I finally received my insurance payout from the MoreThan dog. In case you have forgotten, back in August I had a little mishap involving a glass of beer and my laptop. Suffice to say, my old machine is now in Lappy Heaven.

The payout was rather generous – £550 (although I did have to fork out £100 excess). The credit was in a form of a voucher for PC World. I eagerly walked down to the shop, clutching my voucher. As Homer Simpson would put it “I was like a kid in some kind of a store”.

I found a lovely Compaq laptop for only £400 – miles better than my last machine in every possible way – apart from an annoying little application known as Windows Vista, which came pre-loaded; I can live with that, after-all, I’ll have to support it one day.

As the laptop cost only £400, I was left with £150 store credit. What should I buy? 3 Xbox 360 games? My weight in DVDRs? A whole tree worth of printing paper? A Windows XP CD (to get rid of Vista)? No, I bought a lovely, new “Slim & Light PlayStation Portable” with Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Thank you Mr. Insuranceman. You made me very, very happy!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
