I WANT TO LIVE IN SCOTLAND NOW

At some point in the (hopefully distant) future I will have a flat in Ayrshire for rent at 300 PCM (shiter discount available) - there’s photos in the open forum.

I could do it at c.265 a month for a shiter who was willing to forego an agent and have a direct contract with me

I WANT TO LIVE IN SCOTLAND NOW


I like the idea of living in Scotland. Then I see pictures of the Shitefest midge attack in the summer and the thick layer of snow in the winter.

I'm too much of a softy southerner for any of that!

£71k is a studio or 1 bed flat in Aberdeen, maybe a two bed at the top of a council tower block.

 

Cheapest 3 bed house with garage in Aberdeen

https://www.aspc.co....Green/Aberdeen/ - needs work and not in the best are.

 

Next two cheapest are project houses in slightly better areas.

I'm in a 4 bed 1970s semi in a cul-de-sac, 5 minutes walk from Paisley town centre; Paisley Canal station is about three minutes walk with a half hourly rail connection to Glasgow, I have a three car driveway and a large garage; it was £168k at the turn of the year.

I have no midges either.

Chez Ghosty is a three-bed (well, two and a spare) detached house with a two car drive, garage, and moderately sized garden. 9 miles out of Manchester, anything you could possibly want within 20 minutes, train station with 4 trains an hour to the city centre, that take 15 minutes.

 

Parents bought it for 80k in 1998.

Probably more like 250k now.

The Clio has lived up to its Frenchness and the driver's window no longer works. Trouble is it stopped working whilst in the fully down position...good job this only happened later in the day and the weather remained lovely!

I did have a brief fiddle with the switch in France, but now being home I popped the cover off again and extracted it. Renault in their wisdom used different connectors for OS and NS windows, so you can't just swap them over.

20180613_213937.jpg

With some contact cleaner and loads of fiddling I managed to get the window shut, but it was a faff so a new switch is needed.

Productive couple of days on my ex Bornite/Also Mike 306 cab. Fitted a new rear screen and a complete set of new hood hydraulic hoses, all now operating perfectly, no leaks! Undamaged upper door trims replace wonky and bubbled ones,side rubbing strips satin blacked and all electric window regulators fully lubed for summer action. Knackered fuel gauge turned out to be a dry joint in the cluster.....Mot time tommorow.....attachicon.gif_20180525_193750.JPGattachicon.gifDSC_0589.JPGattachicon.gifDSC_0643.JPGattachicon.gifDSC_1317.JPG

Fresh Mot achieved for the Bumble Bee Pug.DSC_1338.JPG
Swapped over the semi blocked washer jets for more effective Xsara mist items.
_20180613_183837.JPG
And as the rear hood bin vinyl cover was beginning to shrink I plucked up the courage of having a bash of recovering it. DSC_1327.JPG
Turned out to be a right royal fiddly pain in the arse to do and although not quite perfect im pleased enough with the end result. DSC_1332.JPG
I also took the chance to fit a non perished front screen sponge weatherseal whilst I was in the mood to get covered in Sikaflex and contact adhesive! _20180613_231517.JPG
Next job will be the clutch as in my experience with 306s its heavy pedal will be down to an aged pressure plate. For the time being however I'm going to enjoy the car as is before the sun disappears!_20180613_184000.JPG

Even the dodgy eBay sellers who don’t ask for docs don’t make “show” plates any more!


Wifey works on reception at CAB one day a week. She had a bloke in who was having housing issues because he had a criminal conviction for making number plates without going through the correct procedure. He was a signmarker and noticed a gap in the market, set up a website and would make any plate with any spacing for anyone.
He didn't go to prison but was fined under the proceeds of crime legislation.
Wife said his life seemed pretty ducked up

Doncaster.

It does as not many of the small towns have big supermarkets, just smaller branches that charge crazy 'tesco local' type prices. My lass lives on an Island that has two co-ops, people still take the £27 return (car & driver) ferry to the mainland to do a monthly shop as it works out cheaper.


Doncaster. Could be worse, could be Rotherham, Denaby or Mexborough.

Regarding property: I live in a 3-bed terraced house on a narrow street with no off-street parking. We* bought it for £89k in 2005, re-decorated it and fitted gas central heating, and a couple of years back it was valued at £180k. :shock:

Aberdeen property prices are mental. If I ever get round to buying a property of my own, it will be in a cheaper part of Scotland.






*my parents bought it, then me and my 3 siblings have all lived in it at one point or another, as a mortgage on a cheap property was cheaper than rent (as in, we pay our shares of the mortgage rather than rent). It's just luck that it's turned into such a goldmine.

BBC Scotland News today.


Older cars face Glasgow city centre ban.

"Older cars will be banned from Glasgow city centre in four years time after councillors agreed to extend a low emission zone (LEZ) to all vehicles.
An LEZ will apply to 20% buses from the end of 2018, rising to 100% by December 2022. Cars will need to meet the strict standards from the end of 2022.
After that date petrol cars made before 2005 and diesels built before September 2014 will not be allowed in the zone". . . .

"Drivers entering the zone in cars made before these dates will be fined, with automatic number plate recognition systems being set up around the city centre".

Doesn't mention how large the zone is. Enforceable in practice? Doubt it.
