  1. I like receiving a large Jiffy bag in the post today! 3x100 watt equivalent(actually 10 watt) LED standard lightbulbs and 2x40 watt(3watt) LED cooker hood bulbs. Instant light now in the sittingroom and outside the back door as opposed to waiting 5 minutes for the old ones to heat up, and I can actually see what I'm burning now on the cooker!!! Am I sad in getting excited over LED bulbs?
  2. But have you actually tried it?
  3. Have you tried leaving the keys in the house and trying to open/start it?
  4. it used to have a handle but it broke!
  5. We buy bags of kindling from a charity shop, saves me the bother and helps a good cause as well. I take home the blocks from old pallets and split them by placing a handless old axe head and hitting it with a hammer! Only this time I managed to miss I'm now looking for a less dangerous method
  6. Mind you, I do have a mate who, many years ago, stole the old fashioned blue revolving beacon off the top of a cop car once!
  7. Ha ha! I must admit I have done some daft things in my day, but that would take the biscuit
  8. It was sitting in the scrappie and I asked if I could get it, so yes.......probably
  9. Don't think I've posted this before, apologies if I have(I'll blame Dr Murray's prescription!) but I do like the latest sign I acquired. Police sign off the front of one of the police stations. One side was broken but removed it and cleaned it up and stuck a light in it.
  10. Could I get that on repeat prescription?
  11. Thanks for that Dr Murray! The beer is making me pee more and I'm finding it difficult to do up the top button on my jeans with my injury. So by drinking stronger 'medicine' but in lesser amounts I'll still be able to administer correct dosages! Good call!
  12. I don't like hitting my thumb whilst chopping firewood! Currently numbing the pain with McEwan's 80/- but might need something a bit stronger! :-)
  13. Is he on Economy7? Just read a couple of posts on a local FB page about some E7 meters not changing to 'cheap' rate, therefore charging everything at the higher rate! Might be worth a look?
  14. Must be something wrong somewhere! We pay half that, 6 in the household. What does your dad's contract say? Would be worth getting a sparky in to check, make sure there's not a fire hazard somewhere. Surely if there is a fault the landlord will be liable?
  15. We shouldn't mock the afflicted..........but it's SO much fun!!!
