Preview

The French version of Season 7 on my Dutch DVDs (???) has a couple of interesting features.

First, the title:

Clever of them to put it in wonky.

Then they actually put the title of the episode itself in the opening credits:

Which makes me wonder why the original version doesn't do the same. (For those who doen't speak French, the title has nothing to do with "Amends", it means "Nine Years After").

Shop to Drop

I love shopping. I hate shopping. It's so difficult to get what I want in my size. But I enjoy looking - for a while. Yesterday I found some vivid turquoise skinny jeans in the supermarket, part of their range designed by "How To Look Good Naked" presenter Gok Wan. It didn't hurt that they were half price.

Today I found some bright orange jeggings. Irresistible.



But my search for boots seemed fruitless. I tried every single shop. I know you always find things in the last place you look, 'cos why would you continue looking after you've found it? But I had literally looked in every single shoe shop and department store in two town centres, and in the last shop left I found these:Now it can snow.

Con Artists

I'm sure none of my readers will be surprised at this description of a bank in this day and age.

I just received a letter from my credit card provider, which is also my bank, to say they are raising my "personal" interest rate to almost 16%. This is at a time when the base rate is just 0.5%. This is because the "status of my credit file has changed".

I am supposed to check the credit reference agency my bank uses to see if there is inaccurate information in my file. This appears to be free, but you have to sign up to £14.99 a month once the free 30 days are up, with no indication of quite how you cancel.

Since my bank, and my bank alone, would have provided all the information to the agency, my details would only have changed if they had changed them.

Am I wrong to assume that the bank and the credit agency are in cahoots to steal my money any way they can? 'Cos with a house I paid £12,000 for that is now worth a third of a million, a tiny mortgage, no recent credit purchases, and a reducing credit card debt, my credit profile should stellar.

Answer: Three, as long as you slice them very thinly.

In the centenary year of Titanic 1...

...0ne idiot crew presents Titanic 2 - The Italian Job.



Their evacuation drill included: Women and Children Last and The Captain Gets Off The Ship First.

Let's hope the 40 missing are still alive somewhere inside and are brought out alive, like the 3 survivors the hero divers already rescued.

I wish he'd hug me like he does that case.
