Well done, that was something I'm glad to have opted out of, it was hard enough to stay composed as it was read out after having seen & approved it. The woman that wrote it, delivered it with far more emotion than was in the words on the paper

I know where you're coming from Manic, but I was worried that someone else wou not read it how I wrote it. To be honest writing it was harder than reading it.

You've a mini golf itch that needs scratching?

I played some awesome ones in Florida in the 90s. There was a pretty cool one down the coast here next to Hooters (before it shut then re-opened elsewhere, a shadow of its former self) which was good fun too, you could sneak past the attendant to play extra courses. Near me now there's a "Soccer Mini Golf" (yes they use that horrible S word here) which I played with some mates for my last birthday, that was fun too, but I was rubbish at it.

got cold called at work for the third time through my estate agent trying to sign me up for "free" home insurance on a place I don't yet own
when she wouldn't deviate from the script and agree to send me the details so I can read them myself and responded with "but its free" I exorcised her precious 14 day cooling off period a tad earlier than she expected by hanging up on her and immediately blocking the number
