    Was chatting with my accountant and he doesn't even know. I do a lot of stone work, plastering, bathroom refits, tiling and gut outs to renovate by me. Even build small garages. You could say I'm a small builder without building. Working towards being a builder building garages,houses etc... Ridiculous how busy I am these days.

    Remembering back to the MT days about the Irish catastrophic thread and Dan saying to me to retrain because my line of work will never be the same again. I believed him at the time but now, I'm getting the same amount of wages and sometimes more. I have a feeling brexit is going to make this counyco boom again. My plans ate, make as much money until I'm 50 then GTF out and spend rest of my days at something else. Your along time dead as the aul saying goes. Fuck working till 65-75. 12 years a d I'm out even if it's to go back on the rock and roll(dole).

    I haven't been on here for a while due to some personal issues its all .sorrted now just my health is really bad at the minute.so unable to train

    What the fcik happened here it seems everyone's disappeared why?

    I always loved this place it always felt like a big family who supported each other seems a bit hypocritical for me to say that having not posted for so long but trust me I had my reasons

    Anyway I hope you're all doing well, I did miss the banter with you all

    This is exactly right come on lads (and women) how many times has being a member on here pulled us through some bad times

    We made this place the best training forum and yeah it always struggled with low traffic numbers which I never understood,but never have I been part of a place where everyone had your back.

    I personally owe a lot to this place and its members so I can't just let it die on its arse

    I can't be the only one who's wondering how skinnyjoes love life is going or whether he's turned into the next Peter Sutcliffe lol

    Wouldn’t take much to get it going again would it tbf? Most of us still pop in now and then but never post.

    Suppose life has moved on for most of us though hasn’t it but this place was always a mix of life, agony aunt advice and training wasn’t it so I’m sure there’s plenty to discuss.

    Just needs an effort from a few of us.

    Rents,ronnie and dv see already we have 4 people posting including myself.

    Rents your spot on it was more of a advice forum we all had, and probably still do have problems and could talk and help each other out,training was just something that basically brought us all together.

    Now where's rudedog he owes me a spiderman rug lol

    Ah, nice to read some of these posts.

    I've been busy as fuck with work, got a good career break 3 years ago so went for it.

    My little lad started having partial focal seizures about 4 years ago, we had an awful time, we nearly lost him and he's had a long recovery (he went blind in one eye and lost the ability to speak) so we put all our attention on him.

    Still, see one or two of you on FB when I'm not winding the fuck up out of most people (hiya Tac)

    Training's been a bit on and off, I'm 47 now and really feeling it after I train, only dabble for several weeks before holidays. One thing I did realise was that the juice really messes us up psychologically, it's only after being off for long spells you realise how bad it is. Not chasing size really helps.

    Hope your all good chaps x

    It’s not until your off it, you realise the impact it has on you. Didn’t see it when I was younger, but as got older you notice it.

    Hello guys. Hope everyone is doing well? Good to see people posting

    Glad to see your on the mend RAD!!!!

    I will reiterate what eveyone else has said being on the gear wrecks you mentally.

    So whats everyone doing with their lives? Still training? Different hobbies etc?

    It's the only forum I read any more, there may not be masses of content, but what does exist isn't boring and repetitive.

    As for why I've been training less - two kids to bring up, two jobs and a house to decorate take almost every moment I have. Add to that all the issues with plumbing, leaking windows etc. and I barely get chance to eat and sleep properly. I really want to get back into training, but I'm not the kind of guy who does things by halves.
