Am I feeling good?  ;D.  I have just paid the last instalment on the loan I got two years ago for my new central heating, I have been told that the new car I ordered on 1st December should be delivered by 7th February, (and I received a Ä500 shopping voucher the other day for buying the car  :thumbsup:), also, I requested on 13th November that I be allowed to cut my monthly working hours from 144 to 120, (i.e. drop 2 shifts a month). I finally got a reply this morning, (shows how good the bosses are at 'man management'!), saying that it was all sorted and the new hours start from next week!  (I cut my hours from 168 to 144 12 months ago). And, more importantly, my recent health issues are still being kept in check!  Life can be good. :claphappy:  :beers:

Yes I did. But I am sat here at home writing this reply, rather than being on the train across the Canadian Rockies, (or something similar).  :)

@Lindi
Thanks for the suggestions. I did try bending them up. Nothing.

I've finally been able to correspond with someone at Hatton's who have given me a straight answer. Seems I'll be sending it in for a refund, saying goodbye to it forever.

It was on preorder since May! Talk about a let down. (And I know many people waited much longer)


Just one more thought. when you put the body back on are the small tabs at the ends of the chassis engaging correctly?


Bingo was his Name-O!!

This makes me feel like a front-line, major league tool! I was being too dainty putting things back together, and it was/is a hard push to get the ends to snap back all the way. With more pressure, I heard a distinct "snap" and now all lights work in all directions.

A lesson learned! I'm a tool, I need more patience and this place remains the best forum on Earth.  :NGaugersRule:

The thermometer on the outside of my French windows tells me the temperature is 36 degrees C ('cos it's currently in direct sunlight). The wooden panels at the bottom of the garden are steaming away merrily.
Why don't I feel that warm? :cold:
Still, it's good to see the sun is still in the firmaments :)

Itís not because you are sitting there in your pink onesie, is it?😇
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

I refuse to be drawn on where the onesie's button holes are, but it certainly needs ironing :laugh3:

Yesterday, the weather being clement, I opened up the double French doors on my conservatory a.k.a. mancave to air the room. Imagine my horror late yesterday afternoon when I tried to lock up and couldn't. One door had dropped on it's hinges meaning I couldn't close and lock it, and as the other door closes and locks onto the first one I was bujiggered. All I could do at that time of day was pull them as close as I could and wind my bicycle padlock cable round the handles inside, my thinking being if anyone tried to open the doors they'd wake me up with the noise.
Anyway, to the happy bit. My Mum recommended a young chap who repairs locks, windows and doors so I called him this morning. An hour later he was here, removed the double glazing from the dropped door, put new packers in to re-balance the door and, hey ho, all was done in less than an hour at a cost of just £25 (I didn't have a fiver so gave him £30). My peace of mind and the safety of Kimbolted is well worth the price. I think I'll sleep better tonight :)

I know that feeling well.  Having moved into a new build we've had to have man-with-ommer in to fix virtually every glazed door and window.  At least it's free under warranty :unimpressed:
