Off on my travels again tomorrow. Do I take the 2CV or the Starlet? The latter has a full tank of fuel and is off to its new owner on Monday.

Even the dodgy eBay sellers who don’t ask for docs don’t make “show” plates any more!


Not asking for docs is asking for trouble for a UK-based supplier. (Even if you pretend you're not UK-based)

https://www.liverpoo...-spared-7004740

Making reproduction dealer plates is also problematic for a UK-based supplier. (Even if they aren't falling foul of number plate supply laws, then they could come unstuck for trademark infringement)

This bloke was done twice.

Overseas suppliers can (more or less) do what they like and send them in.

End users rarely have problems with number plates unless they are taking the piss.

I don't particularly agree with the law, but it is what it is.

I bought a set of plates off eBay last week, I had to send them a photo of my licence and v5 as proof so wasn't as much fuss as I feared. I didn't want to post any docs anywhere!

Can't both are NHS jobs so banded & I'm already top of the band so can't inflate it.

Housing & shopping. It's in the Highlands & just doing a weekly shop costs more up there.

same guy done twice, went the extra mile to avoid getting caught the 2nd time, suspended sentence. I'd say he was lucky.

Just been and moved the Jeep - not been started in 8 weeks and fired up first time!  No jump pack, nuffin! Turned it round and moved it as close to the wall as possible - this required a 400 point turn and is still 4 feet away... I just couldn;'t be arsed to try any more! I 'think' there is now room to get the Betty Fiesta in the garage as well as the Jeep?

 

I'd use it but I am now lumbered with that sodding Astra estate and as it's on the road, needs to be insured so I can't transfer it. Arse.

 

 

 

 

Still shouldn't complain as the Astra bailed me out of the shit big time, so I am an ungrateful wretch and I apologise :(

Doncaster.

 

It does as not many of the small towns have big supermarkets, just smaller branches that charge crazy 'tesco local' type prices. My lass lives on an Island that has two co-ops, people still take the £27 return (car & driver) ferry to the mainland to do a monthly shop as it works out cheaper.

it's Oban though not some remote island 70 miles of the coast of Auchternowhere. Oban has a decent sized Tesco, who's prices will be the same as any other Tesco in Scotland.

i think it might even have a lidl!

 

As for property it might be more expensive than Doncaster but it'll be the same as most of the rest of Scotland. My sister recently moved to Dunoon and it was super cheap.

 

I though the salary banding went between NHS board? Is the banding not potentially different for Argyll and Bute?

The salary is about £300 higher per year as the Scottish bands are a fraction different, so not enough to notice.

 

As to tesco, tbh I hadn't checked I'd just assumed. A Lidl would be good, I'll have to look. None of this matters if I don't get the job anyway, it closes friday so won't even hear about interviews for a bit.

170 miles in the 2CV today. Feels quite perky after the Dacia. Maybe just because it's more rev happy.

On the downside, I forgot that the petrol tank leaks when full, and one mirror kept on getting blown onwards at motorway speeds. Also, traffic. Too much of it after recent adventures!

NEW CAR is not a bad steed at all.

Small person isn't sure about the lack of PAS for his driving lessons... he's also struggling to reach the pedals a bit.

I have reattached the chrome* trim on the bootlid which improves matters a great deal; I am currently sat in my front room listening to it sizzle gently in the rain.c362512b4ecbceccb98f8df8d74a041a.jpgddd9b2f759b429eb95b5fc888392eac8.jpg1e433e9bae3b889c9545a7989c87b039.jpg

Resettlement & relocation? It says it's possible in the description so if it gets to interview I will be asking.
