Really looking forward to some Guinness sausage for my tea. They were a bit brown but smelt OK so shoved them in the oven.

Had a thought, are they meant to be brown due to the booze or pink?

Turns out its pink! Chopped them up for the Magpie that comes to the back garden.

Guinness is cracking stuff, but anything that's supposed to taste like Guinness but isn't actually Guinness is always absolutely awful.

I got a bottle of their "brown sauce" one christmas and it tasted like some kind of medical incinerator runoff.

After last weeks attempt at removing my right thumb with a angle grinder mounted knotwheel, I have managed to get an infection in my other thumb. I am now incapable of doing buttons up, zipping my fly after a piss and tying my own shoelaces ( a skill I have only just leaned). Oh yes, and ow. Quite quite ow.

The courier who has my Volvo clocks seems intent on not delivering it.

It seems I might have tomorrow to whichever depot near Rainham that has them and deliver them myself.

Could really do without the fuckarsing about as the Volvo is currently our only family car.

FFS, I just went to the garage to get a set of wheels out that I am taking to have the tyres removed tomorrow and they're not frigging there. WTF. Where the hell have they gone, I was going to clean and paint them at the weekend.

I've got a load of alloys in the back garden and a further 2 sets of alloys in the garage for other cars but there is absolutely no sign of these steelies anywhere.

I'm wondering if I've left them somewhere where the cars been stored or something or at an old house?

I IZ STOOPID.

Found where I left the wheels, they were at a property Mrs Imp lets out in Keighley. The tenants have confirmed that I left them in the garage but not that they are still there..... They have gone a bit silent all of a sudden.

Hopefully they are just at the cinema or something.

Fingers crossed.

*edit* Reply received. They are still there. Phew. Just need to pop over there at the weekend if I get a chance to pick them up.

What a goon I am.

That sounds a considerably better outcome than it could have been! Both manageable with medication and not imminently nasty.

Yes, but in mitigation, this is the first time I have had trouble with them.

It turns out the road was "busy" with lorries and cars so She hadn't bothered to try and get down there to deliver them.

I have never felt a need to stick my hand up a cow's back end, and so I'm not a vet, if she isn't fussed on delivering packages I think she is in the wrong trade.


Anyway perhaps we will be taking the Volvo on Holiday after all!

Unbefuckinglievable. Thank you Strutherhill Motors. Not only failing to fix the starting problem and MOT'ing my car, you fail to inform me that the car has been nicked, crashed and raided. I finally got fed up with the lack of communication (never return calls), I thought a spot check was in order, and also get the car moved to a nearby specialist. To avoid any nastiness (I am not local), I decided to just engage the 6'5 heavily built chap with the transporter to argue my case for not needing to pay for any of the work done so far (starter, alternator, battery and diagnosis labour) and peg it. I only noticed the internal vandalism when we'd arrived at CM in Kilbride.

Did I mention they have had the car since last September?

Not a happy bunny. But wallet unaided. Apart from the 840 mile round trip, but I'll call in on a client on the way back to get the mileage.

Probably needs a few hundred thrown at it, then sell it on for a few hundred more than that to someone who already wants it for £700. Shh. Don't mention £35. c29924e811ebf6398c36e9179a1d5974.jpg31b9c979cfa96165aab69ddd2b085c28.jpg

No offers on nob_van as of yet. Not even idiotic ones.

It hasn't been long (and yes, it's priced to put the troglodytes off) but I couldn't move for offers of people wanting to buy it (yes, really) when it was on the road/in storage.

Another week and it'll probably hit eBay. Can't wait*.

Unless I've missed it have you made a for sale thread with pics for it?
