Still waiting to sign. Been about 9 weeks now.

My side is all done, as is their side with their mortgage all sorted, but the builder they're buying off are, for whatever reason, dragging their heels despite wanting everything tied up really quickly to get a deposit down, hence why I had to go in with a cash offer. The place is being built, it's not as if they aren't doing anything to it, so I'm not entirely sure what's difficult about getting a contract signed and them getting some money in to aid with cash flow etc.

The sellers told me last weekend when I went around that they're moving out end of March regardless of whether their new place is ready but I'd rather everyone signs a bit of paper before I started buying furniture. There's a difference between moving out while theirs is finished and moving out despite it falling through!
Still waiting.

Why do all TV chefs scrunch up their shoulders when they, say, pour a sauce over their creation. As if they’re some kind of magician.

Really grips my shit

That the Rangers fan coming out of you there Leo!?! :lol:
Why should it be Salty? This isn't a football thread. And you don't have to be a supporter of any team to have the same feelings. The guy I replied to actually posted in 'Things you like' thread...IRA - Geezers. Is he a Celtic fan ?

Still not signed anything, though!

I know the people I'm buying off, so I'm 99% sure it'll go through but until I've signed something there's always that thought in the back of your mind and that's why I've not bought anything yet. Need to get a sofa ordered ASAP really, so I might just go ahead with that this weekend or next.

My next door neighbour driving off most mornings with his kids in the back of the car and a fag in his mouth. Surely you don't need a new law to tell you that's fucked up.

Think you've misread Pags there Leo mate.
perhaps my wording is a tad confusing? I read it as....Pags disliked the fact that the neighbour is smoking in the car with the kids in the back then says...'surely you don't need a new law to tell you that's fucked up (ie: smoking with kids in the car)'. My reply was supposed to convey the meaning that perhaps a new law is required as in it being a law in Scotland to stop that particular habit.

You reading it differently?

I think you'll find that it is mate. It's law up here and no doubt down south will get round to it....

I know it's the law, but surely you don't need it to know it's common sense not to smoke in a confined space with children. Unless you don't consider your children's health to be more important than your own gratification. Which I assume applies to my neighbour.

Another nanny state decision.
What, you don't think it's important to stop fag smoke around young children, particularly in a confined space? Or do you think parents can be relied upon to take the sensible option themselves and therefore such a law isn't needed? If the latter the evidence suggested otherwise, hence the law was brought into play.
