Buying buildings, contents and car insurance

Over on my FinTech Warrior blog I’ve been writing about my experience with NatWest Private Insurance. Here’s a snippet and link: I’ve used Direct Line for home and car insurance for quite a while.

The business of buying a tumble dryer

We needed a tumble dryer when we were renting a while ago back in 2011. Since we were living on a temporary basis we didn’t want to spend a lot of money or do much in the way of thinking regarding a tumble dryer. We just needed a fairly basic cheap one. In the end […]

When did chaps in suits start carrying rucksacks?

I got the 713am train this morning and was astonished at the number of chaps on the station platform dressed in suits, but also carrying rucksacks. I added the qualifier, “but”, there, because it is required. You don’t carry a rucksack and wear a sharp suit. It just doesn’t work. You carry a sports bag […]
