  1. What a lovely dog, hope all goes well with her, she seems to have taken well to you guys.
  2. That is fantastic!
  3. Been watching The Equalizer on there too!
  4. 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.
  7. 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 😀
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Gorgeous glorious day to be off work. And I’ve been stuck indoors all day writing an application for the permanent version of the job I’ve been doing for the last 12 months. I hate writing applications at the best of times, but particularly when it’s for a job you’re already doing, to be reviewed by people you work with for an organisation you’ve worked for for years and years. All being well I’ll be interviewed next week. When I’m off on leave. If this one isn’t successful I’ll then have to interview for my own permanent job because we’re going through a structural redesign. Also means I have to complete a skills and experience document separate to the application process as there’s a risk I’ll be displaced. Sodding thing has to be in for 8am on Tuesday. I was going to do it today to get it out the way but after writing that application by brain is fried so it can feckin well wait.
  14. Pissed all the fluid out?
  15. That is um, astonishing!
  16. F1 used KERS in I think 2009 and 2011, at least some teams did. I seem to recall Williams developing a flywheel based system but don’t know if they ever raced it.
  17. Daughter has managed to break the screen on her laptop. Oh well, that’ll be a wee job for Tuesday after work when the replacement part arrives.
  18. Saab 9-3 with 150k miles, £600 in Alloa https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/saab-9-3/1336066782?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social
  19. I’m sure something would fit in there. Isn’t there someone on the forum who has a C5 who could experiment?
  20. Sinclair C5 anybody? https://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/sinclair-c5/1335162452?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social
