    I'm also buying a house, well I would be if every one we look at isn't immediately sold to some fucker else Good luck with yours Nige, hope your hunt is less painful than ours
  2. I've been in construction all my life so I'm fully aware of the problems with new builds . I've gone from civils to commercial and now actually doing executive (expensive!) housing development myself in partnership with an ex colleague of mine, only problem is there aren't any plots of land available in the area we want to be or I'd just build my own - that's still my goal once the kids move out and we aren't as tied to the same area as we are at present. One of the things about the site I mentioned is I know the NHBC inspector who is monitoring the site really well and he's notorious throughout the north east for being an absolute stickler (foof!). So at least I know the quality will be there on the shell, finishes aren't really NHBC problem and they are easy put right, the site manager will hate me if everything isn't perfect as I've probably been in the game longer than him Nice to see the foof monitor still working
  3. Yep it's a pain. We thought we were in a good position as we are mortgage free and don't need one to buy the house we wanted (providing we sold ours of course) but first thing we were asked was is our house on the market/ sold. No it wasn't as we hadn't seen anywhere we wanted to move to. We may go for a new build now there's an estate being built adjoining the one where we wanted to buy , the houses are quite big by new build standards and not too badly priced but they haven't released the plots we are keen on yet. At least once we agree a fee we can work to a date for selling ours, all the hassle reminds me why we haven't moved for 20 years.......
  4. I was almost willing to be a gazumper but they wouldn't even let us view, plus they are selling to a first time buyer (on a £350k property!!) so no chain etc as we need to sell ours before we can buy. Still it gets me out of the broadband problem for the time being
  5. Thanks for the replies but annoyingly someone put in an offer which was accepted before we even got a chance to view the property and it's now off the market They won't even allow us to view it and possibly put in a higher offer , we were due to view this afternoon and they rang an hour before our slot to say someone who viewed yesterday had an offer accepted - only came on the market saturday
  6. Looking for a bit of advice re broadband speeds from anyone not on fibre. Been looking to move house for a bit and the house we've picked doesn't have fibre We've been on virgin cable for years now, currently on 100mb package as 200mb was a bit overkill and it's been great, best we can get is 'up to 18mb' which is a bit of a drop sadly. I can live with the extra download time for games etc but was wondering what those speeds would be like for Spotify and streaming video across 2 or 3 devices. Would it work or be constant buffering? Thanks
  7. Yep due to lack of activity I've gone from checking daily to maybe once or twice a week. I'm probably as guilty as anyone for lack of posts but other than BF1 I'm not really playing anything on PC, having lost the urge to complete Ghost Recon Wildlands, so haven't got much to say.
  8. What doesn't piss you off?

    Black Friday PS4 deals Picked up GT Sport for £18 and Uncharted Lost Legacy for around £13 plus BF1 Premium for £12. Some fantastic deals around today
  9. Yep I've had it for a while now, no issues and nothing hugely different to previous version
  10. What pisses you off?

    I buy all my clothes online however this week I've had a nightmare. Ordered two pairs of jeans 34 and 36, 34 nowhere near even though I have a same brand pair that fit fine if a little tight after holidays, 36 too fucking big!!!! Both going back Ordered a shirt, too big even though all sizing charts etc say that should fit me but it's a new brand to me so lesson learnt. Order another two shirts, same brand as above but two different sizes as 'slim fit' so thought I may be the larger size, both despatched with same tracking number, only one in package, the bigger size and it's too fucking big again and the size I need is now showing oos
  11. Player Unknowns Battlegrounds

    I've thought about picking this up but currently ploughing through Ghost Recon Wildlands so don't have the spare time atm. In response to your BF1 comment the new night maps do away with two of your biggest annoyances, snipers and planes, so worth giving it a revisit. (Snipers are still present but night map and trenches make them far less annoying/prevalent)
  12. What doesn't piss you off?

    Jesus, I've a couple of Tags and they were enough for me, those you linked are a whole different level
  13. Yeah that's what I thought but I now have six daily Mixes none of which include anything by either SLF or The Stone Roses. Strange thing is we have the Family account and they appear on my daughters where I have some stuff like Rihanna appear on mine that i've never listened to.
  14. Anybody use Spotify? I'm puzzled by my Daily Mix choices, none of which include my favourite band, loads of random stuff I may have listened to once or twice but none of my actual favourites even though I've followed them etc. Any idea what I need to do to make them appear in a mix?
