  1. Just finished and released this: Not often I actually declare a track finished, but I'm happy enough with it
  2. Just got back from ASDA and bought more broccoli than I need, happy to share if you're still in need. You'll need to drive up here and get it though.
  3. When you post videos here, or anywhere online, you have to expect feedback. It won't always be what you want to hear.
  4. It's all charged as one amount, but yeah my fuel costs are included. To make invoicing simpler, we agreed a flat fee per day.
  5. Cheers for all the in depth replies, chaps. This should be really straightforward in my case, as it's about £4k in earnings with no expenses - literally just invoicing for my time, as it's been working on stands at trade shows. I invoice for a days work and that's it. I have 9 invoices in total which are all simple, so it shouldn't be too tricky, just need the UTR to show and I can have a crack at it - I think I've done all the other stuff you need to do, so it's just that, hopefully!
  6. Cheers guys. @Luke Rainbird that pretty much confirms what I'd read, just wanted to double check. @Tom Booth - yep, full time employed, but invoicing for weekend work. Estimating my tax bill to be about £1.5k for the sole trader work. I'll give them a call and explain then
  7. Conflicting information on Google, so I thought I'd ask here, because TF knows everything. I've just registered as a sole trader and want to do my tax return for 2018 & 2019, but I don't have a UTR. It looks like they send me one in 10 days, is that correct? I might miss the 31/01/2020 deadline, by the looks of it.
  8. I used to read papers / watch the news and believe whatever they said. My stepdad still does and he's adamant that the Daily Mail can't publish lies. As I've got older, I've learnt to question everything - I've learnt that the media ALWAYS has a bias. What's written in a newspaper is, nine times out of ten, the opinion of the billionaire that owns it. If it's something I'm interested in, I'll check multiple sources before I take it as fact. Drives me nuts when people recite a newspaper and argue to the death about it. I had quite a heated debate with my stepdad once when he said "everything on the internet is just written by some bloke" - the Daily Mail is exactly that, the columns he reads are just some bloke. The Daily Mail is one of the worst rags out there, but they all spout as much crap as they can get away with (And sometimes they don't, hence being sued pretty often). If the media didn't publish lies, I think the results of recent elections, Brexit etc would be very different.
  9. The click-bait to end all click bait.
  10. Might explain why he's struggling to find one
  11. Strong bump there mate. This is a bike forum, so unlikely, but then many obscure answers have been given here over the years...
  12. I'm playing on Twitch at 10:00 tonight, as part of the Motivation event - 8 DJ's from around the world, 2 hour sets... Catch me live at 10pm (10 mins to go!)
  13. You're right, it's mesmerising!
  14. In three months time, the Angry Thread post will be something like "HMRC f**ked my tax up, now I owe them £1000!"
  15. I watched that when he first did it, it's pretty interesting. Not exactly underrated, but I watch 'Bald and Bankrupt' and 'Indigo Traveller' - both go to some pretty cool places, I'd recommend them if you've not seen them before.
