Saturday (I don't want to blog about politics) night

Had a poker night last night with a couple of new faces. Poker nights always seem to give me a bad head in the morning. I don't know why, I don't drink any more than usual. I think it must be the huge amount of cigars that get smoked.

Robbie the Roofer came round this morning while I was still in bed with a bad head. We have had quite a serious leak in the bathroom that he came round to fix. (£30. It's not what you know...)

I was quite happy to leave the leak alone, it was dripping straight into the toilet so wasn't causing a problem. It was Mrs Bucko who made me get it done because she'd had enough of it dripping on her when she went for a pee.

I offered her a cheaper alternative but she was having none of it:


Still, can't grumble at thirty quid.

She went to keighly this morning while I was trying to pretend to the roofer that I didn't have a hangover. We bought a sink for the new kitchen off ebay. That was also £30, it seems to be the theme for today. Another bargain too. Sink with double bowl, mixer tap and waste pipes. Bargain!

It's our anniversary tomorrow so we are off for a meal this evening. That is also an exercise in saving money apparently.

Mrs Bucko has picked the local tapas restaurant. She always picks where we go, why is that? Anyone would think wedding anniversary's are for the female only.

She picked the tapas bar because it's twelve quid for all you can eat. Apparently that is saving money. I pointed out that if we went to the local curry house or Chinese and spent a tenner on a meal, we wouldn't be able to eat it all.


Some concepts go straight over the head.

It may be all you can eat but they get any losses back on the price of a pint. They have a really thin doorway too. I bet fat people struggle to get in.

Anyway, I'm off to make myself look good now. Jeans and a t-shirt are strictly off limits tonight.

I'll be back when I've eaten all I can and saved some money doing it. I wonder if it will cost thirty quid?
