Hacking the system - it's easy once you know it

Two instances of suboptimal performance - I should know better.

Ordering stuff from the US

Shipping cost is significant - so I'll order 2 at the same time - WRONG. Value of 2 is big enough to trigger customs. Including customs and handling fee - would be cheaper to have 2 separate orders.

C60 - longevity - buckylabs.com - need to find UK supplier or become a reseller myself.

Applying for Permanent Residency

Previously I printed the form (85 pages) and I struggled a lot - many pages were completely irrelevant and there was a lot of admin.

Now I've applied online and my experience was much better.

I didn't have to list all absences from the UK!

Note that 2 hours flight to Europe is usually cheaper than 2 hours train in the UK and I estimate I was out of the country 10 times per year...

Borrowing money for ebenezer.wales

I talk to bank - it's for the purchase of the building. FAIL. It's called mortgage, the cost is too little for a mortgage. So next time I talk I'll tell - it's for refurbishment. Simple. Easy. Still telling the truth, I'll just move money from one pocket to another.
