I thought I would enjoy the huge attic that was in the house I bought. I figured I would fill it up with all kinds of stuff, but that never happened. I am just not the pack rat type, I suppose. That left me with an impressive amount of space that I really was not using. When my son asked me if we could convert it into a bedroom, I thought that was a great idea. He is 13 years old, and he shared a bedroom with two younger brothers. I contacted a builder in Bristol to see if it was feasible.
The man I wanted to hire came out that same week, and he took a look at the attic space. He told me that not only would we be able to convert it into a bedroom, but that there was enough space up there to build two nice sized rooms if that was what I wanted. I considered that my two younger sons would probably each want their own room soon enough, so I opted to go with the two rooms in the attic. My older son was a bit bummed because he thought the entire attic would be his, but he is still pretty happy with the outcome.
His room is slightly bigger because of the shape of the attic. He has two windows, and the ceiling is not sloped at all so he is not restricted like he would be in most other attics. My middle son’s room is slightly smaller but still has two windows. There is a very tiny hallway that connects the two where the stairs are leading up to the attic. They were hoping I would leave the ladder, but I had the builder construct normal steps. They may be young enough to climb ladders, but I am not! The final look is perfect, and it is still hard to believe that all three of my sons have their own bedrooms now.

Looking to take card payments for your business then a card machine is what your business needs.
My grandfather is really into National Hunt racing and got me into it. He’s been making bets on races for years, but he loses more often than he wins. I never understood why he kept betting when most of the time he just lost money. That was until I won my first bet, and I felt the rush of winning. That feeling really can’t be topped, and when you feel the despair of losing a bet, it really stings. I was getting to be like my grandfather because I was losing more than I was winning. Unlike my grandfather, I wanted to change my chances of winning.
The best way I could think of to become better at betting on horse races was to seek out advice from people who do more winning than losing. The Internet helped out greatly with this, because I was able to find out what people were using to form their betting strategies.

While browsing the Internet, I was looking for good ways to make money by investing, and I found out that investing in AIM would be a wise choice. I read up more on the subject and came up with a plan to make my first investment. From the moment I put the first bit of money down to today, I saw the market change and my money grew. I was able to make back the amount that I put away in under a month, and after that, I double and tripled it. I saw it as a more lucrative option that riding the stock market or playing with crypto currency.
I’ve also discovered another way that I can make money from investment. I’ve started making videos about my success with investment and have upload them online.

Last year was my first year in college, and I wanted to make some money, so I started selling items online. I would buy items for cheap prices from other online stores at discount prices, or from local stores and garage sales. For items that were used, I could clean the items and list them as being used and the condition they were in at the time. Initially I shipped the items in standard boxes, which worked well enough, but I felt they didn’t give my small business enough recognition, so I paid for graphic design in Bedfordshire so that a company would make a logo that would be placed on custom boxes that I would send to my customers.
To some, my choice may not seem like much. Continue reading “A Picture That Sends the Message of Quality”
I’m so glad that my wife talked me into getting one of those CCTV kits for the store that we own. Using the kit, we were able to find out who had been behind a string of vandalism acts that had been happening in the area. Some teens had been spray painting on the local shops and knocking over garbage cans. They came to my store and did it, but they didn’t realize that my CCTV had been watching them the whole time. The police were able to use the recorded video from the CCTV to identify the teens and notified their parents.
When the teens’ parents found out what they had been doing, they were furious and punished them by making them clean every shop that they had vandalised from top to bottom. I did some things as a teenager that I’m not proud of, but I never resorted to something like vandalism. Continue reading “The Errors of Youth Caught on Film”
I’ve been taking clay pigeon shooting lessons for a while and I’m pretty good at it. When I first started, I didn’t even know how to properly operate a gun. I was afraid that I was going to shoot myself or someone else around me. Everyone else seemed so comfortable with the gun, but to me, it was something that I didn’t even want to hold. Over time, with the guidance of my instructor, I became more comfortable around the gun and learned how to shoot with it. As I spent more time with the gun, I became better at aiming.
The moving targets are a little hard to aim at when you first start shooting. Even when you have a cue that the target is about to be thrown into the air, there’s a bit of a moment between when you hear the cue and when you start to aim and fire at the target.

I was not too concerned about finding recruitment companies bristol that would be fitting for me. I guess I was kind of naive about it, meaning I was more focused on my studies than I was on where I would apply my skills once I had that diploma in my hand. About a month or so before graduation, I started applying at different places because I wanted to go right from being a student to being an employee with no break in between. I had quite a few get back to me, and I accepted the one that looked like the best fit.
It took me maybe a month of working there when I realized that the fit was not compatible at all. Continue reading “Forever Grateful for My Dream Job”
When we were moving we wanted to get into a place that had new construction. That was a few years ago, and we found a nice condo. Now we would like to relocate to a different district in Singapore, so we have been looking at new condominium projects in Singapore. One that caught our eye is the New Futura Condo construction. This type of real estate is an investment like any other. We can make money on our old place to help defray the costs of our new place. We are excited to be making the move as soon as the building we chose to have our condo is in is finished.
You know that the buildings are going to have extraordinary amenities. The infinity lap pool is going to be huge. Then there are communal facilities located within the buildings themselves. One floor has a nice narrow pool with a view over the edge of the tower. We chose a condo in the North Tower of the New Futura Condo. Continue reading “Looking Forward to Moving into Our New Futura Condo in Singapore”
A few weeks ago, I had one of the funniest first dates. A met a girl at a bookstore who was buying a book and we started talking. When talking about hobbies, she told me that she likes to do clay shooting in Bristol, and that it would be nice if I could join her for her next session. I told her that I didn’t know anything about shooting, but I would be glad to join her, and we agreed to meet at the shooting range that weekend. Of all the places to have a date, a shooting range wasn’t the first on my list.
Since I was a novice at shooting, the girl told me that she would show me how to do it. She positioned the gun in my hands and stood behind me. It was one of those classic moves that people usually do in movies when they want to flirt with a person, except instead of a guy doing it to a girl, it was a girl doing it to a guy.
