I thought it was an art installation.

Demonstrating the futility of hope against intransigent uncertainty 

 

 

 

 

Or somesuch bollocks 

I'd call it "Trust Lucas", because that's twice now I've trusted Lucas and their dubious compatability lists and been bitten on the arse because of it.

Chuck it in, leave it for a week & then hoover it out again.

Covid had culled my yearly trip to Tesco for my "get on the way" trip.

Aimlessly wonder around with a trolly blocking the asiles ,best years was when i could take my son in a wheel chair and he could enjoy winding up the fussy ones who got on the way any other time of the year ... And the footplates were deadly !

Perhaps next year ..

I'm very tired of the problems I've had with the Audi to have the carburetor replaced on it. Feels like every time I try to do something about it it kicks me in the balls and takes my money without anything positive happening.

Cars are ungrateful bastards like that. All vehicles in fact. The only vehicle I've ever had that didn't cause problems was a fixed gear bicycle and they're fairly impractical if you don't have legs of steel.

I can't remember if it's your daily or not, but if it's not don't be afraid to step away from it for a while. That's what I've done with my 205, I haven't even looked at it for a month or two, it'll probably be after my birthday in January before I look at it again. Taking a step back can give you a clearer view of the problem when you come back to it.

Luckily it is not my daily have a modern Hyundai for this. And yes they can be but I have so far been lucky with most of the cars I have owned. The last car of the same age I owned was a 240 I owned it for almost 3 years with almost no problems. But is a good idea as you say with taking a break I have already taken a month break from this and possibly I will take another.

Volvos don't count, I've had less problems with moon mileage 850s than I have with the rest of my cars. The first one I had was low mileage and had endless problems though.

Supermarket waste 

Went into Sainsbury's , big pile of cabbage reduced to 10p because it had 21st on the plastic bag and the leaves were yellowing

I worked on markets for 15 years , you'd see the veg traders with a knife cutting the outer leaves off and this is what was underneath , clean and fresh , not in the bin because of a date stamped on a plastic bag

same at Tesco , they left a box of raw carrots out for Santa's Reindeer , so I picked one up and eat it much to some nosey Parker's withering looks , then in the q to get out of the car park I eat my main course of pork pies , which to the person stuck behind , demonstrated I really did not give one  , even if they were in a rush !!

Not grumpy more fucking heartbreaking and heartwarming really, I'm a member of a local facebook page which is basically people giving away stuff, last week or two it's been full of people sorting through their kids toys and clothes for a clear out which is nice but the sheer amount of people who are struggling and are clamouring for bits to give to their own kids is bloody awful.  

Seems there is also a trend for people buying extra shopping to make up a Christmas dinner kit for a hard up family and offering that up, it really shouldn't be needed in this day and age but sadly it is :(  I fucking love my city 

Not sure what is up with me lately but this kind of stuff brings out the tears easily
