  1. Buy to let novice - first of many questions!

    On the flip side, and perhaps we have been lucky, we have two residential rentals and both have never been empty. They are both in good locations which helps and the agencies we use do their best to vet tenants which, so far, seems to be working well. Commercial rental is interesting. Perhaps if I'm in a position with equity to invest again I'd look at that. Main priority now is a bigger house to live in.

    Let's suppose you don't like it, can you cancel the one you are ordering for keeps?

    Wow. Just wow. Was this the special project thing you hinted at when selling your GTO? I wondered if it was an F40 or 50. Or LaF Aperta. Or a classic. In short, I had no idea!

    And who would blame him?

    I love a bit of PT. I'm probably not nearly as fit as I could be - if I did a proper programme I might be. I also eat like a fat b'stard! My friend Max calls me the fittest fat bloke he knows!

    One day swimming a mile. Another day maybe swimming 2k or a row of 10k. Third day a 10k row. Fourth day an hour on the Turbo at about 80% HR. I am not getting much rowing time. Tomorrow for example I'm not sure I fancy a swim so I might try and bust out a 2k row, just to see what I can do it in, followed by a run of 4/5 miles perhaps. There is no program being followed per se. I certainly don't fancy much time on the ergo tomorrow!

    10k in 40:54.3. Where did that come from?! Sub 40 seems like an eternity away, but in distance it is about 200m.
  8. I've changed my mind. I want an F12 Effing quick or whatever the new one is. Garcon speaks sense.

    The world record for 2k is 5:36.6. Nuts huh? WR for 10k is just over 31 mins. I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel at the end of that!
  10. Hmmm. LaF Aperta? Prob not, the one I covet most is probably a boring old 991 Turbo S.

    PB on the rower ergo today. 10k in 41:06. Passed through 5k pretty comfortably at under 40min pace but the last 3k got me. Sub 41 in my sights. Fuelling before, errrr, helps. Only getting on the ergo once or twice a week so expecting progress to be slow. Other phys is swimming and bike so all good for rowing. Gave up on the bilateral breathing. Just don't want every session I do in the gym or on the bike to be a chore and the rowing certainly is, and the bike is long and suffering.

    No half board for us. Decent restaurants locally and don't mind cooking one or two nights.

    We got Pine Cliffs in May for about £2,200 for 10 nights. Avios pays for the flights mind you.

    Top tip. Pine Cliffs in Portugal. You get an apartment with hotel accoutrements. Apartment is cleaned every day, proper big beds, loads of pools, a stack of restaurants that are good, room service if you wish (although it isn't great). We went last year and are going again in May. Whether we stump up the extra to go in school holiday time next year remains to be seen!

    Mrme: pah, feck it. Long since paid for. Cruiser - I get many many offers like that. None have appealed to date.
