned out to be not a problem. However this time my left  breast has pain. It does not bode well, but I am James Fucking Bond it will not win!

To anybody out there who says, but you are a man how can you have breast cancer? I will say I have MOOBS.

Roanne Loire Valley

It's been a week or two since I last wrote. Been a busy boy. I am sitting on a Eurostar train returning from the first proper holiday I have a in 12 years, not counting the 4,329 days I have pent  pootling around the canals. Here are some of the things I have seen during my travels.

Have you ever had a call from somebody asking if you had ever had PPI? I bet you have. And I bet you told them to feck off.

Have you ever thought of claiming PPI? Why should I you ask. Well because there is money in it! We all like money! You don’t have to let some stranger do it for you and take 33%. You can do it yourself. Just walk in to your bank and ask for a PPI reclaim form. Its that easy and you get all the money owing. Does that not make sense?

I did I got a payoff of £390. But being lazy I had to pay the agent £130 but I still got £260 I wouldn’t have otherwise received. Bugger me if a few months later I didn't receive a cheque for just over £1000 as a final offer. I kept all that.

The only problem with PPI is its not the bank that are giving you money well, not directly.

I remember when some time back £75k would earn you £500 a month in an ordinary bank savings account. £75k today earns about £25. Oh you say that’s because the interest is low! To which I would counter, Why?

Banks are having to pay back millions upon millions of pounds because they robbed you with PPI. In order to pay you back you are being robbed again with low interest rates. You can bet your sweet bippy they are not getting just £25 for £75k

OK so to get the best out of your bank it is your duty to apply for PPI. The only way you are going to get any return on your savings is to claim PPI.

And now!

Try as I might I cant seem to find the wherewithal to come here regularly to write. As much as I want to there is always something else to do.

I started this blog in 2004, that's 14 years ago. There are some blogs that have lasted longer, but not many. So what's been happening in my  little life of late? Well I gave you the rundown on my health issues a while back and it seems now that I am good to go.

I met Susan and we spend a lot of time together we both like good food and good wine. We seem to spend a lot of time in restaurants. She has a small house in France and I am going to visit her there soon.

When I return I shall set off on my way oop norf! or maybe dahn sauf. Don't know yet.

Catch ya later!
