  1. I don't like the prospect of changing the 405's glow plugs tomorrow... Besides the fact it will mean standing outside in minus temperatures, I lack mechanical skill and even an oil change can be tricky for me, so this should be interesting!! That said, I do have a tendancy to surprise myself and after all - how hard can it be?
  2. Indeed it would. You wouldn't expect a private landlord to pay for a downstairs toilet to be fitted to their property, so I think it is unfair to expect that of the council (as much as I do hate them...). Having experienced IBS myself though, I fully empathise with what he is going through.
  3. I really think that's your problem Tom. I understand why you don't want to take medication, but surely it is at least worth trying? If it makes things worse then stop, but it might make your life better. It is a different health problem, but I used to suffer from daily migraines which affected my whole life (especially driving), but since being prescribed a medication for it I haven't had a severe migraine in months. Another medication gave me terrible side-effects (felt like I was having a stroke!), so I stopped that and haven't had a problem since. But, it is your life!
  4. Not really. Of course the SNP will keep campaigning for Scottish independence (rightly so), but after the "no" vote they did accept it and didn't make pathetic arguments that completely disregarded the outcome. They didn't like it, but they didn't try to overturn it either.
  5. I don't like all the "remainers" throwing their toys out of the pram because they didn't get their way in the referendum, and practically disregarding the result. It's pathetic. Why have a democracy if you won't listen to the majority!?
  6. Agreed. It takes 15 minutes to defrost the Mercedes "traditionally", which is an age by comparison.
  7. Not meaning to sound harsh, but you shouldn't have really be driving if you were panicking and not thinking straight... The worst thing to do after a period of going very slow is to go very fast. That's when another accident happens!
  8. I don't like people letting me down, and then saying I'm unreasonable for being angry about it!!
  9. I don't like having to leave work two hours into my shift due to stomach cramps, vomiting and... Well, you get the picture. We didn't eat any fresh meat last night so I have no idea what has caused it, but it feels like food poisoning or perhaps just a stomach bug. Either way, I'm now at home with a Cup-A-Soup and a pack of Prochlorperazine. Good times!!
  10. That's not bad for a petrol, almost as good as my turbo diesels!
  11. They could have at least moved forward and parked in the disabled bay! Given their driving (or parking) skills, it is fairly certain they have some sort of disability...
  12. I know, and I could lower that risk by warming the engine up prior to changing them, but the only problem with that is that it WILL NOT start in its current condition, so it's catch-22.
  13. Hmm... Maybe I should take up bird watching!!
  14. What that man said! Or do what I did with my 405 and wait 20 years, then you can pick one up for £500!
  15. I do like having tomorrow off, and a meal out at night with work colleagues... Not too sure how the latter will pan out as a few of them don't get on ("detest" would be a better word!), but as long as there is red wine I'll be happy!
