  1. It's an earthing issue - I just haven't had a chance to sort it it! My OH has a V40 - but it's not on the road lol I have spotted an old Defender that's been sat for a few years...might be worth knocking on a door and making a cheeky offer hehe What's she moaning about? They smell better than half the laundry products out there lol
  2. If you go down the Brodit route - get it from Fraction of the price compared to Brodit direct. I whole heartedly recommend Brodit!! Had one in the Focus and now one for the Mondeo. Tried convincing the OH to get one for her new CMAX. No such luck lol
  3. Unfortunately not - woman in a Corsa decides that she wanted the entire road and lurched into the middle of the road - just as I was coming out of a gap. It was either swerve and mount the curb or collide. My front dashcam doesn't work and the rear missed the plate. All I know is it was a woman in a dark coloured Corsa - maybe green. May have been 06 plate? All too vague to pursue. Tempted to trade the Mondeo in for something a bit more...intimidating...a tank perhaps...might just go look on ebay for a tank now!
  4. Nearly got ran off the road earlier. Popped a tyre on a kerb. Tyre has been on less than 2 weeks, less than 200 miles on it!
  5. Technically not me...but my other half lol However, she doesn't do forums - soo'll still be me!! About the car: It's an 06 in black,1.6 petrol in Zetec trim with a near full service history. 134k on the clock, just had new pads and discs all round, and a new exhaust. For it's age and mileage it's in pretty good nick. Few age related dents and chips - as you'd expect. Inside it's used, but still perfectly serviceable. Mechanically - it needs tracking doing (given that it's a fat Focus, I'm guessing it's prone to the same tracking issues?). Oh and an AC regas is also in its future. Overall, it's a very pleasant drive. Not dissimilar to the Focus. I was very surprised at how well it handles for its size!! Granted, compared to the Mondeo, it's a bit gutless...but it's not mine, I don't care lol It already has FOC stickers - got 'em in my renewal pack last week
  6. Try a lense from 3D glasses - they're polarised
  7. I've just been out and measured my jack in its lowest position - about 4-5" (I say measured...held my fingers up to it lol) The only thing I can think of to try (I genuinely have been pondering since I posted above) is to try slide the jack under the sill on its side, then twist. If you had a 2nd jack, you coukd also try jacking it up from the opposite end to gain a bit of clearance - then get the second jack under the second jacking point and carry on fron there
  8. I can see why you'd be feeling deflated...perhaps even a little... ...tyred... I wheely don't know what to suggest...but you did literally ask for it
  9. Ohh yes lol Hope so Her first night went quite well - even if my other half was up until 3am just to make sure she was asleep lol We had a few little accidents - but we have laminate flooring - so nice and easy to clean. She does much prefer going outside though - unfortunately, we can't leave the back door open like puppy-mummy did. Certainly won't take her long to get back on track with house-training. Other than that, she's making herself quite comfortable...currently fast asleep under the coffee table. Her other favourite spot so far is MY spot on the sofa (I guess it WAS my spot lol) Can't believe how chilled out she is already
  10. And a wonderful name it is too
  11. Freya - her Dad is a HUGE German Shepard called Thor (standing 6'2" on his hind legs). Mum is an absolutely gorgeous Husky called Luna - both Mum & Dad are very clever dogs!! Freya is already showing signs she's also a very clever little pooch!! And she is gorgeous!! Only one in the litter to have anything resembling Husky markings!!
  12. Oooo...forgot my like... Pick this little cutie up in about 17 hours
  13. Not had that for a while!! Tasty stuff!! How about Rattler & Magner? (Not that I've just suggested 2 of my favourite ciders lol)
  14. Can't sleep...currently 0430 and I haven't had any sleep whatsoever. Too hot, legs playing up & the other half is snoring...currently laid on the couch as it's the coolest part of the house at the moment
  15. laid plans and all that... Today I was going to tackle some more of the garden (removing what must be the best part of 2 tonne of gravel and replacing with paving slabs...that's another story...) Buuutttt...went with my other half to Barton with a friend of ours - friend wants a tattoo and Clare knows an amazing couple that have their own studio. Quite nice to put a face to the name. We then called in to see another mutual friend (we all know each other through cadets lol). Drink, chat etc then Clare's daughter turned up...soo we left her there (to be fair, it is her best mate's mum lol) Went to get in with some tidying up in the garden - too hot for manual labour - when Clare said something that reminded me - I needed to pick up my Grimsby... Off we go, pick up meds, call in to see Dad (well, Charlie the Cockatiel). Then Clare asks if we can "just pop into Pets & Home - just to get an idea of what we want!" £80, 3 shops, 2 hours later we go to pick up child and ended up staying for a BBQ. Now, the majority of this can go in the Like Thread...except for the whole 2t of gravel, 140 slabs and the house to sort ready for Freya coming on Wednesday!! Clare is out all day tomorrow, so is Lauren...soo...yeah...great fun (already shifted best part of a tonne of gravel and laid artificial grass)
