Fed up

Oh dear. I submitted two quotes for the repairs on my boat following the collision. It was only when the second quote came in that I realised how incomplete the first quote was.... which also turned out to be the cheaper quote. The insurance company have authorised that sum of money for the repairs.

Since then things have changed, emails have been exchanged and I am getting another quote for the repairs.

As it stands this repair is going to cost me a substantial amount of money.

I am hoping it will not cost me the pounds in money and stress that i think but I might as well get fed up while I can. The pounds in stress is enough to cause me great irritation.

Fed up.

I obviously don't know the details but don't forget that the insurance offer is just that, an offer - you don't have to accept it.

Had an instance with my motorbike. I was stationary at a junction when white van man (literally)ran up my backside. The first insurance offer was a joke and didn't even cover the minimum damage to the bike let alone my helmet and clothing but a bit of bartering and swearing later, they upped the offer to a more reasonable one.

Morel of the story, don't give up and keep your pecker up.

Q: What do you call thirty seven insurers chained together at the bottom of the cut?

A: A reasonably good start....

Try not to stress and instead concentrate on the AMAZING!!!

I saw the dent on your bow and thought that's a bad one, it is obviously worse than it looks. I hope it works out properly for you and that those who's fault it was are the ones who pay and not you.

hope this will cheer you up,
your occupation is a loner,
however you are not alone,
of your blog i like the tone,
it is more fluid than a text,
what will you get up to next,
travel and thoughts you share,
ask you out,i would not dare,
the author of this you know,
goodbye i have to go,
very soon i have to move,
along the watery groove.
if you need help..just ASK

how can I ask
When I don't know
Who you are?
How can I shout
When you write
In rhythm and rhyme?
do I need it?
I do not know.
I am too grumpy-
It aint a show
If I knew what
I wanted
I'd have asked long ago...

There is a boater from Thrupp,
At the Jolly and Boat he does sup,
The landlord scares him silly,
Cause he fancies his girlfriend Jilly,
To Annies he now goes for a cup.

From beyond the grave,
so you must all behave,
Edward Lear,
Who's floating near,
I've gotta go, I'm off to a rave.

There will be no more, It's not very fair as this is Bones blog.

Thanks Malcolm,
It is pretty much sorted, for now, i think. The insurance company are being good. Arranging these things is rather stressful...which you probably remember from last years motorcycle incident!
