Been a busy week.

Had a very good practice with the band on Sunday, getting the set list together, and soon to get to work on some of our own stuff.

Monday was nice and quiet, nothing much to report.

The real "Duh" things have been in the last couple of days.  We have been part of a bit problem at the tax office - they decided that I earnt about double what I actually earnt, with all the related problems that is going to cause.  Think I got it sorted today, but we will have to wait for a letter to confirm this and wait for them to pay the money they owe us.

Then Mrs RC went shopping.  On going through the checkout she thought it was a bit more expensive than expected.  Before leaving the shop she checked the receipt.

Turns out that the 3 chickens for £10 that she bought were charged as £132!


They are refunding the difference...

Got a wargame arranged for next week.  Met up with a friend at lunchtime for a beer.  He is having a tough time at the moment and needs to relax, so we are going to have a game of King Arthur vs the Saxon hordes type game.  He bought the armies for it months ago, so it is time to blood them.  I will try to take some pics of the battle as it unfolds.

Have a great weekend!  Not sure what I am up to, but given the tax man situation it is going to have to be cheap...

Your chicken story reminds me of my apple story! Except Mrs. RC thought to check her receipt BEFORE leaving the store. Glad she caught it!
Sorry to hear about your tax man issues, but a cheap, quiet weekend at home is sometimes what the doctor ordered. (That's what I always hear anyway...)
And next weekend you have a wargame scheduled! Something to look forward to!

I had some tax man troubles a few years ago. They said they sent me a refund but I didn't get it, so they sent a second refund, then about a year later they said I had cashed both refunds and wanted their 2nd payment back. After lots of hassle and threatening letters etc, it was discovered that they had sent the first refund to the wrong bank, and someone else had cashed it! Never heard anything more. Good luck with your tax problems. It must be hard to be a tax man and have everyone hating you!!!!!

How nice of them to decide you earned double what you actually did! I'm sure you would have lived it up a lot more if you'd have known how much money you had!

Hope they get that all sorted out soon!

War games with your friend sounds like a good way to blow off some steam. Hope it does you both some good!

Were the chickens stuffed with cocaine? It's okay RC, admitting you have a problem is the first step.

I love blowing off stress by doing battle with Saxon hordes too! Let the blooding begin!

I was going to ask if they were orgasmic chickens. That would have explained it ;)
