  1. What a lovely dog, hope all goes well with her, she seems to have taken well to you guys.
  2. Don’t. It adds some comedy value when most things end up looking like a mk1 Citroen C3

    Truck Shite

    I swear I’ve been in that very truck. When I was a kid I used to go to my dads work on a Saturday morning, usually got paid for cleaning the vans, cars, wagons or whatever was around at the time. Ian Craig used to occasionally do deliveries for my dad and I’d sometimes go out with the drivers if there wasn’t much doing in the yard. I remember seeing one of Ian Craig’s motors and thinking I’d never seen one before, so maybe this.

    A little late to the Wera party, but another vote from me. I’ve got some of their Kraftform screwdrivers, some of the small diddy ones for electronics, PCs etc and a couple of their VDE drivers - used to have a set but somebody wandered off with some from my desk at work. Gits.
  5. What’s making me grin today is the sheer, simple pleasurable act of having a day off work today and it being a bank holiday weekend. Have had a shitey long week which started last Friday so I’m more than ready for a break. Looking forward to a nice long walk with the dog shortly 😀
  6. Holy moly, my dad briefly had a B plate Carlton in that exact colour and trim combo back in what was probably about 1989/90 ish.
  7. I guess you’ve been at the event that I was supposed to be at today :/ Have heard from my colleague who did actually make it that day 1 was good, and he’s also managed to score some decent swag for me
  8. Wasps can do one. Bees I’m ok with, but wasps can feck right off. I tolerate them to an extent but once they start not taking the hint then I get grumpy with them. Ever encountered a wood wasp? Fecking huge things with a stinger that’d put the shiters up even the hardiest of souls, but fortunately I believe they won’t sting. Mind you, if that’s the case then what’s the point of having a stinger that could double up for use in a piercing parlour. Not my thumb BTW!
  9. I really enjoy reading your write ups, particularly these ones on your van. I have a bit of a soft spot for this vintage merc van and it’s great to see the amount of detail you’re willing to go to.
  10. Frustration levels are high with this process. What’s even more stupid is that if I’m appointed in to the permanent post I have to go through the whole proving identity and eligibility to work in the UK thing, even though I’ve worked for this organisation for *years*. Oh and will also have to get another disclosure check done and reapply for security screening.
