What credit crunch??!

Well its been nearly a week since i left 'Birmingistan' & travelled back to the luxury of the sarf!!
The exhibition went realy well for the company i work for & myself & fellow bull shitters.....(oooops i mean sales men!) all exceeded our targets!! Now in this time of strife & problems this was a major victory,it shows that maybe the economic downturn hasnt ruined every business.
Yes i know the car,construction & financial people are in the brown stuff but peeps have still got some dough to spend on caravans & all the bits that go with them,the show also contained boats,big fucking boats some of them,and they reported good sales figures so its not all bad news.
I suppose if you have got money you might as well spend it,keeping in the bank earns you f all.

Another sign was seen when we went out,every restaraunt was heaving,even one spectaculary over priced,down trodden Italian we visited was uber busy mid week,and they ran out of Peroni which was a shitter i can tell you!!
Best night up there was def had in Solihull. We ate in a place called 'Must', (we go every year!) its a kind of Thai/Eastern place untill about midnight,then turns into a mini disco. We drank like fishes then danced like spazzers....oddly enough i skipped brekky the next morning,must have been the umpteeth raspberry sambuca!! Thoroughly recommended for a top night,book though,it is very popular.
Cant really write about poker as i havnt had time to much since being home,will crack on next week.....we did have 1 stt up in the hotel.....8 players,winner takes all with a tenner buy in....obv i came 2nd...fml!!!!!!!

And the Glorious Blues you ask????? We beat Villa,we beat Juventus........we are Back!!!!!!

I guess people want to shell out on caravans and the like instead of jetting off on holiday abroad.

Saying that, there is a motorhome place near me and some of them are like £60k so must be nice to be able to afford one!

True Pud,the Euro isnt worth jack so people will stay here,also your moneys worth less than jack in the bank so you may as well spend it (if you have got it ...unlike me!!!),plus buying big ticket items on the book has never been cheaper.
Although any recession/down turn kicks some people in the balls,we always do well.
