  1. Oh, and the old guy in WH Smith. Such a gentleman!
  2. Sheila in Fairfield Stores on Berkeley Street makes me smile without fail...and Lesley in 5th Avenue is the loveliest lovely there ever was!
  3. Hi! Is this dining table and chairs still for sale? Can you post some photos? Thanks x
  4. I happened to be one of those 50 people representing the Isle of Man at the Monaco Yacht Show this year and myself, along with the other IOM exhibitors, were proud to be there promoting the island. People are really starting to take notice of our little island, and not only from the perspective of what IOM registration benefits are on offer. Just to clarify, the IOM Govt were represented by all of 4 people. Hardly over egging the pudding.
  5. Went snowboarding in Bulgaria for last New Year and had a blast. It was pretty cheap as we got an amazing last minute deal, and the snow was just fab!! We took LEVs with us before we went to save any rip-off rates because it was their peak winter season. Can't comment on summer holidays though, sorry.
  6. I've been here sooooooo many times before. I say punish him......"Running Man" stylee!!
  7. I lost my job a couple of years ago (manx company). I got the statutory redundancy pay and it was tax free.
  8. The guy I used for my wedding was D Alcock, tel 801111, mobile 455646. He's got a really nice white merc - I think he's using one of my wedding photos for his brochure. Really nice guy and very reliable. Good luck!
  9. I know what I'll be doing for my birthday now....yippee! Thanks Mr Dreamfish!
  10. Gluttony, Gluttony and Gluttony!

    If they were Jimmy Choos, hell yeah!!
  12. I lost 4lbs, but that's because of a very heavy night on NYE and a reluctance to try eating anything on NYDay! I'm sure it'll all go back on again, and then some, coz I have half of Winerite sitting in my spare room!!
  13. Does the Refinery have a list of courses that it runs? Their website has been "under construction" for ages and I never seem to be down that end of the street to call in for one
  14. I use CreditExpert.co.uk (affiliated with Experian) to check up on my credit ratings/scores. All companies I am associated with (whether it be banks, mail order catalogues, and even Camelot when I open my online lottery account) enter monthly information on whether I have made my payments on time (or not!) and you can log onto their website and check this information whenever you like. You can also get a free credit score report from Experian. I think it's free for the first 30 days (as a trial) and then you pay £5.99 a month if you want to carry on with your "subscription" to the service
  15. Think you'll find that the guy from Ramsey is actually swigging water out of his stella can and not beer
  16. I did that when I went to see a Pink Floyd tribute band at the Cavern Club in Liverpool this summer. They were so amazingly close to sounding like the real Pink Floyd and I blubbed my way through "Shine on you Crazy Diamond". Might have had something to do with the copious amounts of Magners we got through aswell though!
  17. I don't mind paying a lot for a meal, so long as it's good. Felt a bit let down by the place, but Tapas is a fave so I'd defo try it again if it's got a new owner
  18. I went to this Tapas restuarant with my boyfriend last summer and I have to say that we were very disappointed. The food was medocre and the waiter managed to pour a glass of expensive rioja into his half-filled pint of lager. He was on a compeltely different planet and didn't make much of an apology or offer a replacement bottle of wine. He did, however, offer a fresh pint of lager but even that was pretty crap. It may be that this place has pulled it's socks up since then juding by the previous posts, and we may even attempt it again if we're feeling brave, but I persoannly don't fancy c
  19. I've got all of Marian Keyes' books and can quite honestly say that if you want an easy, entertaining read then pick any of her work. They're perfect for holiday reading (lying on the beach sipping cocktails - that kind of holiday!). "Rachel's Holiday" is my fave out of all she's done.
  20. Natalie at Urban Hair has been doing my hair for about 12 years and I personally think she's about the best. I wouldn't trust anyone else to go near my hair apart from her!
  21. Q&S Motors on the quay in Douglas. They're quickest and cheapest garage I've used for quality repairs/servicing
  22. I've just been having a skeet through this week's Courier and there's an advert in the classifieds section, p25: "Become Cordon Bleu. Private cooking lessons available to ladies at home by French Master Chef. Only by appointment. Tel 305975". May be worth a call if you're still interested
  23. Shine on you crazy diamond by Pink Floyd. Went to a Pink Floyd tribute concert at the Cavern Club last weekend and it was truely amazing. "Pink Fraud" had me blubbing a few times during the evening!
  24. You can buy them from the railway station in Douglas - there's on office in one of the big "garages" down past where the buses park by Tesco. I got a load of them from there last year and they deliver too
  25. You could try Utopia - I'm sure I've heard of someone elses getting a fault and they could sort it out (think they may have sent them away but don't quote me on that). Think they're the GHD agent for the IOM.
