  1. I'm not saying she's a bad parent. She just doesn't seem as keen as me to spend time with him. She's had him every day for 3 years so maybe it's just a break or a change but she complains that she doesn't see him enough yet swaps time with him for hair cuts and drinking. I wouldn't. Me and The Boy have a great time, we never just sit at home playing with toys, we are always busy and by the time we get home it's usually bed time. He doesn't ask or his mother but apparently always does for me. She tells me he's hard work and plays up but he's no trouble with me. I'
  2. Things are pretty amicable at the moment and "custody" is supposed to be 50/50. But it's not working out that way. I'd have him all the time but believe the best way is for him to see me and his mother equally. However she seems "busy" a lot. Party, hangover, hair appointment, work....seem to coincide with the days where she should have him for more than just the night. If there's a full day (where he isn't in nursery) he seems to be with me. It's great for me but I really want it settled and regimented. As for paying her off then it's only money. She's done well out of a
  3. I'd be more than a little surprised if this was still available 5 years later! Edd
  4. Currently in the midst of a divorce. 6 or 7 years together, 2 married. 1 child (3 1/2) She has done well. She was completely spoiled for 7 years. Didn't work after the baby was born. Never wanted for anything. But I don't begrudge her any of that as it's how I wanted to do things. She's now 31, house with no mortgage, money in the bank, little business, car.... We sold (or are selling) 1 house to pay her off and she's not screwing me for anything else. But she's still doing really well. I'll be sorted soon but currently in a bit of limbo. Also terrible at be

    I have a mint Howa with mod and scope for sale. Pm if you'd like details. Edd
  6. Possibly. I'll take a look on weekend and get back to you. Edd
  7. Thanks for the replies guys. It's all a learning curve. As soon as I move I'll have the rowing machine so that can take up a few hours one I build up again. Used to do 2 marathons a week (never under 3hrs) so will have that soon. Me and The Boy have loads to do when he's awake, it's the time he's sleeping that's killing me. I was described yesterday as a bit of a gypsy and not liking to be tied down. I have never really been one for spending time in the house. No garage or workshop here or at the next place so that takes a lot of the suggestions out of the equation. I
  8. Pms replied to and both still here at the moment. Any interest? Edd
  9. Anybody interested? I've got pics and details if anyone needs them. Edd
  10. Sportsman are not the importer. SMK are. I've had a few of the different models and they all seem good value. Edd
  11. 2 available. Good working order. Will get them cleaned up and greased before sale if needed. 6 stack Pedal and remote Can only find one battery at the moment but will look for the other. Np44 for collection or could put on a pallet for a courier. £500 each.
  12. I'm not really a just relaxing kind of person. I'm always doing something, knowing that I don't have that option is the hard bit. My boy is 3 so bikes and quads are all in the pipeline. Currently looking for a quad but seems everyone is out of stock. We have plenty to do together. He enjoys coming to work with me, we've a dog and plenty of places to walk her, he'll start fishing and shooting soon enough, he enjoys coming on the boat, I have friends and family that we can visit any time, we play rugby, we just enjoy doing the everyday stuff together. But it's the nights that I'm
  13. I already am! Well, maybe not quite. Yeah the rowing machine will likely reappear. I used to do a lot of that. I won't bring work home, no more than a few emails, and all the toys like chainsaws and stuff at at work. I'm sure it just takes a bit of getting used to. The summer will be better when we're not in the house at all. Sleeping on the boat or in the camper will be better I think. Edd
  14. The split is amicable. Mostly. I've plenty to do when I don't have him. Mostly work, which is ok, but plenty of other stuff too. It's mostly when he's asleep. It's literally only been a matter of days but I'm already finding that bit tough. And not being able to just put my boots on and go out at a moment's notice. Edd
  15. All good but I'm on top of that when I don't have him. I'm moving soon so will have a new house to sort but apart from a bit of decorating there won't be much that I can do while he's asleep. Its all new and I'm sure we'll figure it out. Edd
  16. My situation has very recently changed and now I'm single again. I'll be having my son at least half of the time. That's all good, we'll be very busy as soon as the weather breaks. But what do people do when the kids are in bed? It used to be easy. The (ex) wife would be home. We could talk or I could go out. I didn't always go out but I had the option. Now I put him to bed at 2000 and I'm twiddling my thumbs until he wakes. I've been up since 0430 and he's still snoring. I think I've completed the internet. I'm not much into tv. There's lots of things t
  17. That's a rather large hole in that muntjak! What did you make it with? Edd
  18. I have a few cheap. 243s if rfd is an option. Pm me if you want some details and I have a look through what we have. Edd
  19. I'd forgotten about this ad! Send me an email address and I'll get some details over. Edd
  20. Millions of things bought and sold every day. PP will protect you if you pay the fees as will CC. Whichever is easier for you. Just don't do PP friends and family and don't do a bank transfer. I'm sure it will work out easily enough. Edd

    Small quad

    Looking for a small quad somewhere around 100cc. Small enough for kids but big enough to get on to teach them. Chinese is fine but nobody seems to have any in stock. Does anyone have anything for sale or know where might have stock? Thanks Edd

    Pcp .22

    I'll be in the shop later so will see what's there. I know we are short of used stuff. Artemis and Aselkon are good value. New package can easily be within your budget and get good reviews. Edd

  24. Would anyone be interested in a used drinks vending machine? I bought it for the shop but need to space. It's about 1800x600x600 It can be set to charge any amount and has 6 or 8 drink options. It's in decent over all condition, could do with cleaning up and a few new stickers (which I can do if needed) Weights a ton and is a pig to move. Could put it on a pallet if anyone wanted to arrange a courier. I'll add pics and confirm exact details if anyone is interested. Located NP44 £100 Edd
  25. The cabinets I've seen in caravans have all been bolted to the chassis. Edd
