Turning 40 stinks:mad:

There must be an internal clock somewhere that sets off when you hit this age that makes you do all sorts of crazy shit:confused:

What have I done?

Quit my job as a postie. Shit pay but the guys that I worked with were top notch and it was a secure job at least.

Bought a business (although I'm not trading yet I should be up and running by the end of this month).

Decided to call it a day with my partner of almost 10 years.

Now I've got to try and find somewhere else to buy (not an easy thing to do when you have no frigging income coming in at the moment) and on top of that comes all of the other things that I need to do to save a bit of cash. One of them being the sale of my Tre:bawl: I know I've had more than my fare share of bad luck with it but I'll miss the beastie when she has to go:bawl:

If I'm not on here for a while lads it's because I have other things on my mind and not because I can't be arsed to post anymore.

I tell ya .... I'm frigging stressed to the max just now and and to top it off I have no frigging idea what's going to happen next. Everything's just happened so fast that I can't keep up with what's going on:(

Al (Bikeless, single, jobless, soon to be homeless and going grey faster than a fast thing on fast pills:eek:)

Hi Al,

Sorry to hear that things are not going too well with you at the moment.

Best thing you could do right now would be to throw your heart and soul into that new company of yours, at least it might take your mind of the other things and could help you to get established that wee bit quicker.

Hope things settle down soon and your back to your auld self before you know it.

Give me a bell if you want to blether about anything.

Sorry to hear of your bad luck Al.
Keep your pecker up.You know what they say ,as one door closes another opens.
I have been married twice and am on my 4th serious relationship.So it took me a long time to find the right partner.All i have got to do now is weather the storm of trying to make my business profitable with no money and i am laughing.
Like laurence said just lose yourself in the new business and the rest will come,you never know what is round the corner.
All the best,
Zebo.;)

Hey Al, chin up fella!

I refused to get married until I was 35 as I wanted to get all the 'shagging' around out of my system first and also didn't want to marry young being in the Military with all the moving every 2 - 3 years. I eventually got married at 35 years and 1 month (and it wasn't planned that way!)

2 years, 3 months and 17 days later I had the bomb shell dropped on me that I was getting divorced! This really took the wind out of my sails and it took nearly as long as the total time I was married to ge tthe divorce finalized without 'her' getting her dirty mitts on a substantial amount of my pension (I still ended up somewhere in the region of £20,000 out of pocket mind)

Bottom line is mate, you get through these things, it takes time, you feel like your world has collapsed and there is little point in moving on, but each dawn brings a new day and you recover a little every time you open your eyes!

You will get through your problematic times and be a better man for it!

I can't offer you any Jack Daniels, however I have a 2 litre bottle of Jim Beam that is sat in my drinks cabinet that has had probably 2 shots from it - if you fancy a break at the other end of the UK, you are more than welcome to shack up in my spare bedroom!

Al,
speaking from experience..it is always rough for us late bloomers but you'll soon see when you get to my age that after your 40th b'day..it just gets better and better. Until 40, I worked my ass off and made averyone a lot of money until I decided to start doing things for myself. Never looked back since.

You'll see I'm right..so hang in there buddy!
