Ups and Downs on TWF w/e 13-8-17

Recommended Posts

RWP    14,447

Ups and downs?  Another week gone by and no new watches this week, in the spirit of hanging in there and doing what I keep saying I'll do..........buy something Valjoux:yahoo:

That I suppose is an up and a down, but really the  bit won't come until I get the Valjoux.

Up and Down

I was ticked off because the parts for my car came in late so I had to put the date for the work back, a down.   

The parts came in.  Up.

I have to get it done next week and pay for it :huh:  Up and down .  Get a courtesy car for a week. Up.

Grockles.

The weather has been pretty crap and whilst I do feel mildly sorry for Grockles I am delighted that I can still drive around without endless queues.  Not going to be good for those relying on the holiday trade.

Up

Really enjoying my Citizens Royal Marine........twelve continuous days on the wrist :)

Otherwise the usual round of shopping, popping out for pub meals, and couch surfing. Oh and still on track for reading my usual couple of books a week.

Thoughts for all those not feeling A1 :thumbsup:

Cheers for reading.

Ups. Some nice incoming watches, all healthy and well

Downs. The upcoming new website means I can't update the old site. 

Off on the BHI course next week to learn which hammer to use when

I've got plenty to keep me going, and this course is just five days - I still be more Phil Daniels than George Daniels after this!

Ups

Still alive

Easy week at work as it has been the main shutdown and I had the keys to the hut we work out of.

For some reason Big M has been exceptionally nice to me !!! I'll let you know what she's after as soon as I find out.

:laugh: :laugh:

Actually saw another watch that wasn't a Rolex and thought "I could wear that"

:huh:

Downs

None to speak off which like still being alive is always a bonus.

:biggrin:

Congratulations SultanandBigM :thumbs_up:

The timepiece that caught your eye, I'll hazard a guess that it was a Seiko......wasn't it. :biggrin:

I know.  Good thing too as it means my builder isn't distracted by outdoor jobs and has fitted our new kitchen.

They did contact me last week asking would I like to reserve one at a favourable price  :biggrin:

Regardless of that, their offerings IMO offer a lot of bang for the (sale price) buck.

Usually right next to the fuel filler port under the filler flap. This stuff is a right con...I would never buy a car that needed it...the only reason I have to have it is because it's a works vehicle...a Citroen...and the bloody run out alarm is stupidly deafining....

For the first time ever, a whole week of "ups" :-)

First off, a couple of happy customers have been satisfied with a couple of sales I have made and my underapprciated watches now have happy homes.  That's an up for me.

Second, my little Breitling SuperOcean had had a clean bill of health from their service centre (and a very happy experience dealing with them to boot) and should be returning home next week.  Fingers crossed...

Ups.

Got rid of a load of vintage motorcycle stuff, and got a Tudor.

Downs.

Looks like my favorite motorcycling roads are now nose to tail with insanity. The police are turning vehicles away from Skye because ts become so overcrowded.

Ups.

Strathdon is still quiet with excellent roads, and informative road signs, so I'm off there.

Hello watch lovers,

Up, a couple of watches in this week I am very pleased with both...:yes:
Down, they both took to weeks to arrive, which seems to be the norm these days for international post. :(

Up, no duty on either of them :biggrin:

Up/down,the weather has been crazy with temperature in the mid 40 degrees, had some rain last night which cooled things down a little...:beach:

Up we will get away this week somewhere for a break :thumbsup:

All the best Martin
