  1. Had my first drink since Christmas on Sunday. One double vodka, got tipsy on just that and enjoyed it for all of ten minutes before wondering why I used to love it so much and feeling crappy. Probably won't bother again.
  2. Thanks, that's really helpful. I've already done a vinyasa YTT. The course I'm looking to do in May is a 50 hour yin yoga training which should count as a CPD since it's still yoga. I also want to do a yoga nidra course and probably a pregnancy training in the next year or so.
  3. I think I'll be in profit by the end of the tax year on a cash basis and will definitely be in profit on a traditional accounting basis though.
  4. Thanks. So that's normal for the traditional accounting method that HMRC are talking about here? https://www.gov.uk/self-employed-records How much more of a ballache is that over cash basis? You can do can cash basis or traditional as a sold trader under 150k, over that you have to do traditional.

    Tax question

    I've recently finished my yoga teacher training and want to do a few more trainings that would fall under the scope of CPD and thus be allowable as expenses. I've earned the square root of fuck all this year so would like these trainings to count as expenses for the next tax year. I've got my eye on one in May - can I book and pay for it now or would I need to wait three weeks for it to count as a 2019-2020 expense?
  6. The thing is even the token Muslims can turn into Jihadis. You often hear that terrorists used to drink etc but became more devout.
  7. I actually read the post you replied to and thought "Stokie's typing has really come along".
  8. Yeah, Andrex used to be really soft and discernable from supermarket own brand. Now I'm 99.9% sure their "classic clean" is the exact same toilet roll as Morrison's own brand (the pattern is the exact same minus the Andrex logo and there as sandpapery as each other).
  9. Sucralose is bad for your microbiome. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5522834/
  10. Private just lets you skip the queue.
  11. I can't watch the video - what's going on?
  12. Chuka makes me shudder. He's more Blair than Blair himself.
  13. Fishy tomatoes? Eugh, fishy EU pork is bad enough. Fed some pork belly to the cats last night as it tasted like rotten fish.
  14. That's from last April and is saying that once we signed the withdrawal agreement we'd owe the £39 billion even if we ultimately left without a deal at the end of the transition period.
  15. No snow in South West London after arranging my life around the possibility the transport would be fucked this morning.
  16. Oh it's definitely theatre. For what end I'm not sure.
  17. Yoga isn't all it's cracked up to be on that front and if you do a lot of it as your only exercise you'll likely fuck your knees and your shoulders. Knees because it over developes quads over glutes and hamstrings. Shoulders because we do a lot of pushing and no pulling. You want to do something like rock climbing to balance it out.
  18. May as well give an update while I'm here. I went through meat aversion back in November. I lived on mozzarella and mascarpone for a few days which triggered a rash then duck eggs for a few days which caused horrible gas. I'm still off beef and lamb which is what I was exclusively eating at the time. I've also tried reintroducing butter, ghee, peppermint tea and chamomile tea. They all seemed fine for anything up to three weeks before causing digestive problems. I've sussed out how to lose weight on this diet. I have 375g of pork belly for breakfast and dinner with a 200-300g chicken breast for lunch. If I have pork belly for lunch I don't lose weight and if I eat the rendered fat then I gain at an astonishing rate. I figured this out in mid November and have lost 6.7kg since then which puts me 5kg below my starting weight. Health wise I'd say I'm at least back to where I was before the relapse that brought on this change of diet. It's hard to judge though because I'm comparing summer, not hanging out with ill people and not taking public transport with winter, getting the tube and spending all day at the weekends with at least a couple of people who have a cold. Some aspects of my health are definitely better. My brain fog is much improved. Not only have I been studying and retaining knowledge fairly easily, I've been managing to do it in the evening. My husband thought I was always pissed when he got home from work because I'd be slurring and unable to form a coherent sentence. Even back in June I had big problems remembering words, particularly in the evening but now I can rattle off a load of Sanskrit and anatomical terms no problem.
  19. Our landlord has it but had to pay for a plumber anyway as they weren't going to send anyone for almost a week. Not British Gas though.
  20. That picture shows your full name and who you bank with and you've posted your address here before. You might want to edit.
  21. I can see no downsides to this.
