- Ghost of (STW) Christmas past
Haven’t been around on here much due to not really owning any bikes anymore…
But I just wanted to once again say thank you to everyone that helped me out last Christmas, for those that don’t remember I had recently become a single dad after breaking up with my abusive ex partner and as a result had no choice but to leave my job working for a well known suspension servicing company…
And the people of STW donated presents/money for my kids, both new and 2nd hand and all were greatly appreciated and most of them (some haven’t survived 2 boys using them…) Are still used to this day, I had a tough time last year it it made such a big difference to my Christmas when I knew the kids weren’t going to be empty handed.
I’m happy to report things are a lot better this year, I have a part time job working in retail it’s not well paid but it’s certainly better than nothing and it is way better than living in the current benefits system where you are never more than one step away from a sanction or being told you have to apply for something else as you are no longer entitled.
I have a new girlfriend who makes me much happier than. I ever thought I would be. So in summary THANK YOU for getting me through such a crap time in my life last year and made it so I was able to carry on and improve things 😀
I hope everyone is doing good and this place is just as awesome as always.Posted 8 months agowigglesMember
I can donate a stem and bars to start you off if you want them?
Thanks very much for the offer but actualy have several parts of bikes and a crappy hybrid bike so not entirely bikeless but don’t have the time at the moment anyway between work and the kids. I still have all my bike clothes/shoes so hopefully one day!Posted 8 months agosingletrackmindMember
ahh , Chritmas int Christmas till you have given someone a power kite , and aTower of London poppy.
Glad to hear things are on the up.
STW is populated by tossers with very big hearts it would seem , which is abit of an oxymoron but hey ho seems to workPosted 8 months agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
Honestly, wiggles, this is so good to hear.
I can attest to the fact that this place is just as good as ever. Even if folk on here complain about the update, and fight about religion, and get on each others’ wick from time to time, there is hardly one of them for whom I wouldn’t mind buying a drink!Posted 8 months ago
