Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: Yesterday at 12:20

Hello everybody , I like to think positive , it is definitely better for the average person , I remember the back to back house in Birmingham with toilets in a block in the yard ! Not the good old days by any imagination 

It has always been difficult to buy your own house , who can remember getting tax relief on there mortgage payments and life assuranc premiums ? 

On another note finally recovered from Lurgy but feeling a bit done in 

Have a good day everybody

Emma , rather than steps what about getting some metal rods to hammer into the ground and fix some rope to it , to act as a hand rail - idea 

Can you put a picture on the site ?
