Lol that's the only way I could afford it
Count me in!
that would be a brilliant idea lol!
One of my many :-D
Yep, me too
But perhaps he paid for the villa with the profits from his secret soap factory...
Someone really needs to explain this soap factory thing to me.
...Cos I'm a bit fik, like.
Me too and I didn't get the spot joke either?
I don't know why we haven't all clubbed together and bought a villa. Is it possible to do? We all dream of owning one why not this way?
Which spot joke? I must have missed that one.
It is obviously possible to do but I would not recommend it!
Several years ago six of my friends and I clubbed together and bought a house in Mijas, Spain.
The problems started to occur when many of us decided to take a holiday during the "normal" holiday period of say May to September and unless we got in quick, the place was already booked by my colleagues and/or their families.
It therefore seemed crazy to own a place that unless we were lucky, we found it difficult to stay there.
In the end we sold the place, and fortunately made a small profit on the sale.
and then you have to get everyone to agree on how to furnish, whether to fix something etc etc etc! lol
Ah yes there is that too... oh well
This one? Don't know what it means?
Oh, I got that one - put the word 'spot' after the first letter of my surname.
Sent you a message.
OMG, how much I've missed your wit. "Soap factory owning megalomaniacâ€¦" I've not laughed that hard at a post in such a long time!!
Tony, congratulations on buying a home here in Florida!!! Now, that's not nearly as fun as your being pregnant, but it will be much more fun for you! (The home I mean, of course).
So did you get the Range Rover?
ironically enough, I once shared that dream. Lovely black range rover vogue... and I got just about to the stage where I could afford it without being stupid and everyone I spoke to started telling me horror stories about them. We had a guy start at work with one and the fancy suspension just kept dieing. Then every other person I spoke to would have a different nightmare. It was compounded by me going for a test drive and the thing breaking down half way up a hill... literally stopped, every light on the dash lit up and wouldn't restart.
I got the message, not destined to have one
Ha! No chance of that now - what was the Range Rover fund turned into the deposit on the villa.
I've had to search for... more economical transportation.
