Podds. I had the same problem. I solved it by selling it and getting one that didn't have a pond in the boot.

I'm afraid I'd probably have to pay someone to take mine........it's pretty ancient although it has been a really good reliable car.......apart from de-icing the inside again this morning!

We have looked at alternatives with more bike and dog space in a very haphazard way but not sure of the financing side as we are still paying mortgage and kitchen off!

There seem to be so many "deals" out there that I'm never sure if I'm being taken for a ride (no pun intended!) or not!!

There are times I wish I had a bit more common sense and knowledge about the world........Mr P and I are bit too other worldly sometimes.........or just plain gormless as my mother points out!!

Evening All

A question for the collective brilliance which is the WAISTER lounge......

How do I get the damp out of my car?

It doesn't leak per se but is always slightly damp which means all through the winter there is always a shed load of condensation on the inside windows and however often I dry it off it returns............and this evening to add insult to injury the condensation had frozen to form ice on the windscreen on the inside when I left work...................

Don't fancy that commute JFF I have to say

Ah Chuggy - so glad your reputation for being smart remains unsullied   Really hope that someone can come up with an explanation though for you sooner rather than later

And congrats on the anniversary - and more congrats on cycling in minus figures to go and eat!!  Think I'd have called a taxi 

If you're cycling up hills Daffs then that's good going..........

DL, glad you're enjoying your job overall  I suppose there are many aspects of mine I do enjoy.............but many I don't

Today I have spent sifting claims for places in Y7 in Sept 2017 and of the 65 claiming sibling status about 20% are out and out lies or dubious in the extreme........... 

I understand parents wanting the best for their kids but it's so unfair on the honest parents who actually tell the truth and accept the results.....

As we have 767 registrations of interest for just 160 places (minus however many statemented types we get) there are going to be a lot of disappointed parents once again this year so the least I can do is make the process as honest and fair as possible for all parents...............

It should be against the law to have to work for our dosh

I'd happily settle for the dosh and no work....

Today I am trying to catch up with a back log of nearly 80 tri club membership applications whilst trying to recuperate.......

We are also changing broadband provider.........wish me luck..........I've read the destructions and they appear pleasingly simple but you all know how inept I am technologically...............

Hope you managed to get home to bed Meldy

Hope the leggies aren't too bad today Yums

And yes........the burning question........did Chuggie get her L and R mixed up?!!

Evening.....can I just say how cheesed off I am with 2017?

The ribs were bad enough but to add the sickness bug this weekend was just not funny.......so day off tomorrow to recover.....

Well run Yums

Well birthdayed Melds......

The best birthday celebrations cover several days

No snow here, no ice here, windy but nothing more than is usual for our part of the world.......rather disappointing really!!

apparently there's snow in every direction about 10 miles beyond us but our little peninsula as usual is doing its own thing

Sounds like a good day Melds - and I believe your celebrations will continue over the weekend too

The haddock and egg sounds lovely too

Just started raining here at lunchtime but wind is nothing special for Plannitt Ffannitt yet

I am looking forward to the tidal storm surge at lunchtime tomorrow instead I may wonder down to see if it's exciting or not! 

Right, off home now - going to see what degree of piddling we've had this afternoon

I too have unfinished business with Austria............... 

Nobody to blame but myself and it's haunted me the last 18 months!

So providing they don't bring the date forward that would be my preference

Happy Birthday Old Girl

Indeed Happy Birthday to the Old Bird  

I HATE LED lamp posts DL........when you drive down the road the effect is of flashing....I always have to lower the sun visor!

Aww Chuggy - that does not sound good having a dodgy lower log...........

Sluggy - SM could certainly not wish for a better daughter and I'm sure she appreciates it all (even if I suspect she doesn't always show or tell you!!)

Sadly I am still rather sore......   Can now just about manage putting my own socks and shoes on but still can't cough, sneeze or poop scoop!!  Am slowly reducing the ibuprofen too as I don't like taking it for too long.........am really hoping that by the weekend I might be able to live like a normal human again but not holding my breath!!
