I don't like Mondays


After last weeks bundle of joy arrived, albeit 5 months late (Yes, you should be ashamed!) it was nice to recieve another parcel so quickly. Unfortunately this one had a bitter-sweet taste to it. After the sad, premature demise of my beloved 310s it has taken Inov8 several months and a dozen e-mails to replace them. They also couldn't replace them with the same model due to lack of stock and finally ticking the 'Commercial Sample' box on the customs sticker means my 'free' replacements cost me £30.

And my new passport hasn't arrived yet.

And I'm still waiting to move into my new apartment.

And it's still raining.

never ending eh, you could be living in England doing the same job you've done for 9 years, listening to the students in the flat 2 floors below you playing hardcore gabba till the early hours...

haha, giving yourself comments :D

I hope your passport arrives, that the move goes smooth and that we see each other on Friday evening!

Holdfast - you are right, life isn't so bad, you just need to learn a little patience. Stop being a miserable bastard.

Dave - aye, I left all that behind and I'm glad. I'm just hormonal. I'll be over it by tomorrow :-)

Hendrik - fingers crossed something goes my way this week! My passport turning up would be the best!

I looked at the new updated 310 the other day. Love them. More cushioning as well. Use to have two bars indicating the support level on the website. Now three and same weight. I will not rub it in any more.

Kate - you'll be glad to hear he woke up one the right side of the bed this morning :-)

Martin - the new 310's look much better too and I was initially disappointed not to be getting a pair but the 330s actually appear to be even more comfortable straight out of the box! I also needed the replacements to my defective 310s to arrive before my trip to Finland so I had to go with the 330s for now. I will get a pair of the new 310s when I visit the UK and try and run a side-by-side comparison but over here we're rapidly heading to that time of year where I start to wear lined shoes and boots on a more regular basis!
