Re: wish me luck?

Best of luck - on both counts! I am not sure which of your current predicaments is more scary ... however, just console yourself with the fact that Mrs G's ex is no doubt portly, balding and with a gammy leg now

Re: wish me luck?

Keep my fingers crossed - if you fail the exam at least after 8 years it's time for a change. Time to jump out of the nest and do some serious stuff
